More Sibelius training in Marin County this October


My friend and former colleague Bruce Munson got in touch to let me know that he will be running two more Sibelius training sessions at the Marin Youth Center in Marin County, CA this coming October.

On 2 October, between 9am and 4pm, Bruce will be running an Intermediate to Advanced Sibelius training session:

A continuation of the Beginning to Intermediate Sibelius training, this workshop focuses on learning intermediate to advanced techniques in using the software. Topics covered include using Filters, Plug-ins, exploring the House Styles menu, and learning about layout and formatting. The training will consist of both directed modules and self-paced projects and is designed for music teachers, music students, composers/ arrangers, and music copyists. The workshop also includes a tour through the new features of Sibelius 6.

On 23 October, between 10am and 3pm, Bruce will be running an Open Lab:

This four-hour hands-on workshop is designed to give each attendee supervised practice in using Sibelius notation software. Attendees of this workshop bring in their own project(s) to work on and complete during the duration of the workshop. Attendees have the benefit of one-on-one help with their project(s), learning the specific techniques and features in the software required to efficiently complete the project(s). Projects could involve techniques such as formatting, creating worksheets, arranging, working with parts, working with lyrics, and music scanning. This workshop is a great follow-up to the Beginning to Intermediate Sibelius workshop, and is designed for music teachers, music students, composers/ arrangers, and music copyists using any version of Sibelius.

The former session costs $200 to attend, and the latter costs $135 to attend; places are limited on both courses. To register your interest and book your place, head over to the MYC’s web site.
