I play the violin and have a similar problem. I personally like this music game for android. It asks you to play notes on your instrument and gives you feedback to tell you when you are doing it correctly. I would highly recommend it to anyone trying to learn to read sheet music or trying to improve there reading abilities. The game isn't perfect I have ...

I've seen cases where this means "sing(play) the smaller note the second time around" in the context of a vocal melody; this was in a case where the words changed from one verse to the other, necessitating a change in the notes and durations for the different verses.

Likely an optional note, to be sung instead of the large note if the singer has what it takes to sing the small note.

If one wants to use staff association as a strong hand indication while retaining rhythmically helpful grouping, one can use notation like the following:

These chords are known as slash chords or hybrid chords. For example: C/B, where C is the chord and B is the bass note. From Jazzology: With a diagonal line, the symbol above refers to a chords while the one below to a bass note only. Note that when there is a horizontal line, it refers to a different thing (polychord). A slash chord might sound ...

There is a general distinction between "closed" and "open" voicings of chords -- what you gave as an example looks like a closed voicing (where the notes of the chord are as close as they can be). When creating an open chord voicing using many notes spread over a number of octaves, it is often good to follow the spacing of the overtone series: use octaves ...

Another use (not applicable to your example), very frequently encountered in orchestral or ensemble scores is as rehearsal mark. It may be letters or numbers either in a circle or square. They can be recognized as such, since they appear in strict sequence (A, B, C...). Sometimes "I" is omitted not to be mixed up with "J". Their purpose is, to have reference ...

It's the form of the piece. As you can see both sections with the A above them have very similar rhythmic patterns and the sections that have A' have different rhythmic patterns then that of A. So the piece has a form of AA'AA'.

possible voicings of a 3 note chord include those 3 halfsteps in ANY and ALL of the 7.3 octaves. your example is ok for when the 1,3,5 are only used once. But maybe you want 3 separate bass notes in 3 of the lower octaves, plus a 3rd in octave 4, and 2 5ths in octaves 5 and 6. You could have that 3 note chord playing on 21-ish possible notes or any ...

There's the standard root-3rd-5th making a root position, then 1st inversion with 3rd-5th-root up an octave, and 2nd inversion, with 5th at the bottom-root (up an octave from original)-3rd(up as well).Go up another step and it's back to root. As there are so many combinations of the three notes available on several instruments, I don't believe there is a ...

To me it sounds like quartal harmony and is non-functional in a traditional tonal way, it also has no strong tonal implications. Probably I would name it F7sus4/G although the chord symbol system is not ideal for such harmony. Bearing in mind that sometimes jazz composers write out the scales/modes rather than chords you could just say Eb pentatonic scale/G ...

It's an Eb6/9 chord with a G in the bass. A major 6/9 chord is a chord that has the basis of a major triad and has a major 6th and a major 9th(major 2nd) in it without a 7th. The spelling is Eb G Bb C F. The full chord symbol would be Eb6/9/G. Also as a side note, it would be difficult for this chord to function as a dominant as the leading tone of C ...

The standard notation I've seen is just to keep writing degree signs before the numerical interval for multiply diminished and plus signs for augmented. Your abbreviated version doesn't conflict with anything I've seen, bit I wouldn't immediately recognize it either. Just +++++5 for quintuply-augmented fifth. I think the use of d and A can be a little ...
