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 What is a 13th chord?
So this about playability? It's not tagged for any specific instruments. It's tagged theory.

Good advice. +1 to get you started.

comment What is a 13th chord?
Does it matter? This a matter of theory, not play-ability. This is applicable to any chordophone or group of instruments playing together.

comment What note(s) are a diminished 3rd above D-flat?
+1 I agree. A lot of those comments were plainly wrong. This is when I wish I could downvote a comment.

comment What are these aspects of song structure called?
Even simple songs can have motifs. It doesn't have to be a Wagner opera to have motifs.

It has to do with poetic meter. Iambic foot, anapestic foot...

comment What are these aspects of song structure called?
@ymar I meant are you asking whether 1) is the motif, which I mentioned, more relevant to more complex musical pieces or 2) is the pattern in question more relevant to more complex musical pieces. I'm trying to figure out what "this" is referring to.

comment Is solfege systems octave-agnostic?
@Saebekassebil It is perfectly fine. In fact, there is a badge for self-answering with three or more upvotes. Thanks for the input.

comment Could a group of musicians play a new piece by sight-reading on first attempt?
It's cheaper also. You don't have to pay musicians as much for time.

It's hard to tell what you're asking here. Are you asking what a repeated section is called?

comment Who was the first composer to notate a trombone smear?
@UlfÅkerstedt Yes, that is what I was asking. Did Fillmore just popularize the smear or did he come up with it in written notation? If he just popularized it, who first put it into sheet music?
