comment What is a transposing instrument?
For completeness let me add that the recorder family is non-transposing, so players learn new fingerings for each key/clef: C (soprano, tenor) and F (alto, bass) are the most common; G, D, and Bb are useful for advanced playing. Advanced players can read any clef ancient or modern, figure out which instrument fits the range and then how to finger it by pretending to be on a different instrument in a different clef with a different key signature.

comment What are the feelings & emotions behind chords?
The absolute pitch example is true, but only when using equal temperament. If you instead choose a meantone tuning you'll get quite a different sound and feeling as you tranpose a tune.
