The Second and Third Place Winners Are...

G. B. Wanscher: Né'Alhru'unduun'yeh - Arrangement for Jay and Jhon's March Challenge

3rd:
Keystring Composer: Spring - The Awakening


Congratulations guys! Both of these pieces were amazing!

G. B. Wanscher, I loved your piece. Personally, it captured a spring thunderstorm which is what I love. Excellent work.

Keystring Composer, your piece was amazing. I loved that magical spring feeling that you obviously captured. Amazing!

Keep up the great work guys!

-Jay

G.B. Wanscher: Loved your peace! Although, the slow feeling didn't resonate with me with having a Spring feeling. Other than that it was great!

Keystring Composer: You captured a magical essence in your song! Loved it!

Scissors Story

So this happened earlier today at my school. Basically, some dude in my grade took a pair of scissors, took them apart, and used them to attempt to stab 3 different people. The best he got was one of them was bleeding from the finger, but the point is that he didn’t exactly intend for them to leave in one piece. A few minutes later, where only the involved people have heard about this, half the school administration comes down to get him. From the rumors I’ve heard, he got 3 weeks of OSS and a Police Referral. Anyone had something like this happen at their school?

Should I quit music?

hey there, im drsooz. im what i would proclaim to be uncreative and untalented. i've been trying this music thing for a long time now, but i'm just now getting anywhere. im horrible at playing instruments and i seem to be horrible at creating music (i mean seriously - just look at what ive created. it sucks). ive been trying so hard at it for so long but im not getting anywhere, and faced with the works of the greats such as rachmaninoff, tchaikovsky, and others it feels like anything i write or play is pointless. should i stop this whole musical charade? its not going to ever benefit me. im just not talented enough. i've realized that ill never have the performance or composition ability of those around me

Grand Staff Piano all on one clef

I used to have software where I just played my usb/midi keyboard, set a quantize level, and it recorded basic music (for beginner students) it quite well.  It would generally separate the treble and bass clef just fine.  I could select and move notes as needed after with my mouse.   

Everywhere I search online and here it talks about separating vocal or band parts, but no discussion on basic piano being split between the two staffs at middle C and tweaking it from there.  It all records on only one clef at a time.  How can I adjust this?  Thanks so much.

Welcome! Why don’t you introduce yourself? :D

Hey guys, welcome to Wolf Pack! Why don’t you take a moment to introduce yourselves?
Also, a thanks to AcousticRenegade for making this group! She’s our leader technically, so listen to her. ;P

Guess I’ll introduce myself.


I’m Jay, I’m a transcriber, arranger, singer, composer, and pianist. I’ve had piano lessons for 2 and a half years, and I’ve been self taught sense. I’m currently learning guitar too. I love making people smile, and I love to talk to people. :)

A truly outstanding piece that captured the joyous emotions of springtime. The harp is amazing, I love it. You really captured an adventurous feel with this song. Congratulations on 1st place! I'm excited to see more from you! Keep up the phenomenal work!

2 NEW CHANGES IN JAY AND JOHN'S CHALLENGES!!!

Some changes are in effect for making this group better, and more rewarding for our competitors and winners!

1. We will be providing feed back for each score instead of only 1st place winner to specify strengths and weaknesses in your scores for future reference. 

2. We will be keeping a list of JAY and JOHN'S CHALLENGES' winners in a separate discussion as a "WALL OF FAME" for recognition of first place winners, as well as 2nd place and 3rd place winners!

Also Jay and I are reviewing your scores to decide the final winner this Saturday! And trust me when I say, it's not an easy decision. xD Thanks everyone!

-John & Jay
