Behind Bars: General Conventions is excerpted from the complete edition of Behind Bars and presents the basic principles and conventions of music notation. This handy and accessible softcover book is perfect for students, composers, or anyone interested in understanding the ins-and-outs of music notation. Behind Bars is widely regarded as the indispensable reference book for composers, arrangers, teachers, and students of musical composition, music editors, and music processors. The author’s understanding of and passion for her subject has resulted in a book that is not only practical but also compellingly readable.

Topics include Ground Rules; Chords, Dotted Notes, and Ties; Accidentals and Key Signatures; Grace Notes, Arpeggiated Chords, Trills, Glissandos and Vibrato; Metre, Tuplets (any group of like-rhythmic notes that is barred together, such as a triplet), and Repeat Signs.
