comment Is there a color code for notes?
This link shows some studies done on it this, but no real information about what it actually is. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colored_music_notation If there's anything, it's not standard.

comment Where can I find a new water key (spit valve) for an Olds Ambassador trombone?
This will probably work. However, considering F E Olds has been out of business thirty-something years, the cost of the key may be more expensive than some other company which is still producing parts.

comment Scale from Hungarian Rhapsody No.2
I was thinking this might be it, but when luser droog posted his answer, I thought G Melodic Minor more the likely of the two.

comment Is it possible to play a piano piece written for four hands with just two hands?
This doesn't directly answer the question. Tatum denied he did it himself, as you said. This doesn't prove anything beyond the fact that Tatum couldn't do it. The two questions are "Were any classical musicians capable of playing a four hands piano piece with just two hands?" and "is it possible to play a four hands piano piece with just two hands?". As far as I can see, this doesn't answer either question.

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.

It seems though that with practice and proper technique, you could expand your range somewhat.

comment What is the best software, to cut a loop out of a song, for rehearsal purposes?
If you know the BPM of the piece, it should be moderately easy. Otherwise, you'll have to go by ear.

For the section on tenors in a church choir, did you mean F4 and G4 instead of F3 and G3, respectively?
