So I learned Finale back in (cough cough) the late 80's, and have come back to it in just the past year or two.   While I've been able to "hunt and peck" my way through everything, I'd really like to find a class somewhere online (preferrably on demand) that covered "everything" (well, not everything, but you get the idea, a comprehensive training, not just spot videos.).

LInkedin Learning has one, but its from 2014, and seems dated.

 

Any Suggestions?

Scott, I can’t teach you “everything” but I’m willing to help you out as much as I can. Send me an email (address encoded in my signature) and we can chat.

" ... a comprehensive training, not just spot videos.)"

 

The suggestion of, "Take a look at

https://www.conqueringfinale.com/ "  is a good one, love them, but they are just "spot" or topic based vids. I know of no current up-to-date  online classes but youtube has lots of videos. Do a search.

I think spot classes are a better use of time/money than comprehensive classes, anyhow. Why spend time learning about triplets in simple entry, when you need help with playback? And vice-versa, as well?

 

The way I teach intro to Finale classes (for the Barbershop Harmony Society and Sweet Adelines Intl.) is to start with basic note entry, and then apply that to entering a simple score, covering the extras as we come across them. It’s much easier (IMHO) to learn what you need, for what you want to do. Everything else can be learned as needed.
