If I may, I would like to suggest a contest: Find the worst soundfont you can (MuseScore 1 is acceptable if you don't want to download a new one - just use oboe, accordion, or another really bad-sounding instrument soundfont), then write a short song for it and see if you can make it sound good! It can be for any instrument.
The idea is credit of Benjamin Basford (https://musescore.com/basfordmedia - discussion here: https://musescore.com/basfordmedia/moriartys-grip#comment-1049596). The deadline is August 9th, so you have a full month to do it. The judges (me and whoever else would like to be one) can enter but may not judge themselves.
If you're a fan of the popular Hip-Hop Broadway musical Hamilton, then join this discussion! Share anything you want about it.
I recently finished writing a chamber piece for flute, oboe, and harp. I'm hoping to enter it in a competition this fall, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
honestly i feel like the flute doesnt have much RESPECT in the woodwind section
This music music has a sense of tragedy with romanticism and a bit of modernism accents.
Of course you will hear one of the most popular classical music progressions (baroque epochs progressions of fifth) but i wanted to do my own version of that progression. Maybe you can relate my piece with someone others... leave your comment i would like to know what others think...
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!
I would like to know your opinion about my music, maybe u can give me advice? is there some places where my music sounds "a little bit off" or you saw some mistakes in my score let me know...
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.
Hey all! I'm going to audition for my local junior orchestra in the fall, and need some advice... here are the requirements:
- A solo or piece of your choosing that fully demonstrates your finest playing, such as a piece you are working on in lessons or a piece you performed with your school
- A classical concerto for your instrument of your choice
- Major scales and arpeggios up to four flats and sharps
- Melodic minor scales and arpeggios up to four sharps and flats
I have the last four down, I just need help finding a solo piece. If any of you have any suggestions, i'm in need!
Hi, I was wondering, are there any flute players that have Mark Karen’s ‘The Flute Etudes’ book? I’m trying to help out a friend after hearing that the flute etudes used by TMEA are among some of the hardest. I know that most of them that were selected by the author are in public domain, but I don’t know which ones. If you could tell me which etudes are used in the book, that’d be greatly appreciated.
I wanna know some lists of pieces that you all have played during your time in Band in School, and What are some pieces that you all have played with some of the most Infamous straight 16th note runs that last for more than 16 Bars in the Woodwind Parts in Band Pieces? I have one to start it off and it's Metroplex by Robert Sheldon, has anyone ever played this piece or anything just as bad like it?
