Learn to Compose!
NOTE: This product is available in the U.S. and Canada only. This is a special version of Compass priced for educators.
Compass sets out to demystify the often daunting task of learning music composition. Sibelius Compass is a unique program to help students learn how to compose. It includes lessons, worksheets, and self-tests covering a wide range of topics, leading on to complete composition projects. For each lesson, students study relevant interactive topics, test themselves with the built-in quiz, and try out what they've learned in the Tracker. Topics include melody, harmony, scales, rhythm, dynamics, transformations, timbre, texture, and form. Compass brings out the composer in all of us!
