    Obviously one of the most complete examples in five measures of how much can be packed into sheet music.

    A vocal line, an accompaniment on the grand staff.

    An anacrusis measure

    A 'difficult' key signature and a modulation

    Accidentals

    Phrase marks

    Dynamic markings

    Crecendo and decrescnedo hairpins

    Expression text

    slurs

    Ties

    Ornaments

    Tremolos

    Acciaccatura

    Fermata

    Accents

    Multiple voices one one staff

    Legato Marks

    Tuples

    Arpeggiated (rolled) chords

    Stacatto

    ... Puccini seems to have missed out on C clefs, cross-staff beaming, mordents, trills, turns, glissandi and a few other novelties in this one though.

    (Anyone have the TAB for this?) :-)

    All the notes that are in a line vertically are played at the same time.

    This is way to difficult for someone who's never read sheet music before to start with. Look up how to read sheet music before wasting your time trying.
