Quick Music Notation Tips: Score System Divider

Score System Divider 3

When a score has multiple systems on a page, the conductor’s eye can easily skip a system, impeding sight-reading, rehearsal productivity, and confusing performers. One option for clearly delineating systems in a score is to place score system divider markings between them. These cesura markings make it very clear to the conductor that a new system is beginning in the score.

In Finale, adding this marking between systems is simple. From the Plug-ins menu, choose Scoring and Arranging > Score System Divider. This plug-in automatically places markings between systems on the pages you choose.
