I have found a symbol that is not in the tutorial, it is a small, bold flat line printed just below a quarter note. To better illustrate without a picture, visualize a quarter note in the second space up in the treble clef, an "A". In the center of the space just below the "A", there is a short flat line. What does it mean?

Thanks in advance.

It is called a tenuto mark. It means to hold the note to its fullest value without seperation from the following note
