I've been sitting on this group for over a year without really doing anything with it. Its original purpose was to bring together the drum corps community on MuseScore by allowing others to post their own drum corps arrangements. In my original post on this group, I mentioned that I wanted to start a series of competitions that you guys can participate in, and I'm happy to say that I'm going to give a go, starting today!
So, what is the first competition?
I want to start off with something simple: Create a drum corps arrangement for any song that has a color in its name.
Here are the rules:
- Follow typical drum corps format (3 trumpet, 2 mellophone, 3 baritone, 1-2 tuba)
- You don't need to include percussion, but it might increase your chances of winning
- Only submit one arrangement per person!
- Arrangement must be at least 1:30 long, but no more than 5:00
When you're ready to enter, just reply to this post with a link to your arrangement.
So, if you win... what do you actually win? In the future, I hope to offer a month of Musescore Pro to winners. Maybe if enough people show interest? For this first competition, though, I will post the winner's arrangement to my YouTube channel, with a link(s) to whatever you want to advertise. Your YouTube, your Instagram, whatever!
Assuming people actually participate, I plan to end this competition by Monday, 10/21. Have fun!
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:
I'm new to this community. I uploaded my second prelude for a string quartet. Check it out, and I hope you like it!
Hey everyone, I am working on rewriting a piece but after opening MuseScore the next morning after working on the piece a bit, I get no sound playback at all. Could someone please help me?
Thanks in advance, Lukas
I uploaded a scherzo for solo violin , check it out:
It's really horrendous !
Hope you enjoy!
~FEEDBACK IS M
I would like to write some notes for drums. The rhythmic part I have no problem, but in big band ensemble I see that it is written in musical notation according to how the arrangement is in winds or brass sections. I read the word "assembly" on top of the battery staff. The question is, how do you write this arrangement? I cannot find the topic in the Musescore manual or guide.
Of course, I thank the entire community if you can send me a link to this chapter.
I am trying to find sheet music from the MSU Boston shows and I am having trouble finding it. If possible could someone take a crack at composing foreplay/long time?
(include woodwinds not just brass)
Got questions about music, instruments, brand names, more?
Fellow members will try to answer them to the best of their ability.
(Life advice is fine as well, I suppose)
Hope y'all are having a great day!

FEEDBACK IS MORE THAN WELCOME AND MUCH APPRECIATED!
