Dorico Elements

Dorico Elements is the entry-level member of the Dorico product family. Dorico Elements includes many of the powerful and time-saving features of Dorico Pro. With a simple user interface that is quick to master, Dorico Elements provides fluid input and editing, beautiful graphical notation, and great-sounding playback, delivering results that maintain the overall standard for which Dorico is renowned.

Composing, arranging — or just writing and printing out music — is made much quicker and more efficient with Dorico. Thanks to its intelligent design, it automatically adjusts the notation as you write. With nearly 1,500 sounds included, arrangements can be played back with exceptional realism and, with no workarounds needed for advanced notation, Dorico produces excellent results much more quickly than has been possible before.


With its streamlined, natural user interface, students and those with less experience in scoring can compose and arrange straight into Dorico, making learning the language of music notation much faster and more intuitive. Editing and making changes — such as instrument, time signature or key — are straightforward, with the notation instantly and correctly adapting to include them, reinforcing the learning outcome. For teachers, producing teaching materials and hand-outs that mix music and text is easy, and it's never been quicker to adapt arrangements for your band, orchestra or other school ensemble:

  • Home users and students.
  • Amateur composers and arrangers.
  • Secondary students.
  • Instrumental teachers.
  • Church/worship musicians.
  • Songwriters.
  • Entry-level music notation.
  • Easy and fast to learn.
  • Input via mouse, keyboard or MIDI keyboard.
  • Unique popovers for efficient input.
  • Effortlessly create publication-quality music.
  • Friendly manual and video tutorials.
  • Write for up to 12 instruments.
  • Basic sound library included.
  • Beautiful output by default.


  • Normal and double Accidentals.

I really didn't want to invest in another notation program. After trying the free version for a short time I realised just how quickly I could enter and compose scores. Elements does restrict some of the layout functions and the number of instruments. I am using the downloaded version which doesn't allow use on more than one computer. The electronic licensing felt a bit complicated but so far it has worked ok.

With any comprehensive program there is a learning curve but the logical design makes this fairly painless. I'm still learning but really enjoying the process. Somehow the controls seem to encourage experimentation during composition. Halion and the provided instruments produce a reasonable sound but it is easy to use alternative VST libraries.

I feel a further investment in the pro version, maybe to celebrate the lifting of lockdown.
