comment Teaching unmotivated students
@Matthew Read - the clue's in the title - Music-Practice and Theory. Of course it could be construed that the question could relate to any subject, however, it doesn't. Motivating in music specifically, can be very different from motivating in other subjects

comment What time signature is this?
It's about the only way. Unless it's 3/4 then 4/4 alternating solidly, when it could be re-written 7/4. Or - do as Stravinsky did, and put emphasis marks over what would otherwise be the first beat of a new bar in a new time sig.

comment What time signature is this?
The Beatles seemed quite good at this - Here comes the Sun, All You Need is Love. Roy Orbison often stuck a 2/4 bar in,. After a few listenings, it all seems quite simple to sing. Ever sung The 12 Days if Christmas?

comment Just intonation modulations
What I find hard to figure out is that after a couple of bars in a new key, whether it's a semitone or not quite, away from the previous key, I 'm into the new key, so what real difference does it make?

If so, there would be certain instruments which would be denied the pleasure of performing the pieces.

comment Chord symbols for diminished and half-diminished
@BobBroadley - still waiting for Matthew Read to come back with a reply on 'o' as a double flat. Even if it is, a P interval diminished is only smaller by one flat.

F is relative rather than parallel. Dmaj is parallel of Dmin.
