Core Data Practice

I was wondering, Based on the learning I did though out Treehouse I build a simple notes app that have just two view controllers:

table view controller - to list all the notes.

view controller - to create new notes.

this works very similar to the regular iOS 7 notes app.

right now I only have an NSMutableArray of *notes in my table view controller to store the notes that I have.

Now, I never worked with Core Data (and databases in general) and Iโ€™m interested in connecting this app to Core Data so I could eventually release it to the app store, be more efficient with memory management and having the app world fast and save the user data (all the good stuff from the little I know is possible to do with a database).

So, how would you recommend me to get this practice? Couldn't find a project in the iOS track that covers this topic so i'm asking your opinion..
