Because it results in pitches that are properly in-tune.

comment Unknown Notation - Thick Horizontal Bars Between Notes
You could in fact write out each of the individual 16th or 32nd notes, but the tremolo notation is a "shorthand" method that takes up far less space and is easier to read.

comment Recommended tools for live performance for a keyboardist, composer, producer, singer?
The entire 9-point question is too broad, and any individual answer to each of the 9 points would be too specialized. That's how.

comment Recommended tools for live performance for a keyboardist, composer, producer, singer?
Welcome to Musical Practice and Performance. I am afraid that this question is much too broad to be effectively answered here; furthermore, questions about recommendations for equipment are off-topic because they are too specialized to be of general use to our users.

comment Basso profundo question
If you are only 16, it is likely that your voice will deepen with age. This will take place over the next four to six years. I believe there is not much you can do to extend your range at your current age, but as you get older, a voice teacher can help with this.

Not unless the score asks for a portamento, or change in pitch. You can set the pedal at a certain pitch, where it stays, then strike the drumhead while cranking the pedal up or down to create a pitch-bend effect. It isn't used much, but it is an available technique.
