Stacks Image 11
Monday August 12, 2019
with Ken Gee (ON)
This special seminar on Monday night offers an introduction to some of the software and hardware used to produce today’s sheet music on the computer.

Learn some basic concepts about how modern “music engravers” produce music for modern music publishers, both for printed books and for digital music. The focus will be on Finale software demonstrated on the Mac, but the presentation applies to a wide range of similar software running on multiple platforms. You will get tips on what you need to make your own printed music at home.

Ken is a longtime professional digital music engraver for Frederick Harris Music and the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. He not only creates music examples for RCM exams, but has also created many popular theory and harmony books including series by Mark Sarnecki and Barbara Wharrum. He has been using software for music notation, as well as audio and MIDI editing, for many years.
