Exactly! Thanks for pointing out the typo -- and another one. My fingers wanted to count by twos!

comment How should tuba valve springs of different size be reassembled?
Are they just uncompressed to different lengths? Or does it appear that they were manufactured in different sizes? It could be that the valves you use most often have compressed those springs according to wear. I've never seen this, but my other guess would be that the springs would be ordered shortest to longest for valves 2-1-3 -- allowing for more spring tension to be used on valves that have a longer amount of tubing. I've had problems with valve instruments where valves would stick only when there was airflow, and I believe a stronger spring matched with the longer airways would help.

comment Circle of fourths in Jazz
@NeilMeyer There are countless chord progressions used in "standards"; the 4ths progressions are just a primary element. It's not to say that every chord change is a 4th away from a previous one. You can look in any Real Book for hundreds of examples.

comment Accompanying notes to higher key
Why not transpose the whole song down until it's within the singer's range?

comment How does one read very loud or very soft dynamic markings (e.g. ffff, ppp)?
Steven Bryant's great. I played in the second (or third) performance of his Concerto for Wind Ensemble!

comment What key could the progression Cm - G - Dm - Am be in?
@Mr.Boy Go ahead and link to the recording! Honestly I don't think this is truly answerable until we hear the melody -- context accounts for quite a bit.

comment BPM marking doesn't check out or am I just reading it wrong?
I dropped into OP's video at about 16:30 and she's talking about the passing tones that Schiff does here, as being written as triplets in a second version that Bach produced of the piece. But then she goes to say that the performance practice of those triplets would be shifted to fit a duple rhythm -- exactly the opposite of what Schiff does.
