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!!!
I want to put "The Burning Fires of Hell March" in this group but I do not know how.
If you have a Drumline Battle team formed, let us know your team size and instrumentation as well as other special skills and equipment you might have e.g. electronics, mics. Someone here may select your group and write a custom show.
A few helpful items:
Do you need visuals and music, just music?
When do you anticipate starting rehearsals?
What skills can each section successfully achieve?
Sometimes inspiration strikes and you can't find time to make it happen. Or, you have an idea that you'd really love to perform. Maybe, you're just feeling stuck and need a little inspiration from others.
Use this thread to share unrealized ideas with the world. Half-baked, fully-baked or just kernels of ideas are all welcome.
As I look at my personal goals for 2018, one item that doesn't have a clear path forward for me is to do some battery arrangements for marching bands.
While I have a fair amount of experience teaching HS students in-person, I don't have anything on my musical resume related to arranging.
What's the best way to get in touch will smaller bands - where I'd like to begin - and have the director feel confident that I can deliver quality parts at the appropriate difficulty level for their students?
When you write cadences for your battery, what goals do you have in mind? Do you write something extra challenging since it's not formally judged? Is it purely an exercise to hype the crowd and shake their butts? What is your approach?
If you haven't seen this, MuseScore is sponsoring an arrangement contest and pure battery / percussion arrangements are eligible.
Welcome to the MuseScore Official Marching Percussion Group (the very first MuseScore official group).
The purpose of this group is to not only share great sheet music, but for sharing knowledge, information and discussion about ANYTHING related to marching percussion.
ALL styles are welcome, in fact, the more the better - DCI, WGI, HBCU, Big 10, High School, Marching Band, Sports Drumlines, Military & Traditional, Pipe drumming, anything goes.
In addition to the general MuseScore Community Guidelines, there is only one other rule here - criticism is not only welcome, but encouraged, but keep in mind it is meant to help build each other up, not tear anyone down. Give advice how you'd wish to receive.
I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.
We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)
various serious comments are allowed here since this is not such a silly site after all.
here is an idea for a new competition
someone will start a composition with maybe 5-10 bars and then another person will continue it for another 5-10 measures, and then the next person and so on until the game will unexpectedly end (the music stops, in other words) and the last one to enter when the music stops (as determined randomly by the one running the competition) wins.
any takers or anyone want to start a piece?
I realize there is likely a discussion of this elsewhere but decided to have my own discussion to keep track of issues. you are welcome to add your own comments of course.
notice that some compositions created in the older version don't open in the newer one, says they are corrupted. I realize my music is very corrupt but musescore could have been a little nicer about it all. that is just plain mean.
notice that the violin sounds a lot better, more pleasant ( I won't say it sounds more like a real violin being played because then it would sound worse, if I was playing anyway)
but also notice that the overall sound seems very quiet. I have to turn the computer volume up really high. and then if I forget and play something with the older version, I am deafened. yowza!
wonder how music made with this new version plays at the online musescore site, or does the sound balance get messed up as it does now…
haven't found how to do some things… seems they changed the layout a bit.
