comment How to use sound library from a yamaha keyboard
MIDI can send on several channels (1-14). Are you sure, that you selected the sound for the same channel, where you received the note information?

All true, but does not explain, why the result has not the garageband-sound either.

comment What is distinctive about the Hammond B3 organ?
This is not specific to the Hammond B3 organ and therefore does little to answer the question.

comment Convincing colleague that playing to a metronome is a good thing?
While I didn't downvote, I would summarize the answer as "devils advocate with some minor exceptions". This is obviously the contrary of what was asked for, since the mentioned colleague already has a negative attitude.

comment Convincing colleague that playing to a metronome is a good thing?
While I'm not a close friend of metronomes either, I consider them more as stabilizers. Learning how to ride a bicycle is much easier using them, and for me it's really hard work to move from a inspired to a correct rhythm, and even more so, after one gets used to the first one.

comment Music theory - transposing
Unfortunately violoncello has a tremendous range of five octaves. Due to my knowledge you have to be pretty good to reach four octaves, on the flute see Wikipedia, Hopefully the piece in question does not require it, but in the worst case you have to use different octave transpositions.

comment What kind of violin is good for a beginner?
Even the most professional violin will not help you to advance, if it is to large for you. Before having arrived at the full size, investments in more expensive instruments are obviously not attractive due to the limited time frame. What proposes your teacher?

comment What is the difference between Taktteile and Taktglieder?
I Just flipped through the subset Amazon offers and I assume, you mean Taktglieder.

comment How do I to calculate note's frequency using no intervals?
I have no idea, how you want to specify the tone for which you want the frequency if not counting to some reference. You could use a MIDI mapping from note number to frequency but even MIDI counts semitones.

comment Difference voices using same unison note
Harpsichords als exist in two-manual versions, where it is actually possible to play the same note more than once.

comment Is there a known point in history where dissonance became acceptable?
I find this question quite difficult, since dissonance has anything but a fixed meaning over the centuries. It was always there, and even with todays criteria pieces of Zelenka (1679-1745) and Schubert (1797-1828) use harmonies and key transitions may cobe considered as adventurous.

comment How to do vibrato on the saxophone?
I just noticed, that you had the same question for flute. Did you change the instrument in the mean time or do you try parallel?

Related question for bassoon (at least also in the reed family).

comment Identifying classical music on different instrument
Unfortunately your question is off topic here; you may want to try the music fans forum instead. I also doubt, that any software service will be of help here, the deviations from the original seem to be quite numerous.

comment Digital pianos and/or midi keyboards with narrower keys
@BobRhodes: As this question shows, this is a de facto standard at best, but there seem to be no significant deviations.

comment “crescendo” vs hair pin
I'm not aware of any difference in meaning. Typically, if one has a (de-)crescendo over many bars, hair pins are easier to stretch than the word. But here, where the same number of bars is concerned it looks arbitrary (if not inconsistent). Given that the first violins have the word and all other strings the hair pins excludes a relation to instrument type. - P.S.: Your graphic looks awful in the low resolution used.

comment Do capable harmony singers sing in just intonation or tempered tuning?
Tuning denotes a static property, which in my opinion does not apply to singing and fret-less string instruments (as long as no open strings are involved). One would typically deviate all the time, e.g. making major thirds a bit larger, leading-tones higher and so on. So I expect in the best case a probabilistic answer of limited value.
