COMPUTER PROGRAMS

MUSIC NOTATION PROGRAMS

*use your Juilliard ID for an educational discount where possible

SIBELIUS

Music notation software. I use this (have done since I was a teenager). Unfortunately it is now on a monthly subscription after it was bought by AVID, though AVID (parent company) is providing access to their software at no charge to educational institutions during the Covid-19 shutdown for those working remotely.

FINALE

Unforunately I don't know much about Finale as I haven't ever used it. Musicians tend to use either Sibelius or Finale, depending on what they were introduced to first as a child.

MUSESCORE

I don't know much about musescore, other than that it is an open source, free, music software notation program. With absolutely no knowledge, I would have to imagine it is fairly limited in its capabilities.

MUSIC CREATION PROGRAMS

*use your Juilliard ID for an educational discount where possible

GARAGEBAND

Available for free on any apple, iOS product. Has the ability to record, edit, and create digital media using their soundbank of apple loops and instruments.

LOGIC

The professional version of Garageband. Like with Sibelius/Finale, musicians tend to learn how to use either Logic or Protools. I like to use Logic for creation, and Protools for editing live audio.

PROTOOLS

Operated by parent company AVID. See note above under Sibelius.

ABLETON LIVE

Digital audio software sequencer.
