Writing tab music by hand back in the analog days used to be a time- consuming and expensive proposition. Now it can be achieved virtually with the push of a button--or, as this book so excellently points out, several buttons. If you have this book in your hands, you know that Notion is music notation software. What you may not know is exactly how to use it, and that is precisely what excellent guide will teach you.

There are 13 chapters here devoted to everything from The Basic, Getting Started and Developing Your Workflow to The Lead Sheet, Part Writing and Analysis and even Scoring to Video. There are chapters devoted to The Jazz Ensemble, Solo Piano and Guitar Techniques.

This Quick Pro Guide from Hal Leonard takes the novice, professional, or even part-time musician and guides him or her through the most effective ways to use the program and how to maximize Notion to serve their specific creative needs. There are supportive session files and practical projects here in the form of online media.

The idea of putting pen to paper in order to create music notation may be a romantic one but makes no sense in the face of extraordinary new software such as Notion. If you've ever worried over whether that was a dotted eighth note or an eighth note and rest, worry no more. Create Music with Notion is here to solve all your problems.
