That's an A minor natural scale.

comment Where can I find Drum Scores / Sheet Music?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about requesting a list of resources.

comment How do I practice (vocal) pitch without an instructor?
Are you trying to attain absolute pitch or relative pitch? In other words, are you trying to be able to sing a C# (for example) at will, or sing exactly a major sixth (for example) up from any given note?

Are you talking about a Glissando?

comment What are the patterns of the minor scales
The help center says nothing about basic or Googleable questions being off-topic. This question seems perfectly fine, IMO.

comment Rondo alla turca - bar 55
Breitkopf and every other edition I can find has F#. The A is either a mistake or the editor took a few liberties with the piece.

comment Theory of Major and Minor Chord Sounds
The fifth is still in the same place relative to the root, regardless of the third.

comment Ambidextrous instruments
Not all, but if you look at the barrel of a recorder, the holes are not in a straight line. They are aligned on two curves, one for each hand (see the alto in this image). The curves are larger for the larger recorders. The alto, which never has keys is difficult to play with the hands switched unless you have unusually large hands, which few people do.

comment Ambidextrous instruments
Only higher pitched recorders (soprano and up, possibly alto) can be played with the right hand on top. Try playing a tenor or a bass with your right on top. Impossible

comment Comfortable notes in a key
I know that. The OP seemed more interested in modern music and not a lot of songs these days use that cadence. It's mostly hymns and musicals.

comment Figuring out the difference between major and relative minor scales?
What pieces did you look at? For example, take a look at the second or fourth movements of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. Although the fourth is an anacrusis, the next measure stars with a D while the signature is G. Look at King Cotton. This is also fairly common in hymns. By common, I mean about 10-25%.

@Tim I would have included that in the answer, but I don't think that's the type of cadence the OP is looking for.

comment Figuring out the difference between major and relative minor scales?
"Songs in a key will use the same chords whether they are in maj. or relative min." No, if a song is in C, for example, the relative minor (Am) will not involve the same chords. With the same chords, the tonic is still on C, not A.

comment Figuring out the difference between major and relative minor scales?
Pieces often start on the dominant, not always the tonic. They end on the tonic 99.99% of the time.

Don't worry, the limit's 30 000 characters, almost six times the length of the answer. :P
