So I have been playing alto for almost two years and I started on the bari sax and I'm pretty good. But all my band music was thrown out for my alto sax(didn't play bari in my band) and I'm looking for songs to play and learn. I want to get better at Bari for the upcoming school year since thats why I'm playing the bari over the summer. Thanks! Hard, easy and in between songs are just fine :)
It would be nice to see organ voicings/stop settings on more scores. If using GrandOrgue or Hauptwerk, the organ selected and its stops would be interesting.
As someone just starting my journey with pipe organs, it would be helpful to hear how others select which stops are used in absence of marked directions from the composer or when the recommended stop is not available.
I have been trying to get better at Vibrato on my alto saxophone. I have tried both embouchure and diaphragm vibrato. Which one is better?
Thanks in advance
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.
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
Hello all. Try as I might, I can't find a transcription for Leo P's solo of "get busy". Might anyone have an idea where to find it?
Thank you for any input!
I realize Barry Harris is a pianist, but check out the first several bars and you will see a sax transcription over the chords to Giant Steps
I reached the 50 followers milestone. Now just to finish my 50 follower special composition. I can't promise when it will be done but right now I'm halfway through it.
Did any of y'all create horrible pieces of music the first time you joined Musescore?
Hey all, i'm trying hard but can't find any sheets music of Ehrling music. Does anyone know where i could find it ? "Ocean champagne" or "Dance with me" would be the bests ! Thx in advance !
Hi what's up guys. Please check my first arrangement https://musescore.com/user/28650932/scores/5621198
Tell me what do you think about it and give me some advices
I have auditions coming up and I need a few songs that I can look into to start playing. Sophisticated Lady is the current piece I'm playing, but I'm curious as to what other classic jazz songs feature the bari sax.
Here is the alphabetical list of jazz standards lead sheets that are already done and available in our group. Titles that have been contributed by two or more different group members have additional links to the alternate versions of the leadsheets (noted with "alt chart").

If you don't know already, I am now almost at 50 followers. Currently I have 39 followers so just 11 more and I will have reached the 50 follower mark. I had maybe like 4 followers 2 years ago. So clearly, I'm doing something right. My most recent score called The Storm just brought me 2 more followers. I suppose they followed me hoping to someday see the entire suite that I plan on The Storm being a part of. That suite I call Weather Music. Maybe I should compose another part of the suite for that 50 followers mark, upload it when I reach 50 followers, and then whenever I have finished the suite, upload it in its entirety.
If you want to listen to what I have so far of The Storm, here it is:
It just so happens that I have been getting rain for 3 days straight here in Ohio.
Update 1: 6/18/2019
Oh my goodness, 4 followers in a single day. That is a record for me, I am now at 43 followers. I don't know if the follower milestone or finishing the composition will come first. If the follower count does come first, that's fine. I'm not pushing myself to finish the 50 follower composition.
Update 2: 6/19/2019
Wow, 5 followers in 1 day. I don't think I will finish my 50 follower composition before I reach 50 followers. Often my composition process is slow, so don't be surprised if a week has passed and I still haven't finished the composition yet. I will get it done when I get it done. I emphasize quality over quantity with my compositions.
Update 3: 6/24/2019
I'm just 1 away from reaching the 50 followers mark. As for the composition, I'm about halfway through composing it.
As per request, here is the Wikifonia.org archive. There are over 6,500 leadsheets here that need liberating! This has been approved by the MuseScore team, and post your scores here when ready!
Hi, there. I would like for the members of this group to check out two arrangements I made. I hope you like them.
I know I do.
I will update this weekly
Group is created today! Woohoo! *confetti and stuff falls from sky*
Eek! I forgot to do this yesterday. The group is already dying, so uhh… :o
@Jaybird1 is one of the first truly active members, I told him I would give him a shoutout here, so here you go :P
I haven't updated this in a while, this group is blowing up now...
Holy cow, this group is blowing up. 8 members in 4 days, wow...
Hmm...Starting to die again...
Welp...I was wrong...
I was very wrong, this group is really blowing up, welp
So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.
Okay then, I don't know what to say
Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)
So this group is now closing in on 100 members, but we need more discussions!
Wow, 5 more members till 100!
Woohoo! 100 Members!
This group is starting to die
Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.
I'm just going to leave this group alone for a while, only update this discussion every once in a while.
Looking for some good pieces to play over the summer, Any Suggestions?
