Represents a part of a score, either instrumental or vocal, and allows access to some of its properties.

To retrieve the n-th part of a score, the Score.part(n) method of a Score Object can be used.
New parts cannot be created as such; to add a new part to a score, use the Score.appendPart(partName) method instead.
