I'd say one step does correspond to one bar of music, even for
skip-change-of-step, only the starts of the steps' bars and the music's
bars don't coincide -- the step starts a bit earlier. This is why you
absolutely need a pick-up note (anacrusis) at the start of your music,
which is something I had to figure out the hard way, to my
embarrassment, near the beginning of my career as a SCD workshop
musician :^(
