Terminology and Organization

Songs may have different Arrangements. See SongTemplate

Each Arrangement contains one or more Sections that represent a duration of of the tune (possibly repeated). See ArrangementTemplate

Each Arrangement contains one or more Instruments.

Each Section may involve one or more lines for each instrument. Lines might typically consist of a few phrases.

The word "part" (out of context) is avoided to avoid ambiguity between Section and Instrument.
