#beginquote# Without looking at it, I can't say for sure, but it sounds like a breath mark. Usually those are indicated with a comma above the staff for instrumental music. However, I have seen check marks used for breath marks for vocal music. A simple way to check is to see if taking a breath in that spot makes sense. In music, we have phrases, which are like pharases that we speak or read. You would not take a breath in the middle of a sentence (unless you HAD to because you didn't allow enough air to finish the sentence). Music is the same. If it is a song with words, you can use the words to figure out when to take a breath. For example: Hot cross buns (breathe) Hot cross buns (breathe) one a penny, two a penny (maybe breathe) Hot cross buns. I hope this helps. #endquote#
