Depending on available time and your desire to
increase your familiarity with Finale, you may wish to duplicate some
of the brief examples below. These contain a variety of
situations that require a broad knowledge of Finale tools, and,
Gavotte I (J.S. Bach)
Note that measures 9-11 only contain two beats due to
the repeat sign splitting the measures. This requires that a
different meter signature be inserted, then, hidden. This
example will also allow practice creating repeat brackets, which must
be hidden on the lower staff.
This example requires adding lyrics and chord
symbols. Notice that there is no left bar line on a single
Hymn (without lyrics)
This example requires the use of layers due to
differing rhythms on a shared staff.
Music Theory Example
Finale is also helpful for constructing examples for
music theory assignments or tests. This example requires the
creation of figured bass symbols, and stem flipping.
