Vince-q, I will pass the suggestions along to him.  The spit argument was all I could add, as I can't play a note.  I can play simple tunes by ear, but never learned how to play anything, and the current discussion goes way over my head :-)

Heh... one guy wrote music for which the part I received for euphonium

was in a theoretical key. I had to deal with double sharps and double

flats.

Play in C#####bbbbb#b#b###bbb

It's really easy.

C# or Cb alone is truly a messed up key in which to play, regardless of instrument.

True. However, C#####bbbbb#b#b###bbb is very easy to play, because it has no sharps or flats.

My two big boys are tone deaf. We realized it with Shlomo when he was preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, but he decided to memorize and work really really really hard, and in the end he read (sang) for his Bar Mitzvah beautifully. We realized it also with Akiva as he started preparing for his Bar Mitzvah, but he doesn't feel aany compelling need to work hard at this. I used to sing all the time, but the kids never join in, and I'm wondering if there is any way to make Akiva be less tone deaf, and I'm wondering if Yaakov will turn out tone deaf too and if there is anything I can do about it now, while he is little.
Adina has been teaching herself to play keyboard so it's probably unlikely that she is tone deaf. I mean, she loves a song and plays around till she figures out how to play parts of it.

Hmm...

If you have a keyboard, you might have them sit where they cannot see the keys, and play two notes. As if they are going up in pitch or down in pitch.
If they can't tell you, they're tone deaf.

Otherwise, they could simply not be practiced at singing.

You know the state of music has truly deteriorated when, now, we have a "style" called "grunge"....

Polka was the punk rock of its day, y'know.

Grunge was the "now" sound perhaps 20 years ago.

I was just thinking that Soundgarden's Superunknown has been out for 20 years now. It was the first CD I bought which wasn't classical or a movie score.

Am I the only one who hears "tons" of Puccini in just about everything Andrew Lloyd Weber has written starting with Cats?

Yes, but Puccini was just stealing from John Williams.

No no no no no no!
WAGNER was stealing from John Williams!

Pretty much everyone stole from John Williams.  Wagner, Puccini, Holst, Dvorak, Prokofiev, Sibelius, Mussorgsky, Stravinsky, Korngold, Perischetti, Strauss ...  all of their stuff was retroactively ripped off from John Williams' completely original compositions.

...and the pathetic part of that is that you can use tensor calculus and string theory to mathematically demonstrate that what you just said is (mathematically) possible! <shrug>

Hm... no mention of Fux, Bach, DesPrez, or event Mozart, but then, those other guys ripped from these guys, so I suppose you could say it happened by proxy.
