I play piano, Spanish guitar, and some bayan. Would like to learn flute and a string instrument in due time.

What do the 3/4 and 4/4 numbers mean?
"One two three four" (backbeat) is a very American thing. It's the spine of jazz (and rock), but not of classical music. "In music that progresses regularly in 4/4 time, the first down-beat is usually the strongest accent in the melody and the likeliest place for a chord change, the third is the next strongest: these are 'on' beats." That's why it's so hard to teach, say, a German to clap on two, four, six, eight. Their musical tradition is very different.
