I am making an upright bass do you have any useful info?
If I may, I would like to suggest a contest: Find the worst soundfont you can (MuseScore 1 is acceptable if you don't want to download a new one - just use oboe, accordion, or another really bad-sounding instrument soundfont), then write a short song for it and see if you can make it sound good! It can be for any instrument.
The idea is credit of Benjamin Basford (https://musescore.com/basfordmedia - discussion here: https://musescore.com/basfordmedia/moriartys-grip#comment-1049596). The deadline is August 9th, so you have a full month to do it. The judges (me and whoever else would like to be one) can enter but may not judge themselves.
So at my high school, we have our own orchestra (and band, but Orchestra's better). We only have Violin, Viola, and Cello. So when people talk about Violins and Cellos I simply say: "Violins are too high, Cellos are too low, and Violas are the cream of the Oreo." What's usually the favorite part of the Oreo? The cream! Do you agree?
I know how to do 3rd position and I am now starting to use the 2nd one, but I don´t the 30% of the notes well. Do you know any trick that will help me learning the position relatively fast?.
I made this arr. because some of my friends that played the in the jazz band with me are coming over to play with me. I would like some constructive criticism to help improve my MuseScore skills . Take this link

Hi! I'm excited to see all these viola players gathered in one group. It's so hard to find a good spot like this because violas are so underrated. Anyways, I'm an aspiring viola player who needs a LOT of practice, and I was wondering if any of the more experienced players could recommend some music that might be good for someone playing at a 6th-8th grade level. I've only been playing for 3 years, so I think that would be a good area for me. Thanks!
Can I get some critique on my arrangement of Senorita by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello? Thanks guys!
This music music has a sense of tragedy with romanticism and a bit of modernism accents.
Of course you will hear one of the most popular classical music progressions (baroque epochs progressions of fifth) but i wanted to do my own version of that progression. Maybe you can relate my piece with someone others... leave your comment i would like to know what others think...
I'm kinda drawing a blank as far as melodies go and I want to make a longer piece with fast and slow parts. I have almost no direction as of yet but would love it if someone could help make a melody, I will credit you for your work!
In advance, Thanks!
A lot of cool sax players out there, but what is your favorite one and why? What is the particular thing that makes it special for you? what distinguishes him from others?
I completed an arrangement of a piece by Handel with a preferable custom audio (because the other one is too echo-ish and too "mush" in sound), the piece I arranged is a movement from Royal Fireworks named "La Rejouissance". The piece is for young string players. Please give me positive feedback, all is welcomed!
