I am having trouble thinking of song ideas to compose, I am trying to create a remix kind of like the kinds I play in marching band, Ideas would be really helpful!!!!
Hey guys! This is my first cadence. I made it for my middle school, which has been using the same boring cadence for over 10 years for every single parade. So I wrote this one to see if they'll play it (I'm going into high school now). It's pretty basic, but we start band in 6th grade at my school, so it needs to be to make it playable. anyway, enjoy!
If you like Skrillex, or if you just want something new to play please check this out. Be warned, I added absolutely zero stickings. All I added were the drumline parts. I started out thinking of it like a warm-up, then approached it as a percussion-heavy feature. So, try it, with the bass up, and you might like it.
If its not asking too much i would like to have a sound effect for a gock shot on snare drum. If there already is one then someone tell me how to get the drumset sound for it.
When I'm writing for any ensemble that contains the MDL instruments i always experience a glitch that happens after i stop playing the score. I will usually click the stop button and when it does a huge bang of all of the instruments in MDL being used come at unison and full volume. This will happen a few times and after so many MDL will start glitching and it will make the velocity go all over the place. It makes it sound almost corrupt. I know it isnt corrupt because after restarting the platform everything is fine. Then the sound happens again and it goes haywire and i have to restart the program once again. I've experienced this before but only now has it become extremely prominent. This is my main issue however the problem with shots also bothers me. The unaccented taps are louder than a rim shot. I can get around it by using a ping shot (which is slightly louder but it is still a bit quieter than an accented note) however i still prefer to use a rimshot. Thanks for listening! Hope you can figure out the problem soon.Reply
I'm kinda drawing a blank as far as melodies go and I want to make a longer piece with fast and slow parts. I have almost no direction as of yet but would love it if someone could help make a melody, I will credit you for your work!
In advance, Thanks!
A lot of cool sax players out there, but what is your favorite one and why? What is the particular thing that makes it special for you? what distinguishes him from others?
this is the best form of my mary had a little lamb parody (it sounds dumb, but it actually sis one of my better pieces)
Check it out!
So about 100 hours in and going for my grade 1, looking for small tunes tunes to learn sort of busking music... so can play summertime and amazing grace. I like stuff with some long notes in, struggling as I no music knowledge so proving difficult.

So, you know how I have been working on the 50 follower special composition right? Well, I am 2/3 of the way through it and even include a short bit of canon in the composition. But after this canonic moment, I can't seem to make further progress. I know that I want to go back to G major by means of a plagal cadence(which would require me to substitute C major for C#°) and that I want to end the piece with a plagal cadence.
I have been having this composers block for about a week now. I usually embrace it and just move on to composing something else, but this is a 50 follower special composition that I have been working on.
Articulations have completley stopped working on MDL instruments. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
Hey there! I just got an alto sax from my local music shop a couple of weeks ago. I'm already experienced with many instruments (Piano, Flute, Clarinet) and was wondering if you guys could help me out in any way!
I've kind of played an alto before, as in a friend in my band give me a crash course. (I can play the jeopardy theme song XDD)
Any tips you all would be very much appreciated!
So I have been playing alto for almost two years and I started on the bari sax and I'm pretty good. But all my band music was thrown out for my alto sax(didn't play bari in my band) and I'm looking for songs to play and learn. I want to get better at Bari for the upcoming school year since thats why I'm playing the bari over the summer. Thanks! Hard, easy and in between songs are just fine :)
A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
