Working with Music

Now that I selected the music that I will use in my project, I have to work with them.
I have to create the music score that I can use to produce my printed outcome.


To generate the music score I found this program called Sibelius. It is an app that allows you to write music scores on the computer or modify a pre-existent one. It can also read midi files and translate it automatically into a music score.
I downloaded the midi version of the pieces of music on my computer and I opened it with Sibelius.

In this example, I opened Nothing Else Matters by Metallica and this is the automatic results from Sibelius. It is still not complete and I have to work a bit more on it because I will use just one instrument to create my score, the principal. Then I will have to adjust the key to make sure that it is the proper one. Finally, I will have to select just the first minute of the song so that I am sure that it is perfectly aligned to the mp3 that I am going to play in my project. After I finished to edit it I can export it as PDF.

This is the final result. Now what I need to do is separate every stave of the score into a single file in order to be able to integrate it with the dance score and generate the final PDF that I will print in my project. I do it using Photoshop.
