comment Do people who read RTL languages read LTR standard notation?
This seems like a very complete answer written by someone who knows theirs stuff. The first sentence of the second paragraph should be revised for grammatical correctness and clarity, but I think I understand what you meant. Why would having a national orchestra that reads standard LTR Western notation increase the number of people in the country that can read std LTR Western notation ("chances are a lot more people can also read it")? Or did you mean a lot more people in the nat'l orchestra? Other than those confusing points, I really like this answer because it seems to cover everything.

comment How to escape the C Major trap when improvising on the piano
@Tim Band instruments are different. For instance, French horns typically start off in their key of F (Concert key of Bb). (Concert B natural is a terrible note on our instruments.) [This is just a fun fact for anyone who wanted to know.]

comment Why can some people play music well who don't “know music”?
You said you've been learning for a few weeks? That might explain some things :)

comment Is there a program that can show a score bar by bar in realtime playing?
This is my favorite (free) notation software; it offers the most in my opinion (LilyPond is great but a lot of the time I like to just be able to type in the notes quickly without worrying about code, especially for long and complicated scores.)

comment How to use MIDI keyboard for note input in Cubase?
Didn't work... I also tried using the Monitor button, and that didn't seem to do much either. Do I have to have a MIDI Device set up in the MIDI Devices manager thing?

comment How to use MIDI keyboard for note input in Cubase?
Haha oops forgot to mention that I've got the MIDI-USB cable (even got it connected to where Cubase recognizes it and knows when it's been disconnected). But how do I configure it so my keypresses are registered in some manner?

comment How much being a touch-typist can help learning the piano faster?
Unless your computer keyboard is laid out like a piano keyboard, not much, honestly. But it might help a very small (probably imperceptible) amount when it comes to getting your fingers used to pressing downward (even if only one at a time). In short, the only gains you've made for sure are knowledge of how your fingers work, if you weren't already aware. But I will add one thing to this excellent response: Reading std notation is not necessary to learn how to play piano or any other instrument; I highly recommend it, of course, but it's not necessary.

comment How can I use audio slices as samples?
@DrMayhem That's not what I meant; rather than duplicating each syllable every time I wanted to use it again, I'd use them as...er...samples.
