• What is this chord progression called?

    Most often this appears on the V chord, though it can also appear on the I or V/V. In C major, it would be a G chord that goes G and B, A and C, A# and C#, and B and D. Almost always C and E would follow. That is this called?

  • Have musical notes changed in pitch over time? For example, could all the tones have gradually shifted upward in pitch do to bad tuning?

    Best answer: Well, a certain frequency will always have the same pitch to our ears, but what changes, which is what I think you're asking, is the conventions about which frequency is actually assigned as the standard. That's changed a lot. According to something I read in these, if Mozart attended a concert today... show more

    According to something I read in these, if Mozart attended a concert today he'd think his Jupiter symphony was being played in D flat.

  • How did organ music become so closely associated with church music, then, later, with gothic horror movies?

    Best answer: Pipe organs (=Church organs) were the first really big, loud instrument that could fill a large space and be clearly heard.

    Best answer: Pipe organs (=Church organs) were the first really big, loud instrument that could fill a large space and be clearly heard.

    When silent movies appeared, an organist played along to add background sound and give character to different parts of movies, depending on the screen action.

    The musicians seem to have worked out what styles of music fitted different types of action or suspense and eventually all used similar styles, so the audiences could match the action and music.


    Over time, both cinema and church organs developed to be more specialised with a wider range of sounds and with cinema, more effects as well as conventional organ tones.

    eg. Theatre/Cinema:

    Church organ:

    Some Churches almost seem to compete from the biggest and showiest organs, eg.

    Best answer: There are singers and instrumentalists that would love you to accompany them! Can you accompany your school chorus? There are churches that will pay you to play a couple of easy hymns each service. You can volunteer and play at senior citizen homes - even if they do not appear to be listening, it is still appreciated. Think about every place in your community that even the simplest things you can play, will make a difference to the people that hear you. See if a theater group could use a pianist for rehearsals or for the pit in their musical show. Any place that has a decent piano will welcome you. And if the do not - and you are making $ at this - you can get s keyboard, stand, music stand, bench, and small amp. You do not have to be playing monster piano literature to bring joy.

  • Do grand pianos sound much different from keyboards?

    Best answer: Hi Caity. If by keyboard you mean one of the inexpensive, small instruments that a lot of young people start with, then yes, the grand piano is significantly different. But there are digital (electronic) pianos that are much better. It's fair to say that a grand piano is a different 'experience' than playing an electronic version. It's the difference between playing real wood and strings versus a computer-generated sound that comes from a speaker. Even the very best digital pianos, no matter how expensive and well made they are, can only sound like a great recording of a real piano, because that's really what they are; a recording of the piano's sound.

    Best answer: Hi Zoe. Yes, the ukulele is very easy to learn and a lot of fun. Its chief use is to play chords while singing rather than single-note lines like a viola. I recommend the concert size ukulele for most beginners. It's a little larger than the soprano size (it's kind of like the viola of the ukulele family) and easier for most people to fit their fingers on. Unlike the piano and the viola, the ukulele actually IS an instrument that you can learn to play well using free videos. With your experience you'll have no trouble at all.

    Rather than reading notes like with the viola, the ukulele generally follows the chord symbols. You've probably seen piano music that has letters and numbers above the music like C, F, D7, Am. Those aren't for the piano but are the symbols used for guitars and ukuleles. As a ukulele player you learn what those symbols mean. Each symbol represents a chord. Each chord is made by placing the fingers in certain spots on the fingerboard of the ukulele. It's easy once you get used to it.

    Believe me, once you get the ukulele in tune you will be playing your first song in five minutes!
