comment Are there any enharmonic chords?
Well, accidentals are usually what define enharmonics... I might actually put enharmonic in quote marks in your question, just to make that a little bit clear... or not even use the word at all; rather just ask "Are there any chords that can have more than 1 valid name?"

comment Is there any specific reason to why are the instruments placed as they are in an orchestra?
+1, though I can't think of any reason why the lower frequencies should be placed stage left... and I have seen variations on OP's picture where double basses are on the opposite side of the stage.

I presume your question is outside the scope of, say Dbdim being enharmonic to C#dim, yes?

comment What is the rhythmic notation for 5/8 the duration of a whole note?
This is correct, but understand that this would only be true for a duration starting at the beginning of a measure of 4/4 time. In other time signatures or positions in the measure, the same duration of 5 eighth notes may be notated differently.

comment Should my air be cold when singing?
To the control of the diaphragm point... I'm sure we agree that we have conscious control over breathing in and out, yes? Is the lung a muscle?

comment Should my air be cold when singing?
@jjmusicnotes I read your answer first and decided it did not sufficiently answer the question. You did not talk about the soft palate, and in particular how the hot air and cold air metaphors apply to the physiology of singing. You also only explained the mechanics of proper diaphragmatic breathing, whereas my aim was to address why this is an issue for vocal technique in the first place.

comment What numbers (on my tuner) to tune my guitar to
My advice would be to use an online guitar tuner to generate the pitches you need to aim for -- then you can match the sound before fine-tuning with your electronic tuner.

comment What are some useful and effective exercises for training absolute pitch?
@Tim - That definition of perfect pitch is not common usage; dictionary definitions suggest that they are literally interchangeable.
