Can somebody tell me if I am correct, I did a search and nothing came up.... I'm puzzled and the teacher is off till January.

The piece I am looking at has repeat marks (the double ones) on the first bar, and at bar 8.

It also has what I think are volta brackets, labelled 1 at bar 7 ending at the end of bar 8.

It also has another volta bracket at bar 9 to the end of bar 10.


My current understanding is this:

I play bars:


Then go back to bar:

skipping bars 7+8 out.

Am I right or am I wrong?

If I'm understanding you correctly, yes, what you have written is how you should play the measures.
