Sibelius Tips:

  • Avid does not include DVDs in the boxed version of Sibelius.  The boxed version only includes an activation card and download instructions.  Please order the Sibelius Media Pack if you wish to receive the DVDs.
  • Sibelius requires a low latency ASIO or AU compatible audio interface (soundcard) for using the sound library. We recommend the GuitarFace II USB, AudioLink III USB or most any of the audio interfaces in our buyer’s guide. Contact us for more information.
  • A USB MIDI keyboard makes entering notes into Sibelius much faster. The i2 GarageKey 37 is an ideal USB MIDI keyboard – just plug it in, and it works. For more options, visit our keyboard buyer’s guide.

To use Sibelius Academic, you must obtain a serial number by submitting proof of education eligibility to Avid.   Please read the eligibility guidelines at before ordering.

If you are a church musician, private music teacher, or want to purchase for your son or daughter in primary school you do not qualify for the academic verison. However, we can help you purchase at a substantial discount!  Contact us for details.
