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!

I just added a brand new Introductory video, so I encourage you to take a look at that!

In addition to that a brand new section called Nailing Navigation was added to the very beginning of the whole series. I realized that sometimes just getting around the program and getting around your scores can be time consuming in Finale but when you know the proper techniques you can save a ton of time doing these basic tasks. So don't overlook the importance of something as simple as navigation, watch these videos for some great pointers!
