How To Buy

Sibelius Licensing and All Access Plans

Get more affordable choices to access Sibelius. Choose a low-cost subscription. Purchase and own the software outright (perpetual license). Crossgrade from Finale, Notion, Encore, or Mosaic at a special discount. Or maximize your composition capabilities with new Sibelius + Ultimate Bundles at great savings.

In addition, all Sibelius options now come with an Avid All Access plan (see below), giving you access to all future releases and support for the duration of your plan. Please note that all Sibelius updates and upgrades will now only be available through an All Access plan*. This enables you to get access to more frequent streams of new features instead of waiting for a major release.
