CNST 161 - Music Notation Software


Semester Offered: Second Semester, Second Module
Credits (Range): 1 Hour
The two most popular programs for music notation are currently Finale and Sibelius.  They are both very powerful,
complex, and require a substantial learning curve.  This course provides a directed learning experience with both
programs.  Students who complete the course will acquire the following skills in both Finale and Sibelius:
 • formatting staves for solo instruments, voice, and small and large ensembles
 • formatting notation for use by performers and as study scores
 • utilizing musical symbols for traditional and non-traditional notation
 • extracting instrumental parts from a score
 • saving their finished recording in a format for distribution (printed and PDF)
Students will learn primarily through hands-on experience.  Each component of the course will include a introduction
with score materials and practical experience with hands-on exercises.
