Hey fellow trombonists.
Many of you may not know this, but while you may play tenor or bass trombone there are tons of other types. So out of any style of trombone ever what would you put on your wish list. For me it's the Buccin, a trombone only ever used in France from 1810-1845 that has a Sousaphone like bell with a dragon's head on the end. The thing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Buccin_yeo_01.jpg) is one of the coolest looking instruments I've ever seen!
So what do you guys think?
Hey fellow trombonists.
Hi guys I am a intermediate flute player, please give some seggestions for sight reading peices! Thanks!
Hey guys! This is a new ensemble I created a few days ago and we have a serious woodwind deficit as of now... we have three total woodwind players, compared to 7 violins and 14 synths.
I've posted this in a few other MuseScore groups in hopes of attracting a bit more attention to it, and it's worked so far! Here's the rest of the original post.
I'm creating an online orchestra dedicated to performing the works of young composers and putting the videos on YouTube. In the process, composers will get feedback from performers, performers will get more experience playing in different settings, and both will form connections that will be extremely useful (hopefully) in the music industry long-term! It's also a great chance for publicity.
Currently, I'm looking for performers, composers, and editors alike willing to help make this happen.
If you want to join, here's a link to a Discord server dedicated to making this happen!
In anticipation of a few questions, here's an FAQ.
How will you coordinate this?
Our current plan is to have one major piece every two months. Pieces will be member-submitted and member-selected. Parts, an MP3 of the piece being performed by synth instruments, and a metronome MP3 will be sent out. Members will have these two months to work up their part(s) and record themselves playing in time with the metronome that was sent. All members will submit their parts to an official email for the orchestra, which will be made at a later date. Editors will then take over and edit the tracks together.
It will then be posted to an official YCOO YouTube channel with credits to the composer and performers in the description.
What instruments can join?
Currently, standard orchestra and wind ensemble instruments. Non-standard instruments may be accepted, but should not expect a part in every major piece. Right now, we especially need woodwinds, specifically on flute/picc, saxophone, clarinet, and bassoon. We'd also love more low strings, like string bass and cello. But we won't turn you away if you already play an instrument we have lots of. The more, the merrier!
What kind of music will be played?
Orchestral music, wind ensemble music, chamber music, solos. We currently plan to only do original music by young composers but may be open to doing covers once the group has been established.
Chamber music and solos? How will that work?
While the major projects will happen every other month, members will be allowed to arrange small ensembles. Chamber ensembles and solos will be entirely member-run: members will choose a piece, form a small ensemble, send out parts on their own, come up with their own deadlines, and edit the audio and video on their own. Only when the product is complete will it be sent up to us admins to publish it on the YouTube channel.
Is there an audition required?
No. However, if you submit a track of low quality, it may not be used. (Low quality can be defined as: badly out of tune, very bad audio quality, not with the metronome, or played with a bunch of mistakes.)
Video? Will we have to submit videos of ourselves?
No. Submitting videos of yourself playing is entirely optional.
Do you have to play in every major piece?
Nope. We won't kick you out for inactivity.
If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer! In case you don't want to scroll back up, here's that link again.
Here's a link if you're interested but can't join the Discord so we can still get your information.
here is one of my works
please give me your thoughts.
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.
My new album "Rag Tales" is out now. You can find it on Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, and Google Play among others. I got started right here on Musescore when I was invited to the ragtime players group. Please check it out. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you friends. Just search for " CJ Brandt" or "Rag Tales". Thanks again
Okay, So I have a concert coming up at the end of the year and I need a solo piece, a duet piece and a trio piece ALL for Flute. Not too hard but not too easy. If they are easy, make them SOUND hard. If your piece is selected, when the piece is played, YOUR name will be announced as the composer, along with the piece's title that you feel is appropriate for it. If I choose the piece and all goes over well, you may have to write and compose a piece for a full band setting for a concert for my concert band. So PLEASE participate! It's a great way to get your name out there and have your music played and finally heard!!
Submit your piece with the title you that have selected (must be original).
The Subtitle must be one of two options:
Option 1 - "Piece for Concert"
Option 2 - "Piece for Contest"
If your piece doesn't have one of the two selected subtitle, it will not be considered.
You must also have the composers name (YOU) and the instrument name (flute for the entrance piece). It may be for solo flute, duet, trio or even a flute quartet.
Due Date for the pieces is: Friday, March 30, 2012! :)
Any questions, feel free to ask! :) Good Luck!
AND make sure you have fun and try your best!! :))
All right everyone. We’re taking part of BSBass Clarinet’s Mater Composers competition. We just simply post a composition to this group and post votes for which piece we want to win on this topic.
The rules as posted by BSBass Clarinet are:
“1- Submit your best score to your group(s) that you are a part of.
2- Submit any score that YOU have written, whether it be concert band, orchestra, quartet, triplet, ect.
3- Your score has to be at least 25 seconds long (no limit to how long it can be)
4- If you are a member of multiple groups, select only one group to submit your music to please; we don't want 1 user winning all the groups' competitions
5- Do NOT vote on your own score, unless you have 0 votes (as of the last day to vote)
6- Please post only scores with playable parts (ask a member that plays the instrument that has the hard or impossible part, if you can't tell)
7- Enter ONLY music that you have written (no arrangements, or anything that isn't written by yourself). If anyone tries to win this competition by posting an arrangement under their own name, they will be banned from this group forevermore.
8- Post a reply to a discussion on your instrument group telling which composition you would like to vote on by whatever date we choose.
9--ALL WORKS MUST BE ORIGINAL PIECES WRITTEN BY OR CO. WRITTEN BY THE USER WHO ENTERS IT. NO ARRANGEMENTS. IF A USER WROTE THE LYRICS, WHILE ANOTHER WROTE THE MUSIC, THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED LEGAL, ACCORDING TO THE RULES OF THIS ORGANIZATION.”
Hey guys, I'm relatively new here. I have only these two arrangements out, but I would love feedback in regards to if they're too easy/hard, and just overall if they sound alright. I'm a pretty young composer, so any sort of comments would be great for me. Thanks!
I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!
Thanks in advance!
I would like to add my music to this group but, I don't know how to.
