comment What is the word for 'repeating the tonic at the “end” of spelling a scale?'
Can you give an example of it written out on a staff? I think that would help me understand what you are asking for.

comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
@MonicaCellio Yes. See "The Study of Counterpoint" by Joseph Fux, born 1660. In it, he describes all species of counterpoint.

comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
Yes, I'd say that's a good way to put it. The five species of counterpoint are the building blocks composers use to compose counterpoint in general.

comment What's the difference between sixteenth century counterpoint and eighteenth century counterpoint?
In my understanding, counterpoint is counterpoint. It's what you do with it that makes the difference.

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
Are you sure it's a 440 fork? It is not uncommon to find one pitched at 442. And I'm curious what others have to say, but I don't think it's possible to tune a tuning fork.

I have also never heard of a color code for notes. There is however a system called "shape notes". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shape_note
