comment What's the difference between sixteenth century counterpoint and eighteenth century counterpoint?
@ReinaAbolofia that said, universities sometimes have separate classes in 16th- and 18th-c counterpoint. (I've taken the former but not the latter.)

comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
Well, it's a method used by modern composers of counterpoint and taught in universities. Do we know that anybody used these methods in the renaissance/baroque periods?

+1 Even if you can't afford to take lessons long-term, a few lessons for diagnostics and some of the basics will serve you well.

comment Quickly flip a page of sheet music while playing
@Benoit plastic sleeves are great for the friction problem, but beware glare from unfortunately-placed lights. Get the sleeves with the matt finish to mitigate this.

I often see them notated in parentheses, which is a big help.

comment Falsetto voice in women
My choir director instructs both women and men to sing in head voice. It's a different concept than falsetto, at least as I've been taught (US).

comment What instruments are inexpensive, portable and not too loud?
True. Is it quiet enough in the upper register? I think he'll be best off with strings because you can pluck/strum quietly without changing your technique, but woodwinds are smaller.
