Rachmaninoff - Moments Musicaux Op. 16 No.1

in Piano

I just started transposing this piece on Musescore, and something struck me as odd. In the second measure, the right hand progression is written as D flat, F, G natural, A flat, B flat, C. In every recording I've listened to, the A flat is played as an A natural. The A flat that's written in the score doesn't sound right at all. Has anyone else ever worked on this piece or noticed the atonality of this section? The piece is otherwise beautiful and I can't wait to finish it so I can share it with the community.

Memory Tricks For Music?

Hidey Ho Boys and Girls

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.

Reducing Pain

Hi! I've been practicing the marimba a lot recently, and I have blisters on my fingers. My forearms are very sore and painful too (I can't even stretch them now). Could anyone give me some tips on reducing pain/preventing them in the first place? Thanks in advance!!!
