I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)
Hey I'm new to songwriting and This is a song i've started called "Too Much Anxiety" It's not complete but if you could give suggestions on it that would be great! Thanks!!!!
Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?
Thanks for any feedback!
Help me out! I composed a thing, but don't know how good it may sound, so please listen to it and give me a comment, that will change me positively. I will be waiting for your comments.....
Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!
This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.
If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!
I am looking for a good a capella version of "Can't Close My Eyes" (Narnia end credits)
I'm glad to find such a large group of my people! So now an actual discussion question. I am trying to play this piece here ----> https://musescore.com/user/5473921/scores/2030666 and measure 27 etc. is killing me! I can move my fingers fast enough, but I cant move my air fast enough. Any tips?
Hello all! I've never posted in here before but was wondering if there was a way to request an arrangement. I'm looking for Home Free's version of O Holy Night for my a cappella group. Can someone help direct me to where I can request that? Or if I can EVEN request that. I don't really know. I'm not too familiar with the format here. Thank you in advance.
Hey, I know that this is for horn players (which I am), but are there any mellophone players here? And if there is, any advice because I really want to expand my range. My mello is in the key of b-flat.
Here is my arrangement for brass quintet of Attila ouverture by Giuseppe Verdi
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.
I was thinking about trying to get money to buy a new, professional horn, and I was wondering what kind of horns are the best. I know that the Berlin Phil plays on Alexander 103s, and they always seem to get good reviews, so I would definitely look at those, but I also know that there are other fantastic instruments and the Alexander might not be the best fit for me. Right now I play a Holton H179, and it works quite well for me, but I have college auditions next year and then college itself, and I think that a better horn would be beneficial.
I was looking online at alexander 103s, just for fun, and I saw that there are several different metals that they use. Each has its pros and cons, but I couldn't find which most people prefer.
If it helps at all, I prefer playing high horn (1st or 3rd).
I play 14 how many in total do all of you play?
Who here loves the French Horn but absolutely hate the spit getting into your horn and struggling to get it out?
Hello there! I was wondering about what everyone's range was. I am so self conscious that I have a tiny range. I also find that for big concerts where we play 10-12 pieces I can barely hit high notes at the end. I was looking for tips on how to expand range and build better endurance. Anything will help!
I've been charting out scores on Muescore for several months now, and i have noticed that the horns are so dang quiet! You can never here them, as apposed to how the actually sound in other sound founts. It can be very frustrating, because i need horns to be loud on parts where they are supposed to be and you can barely here them!
