"The most common articulations are the staccato, accent, tenuto, and the marcato. They are usually placed directly over or under the notehead, not the stem. If the notehead is on a space, the staccato and tenuto marks are placed in the next space. If the notehead is on a line, the staccato and tenuto marks are placed in the space after the next line."
