Help with creating a handbell score?

Postby jdecker » Mon Sep 17, 2018 6:18 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm posting to ask about how to create a successful handbell score. I've been ringing handbells for about 9 years and I've been using Sibelius to create scores (mostly SATB and string quartet arrangements) for just over 4 years. I'm running Sibelius First 7 on a Mac.

There doesn't seem to be any good options for how to create a handbell score, including the special symbols for mart, mart lift, dampen, etc, nor does there seem to be a way to add the needed bells at the top of the score as is customary. I've never worked with plugins before, but something tells me I might need to use plugins to make this happen? Any help in very simple terms would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't be surprised if your version of Sibelius doesn't have any option for handbells. Small comfort that full versions have all you have asked for. Worth a look through your manual, though.
