Available at
metaMarkA graphical or textual statement with additional / explanatory information about the musical text. The textual consequences of this intervention are encoded independently via other means; that is, with elements such as <add>, <del>, etc.
annot(annotation) – Provides a statement explaining the text or indicating the basis for an assertion.
beamSpan(beam span) – Alternative element for explicitly encoding beams, particularly those which extend across bar lines.
bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.
caesuraBreak, pause, or interruption in the normal tempo of a composition. Typically indicated by "railroad tracks", i.e., two diagonal slashes.
chordA simultaneous sounding of two or more notes in the same layer *with the same duration*.
cpMark(copy/colla parte mark) – A verbal or graphical indication to copy musical material written elsewhere.
dir(directive) – An instruction expressed as a combination of text and symbols — such as segno and coda symbols, fermatas over a bar line, etc., typically above, below, or between staves, but not on the staff — that is not encoded elsewhere in more specific elements, like tempo or dynam.
dynam(dynamic) – Indication of the volume of a note, phrase, or section of music.
f(figure) – Single element of a figured bass indication.
fermataAn indication placed over a note or rest to indicate that it should be held longer than its written value. May also occur over a bar line to indicate the end of a phrase or section. Sometimes called a 'hold' or 'pause'.
fingfinger – An individual finger in a fingering indication.
fingGrp(finger group)– A group of individual fingers in a fingering indication.
gliss(glissando) – A continuous or sliding movement from one pitch to another, usually indicated by a straight or wavy line.
hairpinIndicates continuous dynamics expressed on the score as wedge-shaped graphics, e.g. < and >.
halfmRpt(half-measure repeat) – A half-measure repeat in any meter.
harm(harmony) – An indication of harmony, e.g., chord names, tablature grids, harmonic analysis, figured bass.
harpPedal(harp pedal) – Harp pedal diagram.
lineA visual line that cannot be represented by a more specific; i.e., semantic, element.
mRest(measure rest) – Complete measure rest in any meter.
mSpace(measure space) – A measure containing only empty space in any meter.
multiRest(multiple rest) – Multiple measures of rest compressed into a single symbol, frequently found in performer parts.
ncSign representing a single pitched event, although the exact pitch may not be known.
noteA single pitched event.
octaveAn indication that a passage should be performed one or more octaves above or below its written pitch.
ornamAn element indicating an ornament that is not a mordent, turn, or trill.
phraseIndication of 1) a "unified melodic idea" or 2) performance technique.
restA non-sounding event found in the source being transcribed.
slurIndication of 1) a "unified melodic idea" or 2) performance technique.
spaceA placeholder used to fill an incomplete measure, layer, etc. most often so that the combined duration of the events equals the number of beats in the measure.
trillRapid alternation of a note with another (usually at the interval of a second above).
tupletA group of notes with "irregular" (sometimes called "irrational") rhythmic values, for example, three notes in the time normally occupied by two or nine in the time of five.
tupletSpan(tuplet span) – Alternative element for encoding tuplets, especially useful for tuplets that extend across bar lines.
Common Music Notation (CMN) repertoire component declarations.
beamSpan(beam span) – Alternative element for explicitly encoding beams, particularly those which extend across bar lines.
bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.
