Music Notation

Sibelius 7.5 – This is the notation software I recommend: very powerful, much easier to learn and use than Finale, not full of bugs like Encore
Sibelius 7.5 Academic – Student / teacher edition
Finale 2014 Professional Edition – Considered the industry standard (that may change!), but difficult to learn
Finale 2014 Academic – Student / teacher edition
