I really like the tenor saxophone+horn in F combination.
I have to say bass. In an orchestra with two of each woodwind, adding a desk of bass saxophones has great results. With the saxophones playing the bass part, the bassoons are free to play the tenor part. You could also use tenor or baritone saxophones to play the tenor and the bassoons play bass but I prefer to use the bassoons as tenors.
I can't find good song pieces especially new songs.
I'm a highschool sophomore tenor sax and i'm wondering if you guys have any tips regarding the altissimo range, that ridiculously high set of notes after high F#. i would like to know if there are any finger charts or tips to help me play in that range. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
I am going to start Tenor sax for marching band cause I dont want to just stick with brass. I really want to learn the song. it is like maybe 20 seconds, but on loop
Dear all fellow,
I have a pearl flute and the little G key nut keeps getting loose and making a leak . I have screwed it back but it keeps popping back up after a few plays . Any idea how to fix this? Many thanks
I have been in my school band for 2 years. I went from elementary to middle school. We started in 6th grade and are now in 7th and I am a tenor sax. I currently gave problems with coming from over the break to some of the lower notes like F, F#, E, D, et cetera. If anyone has suggestions, please post some.
New to the alto sax and i have a quick question, when i go to play i have about one or two seconds of just air and then the sound comes out fine - is this caused by my breathing, embouchure or reed? I have no idea? I just want a clean sound to come out the moment I begin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)
As per request, here is the Wikifonia.org archive. There are over 6,500 leadsheets here that need liberating! This has been approved by the MuseScore team, and post your scores here when ready!

Hi guys I am a intermediate flute player, please give some seggestions for sight reading peices! Thanks!
Hey guys! This is a new ensemble I created a few days ago and we have a serious woodwind deficit as of now... we have three total woodwind players, compared to 7 violins and 14 synths.
I've posted this in a few other MuseScore groups in hopes of attracting a bit more attention to it, and it's worked so far! Here's the rest of the original post.
I'm creating an online orchestra dedicated to performing the works of young composers and putting the videos on YouTube. In the process, composers will get feedback from performers, performers will get more experience playing in different settings, and both will form connections that will be extremely useful (hopefully) in the music industry long-term! It's also a great chance for publicity.
Currently, I'm looking for performers, composers, and editors alike willing to help make this happen.
If you want to join, here's a link to a Discord server dedicated to making this happen!
In anticipation of a few questions, here's an FAQ.
How will you coordinate this?
Our current plan is to have one major piece every two months. Pieces will be member-submitted and member-selected. Parts, an MP3 of the piece being performed by synth instruments, and a metronome MP3 will be sent out. Members will have these two months to work up their part(s) and record themselves playing in time with the metronome that was sent. All members will submit their parts to an official email for the orchestra, which will be made at a later date. Editors will then take over and edit the tracks together.
It will then be posted to an official YCOO YouTube channel with credits to the composer and performers in the description.
What instruments can join?
Currently, standard orchestra and wind ensemble instruments. Non-standard instruments may be accepted, but should not expect a part in every major piece. Right now, we especially need woodwinds, specifically on flute/picc, saxophone, clarinet, and bassoon. We'd also love more low strings, like string bass and cello. But we won't turn you away if you already play an instrument we have lots of. The more, the merrier!
What kind of music will be played?
Orchestral music, wind ensemble music, chamber music, solos. We currently plan to only do original music by young composers but may be open to doing covers once the group has been established.
Chamber music and solos? How will that work?
While the major projects will happen every other month, members will be allowed to arrange small ensembles. Chamber ensembles and solos will be entirely member-run: members will choose a piece, form a small ensemble, send out parts on their own, come up with their own deadlines, and edit the audio and video on their own. Only when the product is complete will it be sent up to us admins to publish it on the YouTube channel.
Is there an audition required?
No. However, if you submit a track of low quality, it may not be used. (Low quality can be defined as: badly out of tune, very bad audio quality, not with the metronome, or played with a bunch of mistakes.)
Video? Will we have to submit videos of ourselves?
No. Submitting videos of yourself playing is entirely optional.
Do you have to play in every major piece?
Nope. We won't kick you out for inactivity.
If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer! In case you don't want to scroll back up, here's that link again.
Here's a link if you're interested but can't join the Discord so we can still get your information.
here is one of my works
please give me your thoughts.
