comment Why are key signatures like E# and B# necessary?
B# and C are not necessarily the same note.

comment Improvising on the piano as a solo instrument: what octave range to cover?
Normally I would say that your hands will be 1-1.5 octaves apart. You avoid clashing with the bass by not playing clashing notes, rather than by trying to avoid low notes (unless you have specific concerns about muddying things).

comment How can I learn to read bass clef score more naturally?
It might work for you to think of it as a mirror image of the treble clef. Middle C being a line above rather than a line below, the "interior" C being the 3rd space from the top rather than the 3rd space from the bottom, etc. Otherwise definitely try flash cards as aparente001 suggests.

@Mr.Boy With practice it will be fast enough not to matter, and with more practice you will know the notes for what they are. Your brain will not forever forget what the note on the third line is called :)

comment What key tin whistle for this tune?
Hi Maria, for analysis questions we require a specific reference. If you could provide the sheet music or at minimum the actual YouTube link that would be helpful.

comment What happens technically when you accentuate on a time-signature?
Beat one is not always emphasized. 4/4 rock often emphasizes beats two and four.
