Superb reference book on music notation standards,
By A Customer
This review is from: Essential Dictionary of Music Notation (The essential dictionary series]) (Paperback)
This excellent little book is indispensable for anyone writing music on manuscript paper. It is organised alphabetically giving such details as whether bar lines precede the clef sign in a change of key; the order of accidentals in a complex chord; placement of slurs on grace notes; the correct angles for beams and much, much, much more. Absolutely indispensable at any price, and at this price should be on every musician's bookshelf.
