Works well as a textbook for a Finale class, music technology class or workshop.
Works well as an individual study text for Finale beginners as well as intermediate users who want to get up-to-date on Finale’s time-saving features and shortcuts.

Recently updated to accompany Finale V25*

*The biggest change with Finale v25 is that the software has been updated to 64-bit, which means it will run smoother, faster and be compatible with computer operating systems into the future. There are very few differences between using Finale v25 and the Finale 'Chops' 2014 book directions. The Finale interface, menus, commands and shortcuts are unchanged, except for just a couple of items. The Version 25 ADDENDUM lists any minor differences to the tutorial directions.
