Mavis Kallestad, Finale clinician, (read About Mavis) began teaching Finale workshops in 1996 in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. During the past fourteen
years, Mavis has taught Finale hands-on workshops to over 1300 musicians, music educators and church musicians in the midwest.
Over the years, she has developed many practical Finale tutorial projects with written out sequential directions to use in her workshops.
These tutorials have proven to be a valuable resource for musicians and music educators who wish to learn the quickest, most direct way
to use Finale music notation software. All of these tutorials are now available in her Building Successful Finale 'Chops' books for Finale 2014 (Third Edition) and for Finale 2012 (Second Edition). The 21 tutorials provide step-by-step Finale training using simple projects and easy to understand directions that will help you learn everything from the basics to new features, and will help you take your Finale skills to the next level.
