I'm a French Canadian software developer who likes coding compilers, games, graphics and low-level stuff - especially when there's C# or C++ involved. I've worked in the games industry (EA, Behaviour Interactive) and at Microsoft. Find me on LinkedIn.

comment How to learn piano without owning a piano?
Also note that it's hard to anticipate one's reaction to the nervosity of performing in public. If you do learn a piece, I suggest you perform it in front of some friends first to see how you handle it.

comment Is there a general term for a single note or a chord?
@Karen I was sort of hoping for a surprisingly obscure term from the literature :)

I also thought about stem, though the stem is supposed to be the line, and would you call a whole note a stem? I'd be satisfied with a term that would merge those two rectangles too. "note set" or "note group" can work, I guess.

@Tim That's exactly my question. It feels sensible, but Sibelius does otherwise. What's the standard approach, if any?

"Note column" is an interesting term. I have been looking at a few open source notation software and didn't come across it. "Musical moment" seems more about a position in time than a set of notes though.

It sort of works in this example but it's a little unsatisfying. If there were two staves, you'd count a single beat for two chords that happen at the same time - on the same beat.

@RolandBouman No, I don't have an actual example, but I was wondering if there is a rule for it anyways. "There is no standard notation for this" is a valid answer.

@Tim In the second illustration, if one of the Bs is natural and the other is flat, putting a single flat in front of the whole thing is ambiguous.

@Dom Don't worry about the specific example. I'm toying with the idea of developing a notation program and am curious about the proper way of notating this.
