comment Trying to program a piano staff/stave. Is this what it's supposed to look like?
Agreed, and I wouldn't be very impressed by printed material that didn't use the elliptical shape. Just saying it's not essential for comprehension; certainly not as important as placement.

Can't remember what I was thinking at the time :)

I'm not sure, but whether it's drawn as an ellipse or a circle shouldn't matter - more of a style thing I think. Maybe ellipses are slightly easier to read.

comment With regards to piano sheet music, when are you supposed to press the pedal(s)?
I use #4 quite a lot - especially at the end of a piece, if I want it to fade away gradually, or if my final chord was played a bit too loud for my liking. I find it easy to do if I jiggle my foot up and down very quickly and lightly; this allows me to control the rate of fading. Even works on the electric piano.

+1 ObscureRobot, had never thought of the sympathetic resonation and how it would need to be simulated by an electric piano.

I'd forgotten the name of the horizontal staff lines - ledger lines (thanks Gauthier)

comment What should I look for in a good metronome?
Also, what do you want to use it for? Personally, I only use a metronome for a few beats to determine the intended pace for a piece.

comment With sheet music, how do you determine whether the song is in the major key or the minor key?
You play it and you "just know" :)
