comment Key signature for writing in modes other than major and minor
True! (I never played with brass; we had a marching band only, and I played piano. :-) )

Yes, I wondered about that sort of thing too! Eventually I learned. :-) (While I learned to play music from a young age, I didn't actually learn any music theory until college -- at which point I realized how much I'd been missing out on.)

comment High D on Tenor Recorder
Yes, that's the hole I was talking about. I'm not a recorder player myself (I play with some), so I thought they were leaving that hole uncovered for the high notes, but maybe they're pinching it. For debugging you might see what happens if you completely uncover it and then start adjusting the pinching from there. Good luck!

Sorry if this sounds like "is it plugged in?" tech support, but just to check: you are fully covering the hole on the back for the lower octave and are uncovering it for the upper octave, right?

Ah, I see what you're saying now. I somehow misread your parenthetical note on 3 -- my fault, sorry!

This will give you information, but in warmups people (at least the ones I've sung with) routinely produce sound at extremes that they can't really sing. There's a difference between reaching a note stepwise like that (and when in "warmup mode", and not worrying about timing and voicing, and...) and doing it as part of a song. Any note that you can't sing with this exercise is definitely not in your range, but it doesn't follow that all notes you can sing in this exercise really are. :-)
