That was extremely interesting and very educational.

Thanx for sharing.

I ended up more confused than enlightened.

Although he dismisses it out of hand, Dorian is as much a key as major (Ionian mode) and minor (Aeolian mode).

What's odd is that he treats Ab and G# as different keys. Notation doesn't change the sound of the note. But if you're including enharmonic equivalents, why arbitrarily stop at single flats? Bbb a valid key as well under that definition, which means there are an infinite number of keys.

I'd suggest that if you argued that modes aren't keys, there are only 12 keys - "key" refers to the "key note" of a scale, and there are only 12 distinct notes on my piano (when it's in tune).

I've wondered sometimes why they make us remember
which notes are sharped or flatted, when all they had to do was make a little mark on the appropriate notes. I mean, they dot notes, don't they? If it is a key with only two naturals, mark the naturals. All we'd have to do is learn to recognize
eight more notes.

Your point has merit, but accidentals are intended to serve a different purpose: inform the musician when a note is outside the given key.

So instead of cluttering up the music with something the musician knows - for example, all the Bs in a tune will be flattened - that information is given up front.

That way, the accidental flags when a note will be different than what was expected.

Oh, yeah, dcuny, you're right about that. It would wind up
causing more clutter than usefulness. Many of us, today,
play C, D, E, F, G and A majors, anyway. I have found,
playing guitar and a limited genre, that is PD Hymns,
that when the key is sharp or flat, the "muscle memory,"
if there is such a thing, pretty much sends the fingers
to the right strings without too much mental effort.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
