How many of you play the piano?
Is there any fun BSA tunes I should do?
This seems like the place to ask beginner level questions so please may I?
About me; You will have heard my story many times over - I took some lessons years ago and recently found myself wanting to get back in. I was being tutored back then and although I took some lessons over some years I don't think i ever got out of the gate really. I have next to no skill and zero confidence but i want that to change. At this point I have very basic reading skills, given a simple enough piece and enough time to study it and practice I can get a melody and baseline going.
So anyway, with a renewed gusto and a determined mindset that this time i will self study, i found myself here looking for music to play. Beatles, that's a good place to start right? simple, easy and everyone knows the tunes.
Penny lane, that's a goodun I say to myself and then BOOM i hit my first snag.
second measure, the first notes in bass line require a G in two octaves, the higher G remains held while the lower notes descend further. How is this played? the stretch is impossible or am i reading it wrong?
thank you for humouring my idiocy.
I just finished my first original composition please check it out!
Sorry to you who will receive this discussion multiple times lol I gotta get the word out somehow
My friend and I have a Youtube channel and at 100 subs we promised we would start work on a long term project which is a film we call Karate Steve II: The Duke of Overkill. Our channel is comedy so that is what our movie will be. We have a synopsis done and the first couple minutes worth of script. I think it would be fun to have an original theme over some royalty free music off the internet.
Here's the basic idea for the film:
Karate Steve has forgotten who he is due to the script for Karate Steve I being misplaced and his mission is to locate the script before the evil Duke of Overkill finds it. He works with Director Mister President of the S.E.A.E.Y.E.A.Y (pronounced C.I.A) to find it.
The idea for the music would be a 70s disco spy thriller. We need a theme that would be able to be placed throughout the film as a motif of the character and his fight against the sinister organization F.A.R.T (the Foundation Association of Redundant Troublemakers.)
If this sounds stupid that's because it is. Were aiming to film and edit this summer and the film should be posted by the end of August or early September.
Here's the link to the video we introduced the character in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6MoR7UwQLU
Skip to 1:00 into the video to see the fake trailer we made for the movie before we knew we were gonna make the movie.

Short piano piece; feedback of any kind would be very nice! :D
Hello all, I'm looking to get my own work out there and get lots and lots of feedback, if you'd be so kind as to take a look at my own work I'd greatly appreciate it.
I only have one piece as of yet and it's still in work sort of, but it's a very beginner sort of thing so expect the worst lol.

I'm always looking for hymns arranged for the flute and piano. Anyone else?
It can be an epic death, surviving a long ragdoll, killing a bokoblin the same time it killed you... literally anything. :)
I have long realised that I have absolutely no patience at all in composing a full piece....and so, I have decided to give a shot at background music....but even so, it's still pretty damn short. I'm mostly worried about bar 8 and 9, whether or not the transfer is smooth enough.
That and to boost popularity :)
What book series do you use with your students?
I started work on my attempt at a contemporary trombone solo and right now the place holder name is Sonata because it is a Sonata but I want a cool name for it. If you have any ideas let me know. Thanks.
How do you motivate your students?
Mainly, what do you do to encourage them to practice and progress?
I'd love to learn any ideas or tips regarding this. :D
A room for games and anything fun...
