If you want small notes and other symbols printed in a normal-size
stave, for example for cue notes, just say \small or \tiny.
If you want a separate stave with line spacing matching the
smaller notes, you also have to set the staff-space property.
Take a look at the example file input/test/
to see how this is done.
