Hello and welcome to Conquering Finale! My name is Jason Loffredo and I will be your host and tutor as you learn ALL there is to know about Finale.

I have over 25 years worth of experience with Finale and as a copyist have worked on everything from Hollywood movies to Broadway shows to published classical music and everything in between, mostly with Finale. This entire series of tutorial videos will be a constant and likely long work in progress, so please be patient as I continue to add categories and videos. I hope you enjoy the videos and more importantly I hope that this tutorial series will get you all on you way to Conquering Finale!

Repeats Redux


The lessons on the Repeat Tool are now available!

These videos will cover everything you could ever need to know about the Repeat Tool from first and second (and third, fourth...) endings, D.S. al Codas, D.C. al Fines, Mid System Coda Systems, Mid Measure Rests and SO much more!  The last video is a walk-through of a pretty complex repeat structure which will tie all of the lessons together and give you an idea of what can be done with repeats in Finale.
