You may find this a little hard to believe, considering the incredible price and all, but Sibelius First doesn’t cut any corners, you have all of the compositional options that you need for a great score. From your standard notational requirements, like key signature input, note values and instrument line inputs, Sibelius First offers you more uncommon options, such as double accidental symbols, various dynamic directions and a very wide range performance markings, which you can input with one click (or type in manually if you’d prefer).

As well as including some of the same great new features of Sibelius 7 like Magnetic Layout and Dynamic Parts, Sibelius First comes with a premium sound library, so you can play back your compositions in stunning detail.

The software features one of the most user-friendly interfaces we’ve seen yet, and it’s dedicated to simply giving you what you need, how and when you need it. With the ability to upload your scores to Facebook and SoundCloud and even send a video of your score to YouTube, it would be fair to say this package will be quite popular with you singer-songwriters out there.
