If the music is written with a sharp indicator at the start of the bar in the key signature, a natural sign then must be placed with a certain note if the composer wants that note to be played natural. Otherwise one is to assume it is to be played sharp.
There is an American piano book called 'Alfred's basic adult piano course, book one'. My mum said that if you still wanted to go ahead with lessons over skype, to buy that book and she can teach you out of the book. Still keen?
I thought the natural would come after, cause, you know; the flat/sharp is already there and you need to tell when it's going to turn back. This is on the piano by the way, if that changes anything.
Umm you kind of worded it weird(well for me anyway lol) but umm if your saying that there is a sharp/flat in the key signature the natural sign come before the note to make it a natural.
I read your question 5 times before i got it lol.. Anyway, yes you do have to have a natural sighn so the flat or sharp becomes natural again if it is in one single measure.
Ah thank you, that makes sense :) sorry for the confusion, couldn't figure out how else to word it!
Need to pay for the lessons first! :)
I Think So.. But Not Positive
and of course, the book :P
