The Finale music notation products are incredibly powerful, flexible tools for writing music, but as a result of their abilities their controls are in some cases equally complex and confusing.  In The Finale Projects, a new tutorial workbook by Tom Carruth, the writer attempts to take Finale users through the program with ten chapters dedicated to the most common and useful parts of Finale .  Beginning with basic note entry, and score setup, Carruth continues with chapters on advanced formatting techniques, jazz related scoring techniques, percussion scoring, and the creation of tests, worksheets, and exercises for classroom use.  A book of this type has been badly needed for years, following many of the styles and visual cues that have been used for years in the "For Dummies" series.  The Finale Projects is by no means meant for beginners alone however.  The information and hints provided in the books many tutorials cover topics that will increase almost any Finale user's productivity.
