Here You can view the full score and individual parts for a Haydn symphony. Look particularly at the Horn parts to see how sections of rest are handled.

Note that if you're moving back and forth between these frequently, it may make more sense to notate in 12/8. (Pete Seeger's transcription of Paul Winters' Minuit, in 4/4, was correct but almost unreadable due to the density of triplets. Rewriting it in 12/8 tremendously clarified it.)

I have no idea what "cut." would be an abbreviation for but "S.D." most likely means "snare drum". See this very similar question: What does Opt. S.D. mean?

Marking the score 3/4 for 3 measures and then 4/4 for one, seems to fit nicely. Another thing you could try, is to mark the 4th measure as 12/8 (which works with 4 groups of 3 eighths each). Personally, I think I would choose the first option, 4/4.

A bit more information is needed. In the 4/4 bar, are the quarter notes the same length as in the 3/4 bars? In other words, is the quarter note constant (thus yielding 13 total pulses) or is each bar to be the same length (the quarters in the last bar are only 3/4 the duration as in the other bars.) Both of these are legitimate possibilities. If the quarter ...

You can use an iPad running an app called “Scanner by Readdle” (about $10) to store an almost unlimited amount of sheet music. Scanner uses the iPad camera to convert your sheet music (or any document) into a PDF. All you have to do is center each page within the iPad window and it does the rest automatically. Much faster and easier to use and better ...

I can only imagine that the sign is like D$, (del segno) which means go to the place where $ is shown, and play from there. Sometimes it's just DS with the $ at the beginning of where to go next. A pic would help.

They are made to grow with what you put in, it has such bend's it becomes wider. if you put in the conductors score with all the parts it could become quite thick. Then you bend the up and down flap,the side flap and there is strings that hold it closed. Then I ...

This may not be the solution your are looking for, but if you have loose pages like photocopies or PDF print outs, you can get them spiral bound at a shop like FedEx Office. I even had the glue binding cut off cheap Dover editions and replaced with spiral binding. Pages lay open easily with spiral binding, but it may give you some other storage options ...

Try Schubert's various dances for piano. This is the best source I can think of to answer your question. They are easy enough for sight reading - very numerous so you will have a lot to work through - and they are available for free at IMSLP. (But, the Dover edition isn't too expensive.) Another thing to try is sight read from a hymnal. I know this is not ...

I cut the glue binding off the music book, ripping it on a table saw, and punch holes in the pages to fit them in a three-ring binder.
