comment Is there any real-world difference between time signatures such as 4/4 and 8/8?
In the 1940's, piano Boogie-Woogie was also called "8 To The Bar", because the pulse was eight very rapid beats, not 4 or 2. All of the beats but the first were equal in force.

comment Are “The Carnival of the Animals” and “Danse Macabre” the same piece?
I wouldn't say "copied largely". It quotes the theme of Dance Macabre in a humorous way, and also several other tunes including "Au Clair de la Lune" and "Ah Vous d'Irai-je Maman" (the tune we English-speakers know as "The ABC Song").

comment Should pedals be used when playing classical piano music?
Look at the Moonlight and Waldstein sonatas for example. The first movement of the Moonlight says: Si deve suonare tutto questo pezzo delicatissimamente e senza sordini. (This entire piece must be played most delicately and with no dampers.)

comment My fingers are huge; how do I adjust on a piano?
If it's any consolation, Fats Waller also had big fat fingers. George Shearing said that shaking hands with Fats felt like grabbing a bunch of bananas.
