I would love to start my own A Capella group but I don't know how! Can someone tell me how to get started?
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.
Laugh Silly is a group on Musescore. What is really meant by the question is: Can music that focuses on being silly just to provoke a laugh, music that seems to enjoy depreciation and decomposition as laugh-worthy themes, music that further seems to work hard at avoiding being serious, be considered a serious art form worthy of respect? And wouldn't this be totally counter to the point? How can anything that doesn't want to be serious, be considered serious? How can anything that doesn't want respect, accept any form of respect? How can anything that simply wants to be silly be an art form? Once it becomes serious, respectful, and an art form, it basically disintegrates and is no longer what it sets out to be. It is a quandary. Are we asking the wrong question?
various serious comments are allowed here since this is not such a silly site after all.
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 play 14 how many in total do all of you play?
Do any of you guys have trouble formatting your arrangements to print? It always seems like it's either too big and takes a million pages or too small on the page. What can I do to make my arrangements look decent without killing too many trees?
I've edited and uploaded a lot of canons and rounds. Feel free to use whatever you find there. The group is named "Canons". And, of course, if you have some sheet music to add to the group, I'm grateful.
Ist diese Methode Noten zu verteilen sinnvoll und nützlich?
Funktioniert's mit den MuseScore Songbook Apps für iOS und Android?
I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!
Thanks in advance!
Hello everyone, I am tehdude15, and I will be assuming authority of the Brass group until Januslj gets back from hiding in the woods (metaphorically). This group is just a division of The Master Composers/Arrangers:
I am going to host a contest. The winner of this contest moves up to the finalist round hosted in The Master Composers/Arrangers group. Here are the rules:
1- Submit your best Star Wars arrangement.
2- It can be any song from any Star Wars movies, arranged by you without help from someone else.
3- Your score has to be at least 20 seconds long (no limit to how long it can be).
4-Voting will open 12am (Pacific Time), May 15, 2012.
5-Voting will close on 7pm (Pacific Time), May 18, 2012.
6-You cannot vote on your own composition FOR WHATEVER REASON.
7-Tell me your entry as soon as possible.
8-Do not enter a composition with impossible parts.
9-Just because this is a Brass group, it doesn't mean your entry piece has to be all brass. It could be a Bagpipe Quartet for all I care.
Email your MuseScore name and the name of your entry piece, with correct capitalization, to email@example.com
Join The Master Composers/Arrangers if you want to vote in the finalist round.
I am lenient on rule 8.
I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.
Okay, So I have a concert coming up at the end of the year and I need a solo piece, a duet piece and a trio piece ALL for Flute. Not too hard but not too easy. If they are easy, make them SOUND hard. If your piece is selected, when the piece is played, YOUR name will be announced as the composer, along with the piece's title that you feel is appropriate for it. If I choose the piece and all goes over well, you may have to write and compose a piece for a full band setting for a concert for my concert band. So PLEASE participate! It's a great way to get your name out there and have your music played and finally heard!!
Submit your piece with the title you that have selected (must be original).
The Subtitle must be one of two options:
Option 1 - "Piece for Concert"
Option 2 - "Piece for Contest"
If your piece doesn't have one of the two selected subtitle, it will not be considered.
You must also have the composers name (YOU) and the instrument name (flute for the entrance piece). It may be for solo flute, duet, trio or even a flute quartet.
Due Date for the pieces is: Friday, March 30, 2012! :)
Any questions, feel free to ask! :) Good Luck!
AND make sure you have fun and try your best!! :))
Can we have a thread where people post all of the different things about how to play woodwinds, starting with the basics of how the sound is produced and how the keys work, and going to various techniques such as fluttertonguing and other things? I think it would be a help for composers who want to write for woodwinds but don't play them (such as myself). I know the basics from Orchestration by Samuel Adler, but it would be nice to have them explained from actual wind players.
I think the ooohs and aaahs in my Fluid R3 soundfont are not percussive enough to approximated a tight a cappella group.
I'm using the FluidR3_GM soundfont and the oohs and aahs are fine but unintelligible with anything rapid (because there are no consonants).
Is there a doo and daa soundfont out there? (maybe like an a cappella soundfont or something?)
I was curious about what type of a capella music you are interested in collecting? Are you looking for arrangements of current pop songs? Are you affiliated with an a cappela church and looking for arrangements of worship songs?
I'm having trouble with irregular font size of lyrics that I have corrected and replaced. Anyone else? How can I remedy this?
