Product Reviews by our customers
Really not sure how to rate Sibelius First. When it doesn't crash it is a wonderful programme, but within 3 days it would no longer work. Had to do complete computer reInstall as just reinstalling the programme didn't work. Still working at the moment but time will tell!
