General considerations

• All parts are transposed.
• Each player has an own part.
• Use multi rests in parts and combine them where possible into one system. (Help us to protect and save the environment!)
• Preferably avoid auto system breaks, line or page breaks.
• Always use the same repeating’s (“roadmap”) for score and parts (meaning: do not create D.S. or other repeats in parts that are not in the score).
