What is the difference between a mordent (the symbol that looks like a wave) and a turn (the symbol that looks like a sideward S) above a note? I think with a mordent you only go down a semi tone(or up) once and then back to the original note, where as in a turn you go up a semi-tone, then back to the original note, then down a semi-tone, then back up to the original note. Is this right? I hope I haven't confused anyone.
