Hello, I'm writing a piece for my orchestra to play at the end of the school year, and I have a rough draft done. I'd really appreciate anything you have to say about it, especially criticism (but, of course, compliments feel good too). I don't want to look like a fool :P so I want to polish up this piece really well, even if that means writing another draft, or just write a different piece entirely.
So, I have high school audition's next week and I was wondering if anyone would want to hear me and give me some tips on how to play the stuff better. If you are interested send me a discord friend request at: master9729#3559
I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...
It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.
(If I'm way to active, let me know)
Great emotional piece with some legendary oboe solos. Be sure to have mastered dynamic influence while going into notes, that's a key part in this song. Don't forget to breath, you'll need all the air possible for this one.
This is my first composure and if you could give me feedback on what I could do differently next time that would be amazing :)
Hey y'all! I'm LuckyFinGirl, new to this group but not MuseScore. I am a long time violist of 11-12 years now (started when i was extremely young) and I recently sparked an interest in composing and arranging music. My music academy has 7 other violists, one as advanced as me and the others intermediate. I'm struggling to come up with a good way to write an ensemble piece on multiple levels. Any ideas, thoughts, tips?
I'm trying to get in a chamber orchestra that hands out scholarships to very good violists. I've only been playing for a year and a half but I'm accelerated.I need a catchy piece that I can work on to really impress the judges. Easy or hard, it just needs to be catchy :)
The craziest people I've ever known are double reeds. Like thinking about the strangest things for no reason, even though you have no interest in them. Maybe it's the back pressure getting to my skull.
Will let you know if I get any aneurysms lol
This is my first chamber piece. Though it is an early project, it is an ambitious one. Celebrating the centenary of WW1, piece seeks to pay tribute to those who have fallen of The Great War. Any feeback would me much appreciated!
To all those who play the flute, what exactly do we call ourselves? Like people who play the clarinet are clarinetists, people who play percussion are percussionists, but what are we? Flutists? Flautists? Floutisits? Flutation devices?
