Ahh i see. That must be very hard to compose. Does the voices repeat and then stop, so the last voice entering would be playing the last two bars alone?

Damage to wood is most likely to occur sooner, rather than later. That is why wood should be aged before it goes into a piano. If damage has not shown up in an old piano, you could be replacing good wood and well-made wood parts with bad wood and/or

Brian, I'm trying to understand the word "parallel". I know that for scales, where we say "relative major" (A minor, C major) and "tonic major" (A minor, C major), in the US you say "parallel major" instead of

I think you're confusing the first and the second voice. What happens is this: the first voice plays the first two bars alone. Then, when the first voice gets to bar 3, the second voice enters, but starts from bar 1 - you now have polyphony. When the

So it would be a monophony sound. I initially thought the second voice would enter at bar three (segno), when the first voice is at first bar. It wouldn't be a canon, but it would atleast be imitation. Though not sure if such a composition is possibl
