Writing a guitar school with Dorico only

I want to write a guitar school using only Dorico. Right off the bat I ran into problems regarding the first page, which came with a staff line. I wanted to delete the staff, used Layout Options, staff visibility, and all that, but the first bar stayed on the page. I then created a front page without anything on it, wanted to write a text, and that didn´t work , either, because I couldn´t choose any text options from the “write” menu.

To add text outside the music, you need to use text frames, rather than text items (which need to be attached to somewhere in a flow).

Check out this Discover Dorico session John did about creating title pages:
