What is Sibelius | First?

Sibelius | First is the fastest and easiest way for everyone to start writing music-from aspiring composers and songwriters, to teachers and students.

Magnetic Layout and other timesaving tools make it easy to get professional results fast-and the premium sound library plays back your compositions in stunning detail. When you're done, choose from a variety of ways to introduce your music to the world-make a video of your score, share directly to social media, export for iPad, and more.
