Daniel Spreadbury is the product Marketing Manager for Steinberg, the company that recently released Dorico, a new music engraving software program. Spreadbury used to be Sibelius’s senior product manager. He started working at Sibelius in May 1999 and was involved in lots of different aspects of the company’s operations. He began in the technical support team, and quickly took on the authoring of the documentation that ships with Sibelius. Before too long, he and his friend and colleague Andrew Davis were put to work on SibeliusMusic.com, the community-based self-publishing site for Sibelius users, taking advantage of the unique Scorch web browser plug-in, which opened for business in 2001.

Before Spreadbury came to work at Sibelius, he obtained my degree in music from Oxford University, and was one of the two tenor lay clerks in the choir of Ely Cathedral for two years. Spread bury also sings and is a choral conductor, currently working with The Cantilena Singers in Cambridgeshire.

Spreadbury left Avid at the end of October 2012 after 13 years working on Sibelius to become the product Marketing Manager for Steinberg, the company that recently released Dorico. Spreadbury may be contacted on FacebookLinkedIn or Twitter.
