Fortunately NOT the piano--but I guess when you have a bunch of different instruments playing in an orchestra, it's easier for some of them to read a different clef because of the notes they usually play (they won't have to deal with all of those extra lines). That's one of the varieties of music my son throws at me to try to sight read. I have enough trouble just with treble and bass, thank you VERY much.

Alto
The alto clef is one of many “C clefs” and is named as such because its center indicates middle C. It is primarily only used for the viola, the viola da gamba, the alto trombone, and the mandola.

The tenor clef is another type of “C clef,” however its center is on the fourth line from the bottom, so middle C is moved up a third from where it was on the alto clef, used for the upper ranges of the bassoon, cello, euphonium, double bass, and trombone. These instruments use bass clef for their low to mid ranges and treble clef for their upper extremes.




Mmm Hmmmm.....RIGHT

I'm taking the dog on a walk now.
I may have heard there were more than 2....but that is all I am used to. I have had to deal with clefs changing on each clef. My hands will have hard time stretching past too many keys above octaves....

Geeze Kenny,

I haven't seen anything that looked that painful since the time I slipped on black ice in the alley in Seattle where I was putting out garbage cans and fell--smacking my elbow most painfully. Six hours later it looked like a canteloupe--the doctor who sucked all the goop out of it said "Try not to do that again--at least not until this one is fully healed.

It's like, can you say "OOOOOWWWWWWW!!!!!!\\

melbrod Speaking of which, I tried copying my version of the 1st movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata again.

We only got through 40 seconds--here's Hairy's opinion:

modm Staging the house for me means
  • Getting the furniture in the right place to show off the rooms
  • Adding some color to areas - such as Navy Blue towels in the Bathrooms. Updated bedspreads and shower curtains in spare bath
  • Hanging some pictures back up on the walls
  • Getting right lights as Mel mentioned - not those cool black lights and nice black light photos
  • Everything clean - hmm hard to do with Mila. We noticed up about 6' on the door where it was painted was a Mila hair stuck in the new paint
  • Getting our rug back from the cleaners

Once we get stuff back together, I will take more photos. Will try and make them Zillow quality....if I can't will have to ask a friend if he would give it a try. Has much better camera and ability than I do....closer to what TN has. Or if my Uncle comes over in March/Apr I can get him to do it! He is on same level as TN with photography.

His first chance was when I started my truck. Second chance after I got dressed he requested 7up. That's it! I'm out of here!

I am back home and not leaving again until Monday morning!

I am trying to make him chicken and dumplings, but his illness is jacking with my intended routine. Plus he will complain because the meal will have onions, celery and carrots in it.

OMG!

Yum Chicken and Dumplings!!!! And I would eat the onions, celery, and carrots (if they are small - carrots that is/are hmm plural not plural sounds funny...or is it that Mel??? )

Does your teacher let (or encourage) you to listen to versions of what you're working on? Mine actually sorta discouraged it (and with no internet, the only things you could find were vinyls of concert performance pieces anyway)--I guess she thought it would affect our interpretation (or massively discourage us to hear the way something SHOULD actually sound. )

Oh, and for sure up and coming no more, if ever. My hands have gotten stiff, mostly from disuse I think--so keep playing or you'll have to go back to the beginning (not quite, but you will have to redo some of that learning).

But speaking of discouragement (which I just was, right?), listening to my son play is intimidating. He loves to rub it in even more, I think, by finding impossible pieces and bringing them to me with an " even YOU could learn this" sort of comment. I struggle with sight-reading; he's a whiz. And the more complicated pieces you play, the more they add in all of those pesky sharps and flats which don't belong in the key signature, and chords and things that are confusing at first glance (and maybe even second or third tries too--or every attempt you make, forever.)

Teacher hasn't said anything about not listening to internet versions. I think right now it is more about learning to sight read, knowing the notes from sight read to keys, scales, tempo (4/4 3/4 2/2 etc...beats, rests). Able to play both hands together, and move about the keyboard. Also follow the dynamics of piano and forte etc....Then as you said the added bits of flats and sharps not in the key....accidentals??? Passing notes...

The lighting can make a big difference in how a house shows, even if you don't have any staging in place.

This is the Original Hallway with artwork etc... The color is Pumpkin Butter from Behr. Light has washed it a bit and it was a bit more deeper in color.



New Hallway with WindFresh White (Sherwin Williams)....off white no real color except a slight gray. No artwork, rugs etc...Mila modelling though


New front door area: to the left is the dining room which we made into an office other sitting area. Original was all pumpkin butter.


Looks a bit better in real life....Neutral grainy photos a bit.
I had to go back and look again.

I like pic 1 the best. I don't want to be looking at a staged area. I want to see the real deal. Just clean the clutter. That's how I bought my house. I was very fortunate and grateful that the previous owners left dishes and furniture behind.

When I took possession of the house, there was a moving wrapped piano left behind. I was hoping they left it behind on purpose. Nope! Moving dudes came to get it.
