So I am working on this piece and well I came across this problem. I am writing for the lower instruments, and I have this problem all the time when it comes to clarinets. I am like 4-5 ledger lines down below the staff and I want to put a dynamic change there, but I dont want the dynamic marking too far down on the page and well I dont know where to put it and it would look right. I have the same problem when it comes to writing really high above the staff like when writing for flute. I feel like all the dynamic markings should be at the same level, not ones higher than others.
