Finale: Drum Notation

The CTC presents Finale: Drum Notation virtual workshop
Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Do you end up using slashes almost exclusively to save time creating your drums parts in Finale? Notating drums is simple once a few techniques are learned and a few tweaks made to the default drum set layout. In this class we will learn how to create four different types of drum notation: rhythmic notation, slashes, kicks over time and drum set notation to the Berklee standard. We will discuss:

  •   Creating your own custom drum set layouts
  •   The staff tool
  •   Layers
  •   Articulations
  •   Shortcuts
