♦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.

Youtube is blocked for a lot of people and videos can get lost. Could you summarize some of the relevant parts of the videos in your answer to keep it useful? Thanks

comment Recorder bell question
A soprano can play higher than the D. A higher pitch can be obtained using other fingerings and covering the bell.

comment Practicing all practical permutations of three-note chords on guitar
Are you confining this to major and minor triads? By definition, any combination of two or more notes is a chord.

No, this is written for a band with brass, wind, and percussion sections. No strings.

comment Why are only even values used for note duration?
Perhaps I did not make it clear enough that each piece has its own temp

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.

comment De-awkwardize middle G trill on recorder
Whoops, your original fingering actually works fine. I was thinking you were saying trilling with the right ring finger (4). Trilling the middle finger (3) works great.

That would produce a trill from G# to A, no?

It' not a serious cut, but deep enough that it's taking a while to heal.
