♦Mod on Genealogy and Family History.SE

I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

comment Why are only even values used for note duration?
@RolandBouman No question is silly :) . Each piece defines a tempo for the entire piece (or a section the piece). For example, in Beethoven's Cello Sonata in A, you can see the tempo marking "Allegro Ma Non Tanto". This means "Fast, but not too much". About 120-130 bpm, approximately. So, at that tempo, there would be 220-240 eigth notes in a minute. However, in a piece marked "Largo", the tempo would be about 45-50 bpm. That tempo is much slower than Allegro Ma Non Tanto, so an eighth note would have a longer duration.

I don't have a copy of van Hauwe handy. Could you summarize a bit about his take on double tonguing?
