    I have a “rhythm” section in a clarinet book.  My understanding of the rules is that a measure 4 C is assumed, with a TN explaining it.  I was treating the numbers like exercise material and putting them at the margin, followed by a blank line and then the music heading and music line.  Is there a more efficient way to present this section?

    Also, the way that the eighth notes are grouped in 5/8 and 7/8 vary (e.g. in 133 and 134).  Does this qualify as irregular note grouping that I should indicate in braille?

    Hi Anna,

    I think your presentation is very clear. I know it takes up a lot of space, but this is how I generally do things, as well.

    I use the braille music comma to show the grouping of eighth notes in 5/8 and 7/8 meters, unless they remain constant throughout and is specified by the meter – sometimes they’ll show 3+2/8.

    But if it changes, I find it’s helpful to use the comma to show the division.
