Apologies for the very newbie question (I’ve never had any real lessons): On a piano grand staff, how do you (as the composer) properly annotate that one hand should play differently than the other?
For instance, in one piece, both hands are playing at mp loudness, yet at a certain bar I want the left hand to start playing leggiero (but not the right hand). So far I have this marked as “l.h. leggiero” on the lower staff, but I’m guessing that’s not how it’s actually done (and it doesn’t seem to alter playback in Sibelius 8).
Seems like this would be simple to find an answer to online, yet I’ve spent an hour Googling and rifling through piano scores without finding a clear answer. Any help would be very appreciated.
