- Why can't we play what people speak? 5 answers
Why is it that when you hum a song, you can play it on the piano or keyboard, but when make a sentence in English, it is impossible to play or transcribe it into notes?
For example: I can play "lift up the trumpet and loud let ring" because it is a song I know, but I can't play a discussion, conversation, and even a ordinary sentence on the keyboard.
I need somebody to explain the difference between conversation and vocal musica and why a conversation or English sentence can not be made into notes unless it becomes a song.
