A Gentle Introduction to MEI provides an easy, high-level initiation. The MEI 1st tutorial is a step-by-step introduction to encoding music notation and metadata in MEI. In addition, our FAQ document provides answers to commonly asked, non-technical questions.

Advanced users may also find it helpful to follow the technical development of MEI on Git Hub. If you spot problems with the schema or documentation, a public issue tracker is available there. Prior to switching to Git Hub, we used Google Code and SourceForge, but those repositories are no longer maintained.

We encourage everyone to participate in the MEI-L discussion list. Here one can get the latest updates on MEI development and events and ask questions or raise issues not addressed by the documentation or by the website.
