Dorico for teachers and students

Dorico is a perfect tool for students, and helps teachers and educators produce assignments and arrangements.

As a student writing music for school, university or performance, you need an efficient program that does everything you need and more.

As an educator producing teaching materials and arrangements or assessing submitted work, you need a time-saving tool that understands notation as well as you do.



Perfect portability

Dorico runs beautifully on your laptop, so you can capture a moment of inspiration or complete an assignment wherever you are. Its simple, streamlined user interface fits comfortably on a single display, with fast keyboard access to every feature — ideal for student laptops. And no need for external keypads, MIDI devices or other hardware.

Assignments and teaching materials

Teachers often need to produce assignments and hand-outs for students, mixing music, text and graphics on the same page. Dorico’s powerful and flexible page layout features make this the work of moments.

Modern notations

Students using modern techniques such as open meter, complex tuplets and microtonality often have to use clumsy workarounds in other software. Dorico’s rich support for advanced notations makes it far easier to get your ideas down on paper.

Universal Indian Drum Notation

Dorico is the only scoring software to support Universal Indian Drum Notation, the new notation system for tabla and other Indian drums, from Keda Music, designed by internationally renowned tabla player Kuljit Bhamra MBE. You and your students will be able to write music for these expressive, beautiful instruments quickly and easily.

Great-sounding playback

Using Dorico’s playback features, teachers and educators can quickly produce recordings for students to rehearse to, while students mock up works in progress to check how they sound before the music hits the stand. Built upon Steinberg’s world-class audio engine and virtual instruments, Dorico’s playback is easy to use.
