What is the procedure for a long word-sign or a sectional heading in solo instrument or voice format? Can it be moved before the parallel, and if so where does it go in relation to a rehearsal marking? I can find examples in the codebook of moving long word-signs in ensemble format but not in solo formats.
It goes directly in the music line, not above. If it’s very lengthy you can use a music asterisk and put it in a footnote at the bottom of the Braille page. But because single-line format doesn’t use parallels, you can’t move the expression above it! A sectional heading can be a centered music heading if it consists of a tempo/character change but otherwise just in line.
Hope that helps!
