Music for the modern classroom
Education happens everywhere, and Sibelius is no different. With AI-powered features that help students grow and understand music, and consistent updates that push the limits in notation and scoring, you're guaranteed to have the latest technology in your classroom.
Now with flexible and scalable licensing and deployment options, you can get Sibelius on every device you need it—whether you have school computers and iPads or personal devices. Teach and learn virtually anywhere, even through a combination of network and team licensing.
Bring Sibelius Ultimate and every added feature designed specifically for education to your classroom with 85% off an annual subscription.
There are two types of licensing to suit your style of teaching and learning. Whether you prefer a traditional classroom, a flipped classroom, or you work remotely on iPads, there’s a system designed for you.
Transitioning your school to network and team licensing
New to Sibelius?
Bring Sibelius to your classrooms with a network license and start installing and controlling Sibelius Ultimate on as many computers as you need. For your students and staff who bring their own devices into school or do homework and classwork at home, the team license will be the perfect choice.
For schools with a hybrid learning setup, a hybrid licensing setup is ideal. It includes:
- One network license to cover your in-school computers
- One team license to cover all students and staff needing Sibelius Ultimate
For schools that are completely remote or use iPads rather than desktop computers in the classroom, we recommend:
- One team license for students and staff needing Sibelius Ultimate
For existing perpetual license holders
Schools with a perpetual license of Sibelius have been able to upgrade and stay current with a Software Update + Support plan for $29 USD/seat/year. This option will remain in place. But for schools looking to optimize flexibility and the value of their spending, a network subscription is ideal for use in the classroom, and a team license subscription is ideal for schools with staff and students using their own devices.
For existing multi-seat subscription license holders
If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll benefit from the new pricing when you next renew your license because it’s half the price you are used to paying. Supplement your overall license with a new team license to enable a hybrid of on-prem and flexible licenses for your staff and students.
In the Classroom
Sibelius Ultimate is packed with features to help music teachers in the classroom. Start composing from musical snippets called Ideas. Access thousands of worksheets with the Worksheet Creator. And give teachers the power to manage students’ files, freeze machines, and more, with Classroom Control.
If you teach music, you know how long it can take to produce good curriculum materials. That's why we built the Worksheet Creator into Sibelius Ultimate, in collaboration with experienced teachers and educators.
Creating a music worksheet
Choose from six main categories in the Worksheet Creator:
- Elements of music covers music theory and musicianship.
- Writing and creating music includes notation, transposing, arranging, composing, and improvising.
- Selected repertoire has over 400 pieces for voice, piano, and other instruments, including songs in 14 different languages and 50 Bach keyboard pieces suitable for study, arranging, and performance. Plus, there are 45 poems to set to music.

- Posters, flashcards, and games contains nearly 200 options, from notes and keys to pictures of instruments.

Each of these categories contains further sub-categories. For example, Elements of Music includes 14 areas, such as rhythm, scales, sight-reading, and ear training. With a few clicks, you can narrow down your choice to just what you need. Then, simply select how many questions you want, and the ready-to-use student worksheet and answer key are ready to go.
