Join composer and orchestrator Thomas Goss in this free QuickLook Guide that teasingly shows you the basics of music notation and score preparation using Sibelius 7, an amazingly powerful program that will get you creating stunning scores in no time...
We searched the world to find the best Sibelius teacher on the planet. But we were looking for more than just a Sibelius expert; we were searching for a true professional musician who uses Sibelius every day to create his awesome art. After many months we finally ended our search in New Zealand where we met master composer Thomas Goss.
Thomas knows that as a composer, orchestrator and musician, creating clear and legible scores and parts for the performers is super important. It makes the difference between a very convincing first-read or a not-so-inspired rendition of what you know to really be beautiful music... So, when it's time to notate your music and present it to the world, Thomas shows you why Sibelius 7 is the obvious choice.
Get to know Sibelius in this free QuickLook course and then join Thomas for his next 4 courses where he takes you on a notational journey that begins with creating a basic lead sheet and "crescendoes poco a poco" to a full orchestral film score!
So grab your virtual score paper and let Thomas Goss show you how easy it is to make your music look its best.
Very impressed with the instructor he is very clear in his teaching. I would like to have learned how to input triplets, repeats, first and second endings, and coda systems in this section but all in all I enjoyed it and learned!

Pretty decent course this was. I know it was only a introduction for the program but now i'm really interest in writing a piece of score like this, instead of playing it.

This course gives a very basic overview of the power of Sibelius and is perfect for someone who is trying to get started with the program but isn't looking to sit through many intensive tutorials. Would recommend for anyone upgrading their version of Sibelius or someone who is starting out with Sibelius for the very first time. May be too basic for longtime users, but will give a good overview of the updated interface in version 7.

Very straightforward, easy to understand. I like the idea of exploring Sibelius possibilities via specific examples taken from a lead sheet to a full orchestral score.
