comment Αre these three dots over a note supposed to be staccato?
Ah is that what it is? The 3 simply indicates subdivision (like the slash), not triplets? (I guess I know a lot less than I thought I did.)

@alephzero Ah thank you! I will edit my answer. I should have fact-checked rather than relying solely on how this stuff was explained to me.

comment Writing a Mozart-style cadenza
@jjmusicnotes Just saw your comment today and I'd like to explain that I'm entirely self-taught in the field of composition. (I play French horn in my high school's band [hence the Solo&Ensemble contest I was playing the horn concerto for]) There's a lot of music theory terminology I dont know,& because I lack formal training,I'm equipped solely with my ears & knowledge of chord construction(not chord sequences).Did tons (read:hours) of Googling but couldnt find anything explaining which chord patterns, etc are Mozart-y. I'm not lazy,just without cash for textbooks that'd spell that stuff out.

comment short segment of different time signature
I'd like to add that in advanced-level concert band music, it is fairly common, usually for effect (though it is often seamlessly worked into the melody and does not sound "irregular" to the average listener. It is very, very common in marching band show music.

comment Is there a way to notate alternative transitions between 2 sections of music?
I'm not sure how that would work in my particular case. I've added images of the transitions in std notation to the question; would you mind further enlightening me?

comment Is there a way to notate alternative transitions between 2 sections of music?
But the first time through, the transition between the verse and chorus sections is 2 measures long. The second time through, the transition between the verse and chorus sections is 1 measure long. If I use 1st and 2nd endings alone, one of the transition versions must be omitted/is not represented, since if I just write them side-by-side, both will get played both times through, which is not what I want. Is there a less long-winded way to specify alternate transitions (without having to write out the verse and chorus twice)?

"Sheet music" sounds less awkward than "music sheet", at least in my dialect of American English

comment Do people who read RTL languages read LTR standard notation?
This seems like a very complete answer written by someone who knows theirs stuff. The first sentence of the second paragraph should be revised for grammatical correctness and clarity, but I think I understand what you meant. Why would having a national orchestra that reads standard LTR Western notation increase the number of people in the country that can read std LTR Western notation ("chances are a lot more people can also read it")? Or did you mean a lot more people in the nat'l orchestra? Other than those confusing points, I really like this answer because it seems to cover everything.
