• Depending on the conductor, scores are either transposed or concert scores. Please check in with the library before arranging or even sending pdf’s!
• In the score, parts may be combined on one staff. However, in the end, each player needs an own part! (Also see guidelines for parts.)
• 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).
The order of instruments
Keep the order of players of the saxophone section. For example, if tenor saxophone is supposed to play soprano saxophone, it should be kept in the place of the tenor (e.g. as instrument change).
