Request for additional glyphs/Tap percussion

I would like to propose a group of symbols used in tap dance notation.

Tap dancers perform percussion, on par with the vocals and instruments; and can be integral members of a band.



Kahnotation consists of 65 symbols.  This tap notation was developed by Stanley Kahn in the 1930's and published in 1951.

Bio & example:

After the death of Mr. Kahn, his former student Sam Weber now is standard bearer of the notation.

I have the symbols scanned and can provide them, along with descriptions.

Getting dancers on the same page with musicians will improve timing, education and overall musical performance.
