Learning manual

This book explains how to begin learning LilyPond, as well as explaining some key concepts in easy terms. You should read these chapters in a linear fashion.

There is a paragraph See also at the end of each section, which contains cross-references to other sections: you should not follow these cross-references at first reading. When you have read all of the manual, you may want to read some sections again and follow those cross-references for more information.
