What is the nature of music?
What constitutes good music?
Why is musescore such a great place to compose music and hear what others compose?
Why does this iPad keep trying to change my words? In the last question, instead of "compose" it tried to change it to "can moose"
What do mooses have to do with music composition?
Is there anything wrong with writing monologues?
Why do I write monologues?
Why do I use the word "monologues" instead of "monologue"
Why is monologue spelled "monologue" instead of "monolog"?
Why are there so many questions?
When am I going to stop writing these annoying questions?
Why are you still reading this if it is so annoying?
When will this end?
Is that a question?
What is the nature of music?

Another #MusescoreMonday release from team RD
This time it's another rudimental lick.
Check it, learn it, share it
Hello, I deleted my old account (facebook) and created this one. I also uploaded my Op.1 No.1 Waltz here if anyone wants to view it. It's been updated a lot by the way, it isn't just a re-upload.
This blog looks pretty new. It sounds like it would be really good for learning piano. I think it has some interesting ideas. What do you all think about it? Would it be possible to use something like this to help you learn piano? Here is the website:
here's another #MusescoreMonday release from us. This time it's odd time rudimental warming up.
Check it out and let us know what you think!
Useful musical notations with some translations as well
Accelerando – to gradually get faster since you are such a slow poke; 急いで、私は私の歯科医の予定に到達する必要があります
Andante – a walking tempo, temporarily, until you trip over a sixteenth note; 足にけいれんがありました
Basso continuo – a form of bass line from the baroque period, noted with numbers that indicate chords, probably in a random nonsensical fashion according to the whims of the composer; あなたは生の魚を食べたことがありますか
Berceuse – a lullaby, causing you to doze off and miss your cue. Then the conductor throws his or her baton at you, stabbing you through the heart, and forever after you mournfully haunt the concert hall; matur nuwun sewu lulla, aku wis wektu swell
Crescendo – growing as in a swelling of sound, short for "Criminy, close the blooming window"; te recomendamos a good restaurant
Expressive – play expressively, sometimes with tears, grimacing, and much gnashing of your teeth; Har du noen kippers, jeg er sulten
Fugue – contrapuntal, someone's contrary uncle; غوريلا قليلة في العالم
Gigue – a lively dance form from the baroque, and when the music stops, everyone yells "gique!" and everyone falls down laughing: uma ingaphukile ungayilungisi
Giocoso – play the piece cheerfully or in a playful way, what other way is there? আমার পায়ের আঙ্গুল ব্যাথা, এটা কিছু মাখন করা
Leggiero – lightly without force, also a type of linguini; hvis du kommer til at trykke mig på skulderen, gør det forsigtigt, tak. Jeg er hele fra mudderbrydning i aftes
Legno – for string players to use wooden side of bow to hit the strings, and sometimes the heads of other players; fass mein Bein nicht an NEIN!
Mezzo – half, what the conductor says you will be paid for a performance; Hatagan ko ikaw niini nga donut
Passacaglia – baroque dance form with a short melodic phrase, usually in the bass, and sometimes in the basement; 海龜是很棒的寵物
Poco a poco – little by little, you poka me, I poka you to the tune of a polka; ти ме тласкаш и аз ще те съборя
Rallentando – gradually slower, since we get tired during a performance such as one of Wagner's 8 hour opera performances; когда я становлюсь старше, я становлюсь медленнее
Ritenuto – slow down, obviously a curse word in Italian meaning "addle-brained musician who can't stay on the beat" but few will admit it ; Εγώ θα puke εάν δεν οδηγείτε πιο αργά
Rubato – play with freedom, deviate from strict tempo to get more expressive playing, also another curse word, loosely translated "you are a fat pig"; onde fica o banheiro?
Scherzo – joke, fast light-hearted, the sound an Italian makes when he or she sneezes (I'm part Italian so I am allowed to do Italian jokes); La tua faccia sembra un formaggio ammuffito
Sarabande – in baroque, a slow, genteel dance in triple time, also a small musical group led by the famous singer, Sara; Ég stakk upp á hundinn þinn
Triple time – three beats to a measure like ¾, also, multitasking, doing three things at once like drinking a soda, texting and driving causing you to rear end a truck; Эмнэлэг хаана байна вэ?
Yeah, another contest, but not necessarily with musical compositions. A number of banana recipes have already been posted in the comments to "banana, signature edition" and you are invited to submit your own unique/strange/fascinating banana recipes in this new contest. First, second, third, and honorable banana mention awards will be given. No rules ('rules? we don't need no stinking rules'). So let the merriment begin. The contest will end January 1, 2015.

Do you have any memory tricks ( mnemonics ) for memorizing pieces your working on? Instead of just brute force repetition how do you practice the most effectively ?What ideas do you have for memorizing the circle of fifths?
I'm interested in finding ways to use brain training with my musical studies so I'm curious to find out what tricks you guys have out there.
Let er rip!
