What do you think about religion?

Coming from a Christian, I have mixed views. Religion is fine and dandy, but RELIGION KILLED JESUS. (And hundreds, maybe thousands, of others)

The Pharisees, who were religious leaders, felt Jesus was violating their religion. They killed him. 

But religion has also molded much of the future for us (I don't think I said that right :P)
You know, prayer, reading Scriptures, meditating on it, that has helped me A LOT. Does that count as religion? I have no idea! So, I dunno. 

I think religion is the pursuit of righteousness.

I think that religion is good, but discriminating people who don't follow it? Not good. It is good, but being too legalistic? Not good.
It's good, but humans messed it up.
For me, it's not religion that's important, it's relationship. With Jesus.
For me, being a Christian is not trying to pursue righteousness and religion, but a relationship with God.

What's your take? :P

(btw, I'm not separating Christianity and religion, but being religious and being Christian )

Hi! I'm excited to see all these viola players gathered in one group. It's so hard to find a good spot like this because violas are so underrated. Anyways, I'm an aspiring viola player who needs a LOT of practice, and I was wondering if any of the more experienced players could recommend some music that might be good for someone playing at a 6th-8th grade level. I've only been playing for 3 years, so I think that would be a good area for me. Thanks!

Transgenderism

What are your thoughts on it?

I can not understand Transgenderism.
If you are born a girl, you are a girl. Nothing can change that.
If you are born a boy, you are a boy. It's not that hard to understand. 

But that is why we debate about it so please show me the other side of this argument.

Welcome

Everyone that is new here, welcome to the group. I’ve made this group for anyone that is the lgbtq+ community and ally’s to talk about anything from coming out to all the way to just laughing and sharing scores, but I also made this group so that we won’t have to be scared about talking and being scared of being bullied for being who we are or in what we believe in. If your ever experience anything that is scary or bad or even just want to talk about life just send me a dm and I’ll try to respond ASAP, but anyways. Welcome

ARRANGEMENT for last concert

hey, so me and my friends want to put together something for our last ever concert but need some help. it needs to be based on film as that's the concert theme but we don't want to do something boring or typical. 

parts needed:
flute
Bb clarinet
trombone
piano
(possibly guitar if possible but we can make something work otherwise)

any help would be much appreciated as the concert is in 10 days!! thank you :)

Can a bassoonist help me here?

So after listening to Bach's Cello Suites and his Flute Partita, I figured I would do a similar thing but for bassoon. The fact that I am writing for bassoon is partly why I decided to start with an overture instead of a prelude(French overture if you want to get into the specific type based on speed pattern). That isn't to say that the slow section won't include some fast 16ths but I have been adding long notes as I see fit.

I only have 13 measures so far, so I'm not thinking of uploading the piece yet. But I can only use the singing method for the alto range and low soprano pretty much(my natural soprano has gotten limited and squeaky over the years, and not because I overused my soprano so unlike before where I could easily sing up to a high G in my soprano, I can barely get a high C out) which means that as soon as the notes are in the range of a bass voice or a low tenor, I can't use the singing method to check for slur placement at all and in the soprano range, it isn't going to be all that accurate(Not that I would have the bassoon going into a soprano range all that often anyway).

And I myself do not play bassoon, partly because the instrument, even at beginner quality is like $3000 worth. Whereas my beginner quality flute, I got for less than $100. That is quite the price difference between the cheapest and most expensive woodwind at beginner quality, excluding auxiliaries.

If I did play bassoon at an advanced level, I could just write down the notes that I want without worrying about slurs, play the notes as written, and see where I run out of breath and how I naturally phrase it. The breath and phrasing together would determine where to put the slurs. But because I don't play bassoon, and I don't have a friend who I know is a bassoonist, this method won't work either.

So if my vocal range is limited pretty much to alto and low soprano making the singing method not viable for bassoon and I don't play bassoon, nor know a friend who plays bassoon, how am I supposed to determine where to put the slurs in my Bassoon Suite?

Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first.
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0).
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers).
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder.
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season (this includes staff).
- The season restarts every 12 pages.
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*
- MuseScore staff (those with the "staff" badge) count as normal, but they can additionally nullify a count breaker's 0 post and turning it into a regular count post by posting immediately after it (i.e. with no post in between). The staff's post should be x+2, where x is the number in the post immediately before the count was broken.****

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7
**** Introduced in Season 10

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.
