can someone give me tips on composing classically in the likes of Mozart, Dvorak, Beethoven etc.
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.
I am currently looking for anyone who would be interested in having some drumline cadences written for their group/band. I have a fair amount of experience in writing for drumline and am looking for ways to further improve and refine my skills.
If anyone is interested let me know. I am willing to accommodate particular needs/requests and prepared to meet any possible deadlines (no charge).
Cool song I made an arrangement of for marching band.
I just arranged a version of Bach's Cello Suite no. 1 Prelude.
Could really use any opinions!
I arranged another piece from Morse. Check it out, let me know what you think. Chances are, if you comment on mine, I'll take a look at yours. https://musescore.com/user/31989152/scores/5882300
I have a challenge!!! Who can write / re-write Bonobo : Black Sands into sheet music?
Let's post some original pieces so we can work together to improve are composition skills. I know we're saxes so we don't really care but never mind that.
I'm currently 15 and a Junior in highschool and I've decided to share a couple of my cadences, here's the one I wrote most recently. Please take a listen and give me some feedback. I'm considering buying Musescore Pro but even the year plan is expensive... Do you think it's worth it for me to buy it and upload more? https://musescore.com/user/28637296/scores/5878662
I was wondering if there was any intermediate saxophone and piano duets that are Jazz that anyone on here has played and would like to tell me about?
Do you guys have a discord server??
I arranged a piece by Samuel Morse for orchestra from piano. I thought it was pretty good. feel free to take a listen! https://musescore.com/user/31989152/scores/5869389

hi, if anyone knows a good Christmas song for a saxophone and guitar duet please let me know!
Hello! I am a cellist & I have been arranging pieces into duet & trio form, both for use in ensemble performances as well as for students to play with me in their lessons. I am going to upload a couple of Christmas tunes to see how they work for you. These are easily transposed into viola - cello duets & generally work very well (though you may have minor adjustments on notes that go below the normal instrument range).
Carol of the Bells
Il Est Ne - cello duet
Wassail Songs ( Here We Come a-Wassailing / Wassail, Wassail)
