How do I tell which stave a dynamic marking belongs to?
In this score: https://musescore.com/anes/nocturne-n2---a-snowy-night
In bar 1 there is a "p" marking for both staves. In bar 7 there is a "p" marking close to the bass stave. Does this belong to the treble or bass stave. Maybe the bass because there's a clef change here? But this would seem to be inconsistent with bar 1, so maybe the treble stave.
On the other hand, why is there a dynamic marking here at all since there is no change in dynamics for either stave. (They are not part of any repeat.)
