Would anyone be interested in me arranging any pieces for them? I will do it for most ensembles and solos too. I am currently working on Blue Bells of Scotland for my Wind Symphony.

«Nous sommes des gourmands qui adorons notre nourriture. Il était donc important pour nous de bien manger. L'équipe de traiteurs de l'école était incroyable. Emily, la chef de l'école Abbots Hill, a même créé une version spéciale du pudding au chocolat pour nos amis végétaliens. Lorsque tout le monde est arrivé, nous avons servi du vin chaud et des noix grillées pour que tout le monde soit au chaud avant de se mettre au souper. Nous avions des plateaux de partage de fruits de mer pour commencer, un beau boeuf au ragoût de vin rouge avec des pommes de terre dauphinoises et un pouding au chocolat pour se régaler.
«Je me souviens d'avoir vu un mariage présenté sur un blog où ils avaient offert des couvertures à la place de faveurs et avaient vraiment adoré cette idée si impeccablement pincée! Je savais que je ne voulais pas de couvre-sièges et que je voulais être sûr que tout le monde serait assez chaud avec quelque chose qui pourrait être gardé longtemps. Sur eBay, nous avons trouvé un fournisseur qui vendait des tapis en laine recyclée et nous y sommes allés.
I'm trying to play Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart, and, as I am a mostly self taught pianist (I had a piano teacher two years ago, but then i went to a new school and learned clarinet because i wanted to be in band), I am having trouble with a few things that I am hoping someone can offer me guidance on
1- The left hand grace notes in arpeggios, can someone please tell me, how do i play those at that speed and correctly?
2- The right hand octaves. I am having a lot of difficulty with this, I try to play it and it makes my arm hurt while doing it, so i tried to relax a little and ended up completely missing the notes
Recently, Musescore.com users have noticed an increase in the number of scores blocked on the website. This is due to the requests of the copyright holders who own and control the rights to these songs. We fully understand your frustration and inconvenience, and we would like to tell you a few words about our attitude towards the situation and what we are doing to fix it.
Back in 2017, when Ultimate Guitar acquired Musescore, it was questionable whether Musescore was going to be allowed to continue its operations. Copyright holders, music trade associations and governments were aggressively working to shut down the website entirely.
However, because Ultimate Guitar had decades of experience in solving such problems and strong working relationships with right holders, it was confident that it could solve this problem. Ultimate Guitar created the concept of licensing tabs and felt that it could also solve the problem of licensing sheet music. Twenty years ago, right holders and governments were able to shut down almost every other guitar tab website, but Ultimate Guitar and its founder were able to accomplish something that was impossible - to make thousands of deals with songwriters and publishers to legalize Ultimate Guitar. Thanks to Ultimate Guitar, the guitar tablature market has become fully digital with every subsequent website following the model created by Ultimate Guitar.
After Ultimate Guitar acquired Musescore, we faced the necessity to once again negotiate license agreements with songwriters and music publishers. For the right holders, the market of scores is even more complex than the market of guitar tabs; there are many players who make money on score sales and are not ready to distribute them in an ad-supported model.
The current sheet music market has a simple model: either sell scores by the piece or grant access by subscription. This is why ad-supported access to scores often causes misunderstanding and rejection from the copyright owners. It’s just too innovative for the current market.
There are quite a lot of right holders and all of them have different attitudes towards the licensing of these rights. In some cases, it causes certain difficulties. Example: at this point, we have no right to publish scores related to certain popular films and some songs by a few major rock stars. There is one main reason for this, songwriters and publishers expect to be fairly paid for their songs, rewarded economically. Musescore must respect their position.
Right now we are actively negotiating with right holders, and we have made great progress. We have already reached agreements with almost 1500 music publishers, including almost all of the major music publishers, and every day we are working on licensing more content.
The biggest obstacle we have faced so far is our goal to keep the content free for download. We tried to find various solutions to this problem, but unfortunately, all options related to the free distribution of content are problematic for the copyright holders and artists. It’s the main reason for scores to get blocked.
This is why from now on the option to download scores in any format is no longer free.
We, as a company, strongly promote and support the open digital world and the free distribution of information. But we also respect the right of the artists for their work and livelihood. Without songwriters and artists, there is no music.
Why do we have to take this step? First of all, it will bring us closer to the model to which the current market is accustomed. At the same time, we will still have very flexible conditions for working with content. For example, the fact that we are the only ones who give access to digital files, which was and still is our most popular "feature".
Among other things, this step will reduce the amount of plagiarism and unfair downloads of your scores on the website.
We will continue to work with the right holders, and try to achieve more favorable license terms and hope that the current state of things will not be final.
This step will allow us to speed up the negotiation process and keep your work safe. We also hope to unblock the scores that have been blocked from the website earlier.
Author's original works and compositions from Public Domain
At the moment, unfortunately, we do not have a trustworthy tool to distinguish songs under copyright from songs available for distribution. It's a big problem we're working on. The value of our product lies in such scores and the authors of this content are very important for us. The current situation promises to be a major boost for development. We made a lot of effort recently to improve the catalog/listing of the website. We will now focus on working with independent authors and users who work with Public Domain music. We will release updates in the near future that will allow to open original scores to everyone.
We ask you to be patient with this process. Most likely we will need a lot of help from the community in order to be able to move forward and contribute to the free distribution of digital music in every way possible.
Hi folks. I'm a 70 year old who foolishly never bothered to learn keyboard from my Juilliard Candidate concert pianist/french hornist dad and am now trying to learn from scratch on my own.
So I wonder if someone here might be familiar with a song I heard, which I would love to find sheet music for. I heard it once and tapped out as much of the melody as I could remember.
It's uploaded here to Musescore at:
Thank you deeply to anyone who might know this piece. It's probably pretty old, because, you know, I'm pretty old ;-)
I am hosting a competition for any classical composer.
Send me a message containing a link with your piece and in about a Month I will send everybody there score in a message.
Best of luck.
looking for some Russian piano music any one know any?
My first Hymn Medley... Hymn Medley 2 coming soon!
I'm transcribing a piece for jazz trio, but I have run across a slight problem. The piece is in swing time, with a 67% eighth note ratio. If I add an acciaccatura (or any other grace note that comes before the beat, as far as I can tell) onto an off-beat note, the grace note is played far too early. It's almost as if it's playing a grace note for the straight eighth, rather than the swing eighth. The grace note works fine if it's on the on-beat. Can anyone give me some advice for how to fix this?
I have reported this issue half year ago and there is still no progress...
please try to open this link on iphone (your blog):
Are you going to fix it?
Here is link to original discussion:
Thanks for feedback
I want to know that can I import XML file into the MuseScore.
