comment What is this beat and why is it so popular
It makes me think of "Twelfth Street Rag" by Euday Bowman.

comment Can all notes be produced using only the trumpet's valves?
You can remove the mouthpiece and play into it and get all the notes and everything in between, even if it's not a very nice sound, and you are buzzing with the lips. I played the tuba, not the trumpet, and it was a long time ago, but one of the first things I noticed was that I could think of it either as the instrument producing the note and the lips providing a "setting" as to which note, and jumping from one note to the next when tightening them, or the lips producing the note and the instrument amplifying it and cleaning up the tone.

comment How do you actually practice playing an electronic keyboard?
But note: A harpsichord feels VERY different and needs a delicate touch. I don't know of any electronic keyboard that feels like a harpsichord. If you want to learn to play one, you are going to have to find a real harpsichord.

comment Why is the last semiquaver outside the last triplet of the measure?
Clair de Lune = Moonlight = Chiaro di Luna = Luz de la Luna = Mondschein. Would it surprise you to find out that they call it "Mondschein" in Germany and "Clair de Lune" in France?
