I sincerely wished that both Garritan and Make Music would consider having an academic discount for the sound libraries. I teach hundreds of composition students who literally take each and every word I say as gospel. The only reason I chose to work in Finale since 1999 is because that was the program that I was introduced to by my teachers. Not to be mean, but other very popular competitive libraries even offer 4550% off. My students and their parents have literally spent thousands of dollars simply by my recommendations over the years and I am sure that other music programs are either exactly the same if not more.
