comment Do weighted keys on a keyboard lead to more expressive playing?
The acoustic piano will have limitations too. It takes a great deal of effort to regulate the action and voicing so that E responds exactly as F does, and it doesn't take long to get out of regulation. I doubt that you can play E and F and get them within 1% of each other on a typical acoustic piano.

comment Are there names for referring to the top or bottom numbers in a time signature?
In musical notation, a metronome marking is always specified as "M.M." (for "Maelzel's Metronome") followed by a picture of a note, an equals sign and a number. The note may or may not be a quarter note. 6/8 time is usually 2 beats per measure, not 6. Dance music is almost always either 4/4 (quarter note beat), 3/4 (quarter note beat), 2/4 (quarter note beat) or 6/8 (dotted quarter note beat).

comment Percussion notes in the vocals
Sometimes you'll see the notes at different positions in the staff, indicating approximate pitches or the general inflection of the speaking voice. All of the spoken lines in Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess" are notated this way.

comment Can a scale contain both a sharp and a flat note?
A general rule: a scale has the letters in order, with none repeated. If you use G - A - Bb - C - D - Eb - Gb - G you have to keep putting a flat or natural in front of the G. Also, you can't have a key signature with both G natural and G flat in it.
