GuitarTuna

This is a nice app. I use it to tune my guitar. It’s very helpful as accurate. This app also has options to tune other instruments like a violin. And for I think $10, you can get these little fun guitar chord related games, that help teach you the guitar.

Overall, great app. And I highly recommend it.

How do I write an arpeggio spanning several staves (piano)?

Question is in the subject, really. Unless my English fails me _again_ and those are not staves I'm talking about.

Anyway, I have a series of 5 notes, three of which are in the bass clef and the two others in the treble clef; and they are meant to be played as an arpeggio.

I have input the scores separately on both staves, at the same beat, but I do not see how I can make the arpeggio extend from the bass clef to the treble clef, or the reverse. I have tried shortcuts which I thought were obvious (for instance, selecting the arpeggio sign and pressing Ctrl plus up or down arrow) but no luck.

How do I do this?

I need music for a home play we're doing

So me and my friends were bored and decided to make a play about the Boxcar Children. It's supposed to be a musical, except we only have two songs and a poorly written overture (which is my fault)
If you could be so kind as to whip up a couple of songs (it doesn't matter whether it's instrumental or has lyrics, as long as it goes with the story, we'd appreciate it) We are just performing this for fun, so only our parents will see it, and we're just two families, so...yeah. You'll still receive all credit for the song.
Here's the summary if you haven't read it yet:

(Also, I can't call this off, or my sister will get a little mad and my friends will be disappointed after all they've done :P)
Thanks!~ Alyanna

Violin vs Stroh violin

Violin vs Stroh violin?
Which is better?

The Violin with the Horn or Stroh Violin is a specific instrument , although invented by the Englishman Augustus Stroh. It can be said that Stroh Violin represents Bihor County. The biggest musicians on the Crişului Repede valley are the beloved Căbuţă Gheorghe "Stângaciu" and Mitică Negrean, who are part of the professional orchestra "Crişana". The bihorian folklore is represented by the "Crişana" Artistic Professional Ensemble of the Oradea State Philharmonic in tours abroad and in the country, which was founded in 1998 on the structure of Crişana Orchestra, a professional orchestra with a tradition of more than 50 years. From the very beginning, the orchestra had the purpose of processing the popular song. At present the "Crişana" Professional ensemble is among the first folk ensembles in the country. The soloists of the ensemble are Cornel Borza, Leontin Ciucur, Luminiţa Tomuţă, Viorica Bradea, Cornelia Covaciu, Voichiţa Mihoc, Felicia Costin and Florinul Bihorului:Florica Duma, Florica Ungur, Florica Zaha,Florica Bradu and the most famous instrumentalists are Gheorghe Rada, Stângaciu, Mitică Negrean, Adi Miclăuş, Liviu Butiu and Petre Frasin.
Stroh violin
It is not known for sure that the violin violin used by Bihor tars was the same as that created by John Matthias Augustus Stroh (1899-1949). At a closer look there are important differences. The Bihor coroner's violin is much softer than those created by Stroh. Of course, it's original, because the violin in the picture above is an unfinished copy. Those who have had the opportunity to see the Bihor tool closely can easily notice differences. Unfortunately, we are not known craftsmen of the violin. Stroh violin is likely to be used in Transylvania before 1900. According to some reports, the game came to the village musicians with "van, taragoata (taragot not clarinet) and Stroh violin (or fiddle as it is called in the Apuseni Mountains) ". Another local instrument name: "higheghe with tolcer" (higheghe = violin, tolcer = funnel) In Central and Western Europe, the violin was not successful, because it was used on classical music scores (Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, etc.), not forgetting that this instrument produces tonalities specific to lute music, tones which is very good compared to the established violin. It is interesting to note that in Bihor the viticulture with the goat does not have the same success in the listeners. The European studies on the distribution of musical instruments and their tradition record the presence of the violin with the goarna only in the eastern part of Hungary, on most of the border with Romania, and not in Romania, from where they actually took over the Gypsy tarafs.

Copyright infringement concern

There has been some concern about copyright infringement here lately and I thought of my song cycle which I recently embellished with photos of the poet (Emily Dickinson) that were taken in the 1860s. One such - https://musescore.com/user/29586932/scores/5611797 
I now fear the possibility that someone "owns" these. Could this be possible?
If so, that is a problem. I recently tried to get permission from  publisher to use words from an early 20th century poet and I never received a reply in 5 weeks. I would not even know how to find out who would have rights to these old photos, let alone expect a reply. 
Do you have any knowledge of this?

Importantly, I would like to know if there is a problem, will I be forewarned or is my music just yanked out like an old molar?

Plz help!

I just started playing alto sax last week for a summer program and I think all in all it’s an easy instrument to start off on (maybe because I have been playing clarinet for 3 years). But I am still struggling with holding it. It’s very heavy and sometimes my thumb is swollen from holding it. My friend who has been playing alto sax for 4 years says my sax is bigger than hers. I’m sure its alto because my music teacher gave it to me and I can’t switch it out for a different one. Does anyone have any tips on how to hold the sax? Thxxx and I appreciate it- Flutinetist ^~^

Repeats broken on site

A week or two ago I asked about this. When I use the Nice Keys or Touhou soundfont and upload a score with that audio, when you listen through, repeats don't work. Here's some examples in my scores:

Please help! :(

My first real piece of music, please critique!

Hey guys!

I've been composing music for about a year now, but I've learned a ton about theory and composition in that time, and I've finally finished a piece of music that I can say I really understand. Unlike most of my other compositions in the past, which were mostly just random improvisations, every note in this piece was meticulously chosen to be there. Because of this, I'd really appreciate some critique.

Here's the link: https://musescore.com/user/3314891/scores/5542553

Enjoy!
