Overview: Sibelius is a music notation program that allows you to create sheet music, from a simple chord sheet to a full orchestral score. You can enter music into the program either by using the piano keyboard, computer keyboard, or scanner (with existing sheet music). There is a Sibelius work station on the third floor of the Davis Family Library near the M1500's (call number).
What it is:
Creating sheet music so that others can perform it.
What you need:
Music notation software, such as Sibelius.
How you do it:
Enter the music into the software, either by playing it on a piano keyboard attached to the computer, entering it via a computer keyboard, or scanning and then editing existing sheet music.
Tips and suggestions:
Scanning often requires a lot of editing after the fact - it may be quicker to enter the music from scratch, depending on the length.
