What's your guy's favorite type of clarinet?
I'm having a moderate struggle to find some beginner and solo sheet music, there probably is a lot, and I'm just searching wrong, so I need some help!
Hi everyone! Now I am a new member of your group! I am a student in Redwood middle school in Saratoga, and I'm in Griffin band. Is there anyone same as me?
Has anyone else had this realization?
This is the final piece that would be heard as part of my Inheritance Cycle pieces of music, a series I am writing as if for a new series of Eragon films. This particular piece would be heard over the final credits, and incorporates a number of previously established themes, as well as the Ra'zac theme, which is a bit of a sneak-peek into what themes I'm working on next.

Also check out my MuseScore account to see Palancar Valley, which gets played in this as well
Hello! I've been playing clarinet for about 3 months now, but I have never quite been able to play in the upper register successfully. If any of you out there could give me some tips, it would be much appreciated!
Edit: Thank you all for your help!
i am working on a piano sonata
I am a clarinet player and honestly I'm interested to hear what other clarinetists favourite parts of music to play are. Personally, I quite enjoy slow and heavy emotional lines (Air for Band is one of my favourite pieces to play for this reason,,)
What are some of your favourite pieces to play?
How many of you play the flute?
Hi, my name is Noah (Z. Værum) and i am a composer/clarinetist and i come from Denmark, i've composed a litlle piece for 4 horns, so i hope you like it. If you want to buy it, the link is below ;)
I am seeking advice from ensemble players and/or anyone reasonably experienced with scoring for winds, especially if you have a background in chamber music.
I compose and arrange for piano, strings, and guitar, but I am hoping to expand my horizon and beginning to look into orchestration in general.
I own a grand flute and have a basic understanding of what it can do and how it will sound not as MIDI but in real life. What it can cut through, and what it will only ever-so-slightly color.
By extension albeit to a lesser extent I can claim the same for the piccolo.
However, I have zero experience writing for oboe, clarinet, or bassoon.
The following piece is my very first attempt at balancing all five woodwinds mentioned above, and not just against one another but against five string instruments as well.
Owing to complete inexperience, at first I tried to tackle this by thinking in terms of flute and string quartet, and treating the rest of the players as supporting cast. I have no idea if that's the wisest thing to do, but that's what I know. So it starts off tame and only gradually grows more confident.
The piece is tonal and requires no virtuosity from any of the players. I am not concerned with what's playable and what isn't. I am concerned with balance, texture, and color.
So if the individual parts are unremarkable that's a good thing. My focus is on making them come together to form a cohesive whole. Not on pushing the envelope, but on acquiring an understanding of the basics. There's no point in writing the next Rite of Spring if you can't even orchestrate two bars of a simple waltz.
In brief, I have no idea how any of this will sound on actual instruments, what to look out for, and what not to worry about.
So if something jumps out at you as an experienced ensemble player, by all means do let me know.
If nothing does, all the better.
The runtime is six minutes.
Thank you in advance.
My new 'fun' piece. Didn't take too long to write, I was kinda going for a piece that could accompany a light-hearted superhero.
Has an enjoyable clarinet line, I made sure to include that as the first soloist
So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...
I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem. I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound decent during competitions.
Should I extend it?
You may or may not know this but I am arranging the Pathetique Sonata for a symphony orchestra. I have gotten to the second Grave section and the notes reach the very lowest register of the bassoon. Before I get too deep into it, I need some advice about the bassoon, preferably from someone who plays the bassoon.
Can the bassoon play pianissimo in its lowest register? Because the last note of the Grave section that I would put in the bassoon part is a B natural below the bass staff. I know the bassoon can be very mellow sounding but can B natural below the bass staff be played pianissimo? If not, then I will just have that note played by the double basses and notate it up an octave from where it is in the piano score to get the desired pitch.
I need to find a name for my antique 1940s solid metal clarinet... my flute is named Felipe, and need a name that goes nicely with it.
Thanks for your help!
I am your group owner @IsaacBannon and i am happy that u don't want to tear out my throat! Pls feel free to do absolutely anything on this groupchat! *suicides*
Although, I'm not a sax player, they are TECHNICALLY woodwinds... So... In or not?
