Secondary School Software Suite

The Department is currently updating its eduSTAR Secondary School Software Suite to provide Victorian government secondary schools with comprehensive, up-to-date digital tools and software to support the implementation of the Victorian Curriculum and achievement of Education State targets.

During Term 3, 2017, Victorian government secondary schools were provided with access to 20 seats (licences) of the latest version of Sibelius. These are perpetual licences (do not expire) with one year of upgrades and support provided.

Sibelius 
Sibelius is considered one of the world’s foremost music composition teaching resources. It leads the market in overall software functionality and support infrastructure. Music teachers who incorporate Sibelius into their lessons are able to demonstrate music theory and composition concepts, and students are able to create their own pieces of music while developing their understanding of these concepts.

This software can be used to support the implementation of Victorian Curriculum: Arts – Music.

Sibelius software is required for creating and submitting an assessment for VCE Music Performance – Unit 2. Key skills that the unit teaches for composition is to input and edit work using digital technologies, software and equipment and for improvisation it is to record and edit the improvised performance using digital technologies, software and equipment.
