Tips for Sibelius and Finale

I have another gift for harpists coming up soon. For those of you who subscribe to the Harp Column, keep your eyes open for my next feature article about the two major musical notation programs: Sibelius and Finale. Slated to appear in the upcoming Nov/Dec issue, this article is written specifically for harpists who would like to know more about notating their own music and arrangements on the computer. There is something in there for everyone. Readers get to walk through each step of the process—from setting up a harp score to notating pedal/lever changes, rolled chords, harmonics, and much more.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to do another feature article for the Harp Column—and thus a platform to share this useful knowledge with other harpists—but this time it doesn’t stop there. Appearing alongside this article, as a special bonus for the more visual learners, I have also provided a series of accompanying tutorial videos showing exactly how to perform each step. (The videos will be available exclusively to Harp Column subscribers.)

It is a huge amount of value packed all together, and I hope readers find it useful. If you read it and find something unclear or want help with something I didn’t cover in the videos, contact me here!
