# \new \Score

Another thing that frequenty confuse new users is the \score-statement and the fact that the braces following it do not indicate sequential music, so that you need to nested pairs of curly braces to include a sequentil piece of music in a score block.
```
It also confuses me, btw.```
```
```
I know that the \score-statement is a syntactical construct, but I think it would be nice to hide this fact from the users. I think we could make the use of score-block much more intuitive if changing the syntax to \new \Score and adding an implicit sequential-statement to the score.
```
```
Perhaps we could even expand the idea of having different contexts using different default parsing modes. Having the body of \new ChordNames automatically being parsed in chords-mode would be quite nice, imo.
```
This is probably a quite major change, though. But what do you think?
