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 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 Is there a website with easy sheet music for popular songs?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about requesting a list of resources

That was an auto-generated comment. Questions about the meanings of lyrics are off-topic here. If you have specific questions about music theory or other on-topic topics here, feel free to ask.

comment Sheet music apps for iPad/tablet?
Maybe I should have worded that differently. I just thought that question might help you (you can't really close as a dupe of a Q on another site). However, shopping recommendation type questions are explicitly off-topic here.

Exact dupe of apple.stackexchange.com/q/76766/36309 (which was migrated from here) :P

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 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%.
