Thanks

Thanks to all the new members for joining our banana party. There seem to be quite a few 'banana' composers here at musescore, whether ithe music is about the fruit banana or banana fish or banana fairies or whatever or if the music is just plain banana silly. Post your music, tell your friends. I even heard that some higher up in the government was thinking of joining since they have lots of experience in being completely bananas.

HELP, PLEASE!

Can someone please tell me how to make a score? I have no idea and I have a beautiful piano and violin duet to be made.I have looked it up on my iPad and I still do not know how.Can someone please tell me step by step.Thank you, and sorry to bother you!☺️

K 545 Second Draft

I decided to revisit one of my older string quartet arrangements. As you can probably guess, it is the K 545 sonata. This time, I had a harmonic  analysis to help me stay more true to the original harmony. I decided, for now at least, to have the sixteenths in the second movement be played by the second violin.  The countermelody method that I went right for in my first draft is tricky, especially to keep consonant with both the melody and the harmony. So, as I try to figure out a good countermelody, I have the sixteenth notes in the second violin in this draft. Hopefully, I will figure out a good countermelody so that I can  put the sixteenth notes into the viola, and not have to do octave alterations as you can see I did in certain places in the second movement. Until then though, the sixteenths will be in the second violin, with the viola harmonizing the bass line.

Here is the second draft of my string quartet arrangement of K545:

Vibrato for Trumpet

in Brass

Hey all!
This one is mainly a question for high brass but if any other could help me that would be great. I'm in 11th grade and I am a 3rd year trumpet. Right now, we are focusing on marching songs, but after Football season, we mainly play concert songs. One of those is a pretty well known trumpet piece called "A Trumpeter's Lullaby". I normally am a second chair but my band director "surprised me" and gave me solo. I've played it before but never solo. Since I am doing the solo, should I use vibrato at the appropriate times? If so, what method should I use? I obviously wouldn't use the wind speed method. So I would either use my hand or move my jaw slightly. Which one should I use? Let me know!
Thanks!
