Handel's Hallelujah Chorus is a great example of harmony: both homophonic - when everyone sings together at the same time forming chords with the melody on top - and polyphonic - when each part sings a melodic line with the notes of each countermelody forming harmony.

Haydn's 2nd Movement of his "Surprise" Symphony is an excellent piece for exploring dynamics. Note the p for piano and pp for pianissimo at the beginning - and then the big surprise after the 1st 2 phrases - ff fortissimo!

The metronome app video on the left shows tempo markings, number of beats per minute, time signatures, note values, etc. Yes, there is no music....just the ticking of a metronome! The 2nd video from Yamaha shows you how a musician relies heavily on a metronome for tempo. "Timing is everything."
