comment Four dotted sixteenths in a triplet
Nepomuceno does the same thing in measure 41 and basically the same thing again in measure 20. There is a dotted eighth and two dotted sixteenths all in one triplet which can be simplified to an eighth and two sixteenths.

comment How useful are learning aids in teaching oneself piano?
The composers are, respectively, Pachelbel, Mozart, Mozart, Mozart, and Rossini. By the way, Canon in D and K 216 are written for string instruments, Symphony 25 and K216 are written for orchestras and the Barber of Seville is written for an opera. Of the five, only Rondo alla Turca was originally written for the piano.

Can you sight read in the C clef? One can mentally transpose notes from the F-Clef by raising them two steps and you've got G-clef music two octaves higher also.

What about the C Clef? Going from piano to viola, you would have to learn a new clef.
