SB110 Sibelius Fundamentals II reviews and builds upon the skills learned in the SB101 Sibelius Fundamentals I course. Introducing many new Sibelius features, the course covers how to create a simple lead sheet, complete with chord symbols, lyrics, repeat barlines, repeat endings, repeat text, and rhythmic slash notation. Additionally, the course introduces more advanced notations and some of Sibelius’ most creative features, which can help you quickly compose, arrange, or rearrange a piece of music.

The SB101 Sibelius Fundamentals I and SB110 Sibelius Fundamentals II courses will prepare candidates for the Avid Certified | Sibelius Specialist certification exam.


This course is designed for Hobbyists, Composers, Arrangers and Publishers.


An understanding of the fundamental concepts of Sibelius as covered within the SB101 Sibelius Fundamentals I course. A basic ability to read music and a clear understanding of musical concepts such as pitches, rhythms, time signatures, key signatures, and tempo is highly recommended.
