Performance Notes

With homogeneous instrument use, there will be crossed voices, so be sure that students adjust dynamics so the melody is always heard. In an effort to support completely flexible instrumentation, the following editorial accommodations are included to address potential Challenges.

Where appropriate, some parts may have multiple notes. However, they will not be marked div. When this occurs, assign the most appropriate notes for your students.
