can someone tell me what these markings indicate i mean the markings at the begging and end seem like s letter with slash and double dots on it and the word "FIN".

do i have to play the whole piece from beggining to end and return to the beginning again from the sign at the end ?

yes that's I think what the composer wants.

FIN means the end

I suppose the composer wants you to repeat a part.

So when you reach the end of page 1 where that mark is, you go back to the start of the page where the other copy of that mark is, and then play on till FIN.

Its more usual to use words like "Da Capo" and "del segno" or "del desno al fin" or something like that in these cases.

> begging, beggining
LOL check your spelling, begging is something else

The sign at the end of the page is incorrect. What should be there is the instruction dal segno al fine or DS for short, go to the sign and play to the fine.

I wonder if this is from someone who's been using one of those music notation programs for the computer. It looks like the instructions overlaid on the sheet (the S sign and the FIN) aren't quite complete. These instructions are customarily in Italian, and FIN would normally be 'FINE', meaning 'end'. The S sign is a kind of bookmark, so when you see it, you know that a little further on down the line, you're going to be asked to go back and play from the S mark again. Here, I'd have expected to see 'Dal Segno al Fine' (or shortened to DS al Fine) at the end of the page. So, you start at the beginning (always a good place to start), play right through to the close, and there you get the next instruction, 'DS al Fine', meaning now go back to the S bookmark, and continue till you get to 'Fine', and then stop.

If this is a single page of sheet music, I wouldn't expect to see the S mark at the start, I'd only expect to see that used further into the music. If you've to go back to the beginning, that's normally written like 'Da Capo al Fine' (or 'DC al Fine'), meaning 'go back to the beginning, and play on until the 'Fine' mark.

In older music you can find da capo al fine or al fin. I don't know why but in my old Italian books I found both. The notation on the op screen doesn't look right to me. There is no double point for the repetition and the double "s" doesn't make any sense to me.

i did little bit research and i found Fine is FIN in french and D.S or Dal Segno can be shown as also S mark with slash through it so i think the book i study like to use abbrevations but you are true it's confusing at first

so i have to play this piece from beginning until the second segno and return back to first segno sign and again play it until FIN and end it
