Our son has recently started a music degree and says he needs Sibelius for his laptop. An amateur musician myself, I've always been happy with the free Finale Notepad and Finale Printmusic, but I realise that Sibelius is also very good.
However, from what I can see, the full Sibelius pack is very expensive and I have the impression it's more suited for unis themselves and professionals where they buy it with so many licences.
The next one down is 'Sibelius Student'.
Would the Student Sibelius edition be good enough? I've asked our son to find out from the lecturers but I thought I'd ask you guys as well.
