So, I'm self taught in musical notation and identifying music symbols, but haven't ever read a full score. I have one important question that I can't find the answer to.
Where (in sheet music) is there in indication where specific sets if instrumentation start and finish? For example, there is a percussion section and a strings section, the percussion section starts first and the strings come in later. Since I wouldn't imagine there would be 3 full pages of rests in the sheet music for the strings that start late (that would be insanely inefficient and a waste of paper), what would indicate the starting point for this late instrumentation?
Thanks in advance.
