This is a theme I wrote for the Palancar Valley, a location in one of my favorite book series, Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle. If you are unfamiliar with the location, it is where the hero first lives, before setting off on his adventure (I also recommend you go and read the books!). This is a work in progress, there are supposed to be some cymbals and snares, but MuseScore wasn't playing them properly. I have ported this over from Sibelius as an xml file, so that could be where the problem lies. I hope you enjoy it, I plan to be writing quite a lot for this book series!
P.S. I hope I can get away with posting this in the Clarinet group. There's a nice duet with the flutes, so I'm using that as my excuse!
A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.
One says: "Hey you, the other day I gave a concert and had to play with someone, who had built a harp like you and me into a wooden box and knocked on it with felt hammers."

Check this piece out
Hello dear woodwinds,
There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:
So, I'm a senior at an arts high school (it's called TSA look it up), and I just got into composing music last year. This song is still in progress, not all the instruments are up yet (including the second clarinet), but I know I'm a hot mess express anyway so it's honestly fine. If you let me know how bad it is I won't throw shade.
Hello, I compose a impromptu in d minor. Please check it out and provide your comment.
can you give me some feedback on this piece..
Add suggestions of other themes you would like to see
Guys please help last Friday my wisdom teeth were remove making playing difficult and I don't want dry socket. Can you help me with playing techniques to start playing again.
(P.S. check out my pieces A Joyful Noise and Happy Days)
Thanks and please help any advice will be very and gratefully needed.
Hey brass players, I'm just trying to get my name out there, so go check out Darth Mauldin on youtube, link here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyt1_lzcezGK3RXhIPZyR9Q
Please leave a post in this discussion for any kind of feedback.
My mum wants me to play this music and it’s too hard and I need someone to make the music called “起风了”
I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...
It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.
(If I'm way to active, let me know)
As promised, albeit delayed, this is the second contest! I'm not calling the second "week" because I will extend the period to nearly two weeks because I will be away for a period of time, but nevertheless, the competition ensues. The contest is created as a personal quest to find challenging music (and still in the realms of playability) that is technically sound and/or emotionally charged, and also as a platform for virtuoso pianist/composers to show off their skill. Here are a few rules:
1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Fugue and/or Toccata
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. Leave the link in the comment below
6. It cannot be a transcription (obviously).
The deadline of the contest will be on the 22/12, 1400 hours (GMT)
The songs submitted must be as hard/equal in difficulty to the songs below:
Nightmare Scherzo (Piano Sonata no. 1 mov. 2) by Mason K. Ichida
Toccata or "Rush Hour", from Cityscape, movement 1, by kenneth.r.t.
SCORES RATED ABOVE 4.5:
ChrisHill - Etude no. 4 in F-Sharp Minor, "Inflexion"
Challenges of the "week" will be in the comment below, soon to be posted. I sincerely apologize for using my score as a challenge for the competition, however there seems to be a lack of hard original fugues that I think would be a good standard for the competition. I did comb through listening to a few pages worth of original fugues, and toccatas were even harder to find.
The winner of the previous week was ChrisHill, a hearty congratulations! For those who are able to obtain above 4.5 from me in this competition, his/her score will be posted as above for the next week. The score with the highest rating for the competition will win the competition!
Great emotional piece with some legendary oboe solos. Be sure to have mastered dynamic influence while going into notes, that's a key part in this song. Don't forget to breath, you'll need all the air possible for this one.
I mostly play the tbone, baritone, and trumpet and I'm getting braces soon. Does it affect playing?
The craziest people I've ever known are double reeds. Like thinking about the strangest things for no reason, even though you have no interest in them. Maybe it's the back pressure getting to my skull.
Will let you know if I get any aneurysms lol
To all those who play the flute, what exactly do we call ourselves? Like people who play the clarinet are clarinetists, people who play percussion are percussionists, but what are we? Flutists? Flautists? Floutisits? Flutation devices?
