comment How to free up a rusty trombone slide?
Is this for real?! Google "rusty trombone" and then add the trumpet snake and lube... this question's suddenly way off-topic!

comment Why classical music compositions are named with key/scale/note names?
@Bavi_H I see - I was discounting the enharmonic equivalents.

comment How can I establish myself as the creator of a given work
Yes, the posting it to yourself is a simple 'insurance' that you can take out should you ever need to 'prove' the date you created it. Normally a signed copy should also go to a prominent member of society such as a lawyer or doctor, who also keeps the envelope sealed with the postmark intact.

comment What are good tips for remaining composed during one's first public performance?
"Remember that the audience is not full of critics and music teachers" - excellent advice. Most people won't be capable of doing what you do - even if you make a few slip-ups and carry on, they'll still come away impressed by your performance. Even the most amateur magician can appear impressive when you don't know how he does his tricks!

comment Why classical music compositions are named with key/scale/note names?
@teodozjan I'm being somewhat sarcastic with the Beiber example - but the point is that if you only write a handful of songs you have the luxury of naming them something of your choosing. Write hundreds of instrumental pieces and you'll soon end up just referring them by their style and key.

@reinierpost I meant the volume of his output is still small enough to spend time giving specific titles rather than functional ones.
