    So, I have been playing the piano for many years, but I can't say I'm that much good at it, just recently resuming after two years. But now, I feel inspired to play the cello, I have a concept of rhythm and music and can read notes clearly and such, but the cello and piano are such different instruments in which how you play it. Is it really worth to attempt, or will it be difficult for me to advance? I'm 14 years old, not an age where I have completely lost hope to gain music sense because of previous knowledge, but not at a recommended age to start a new instrument like that of a cello, as young kids like kindergartners would be. And of course, any person can learn any instrument at any age, but I'm curious to see if I can make decent progress, and be able to pick it up a bit quicker.

  • How many music scales are there? The major scales sharps and flats makes 14. I heard there are 36? What are they?My music theory is limited?

    Best answer: Okay- hold it. There are major scales, then there are the three types of minor scales. Then there are MODAL scales, in every key. These are based on moving the tonic around in the scale, and basing a new scale off of that. The same notes in the relative key, but with a different starting point and thus a different... show more
    Best answer: Okay- hold it. There are major scales, then there are the three types of minor scales.

    Then there are MODAL scales, in every key. These are based on moving the tonic around in the scale, and basing a new scale off of that. The same notes in the relative key, but with a different starting point and thus a different order. Western music has an ancient basis in modal scales, from which modern major and minor scales are derived. Look into Gregorian chant to see good examples of this- or you could listen to some traditional Irish music to hear some good dorian or mixolydian modal music.

    Then there are pentatonic scales- five-note scales, which you can find by just playing the black keys on the piano, or picking and choosing five tones within an octave according to particular rules. And there are other scales, too. Debussy developed a scale of only whole steps, resulting in a 7 note scale rather than the pattern of half and whole steps that makes the typical 8 note scale.

    And don't even start on the NON-western pitch system- that can get complicated really quickly.

    Oh, and there's twelve-tone music as well, which uses all twelve tones in a Western-type octave equally and adheres to no particular key/scale.

    Is it really possible to count all the ways you can arrange notes into a scale? Frankly, I'm not sure. Music is a language- to a creative composer, the possibilities are endless.

  • Why were there no great women classical music composers throughout history?

    Best answer: For the most part, women weren't allowed to compose and no one would publish anything they wrote. There are some exceptions, like Hildegard von Bingen and Fanny Mendelssohn, who published works under her brother's name.

    The 20th century saw plenty of female composers.

  • Any recommended online free piano lessons?

    Best answer: The lessons at zebrakeys.com aren't too bad. Not as good as a real teacher, of course.

    Whatever you do, don't rely on Youtube tutorials for specific pieces. Those are a recipe for disaster.

    How can you possibly live in an area with no piano teacher? Even the smallest towns usually have at least one.

    Best answer: Some will be able to communicate with you, verbalize what YOU should do, and motivate you with their teaching and their choices of works for you. Others will be impossible as teachers - and many of us professional classical musicians have had a couple of those cross our paths, regardless of what instrument we play. It is petty for us to list NAMES of those folks who are one enchanting persona n stage - and real STINKERS off stage, and terrible teachers - but they exist. And yes - there are fine and generous artists who are coveted for their studio time. Ask around form MANY sources before you make a (usaully) high-fee commitment - only to find they make you get angry, or disappointed.
