Music is communicated in written form by a system of symbols called notation. As in handwriting, there are various degrees of expertise in executing hand-produced musical scores. The identification of an initial hand-produced musical score is usually less complicated than identifying the work of a notator. Principles and procedures for examining and comparing a musical score are the same as those employed in making a hand-printing identification. Specific aspects of notation are discussed and applied to the identification of a musical score.
