On-Line Study Sibelius 7.5 with Paul Lukasiewicz

Hello All! 
 I'd like to let you know about my first course offered on Udemy (!) It's "Sibelius 7 Basics" and it's perfect for anyone who is new to Sibelius (perhaps switching from Finale,) or just wants to learn more and become more familiar with how Sibelius works and some of it's shortcuts. The course is listed at $25, but if any on your students are interested in signing up in the next two weeks, they can use the coupon code "firstcourse" (all one word) and enroll in the class for $15. If any of you teachers are interested in checking out Sibelius 7 Basics, please let me know and I'll send you a coupon code to try it for free! I'd appreciate any feedback as well! 
The course covers the basics a person needs to know in order to use Sibelius. Here's the course description:

This course assumes that you are already a "musician" (ie. you already know how to read music, play an instrument or sing, and follow a score.) This course will teach you the basics of inputting music into the computer notation program, "Sibelius." I will be demonstrating using version 7.5, however, while what is displayed on the screen will look different for versions previous to 7, the basic functions and shortcuts are all the same.
By the end of the course, the student will be able to:
  • Be familiar with the basic functions of inputing music into Sibelius
  • Add lyrics to a score
  • Transpose a score
  • Export their score in several different formats
The neat thing about Udemy is that you can take the class whenever you want to. All the lessons are videos (screen captures,) so you can sign up and take the classes at your pace. Once you sign up for a class, the material is always available, so you can review it at any time. Udemy also has an iPhone and iPad app, so you can take a class while your on the road or in a hotel (anywhere you have an Internet connection.) The only real difference between Sibelius 7 and 7.5 is the "timeline." Everything else works the same.
