I am a beginner French horn and I am currently renting one from my school. The one I am renting is very beat up and scratched and I would like to get some suggestions for French horns in the range of 1k - 3k USD.
Hello FHP, can someone tell me how they best build their stamina when playing? I find myself commonly running out of energy to play, and can't play so high for that session after having played long or high. How do I make my playing sessions last longer without me losing range so quickly?
Hi, I´m bored because I always playing the same songs, please recommend me interesting and medium level songs.
Hi, it's my first time dealing with a brass band, so i'll really appreciate any feedback (long or short) for it!

Hello! Mark and I have finalized the brass parts for the ballad of our original show, 2 + 2 = 5. The ballad we've chosen is The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng, as we believe it fits the theme of the show - George Orwell's "1984" - perfectly.
If you are unfamiliar with the project, here is a quick summary:
Mark and I plan to have as many of you submit recordings of yourselves playing through the show as we can. We will then compile the recordings into one large file, and place it over virtual drill that Mark is writing, to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. If you'd like to record, here's all the info you'll need!
You can play through as many parts as you'd like. In fact, we would much appreciate it if you did! (For example, if you play the trumpet, it will be better for the end result if you record and submit all three trumpet parts, rather than just doing one) Of course, you don't have to do this! Mark and I will be listening through each recording of the trumpet soloist's part, and picking the one we think would best benefit the overall recording.
We would prefer if you submit one large (3-ish minute) recording, but if you find it difficult to play through the part(s) in one sitting, please refer to the recording guide below!
Here is the link to all the parts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CTplR1RBHZX2YCJZ80M35VF20sjaPI9u?usp=sharing
3.) Recording Guide
Recording One: Beginning to Letter D
Recording Two: Letter D to Letter F (Trumpets, include two measure pick-up)
Recording Three: Letter F to Letter I
Recording Four: Letter I to the end
Again, we'd much prefer your recording be from the beginning to the end, to simplify our own work, but we decided to include this in case some need the breaks in between. Trumpets obviously don't need a recording one/four, as they don't play at these points. Please play the part at the exact tempo that's listed. This can easily be done by playing along with the recording (preferably while wearing a headset!).
If you have recorded the entirety of the ballad at once, submit an MP3/MP4 file with this name as the format:
If you used the segmented guide above, use this format:

Hey, I just recently wrote a brass quintet and would love some feedback on it. This is 100% original. Thanks!
I have been looking every where for about 1 month and I still can't find one. The only one I could find was a Bb Trumpet version and I have no clue if I can just transpose it into French Horn sheet music. If anyone knows if there is one and if they have a link I will be grateful if you send it to me. Thank You.
Last Monday we did another #MusescoreMonday release.
This time a drum feature used in a Marchingband show, that we also did the choreography for.
Check it out:
We'd love to hear what you think of it.
This is my own creation. 100% original. This is my take on a DCI show, but a high school show length. I'm not the best at writing frontline so you'll have to forgive me on that all you frontline musicians. Please let me know what you think of it! :) I'd greatly appreciate the feedback!
Hello. I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user. I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42. @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun. I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra. I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles. Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events. Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for a while. But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium. I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.
This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition? Thanks in advance.
Hello and Welcome! I would like to see how long you people have been playing the horn. There are not many horn players in my city, so I would like to find others who play the horn(Not in person, online! :) ).
So I will start.
I'm a beginner. I started playing a month ago. I play the violin, viola, mandolin, clarinet, and horn.
On my account I have just added a brass fanfare that I also intend to add to my RCM portfolio.
Could I trouble you lot to have a look please?

(P.S. check out my pieces A Joyful Noise and Happy Days)

Hey brass players, I'm just trying to get my name out there, so go check out Darth Mauldin on youtube, link here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyt1_lzcezGK3RXhIPZyR9Q
Please leave a post in this discussion for any kind of feedback.
I mostly play the tbone, baritone, and trumpet and I'm getting braces soon. Does it affect playing?
Right, so I'm just starting off on trombone. I've never played a brass instrument before this, just woodwinds and strings.
