Introduction to Finale Music Software
The Finale music software is the industry standard, and an invaluable tool for all composers and arrangers. Finale is used for notating simple one-line melodies as well as arranging complicated vocal and orchestral scores, and it enables the musician to write and play back music efficiently – and the “playback” is heard using authentic voices and instrumental timbres. Through the use of a computer, electronic keyboard, and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), students can play and notate their music simultaneously. 4 Sessions per Week for 1 Semester. Prerequisite: Basic Music Theory or placement exam.
