Note: Clicking a "Hear" link will open a playable Finale file. In order to hear the music with Finale NotePad, you need to click on the green triangle button in its toolbar. You may need to increase the volume settings on your computer, since the playback volume of Finale files is rather low. Even though these files may be printed, it is not suggested to do so, since the fonts and graphics will not appear as they should. Clicking a "View" link will open a PDF file, which is meant to be printed.

The size of Finale files varies between 70 and 110 Kb, whereas the PDF files vary between 130 and 4000 Kb. Therefore, if your internet connection is slow, it is advisable to browse through the music by clicking the "Hear" links instead of the "View" links.
