pines of rome would love to see a score with full percussion and Drume core. i wann aplay it ont he tuba.
I'm in eigth grade and I have learned control of the lower register and I am trying to learn altissimo notes. I made the all state band and the highest band at my high school.
Hey! I just joined this group because I hoped I could find people who loved mallet percussion as much as I do. I just added six of my pieces I've made to the group and hoped I could get some feedback on them. Thank you and I hope to be able to help future composers and mallet percussionists! :D
Only just joined this - looking really for some direction. Have been learning for 1 month so know my notes, practice every day . . . . what should I be ding? What should I be expecting?????
I'm thinking about publishing my stuff on Jwpepper.com but i need to know if my pieces are good enough for that. Here's my new song https://musescore.com/cooldog511/scores/5047623
Its kinda copyrighted but i think i can handle it maybe
Hello, I just wrote my first piece entitled "A Rainy Day" for a sax quartet and I would LOVE any feedback. Please listen to it and help me. It would be greatly appreciated. (Just listen to it on my profile)
I have almost a whole show written with no percussion. My background is in mostly wind arranging so a percussion arranger would be amazing! Thanks!
Hey, I was wondering if anybody has found a very good "FULL SHOW" based on the song 2112, if not I was maybe thinking of trying to make one. I know that there is one by some college band that is pretty good but it is only like a 3 min show and I was looking for like a full, and well done, HS or DCI show. If I end up making a show based off of this, please also let me know if you'd be interested in helping me :) THX fellow DCI lovers!

This is the first composition I have ever made, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. It would be really cool if I could turn it into a full concert band piece. Any pointers before I start transposing?
Would anyone here be willing to arrange Crazy la Paint by Minimusicman for a saxophone quartet of two altos, a tenor, and a bari? I think it could really sound great and be lots of fun since it kind of has the feel of an energetic reel, but I'm definitely not up to the task yet.
Hello everyone! I am a professional improvising sax player (mainly tenor sax). Created this group to post sax solo transcriptions synchronized with youtube videos/audios.
Have posted first 2 solos - check out them in "sheet music" section of the group, here they are:
Please feel free to post solos transcribed by you and sync them with original recordings on YouTube.

Wassup musescore family. So if you haven't heard already I'll be dropping a 2k17 Rap / R&B Mix consisting of some of the hottest & most popular tunes of the year.

This is Joshua, and I'm a composer and a performer and a new admin for the group Saxophone Ensembles. I just wanna generate some discussion and get some activity for these forums. Alex has done a really great job so far with his helpful information. Now, it's my turn: to do this, I think the best way to start would be a feedback form: post your scores to the group or just post a link in this chat and I'll do my best to give feedback. Arrangements or original compositions, I'd love to look at all of them and give feedback. This is just to raise some awareness for this community and also get activity going. Expect more discussions and whatnot in the near future.
So, if you want any feedback, I'd be happy to give some to your saxophone score. Post to this discussion or just send to me and I'll take a look at it.
I'm new to musescore. I'd like to add wire brush sounds to my jazz pieces. I don't see them in the drumset. Am I missing something? Thank you.
Hey, I'm relatively new to composing and I would really appreciate feedback on this piece. Especially on the beginning transition. But other than that please enjoy it.
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!!!
Check out the instruction on how to do that:
Post sax solo transcriptions here and sync them with original recordings!
This is a collection of scores for sax+accompaniment (sax+piano or sax+guitar) or solo scores, mostly of classical style, provided by ORWELL6 ( https://musescore.com/user/139709 ), checked by me. I also added some scores there. Please feel free to post more scores of this type (post in this group for now and paste the link to it in comments).
The idea is: If we get more shit music of this type, we will create a separate group of classical sax scores, which will contain this set as a part of it.

It is not discussed too often, but in fact each note fingered on the horn has an “optimal” spot (for lower lip) on the reed. It’s worth covering the edge of the reed with your lower lip for lower notes, whilst uncovering the read is done for higher notes - this allows more of the higher overtones to come out. That is accomplished by lower lip forward and backward movement (not up and down, which results in “biting”): less of the lip’s fleshier area and lip rolling away from the edge of the reed for higher tones (let’s say beginning with higher B - above the staff) and more of the fleshier area and rolling in the direction of the edge of the reed in case of lower tones. You can read more about the lip movement and embouchure in Chapter 6 of David Liebman’s “Developing a personal saxophone sound”
What do you think about this suggestions and what is your experience? I am eager to know how the stuff with lower lip works for you.
