[i] Piano Admin Interview

in MNGA

The MNGA staff took a moment with some random violin kid who thinks he is good but isnt (https://musescore.com/violin_child) to conduct a quick interview. He has a busy schedule of jazz band rehearsals, orchestra concerts, and deleting spam and kicking members, but he was kind enough to humor us. The interview is as follows: 

How did you come across the Piano group?

I came across the Piano group because it's the largest group in Musescore.

How did you become one of the admins for the biggest groups on MS? 

I saw that the owner hadn't been active for months so I messaged the Musescore staff and they made me the new owner. 

What do you do as an admin for Piano?

I mostly delete spam and kick members who are being annoying.

What are the best and worst moments for the Piano group? 

Hmmm...  This is a hard one, the worst is when the really mean troll (LordTroll)  was active, then when he was banned from Musescore it was the best moment.

Piano will soon reach 60K members. What do you think? 

I think that the more members Piano has, the more musicians it will create, like people will want to play piano when they  see all of the cool scores and stuff.

What's a random thought you're thinking right now?

I'm thinking about my solo for an orchestra concert tonight. 

Thanks for your time, some random violin kid who thinks he is good but isnt.

This is MNGA.


 

20th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_cryptogram

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Here is an example where the piece uses a musical cryptogram:

Your submission will be due at 15th February

Music programs in different countries

Hey ya'll I'm 15 y/0 tenor player from Australia and was wondering what music programs you guys have in the countries your in. My school has a Stage Band which plays jazz swing and pop music (which i'm in) which consist of 5 saxes (2 Alto, 2 Tenor, 1 Barri), 4 Trombones (3 Tenor 1 Bass), 4 trumpets, 2 basses as well as a piano player and drum/percussion. 
We also have a concert band made up of all the band instruments which usually plays movie themes and marching pieces (but we never march)

Just wondering what other countries experience and if they like it. 
Thanks for reading!
