Dear colleagues,

I am happy to inform you about some new training materials being 
available on the MEI website from today.
They are grouped under the heading "MEI 1st" and can be found at 

MEI 1st is a set of tutorials, that has been developed as part of the 
DFG/NEH project. It will help you to learn about different aspects of 
the encoding scheme of the Music Encoding Initiative (MEI), and acts as 
a guideline from the first steps into MEI through more advanced aspects 
of music encoding. The tutorials cover the following aspects:
• General MEI Document Structure
• Creating a new MEI Document
• Encoding Music Notation
• Exploring the Header

Some tutorials, such as "Encoding Music Notation" and "Exploring the 
Header", are divided into different chapters and ordered according to 
increasing complexity. Each tutorial begins with an overview of the 
corresponding features of MEI and concludes with a test of the 
principles addressed in that section.
We hope you enjoy learning more about MEI with MEI 1st – your feedback 
is more than welcome.

I would also like to thank Maja, Rya Martin, Irmlind Capelle, Kristin 
Herold, Benjamin, Joachim, Johannes, Perry and others for their 
substantial support of MEI 1st.

Best wishes,
