The fastest, smartest, easiest way to write music

To qualify for this upgrade, you must have a single-user license for any previous version of Sibelius (regular, or academic, but not Sibelius First.)  Sibelius does not need to be installed on your comptuer in order to install the Sibelius 8 Upgrade - you only need to have registered your previous version with Avid.

Includes one year of free upgrades and free support from Avid!

Sibelius is now offering the Sibelius Upgrade to all users at the same price as the academic version, therefore there is no academic version or pricing for the upgrade.  Please order the "Regular" Edition unless you have a site license.

Note: Avid does not include DVDs with Sibelius 8 - only an activation card and download instructions are included in the boxed version.  If you wish to receive the DVDs for installing Sibelius 8, please order the Sibelius 8 Media Pack.
