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.
I really would love some feed back on these two original compositions. Please let me know if I can do anything to make these better. The pieces arn't really that hard, but if there is something as is odd, please point it out.
Thanks in advance!
here is one of my works
please give me your thoughts.

Welcome to the Saxophone group! Here is some Information for you and links to sax scores and other sax-related groups on MuseScore.
First of all, this particular group (Saxophone) is kind of “basic” saxophone group, containing discussions and articles about saxophone. To read an article - just scroll down after clicking the "discussions" section. You will recognize an article in "discussions" by the [article] prefix in its title.
You are very welcome to make more posts!
Then, here are some links to other saxophone-related groups including sets of valuable saxophone scores:
1) Saxophone ensembles group (quartets,quintets,etc.) -
2) Jazz Standards Lead Sheets -
3) Sax arrangements group - saxophone arrangements of rock/pop music or movies’/games’ soundtracks
4) Sax solo transcriptions -
5) Collection of scores: sax solo or with accompanying instrument - https://musescore.com/groups/saxophone/discuss/5015764
Feel free to create discussions and articles, to add your scores and to comment!
I'm trying to arrange a string quartet cover of Bird Set Free by Sia and I have most of it done. I just need help with some of the parts where, in the song, Sia is just riffing and singing kind of free in the background. Her doing that makes it really dramatic and highlights the climax which is why I want to try and imitate it. But I can't figure out the notes or how to write it (the rhythms, ornamentations, etc.). So if anyone would be interested in helping me out I'd really appreciate it! Just let me know and I'll send you the piece.
I was curious about what type of a capella music you are interested in collecting? Are you looking for arrangements of current pop songs? Are you affiliated with an a cappela church and looking for arrangements of worship songs?
This is the first composition I have ever made, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. It would be really cool if I could turn it into a full concert band piece. Any pointers before I start transposing?
Would anyone here be willing to arrange Crazy la Paint by Minimusicman for a saxophone quartet of two altos, a tenor, and a bari? I think it could really sound great and be lots of fun since it kind of has the feel of an energetic reel, but I'm definitely not up to the task yet.
Hello everyone! I am a professional improvising sax player (mainly tenor sax). Created this group to post sax solo transcriptions synchronized with youtube videos/audios.
Have posted first 2 solos - check out them in "sheet music" section of the group, here they are:
Please feel free to post solos transcribed by you and sync them with original recordings on YouTube.
See the post below on synchronizing scores with youtube videos/audios
This is Joshua, and I'm a composer and a performer and a new admin for the group Saxophone Ensembles. I just wanna generate some discussion and get some activity for these forums. Alex has done a really great job so far with his helpful information. Now, it's my turn: to do this, I think the best way to start would be a feedback form: post your scores to the group or just post a link in this chat and I'll do my best to give feedback. Arrangements or original compositions, I'd love to look at all of them and give feedback. This is just to raise some awareness for this community and also get activity going. Expect more discussions and whatnot in the near future.
So, if you want any feedback, I'd be happy to give some to your saxophone score. Post to this discussion or just send to me and I'll take a look at it.
What soundfont do you use? I tried many but still not happy. Thanks.
Can we have a thread where people post all of the different things about how to play woodwinds, starting with the basics of how the sound is produced and how the keys work, and going to various techniques such as fluttertonguing and other things? I think it would be a help for composers who want to write for woodwinds but don't play them (such as myself). I know the basics from Orchestration by Samuel Adler, but it would be nice to have them explained from actual wind players.
i am new here.
please can you hear to my music
and tell me your thoughts.
perhaps i can improve it.
So, I just hit the big 300 mark! What should I do? I Was thinking of revamping/ finishing the old old old Phantom of the opera string quartet I had done a million years ago Lol So If you have a suggestion of a piece I should arrange, or an interesting idea for an original, Then feel free to share! Thanks!!!
Check out the instruction on how to do that:
Post sax solo transcriptions here and sync them with original recordings!
This is a collection of scores for sax+accompaniment (sax+piano or sax+guitar) or solo scores, mostly of classical style, provided by ORWELL6 ( https://musescore.com/user/139709 ), checked by me. I also added some scores there. Please feel free to post more scores of this type (post in this group for now and paste the link to it in comments).
The idea is: If we get more shit music of this type, we will create a separate group of classical sax scores, which will contain this set as a part of it.

It is not discussed too often, but in fact each note fingered on the horn has an “optimal” spot (for lower lip) on the reed. It’s worth covering the edge of the reed with your lower lip for lower notes, whilst uncovering the read is done for higher notes - this allows more of the higher overtones to come out. That is accomplished by lower lip forward and backward movement (not up and down, which results in “biting”): less of the lip’s fleshier area and lip rolling away from the edge of the reed for higher tones (let’s say beginning with higher B - above the staff) and more of the fleshier area and rolling in the direction of the edge of the reed in case of lower tones. You can read more about the lip movement and embouchure in Chapter 6 of David Liebman’s “Developing a personal saxophone sound”
What do you think about this suggestions and what is your experience? I am eager to know how the stuff with lower lip works for you.
