How many of you are marching tomorrow for Memorial Day? I don’t expect many responses cus it’s really late here, but I’d like to know. What are you playing? Our marching band *was* going to play National Emblem as we marched, but we cancelled the parade because of rain, so we’re just playing the National Anthem and Stars and Stripes Forever at the ceremony.
(Also, I apologize if my activity is annoying to any of you. I’m excited to talk with people who are as enthusiastic about music and saxophones as I am.)
For those who don’t know Polyrhythm is the simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms e.g. triplets at the same time as duplets
The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.
The options are:
Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone
Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone
Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone
Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P
For me I can’t wait to be done my piano sonata but I also am excited to compose a concerto for piano and orchestra!
Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)
So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?
Edit: The palm keys are also really loose on the tone holes, so that won't help. I was thinking of messing with the leaf springs, but I'm no professional. (Finally, that 4th grade science project on levers will help me)
Hello! I am Mark Catahan and I arranged a piece from Francisco Tarrega which was Gran Vals. It is originally a guitar piece but I transcribed and arranged it for a string quartet. With my arrangement, something is bugging me about how I arranged it and I do not know what it is. So I kinda need some help on figuring out what needs to improve in the arrangement. Thanks!

I was thinking of getting a new mouthpeice for bari sax and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I really want a jazz mouthpeice, preferbly metal.
So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.
Dear musescorers, if you have compositions that would be of interest to double bass players (including solo or chamber music), please consider joining the Contrabass players group and adding it there! For 7 years, it's been the only group specifically about the double bass/contrabass. You are also welcome to post a discussion. https://musescore.com/groups/contrabass-players
I am in need of an opinion on a piece I started written in the mindset for the youth players. The piece I am writing is called "A Brandenburg Waltz". Using the notes to the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and putting them into a waltz.
Any changes will certainly be pleased.
Hey I’m new here and I’m a 14 year old violinist that lives in the state of CT and that is part of the Connecticut orchestra for the New England region, I’ll be willing to help anyone out on pieces of music that is being composed. If you wanna talk then txt me anytime.
Comments are welcomed :D
A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
