In this five-part tutorial series, we’ll review the basics of Avid Sibelius so you can get started fast and make music as quickly as possible. These tutorials are designed mostly for those new to Sibelius, but existing users may also discover helpful tips along the way.

In this lesson, we’ll jump right in and cover the most fundamental elements of music notation: notes and rhythms. We’ll go over how to enter music using the mouse, a virtual on-screen keyboard, and your computer keyboard, and we’ll use your MIDI keyboard to play music right into Sibelius. We’ll also cover how to select, copy, move and delete music in your score.
