Interesting Quartet Pieces

Hello!
I am an eighth grade viola player. ME and 6 other people are looking for a song to play at GMEA Solo and Ensemble this year.

If you can help me, the song:
-Must have 1st and 2nd violins, Viola, Cello, and Double Bass Parts.
-Cannot be an arrangement of a modern tune.

Are there any other middle school students who can give us a fairly simple song to learn and master, hopefully earning us a high rating.

(We play fairly well, so don't be afraid to give us something challenging. :)


THANK YOU!!!

The ultimate musescore songbook

I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!

Thanks in advance!

Star Wars Competition

in Brass

Hello everyone, I am tehdude15, and I will be assuming authority of the Brass group until Januslj gets back from hiding in the woods (metaphorically). This group is just a division of The Master Composers/Arrangers:
(http://musescore.com/groups/the-master-composers)

I am going to host a contest. The winner of this contest moves up to the finalist round hosted in The Master Composers/Arrangers group. Here are the rules:

1- Submit your best Star Wars arrangement.

2- It can be any song from any Star Wars movies, arranged by you without help from someone else.

3- Your score has to be at least 20 seconds long (no limit to how long it can be).

4-Voting will open 12am (Pacific Time), May 15, 2012.

5-Voting will close on 7pm (Pacific Time), May 18, 2012.

6-You cannot vote on your own composition FOR WHATEVER REASON.

7-Tell me your entry as soon as possible.

8-Do not enter a composition with impossible parts.

9-Just because this is a Brass group, it doesn't mean your entry piece has to be all brass. It could be a Bagpipe Quartet for all I care.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Email your MuseScore name and the name of your entry piece, with correct capitalization, to cgd97@yahoo.com
Join The Master Composers/Arrangers if you want to vote in the finalist round.
I am lenient on rule 8.

Tuba, which one? Which key?

in Brass

I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.

Lyric submission/offering/suggestion....

in Lyrics

They all check me out when I'm riding on the escalator.
The women check me out.
The men check me out.
They all want to know what it's all about.
They all check me out when I'm riding on the escalator.

I've got hostility.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah oh yeah.
I've got hostility.
Late in the evening, when your day is through,
You're sound asleep, everything is alright.
But I'm wide awake, just thinkin' 'bout you
Makes me grind my teeth in the middle of the night.
I grind my teeth, I grind my teeth, I grind my teeth in the middle of the night.
I've got hostility.

Also, you can get ideas from the Letterman show, like..

Goin' down that road, I know I won't be turnin' back.
Gotta dig a new basement. Gotta get contractors.
Electricians.
I won't be turnin' back.

Feel free all to chop/mangle/rebuild/apply.
