[Menvi-discuss] Question On Music Code...

Hi Eileen,


Please tell us what, if anything, follows the dots 1-2-6 that follows the note B-flat in that passage.  Dots 1-2-6 as a single-cell sign indicates flat but dots 1-2-6 can be the first cell in a multi-cell braille sign.  For example, the sign for double-bar uses two cells.  It is written with dots 1-2-6 in the first cell and dots 1-3 in the second cell.

Hi, Eileen. Could it be that the note after the B-flat is also flat? I do not know of any examples where there is a flat before and after the note unless it applies to the second note.

Hi All,


I think I asked this a while back, but want to be sure. I’m working on the Martini Gavotte in Suzuki Violin School, Violin Part Vol. 3 which I downloaded from NLS. The transcription is from 1977.


In the ninth measure there is a B-flat which I know is the correct note The flat sign dots 126 is written both before and after the B note. I know its an error in today’s music code where an accidental should come once before the note, but was it the way flats or other accidentals were expressed in Braille in the code from 1977?
