NBS faculty member Jean-Francois Proulx will be teaching an introduction to Sibelius music composition software at our Summer Camps! He will be teaching this course both at our “Boot Camp” from July 18-22 and our “Renaissance and Baroque” camp from August 1-5. Older students will learn about the features of this wonderful program that let’s you write and print any kind of music, as well as any professional edition! Once you have mastered the basic, this user-friendly program is easy to explore on your own.
Students will be requested to download a free 30-day trial of Sibelius one week before the beginning of classes, and bring a laptop to school so they can practice each feature as we learn them!

Younger students will also experience Sibelius, but will be requested to also write music by hand. There will be a special emphasis on how to write a score to communicate clearly their musical ideas, as well as common pitfalls and how to avoid them!
