Hi! Welcome to this group!
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.
Looking for some good pieces to play over the summer, Any Suggestions?
I was wondering what the most common saxophone variant is, whether is be soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone. Can you tell me your type.
I can't decide if I should switch to Baritone or Tenor Sax, or if I should stay an Alto Sax. Can you help me decide
I had this idea last year of composing a suite that represents different types of weather. But it wasn't until yesterday that I started composing part of this suite. As you can probably tell from the post title, this part of the suite is supposed to represent a storm. That is why I chose the key to be a minor key. I went with C minor because it is the easiest of the minor keys for me to improvise in. I would have used 8va for the sixteenth note runs in the right hand. Problem is, the section that would be 8va goes by so fast that I'm not sure where to start the 8va. Similar thing goes for where I would typically use a clef change. So outside of the first few bars, I haven't put in any 8va markings or clef changes.
I have been doing these things to get across the feeling of a storm in the piece:
- Keep the 16th note momentum up except for places where I decide to use a harmonic progression
- Use scalar passages with leaps to represent the strong wind
- Stark dynamic contrast(Like it quickly goes from pianissimo to fortissimo in the beginning 5 bars)
- Staccato to represent the rain
- Fast octaves to give a sense of turbulence(which is very fitting for music that is supposed to sound like a storm)
- Use the Fate Motif underneath a long scalar passage to give the feeling of a lightning flash
- Use harmonic progressions to represent the thunder
- Use diminished 7ths more often than dominant 7ths
Here is the link to the piece if you want to give me feedback on what I have so far of it:
Hi all, i would like to have a chord analyser :-)
it should works like this steps:
- Import a Midifile
- 1. function -> Analysis of the Harmony
- 2. function -> write the chord at right part on the score
maybe with the same function(analysis of harmony) it's possible to create a new voice for example the 3. or the 5. -> it would be a great help for choir scores.
Thank you for your great work.
This is a multipart video of a jazz festival at Hyères in France. Sylvain Luc on the guitar, André Ceccarelli on drums, Jean-Marc Jafet on the bass...
Those three guys communicate with one another on what is ultimately a human level but transcribing what they do here (and on further pieces as well) is beyond my ability...
That is the beauty of jazz, after all. But at this level, it is truly magic! Unless it can be transcribed faithfully...
Finished arranging Dance With the Devil by Breaking Benjamin! I've got a few other scores finished that will be on their way shortly!
Why? I have absolutely no idea. But we are a group now, (yeah I just realized that there are people in this group and I am very excited and happy that people have joined this group) and we need to have discussions now....
So. How bout we start with a question?
Who is your favorite classical composer and why?
We have like 5 meme review channels and whatever
And everyone is pretty active
Well pride month is half way done and I was wondering what was everyone has been doing for pride?
Please continue to review the notes in my piece by listening to the linked YouTube videos and following along on my piece, noting any discrepancies in the backing piano transcription:
All of Me, by John Legend
Is it interesting for you to have a posibility to filter searching results by key signature?
For example, you search 'Mozart', filter by instrument 'Piano', and then filter by key signature like '2 sharps'.
Does it really have demand?
Thank you for your answers!
