The following tutorial will get you started quickly in enjoying some of Composer's main features. This tutorial can typically be completed in about  40 minutes, but much more quickly if you just read it on the screen rather than actually do the tutorial steps yourself.

As you follow the steps of this tutorial, you should feel free to explore side tours on your own. Click buttons; try menu commands; add, change, and delete music symbols. To return to the place where you were in the tutorial, use the multiple-level Undo command in the Edit menu, or type CTRL+Z, as many times as you need. Also, at various points in the tutorial, you might want to save your work, using the Save As command in the File menu.

After completing this tutorial, you should be able to successfully explore many of Composer's features on your own without needing to refer to this User Guide.
