Sibelius: Articulation Markings & Voices; Flipping Stem Direction

In this tutorial, I show you how to add staccato, accent, and tent markings, otherwise known as articulation markings. I also explain how to draw ties using your keypad, input notes in multiple voices, and flip the direction of stems on your staff.

Sibelius is a great music notation software program for those of you without MIDI keyboards, as it is very easy to navigate using only your QWERTY keys and numeric keypad.
