My son (5th grade) has received this Jingle Bells score. He shall play the treble clef on the piano. The colourful highlighting is mine for the purpose of explanation here. I have played piano ~25 years ago and I'm trying to help him understand the score.
I can't figure out where the repetition (marked green) ends and what exactly shall be repeated. I see that the yellow part and the pink part are identical. IMHO, it would be possible to put that into a repetition, ending at FINE. The repetition would then have an indicator for 1. and 2. like so:
Is it possible that the score is just wrong? Maybe it was simplified for children, i.e. they wanted to get rid of the complex repetition notation but forgot to remove the repetition sign at the beginning? Or is the repetition somewhere else and I don't see it?
When we say "DC al FINE", we don't put those repetition marks, do we?
