 RE: Grace, Trill, and Turn Accidentals

Thanks, Jim.

So far, and I know it isn't much, the material I've seen has been for beginners and intermediate players, often with little helpful hints in it, such as lesser known alternate fingerings in challenging runs, and (for lack of a better way of putting it) "remarked" accidentals to help the student play the correct note in the measure. I can specifically remember a turn that required a B natural (marked as such with the natural mark above the turn symbol) and then the publisher/editor made it a point to show the next B note in the original key that required a Bb with a good sized flat symbol next to it and an asterisk with a special instructional footnote at the bottom of the page to tell the student about the change. A bit obvious, but necessary for beginners like me.

I seriously doubt that regular works are written in such an obvious way to help guide the player.

So, let's see if I can get the "rules" right here.

Accidental on a grace note: take the accidental through the measure unless marked or written otherwise

Accidental on a trill or turn: take the accidental for the embellishment and return to the key signature unless it's marked or written otherwise

Let me know if I got it right or not.
