comment What are some rythmically complex songs (with a large amount of time signatures)?
i don't think there's a definitive answer for this question. But Rush is known for changing time signatures aaaaall the time.

comment Note length line (beam) placement in numbered musical notation
Why would you use that notation? Nobody will know it and it's not even something you can do with straight text. What does it offer that beats standard notation?

And you're sensitive to people telling you... So that kinda sounds like you're under stress... The wedding is =IN= the question. I may not know everything. But I know -my- wedding was stressful. OP can, of course, do what he pleases.

@ChrisCirefice now, you have been married right? Your's wasn't very stressful? My opinion is sure - learn the piano, sure, great. But kick back on your wedding day.

comment How to learn piano without owning a piano?
Oh you've got a year - that should be manageable if it's a simple enough song. The church must have a piano, but they may charge to practice on it... Good luck to ya. I sure wouldn't bite into something like that for my wedding day:)

comment Is there a general term for a single note or a chord?
an event is a notedown, noteup, or control change (like tempo, master volume, pitchbend, pedal, etc, etc) So a 3 note chord has 6 events. I kinda don't think event would work.

comment Is there a general term for a single note or a chord?
Yep. For me (working on a piano practice midi sequencer), a note set is all the notes that start at the same time (within a given track). It's useful for syncing time to where you're currently playing if you don't want to force the player to march to a metronome (if you want them to be able to use rubato, etc). Standard notation kind of forces the durations to be the same across a stem. If you have 2 notes with different durations that start at the same time, you HAVE to split it into 2 stems that happen at the same time.
