Unfortunately, we do not really have such a proper tutorial you are
maybe looking. We only have different examples in the wiki . Some of
them also have additional graphics for illustration, e.g., this rather
complex example . Furthermore, we have some graphical descriptions of
the ontology itself, see .
Well, afaik, this modelling should be valid. Of course, it might be a
bit confusing for someone new in this topic. So mo:label and mo:Label
are two individual terms. You could view the former as "has label" and
the later is the class Label.

You could use foaf:made or the reverse property foaf:maker to illustrate
this relation. You could browse, for example, BBC Music  or
MusicBrainz with an RDFa viewer (e.g. ) to get an impression how the
Music Ontology is already applied in a web site.
Please don't hesitate to ask, if you have further questions.
