The <for-part> element

Parent element: <attributes>

The <for-part> element is used in a concert score to indicate the transposition for a transposed part created from that score. It is only used in score files that contain a <concert-score> element in the <defaults> element. This allows concert scores with transposed parts to be represented in a single uncompressed MusicXML file.
