i recently made an arrangement from ravels piano trio and im curious of what you guys think of it leave a like and add comments of what you would do. its not done yet and i need a lot of battery parts
Firstly, I wanted to say hello and make a brief introduction. I have recently joined the MuseScore team. I'm a big fan of marching bands and have been very active with marching bands, drum corps, winter guards, anything marching music related. I look forward to getting to know this group and helping to create the best marching music community anywhere.
I also wanted to let you all know about two other things:
1 - There is a Christmas contest in the DCI group where you can win various DCI-related prizes (Key Poulan is judging)
2 - There is also a new Marching Percussion group that is the first MuseScore Official group ever
Links to both groups:
I would love some assistance on ideas, theme, and overall just making an amazing unique show.
Ive already contacted other users to make shows, but I decided to see if any one is up to the task!
Some selections of songs I had in mind(Of course not all of them):
Ride the Lightning - Metallica
Rooster - Alice in Chains
Hey Jude - The Beatles (Trumpet screaming ideas?)
Mama, I'm comin' home - Ozzy
Paper Cut - Alex Shapiro
The Cave You Fear - Michael Markowski
Ride - Sam R. Hazo
Mars - Gustav Holst (SCV 12)
Piano Concerto Mvt. 4 - John Corigliano (Pr 06 and SCV 2015 Closer)
Medea - Bartok (Star of Indiana 93 or Crown 16)
Canyon - Phillip Glass (SCV 1999 and Warm Up)
One - Metallica
Dreams 3 (Visions) - Bertrand Moren (Crown 2012 Closer)
I still have no theme set in stone yet. I'm also not that great at writing battery.
I'm good with Pit percussion, Brass, and Electronic sounds.
If you have any interest of joining the band wagon, and/or shooting some of you ideas, send me a message, I usually always respond asap!
Im trying to transcribe Funkafried by the Bottom Line, or the 09 Academy Contra line. Im in need of some assistance with some of the solo parts and the fast parts, please message me if you want to help!
I was requested a brass quartet arrangement for a Stardew Valley song (the arrangement is here : https://musescore.com/user/5174461/scores/3443856). However, I know close to nothing about theses instruments. I asked the "requester" (is that a word ?) for some feedback but it's been something like a month so I'm not sure I'm gonna get any... I'd still like to finish this arrangement properly so here I am seeking feedback :)
I've already been searching the web for advices but I'm not sure theses replace real experience with the instrument.
Some of my worries / concerns :
Some things may be weird, unplayable, and so on. The song is very rhythmic focused, so I think it's important every player can play his/her part very accurately, or the whole thing will
feel unstable - which is why it's not a good thing if some part are weird to play (some percussions would remove this concern, but it wouldn't be a brass quartet arrangement then)
More precisely :
- if there's not enough time to breath
- if a part isn't in the good range for the instrument (too high / too low / makes thing too difficult)
- if a part is just too quick to be played accurately
- if a part is too tiring for the player
- if a part is assigned to the wrong instrument (another instrument would play the part more easily)
In particular :
- measure 5-9 : not sure whether tuba or trombone has the easiest time for this part. It seems to be more in tuba's range but can definitely be played a bit higher if needed.
- measure 10-17 : same as above for tuba/trombone (for both parts). Also I removed a lot of stuff from the bass line (played by trombone) in order to make it more playable, but maybe that's not enough or is not necessary
- measure 18+ for trumpet : is that even remotely playable for trumpets ? Is it too tiring on the long run ? (i.e. I should switch the trumpets often, or even shorten the whole thing because it repeats a lot in the original song)
- measures 26-33 for tuba : is that too quick ?
Thanks a lot !
Wassup y'all.. This is a just message to all the arrangers/composers in this group no matter what age, race or gender. I just wanted to remind you to keep grinding & improving. There's always going to be room for improvement, no matter how "good" or "bad" you are at what you do. Even though I may not know most of you we all have one thing in common: a love for music. It's amazing how much love we all share for music because music can literally change lives.. it changed mine. Before music I felt like I didn't have a purpose. I'd join clubs and play sports but I never truly felt at home. This was until I joined band my 8th grade year & my life began to change for the better. Since then I knew that music is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, particularly band. I've grown a lot over the past years playing wise and arranging wise & I'm even drum major now for my high school. But saying all this to say, never give up on your dreams despite all the negative encounters that may come your way. I believe everyone has a purpose in this world & ours is to make the world a better place through MUSIC. Sounds corny but that's just what I truly believe & I'm positive that all of you are gonna be something in the future. Keep up the good work man & always remember that the sky ISN'T the limit, but your mindset is. Stay blessed family.
i recently made an arrangement from ravels piano trio for a percussion show and i need some feedback, advice, and suggestions on how to make it sound better. please listen and leave a like if you loved and and add comments on what you would do. Much appreciated:)
Make sure to follow my main account (PIEridot with no numbers after it) in case I get a pro account.
I won't need this whole group if that happens.
