If you can't tell a bamboo flute from a Saxonette, you're just as intelligent as Google Image Search.
A cello is taken to hospital. The doctor examines it and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Cello: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Cello: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."
Any cello players hmu
This is a short arrangement of the beautiful hymn "Abide with Me" for string quartet. Hope you enjoy!
I made a medley with 3 Imagine dragons songs, SO FAR, I will be updating this piece frequently adding new songs to it every week. Please check it out, fave it, and follow me so you don't miss anything, thanks!!!
I'm new here and still not very good with the software, but I saw a discussion about the lack of scores for cello in the musescore community, so here's one of my own adaptations as an exemple:
All you have to do is change any instrument in any sheet you'd like for cello, make sure the clef is right, select that instrument (line) from the begining to the end of the sheet and adjust all the notes at once clicking up and/or low on your keyboard. When you are satisfied with the notes (I like to play it lower, darker, whenever possible), you are set.
You can also change all the other instruments in a symphony (select the instrument line + up/down until you have it harmonized with the cello part) or convert a whole symphony for a cello orchestra.
I thought this post could be useful for newcomers. If this is a repeatitive subject, please moderate and delete. :)
Would anyone happen to have any viola and bass duet pieces? Me and my friend are looking for something that is beginner-intermediate*, and the bass part does have something more than quarter notes. I'll also be okay with a Viola/Cello part, as long as it doesnt go below a low E. Thanks!
*We've been playing for about six months, and the hardest we've done is doing Moana songs (like 4 songs in one score). I'm sure we could also figure out a intermediate piece too.
I need two motifs for two cats one is mischievous and the other is curious.
I am doing a string quartet in G major the time signature is 4/4.
Each motifs needs to start and end on G/B/D and be no longer than a bar long.
Any suggestions please
Recommenations for a Grade 4+ Alto Saxophone Solo (or accompanied by piano).
I have my solo and ensemble in a month, and Im gonna attempt to play fantasia by claude t smith. Is it humanly possible to prepare the piece in this time?
Transcription to C-instruments
I own the partiture of 'Sax in the City of Alain Crepin' inclusive all parts and the altsaxophone solo for saxophone-orchester (Es and Bes instruments). I want to play the altsaxophone-solo with my accordeon-ensemble (all C-instruments). How can I transcript all the music to C-instruments (exclusive the Alt-saxophone solo)? Can someone help me?
This is my first attempt on string quartet! I will be glad if you can give me some feedback!
So I only have a few measures of a first movement but I hope to expand this into a full 4 movement string quartet. Thing is, I find it hard to get the combination of being in sonata form and still being interesting when it gets past duets into trios and quartets. I know it should be easier because I have more freedom with a string quartet than with a piano sonata but no, I have always found piano sonatas easier to compose.
Here is my first draft. You can see that I go from a Tutti to the cello playing solo which really brings out the warm sound of the cello. I plan on having the other instruments come back one by one until I reach Tutti again. So here is the link:
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!
i wanna arrange a music sheet for a single track but i can't do this i wanna help me please...
I'm going to be picking out a duet for me and a fellow Cello member in my Orchestra, and I was wondering if anyone had any good pieces to use.
Below are song titles from a "transcription plan" that was being pursued by this group in 2017-2018. The idea was to take the top 100 jazz standards appearing on the jazzstandards.com list and provide lead sheets. The jazzstandards.com list was compiled statistically, and is ordered by frequency of recording (see the site for more details).
As of this writing, lead sheets for about 2/3 of the top 100 songs on the Jazzstandards.com list have been submitted to the group. (The full jazzstandards.com list includes 1,000 tunes, in case you were wondering.) At the bottom of this message are the titles that have not been done.
You are welcome to work on the remaining titles, or any other titles considered to be jazz standards (or popular song standards from the classic jazz/swing era--roughly 1910 to 1960). If your song isn't one of the 1,000 songs on the full jazzstandards.com list, it's probably not what most musicians and jazz fans would consider a jazz standard. That doesn't mean it's not a great tune, but in most cases it means the tune is not widely performed. (Perhaps we need a Musescore group dedicated to overlooked and under-appreciated jazz tunes and traditional popular songs.) We will try to be as inclusive as possible when adding submissions to the group, while still keeping the focus on tunes that you might hear played and sung in jam sessions or on gigs by relatively mainstream jazz performers.
You are also welcome to submit improved versions of any songs that have already been done for the group. Perhaps a song previously submitted is missing lyrics, or missing the introductory verse, or has chord changes that are not widely used by musicians in performance. So far, the group has not been flooded by multiple versions of any given song--if we were to get, say, 10 charts for "I Got Rhythm," we might need to pick the best 2 or 3 for the main listing, but currently that's not an issue.
Note that if you are starting a new chart, you may save yourself some time by working with an existing "Wikifonia Archive" chart and adding your own corrections, improved formatting, and missing sections / lyrics as needed. See the following discussion for more details: https://musescore.com/groups/jazz-standards-leadsheets/discuss/5019538
To add a score to the group's collection, open the score in Musescore.com or find it in your account's list of scores, click the "three dots" action icon at the top right, and then choose type in "Jazz Standards Lead Sheets" to search for and choose this group. You can then leave a comment here with the song title and the URL for the link to let us know you've added a new score. If your chart has notable features or corrections, add a note about it when you post, and consider adding the details to the comments on the score page as well.
