Quite few compositions in this group seem to be about various types of critters -toads, mosquitoes, birds, horses, does sponge bob count as a critter?- do let's have a new exciting contest. You are invited to submit your original critter composition, about any creature you want, as many entries as you want. First, second, and third place winners will be announced after Dec 15. Doesn't this sound exciting? It should since we already have some really great pieces that are of course automatically entered into the contest. As always, we like music that is funny and silly so get those compositions entered and good luck to all.
BarryP in the de-composers group posted a discussion pointing us to a great Youtube vid interpretation of the famous C# minor prelude featuring Harpo Marx. Thought I would pass this along for others to enjoy as well. enjoy.thanks BaryP
New contest 7-18-14
Ok, admittedly, the last contest was a fiasco but this is a real contest, honest. There will be no reanimated judges, no secret invisible winning compositions, no fake winning free trip to a tropical paradise. Instead, here is the deal:
1. only compositions that are actually visible to all can be submitted and entered.
2. The administrator chinadoll (who will not be allowed to enter the contest) will be the sole judge.
3. Entries must be original compositions.
4. Each person entering may submit multiple compositions.
5. Any composition either already posted or newly posted between 7-18 and 10-31 may be entered. to enter, just post a composition or request that one already posted be entered.
6. Entries will be judged based on originality/novelty, humor, silliness, and fun.
7. All compositions will receive a detailed critique of at 30-50 words in length (if that matters to you) by the administrator
8. The prize for the winner will be the honor of winning.
9. The contest will end 10-31-14 and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be announced at this site shortly thereafter.
10. of course, all this is assuming anyone actually enters the contest...
I am looking for some music for my young band to play at concerts and competitions.
I need 3 Cornet/Trumpet parts, 1 Euphonium part, 2 Baritone parts, 3/4 Trombone parts, 1 Tuba part and 2 Horn parts. I do not mind if their is not all the parts since i can do them myself. I just need inspiration.
We need to get more sheet music up. Do you all not agree. I propose that we upload every song with mallets in it. Who wants to second that motion?
We need everyones' help to get more and more people to join so the learners may learn more tecniques and play some diverse sheet music. Who all agrees?
This is a page for all songs including mallet percussion. If you have a song that includes mallet percussion then please post it so that way we can all learn from each other on how to perfect our skills on the mallet instruments.
This is probably my favorite group. What about you? :)
Hey there, I'm new to this group. I play the alto saxophone but I'll be switching to french horn a couple weeks into school. I'm switching because the alto saxophone is really boring to me now. I can't wait, I've played a little bit of french horn before and it's awesome! And I might be keeping my username the same, because I like it, lol. So, if you have and tips and things like that, that'd be greatly appreciated!
I wrote some new lyrics for https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Eternal_Father,_Strong_to_Save
and was wondering if anyone would be interested in arranging for the second 4 verse version.
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 played viva la vida in an african marimba band, only knowing the melody and chords...first time i have written anything...its alright
Hello if you are reading this message then I would think that you are a TENOR saxophone. I have a concert coming up and I need some sheet music that would fit me. I am a 6th grade _______ and I would like some web sites send me some websites. Please help.
Do you feel that there are many things to be improved on when it comes to drums on musescore? For example, musescore is unable to play rolls even when you add the tremolo. Tenors aren't an option on musescore, nor are different pitched bass drums. You could always use a drum set staff, but it would be easier to make tenors as an instrument. Also musescore should have the capability to change sounds/ instruments for one staff, for an auxilary player for example. What else could be improved when it comes to percussion?
