[Menvi-discuss] Another Braille Music Code Question.

Hi Stephanie,

I see the Forte indication on the line at the beginning of measure 24, but the symbols I previously listed are at the end of the previous line above. That line ends with a dot 5 so far as I can feel it correctly, and that’s what is making me assume it belongs with measure 24, and its the symbols before the dot 5 that are throwing me. They do not begin with a word sign to indicate its a dynamic abbreviation.

Hi Eileen,


Your mystery music signs are a dynamic sign for forte (dots 345, 124, 3( followed by an up bow (dots 126, 3). The dot 3 is used after the forte indication to clearly separate it from the up bow indication. There’s probably a rule about that somewhere in the Music Code, but one of the transcribers would have to chime in and tell us which rule it is.


Hope that helps,

Hi All, 


Another question on the Martini Gavotte in Suzuki Violin School, Violin Part Vol. 3 which I downloaded

from NLS.


I am reading through it and at the beginning of measure 24, there are 4 cells worth of symbols that I can’t figure out what they stand for. While I don’t remember having learned them, its possible I did and am not recalling their meaning. 


The first cell has dots 126 (what I think of mostly as the flat sign) then immediately following it the letters B & R then followed by dots 345 (what I think of as the word sign)Then a dot three & I think a dot 5 to indicate the measure is being continued on the next braille line.


The music that follows it is clear to me, but need some help with this little section. Any ideas on this?


Thanks as always for your help.
