• Would you prefer the piano or the violin? What’s your reason for it?

    I’m planning on choosing one of these instruments as my major for the music school that I’ll attend but I’m still unsure of which instrument should I pick as I really love both of them.

  • What band instrument (not orchestral) sounds like a piano?

    Best answer: Nothing sounds like a piano but a piano. You can orchestrate out the piano part and cover the notes and get close to the feel but no one will go hey that band sounded just like a piano. If the piano part is chords you can divide it out into woodwinds and if it is running notes you could transcribe it on xylophones... show more

If the piano part is chords you can divide it out into woodwinds and if it is running notes you could transcribe it on xylophones and marimbas and if it is a powerful melody in octaves then you could transcribe if for brass. figuring out what the function of the piano part and transcribing on other instruments is the art of arranging.

  • Why do people like "Country Music"? what think of it and why?

    Best answer: Country music tends to be very melodic, simple in structure so easy to pick up, uncomplicated in ideas so easy to follow and tends to tell a story to hold the listener's interest. It often has a tempo that lends itself to communal dancing and simple melodies that are easy to sing along with. There are various... show more
    Best answer: Country music tends to be very melodic, simple in structure so easy to pick up, uncomplicated in ideas so easy to follow and tends to tell a story to hold the listener's interest. It often has a tempo that lends itself to communal dancing and simple melodies that are easy to sing along with. There are various styles within country music, some simpler and more traditional than others. It is a very unpretentious style of music.
    All of that makes it very different from classical music or opera. Some people may like those too. Music is non-exclusive - we can like more than one type.
    We all have different tastes in music. I am not a great lover of story songs or of over simplistic melodies but there is plenty of good country music and expert country musicianship out there.
    At one time, I would have rejected country music because it was not 'cool'. Now I recognise that grown ups don't care about being cool or impressing others. We are all entitled to like what we like.

  • How much should I charge for playing the piano as background music for a dinner party?

    Best answer: Maybe half of what the cheapest pro could get, per local rates, if you're pretty good.
    Whose piano - yours or theirs? One set, or hours-long? My WAG would be $50-200.
    And don't forget to check on dress requirements...
    Good luck, and have some fun, too.

  • Guitar pick fell in between piano key strings?

    Nothing much to explain here, while the top of my upright piano was open, a guitar pick dropped in the piano strings of the middle C key. Now the key sounds like a weirdly out of tune chord but I know the key is in tune. What do I do?

  • Difference between G minor and B-flat minor in semitones?

    Best answer: If the song is in too high a key, just enter successively larger numbers and select "transpose down".  If there's just a "transpose" function (no up or down), enter a negative number; that is, a number preceded by a dash, e.g., –5. It's possible that you'll need to transpose the... show more
    Best answer: If the song is in too high a key, just enter successively larger numbers and select "transpose down".  If there's just a "transpose" function (no up or down), enter a negative number; that is, a number preceded by a dash, e.g., –5.

    It's possible that you'll need to transpose the music so low that the accompaniment no longer sounds good.  Because transposing up or down by 12 semitones doesn't change the key, just add 12 to the negative transpose number.  For example, if transpose is set at –8, reset it to –8 + 12, which equals 4.

    Anonymous has made some comments that are just plain wrong.  Semitones are not "between notes" or out-of-tune at all.  On piano, for example, if a white key follows a black key (or vice versa), then those keys and the notes they sound are one semitone apart.  In two instances, from E to F and B to C, they are both white keys with no black key between them†.  Those pairs of notes are also one semitone apart.  A semitone is simply the pitch change from one note to the adjacent note.

    ( † For this reason E-sharp and F sound the same note, as do E and F-flat, B-sharp and C, and B and C-flat. )

    The remark "G# I have seen rarely used" is puzzling.  This note appears in the keys of A and E, which are extremely common in guitar-based music.  For music written in the often-used key of G, saxophones all have a G-sharp in their key signatures, as they are "transposing" instruments.

    [ EDIT:  By the way, there is "an H note", at least in some regions of Europe, that is equivalent to a B-natural.  Their B is is our B-flat. ]

  • Mozart vs Beethoven vs Bach. Who is the best in your opinion? Use < or > and explain who is the best musicion in existence.?

    Best answer: Why do people always leave Handel out of these comparisons? Beethoven said he was the best composer who ever lived, and we'd expect him to say Beethoven was.

    Mozart said, "Bach is the father of us all," meaning C.P.E. Bach.
