You must be creative! this competition is all about being creative with the colors in the orchestra, the winning score will be judged on usages of color and creativity! :D

Deadline: Must submit before April 1st. (unless not enough entries have been made, then I will change it to May 1st)

Have fun Everyone! :D

(put links to your arrangements down below!)

And once the submissions are closed, I will post a score with my own Orchestration :D

Wait What?!

I can't believe it! I'm about to hit 50 followers (only need 7 more)! I know that it isn't mush, but it is something right? Tell if you would like to see an original composition, or an arrangement of a song you like. I'm going to take probably 3-5 ideas so choose wisely as I'm putting this discussion in all the groups I'm in.

For those of you who wanted to do the Competition (ANNOUNCEMENT)

Sorry all, not enough people entered, and it's the day before February, so I regret that I will now end this because not enough entries wee given. :(

But... I am thinking I will do another competition for the summer. and it will be nature themed, so stay tuned for that!! :D

(and that competition will be for any type of ensemble. I might do a prize, but we will see :D)

Synchronize YouTube Lot Videos with Scores

Not sure how many of you know about the MuseScore feature where you can synchronize a YouTube video with a score, but thought it could be pretty cool to sync up some lot videos.

Here is an example of a synchronized score: https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/drum-corp

This could take the concept of Vic Firth's "Learn the Music" to the next level. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCq9eCicq8HmD80vSyIbp8w
