As for music reading, yes, I have an extensive knowledge of writing
and reading music, as does my sister (who taught me most of what I
know). I was in band for all of middle school and most of high school,
and my sister taught me how to read music at the age of 6 (basic
notes, of course) and to play the recorder at that same age! She is a
music education major, so if I don't know something, I can ask her.

and has not taken any time to learn medieval scoring (I know some), so
I'll have to do it modern style if I expect him to use the book at all :D
