What topics can I ask about here?

Musical Practice and Performance Stack Exchange is for musicians, students, and enthusiasts. If you have a question about...

  • practice & performance technique
  • music theory, notation, history, or composition
  • technical analysis of a specific, complete work, or well defined section thereof
  • instrument maintenance
  • usage of specific music software or hardware

and it is not about...

  • identifying a song, style/genre, instrument/equipment, technique, chord progression, etc.
  • transcription of specific works including identifying notes/chords/meters in your favourite song
  • shopping, product or music search, or buying/selling recommendations
  • recommendations of pieces to listen to, study, or play
  • requesting a list of resources
  • business or legal issues

... then you're in the right place to ask your question!

Please look around to see if your question has been asked before. It’s also OK to ask and answer your own question.

If your question is not specifically on-topic for Music Stack Exchange, it may be on topic for another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
