How to practice ornamentation?

I have been studying the recorder over a month with a Yamaha method book for alto recorder. But ever since I took a peek on some baroque pieces, mainly the book "Der Fluyten Lust-Hof", I have been dealing with a little problem: to play baroque pieces, I have to hone my skills around phrasing and ornamentation, as they are very important to even get the theme of the musics. 

Sadly for me, I can't afford books surrounding the subject because they are not easy to get in Brazil, almost all of the interesting books are overseas and I'm on a budget. How can I exercise? It's a good strategy to do some trial and error to make musically convincing or is there something you would recommend me doing?

f*ck, marry, kill

heyo...another game :P
(also...if you don't like swear words just replace it with "kiss" - but the f word is the original title of the game)

Anyway basically someone gives three people (or things) and you choose one to kiss, one to marry, and one to kill. It's basically a fancier (and more fun) version of ranking 3 things in order of preference.
Ex. if someone said Bob, Joe, and Jeff, I could choose to kiss Bob, kill Joe, and marry Jeff, etc.
If the choices are things and not people..."marry" would mean you can have/experience the thing to its full extent, "kiss" would be to have/experience it to a partial extent, and "kill" would be to have the thing completely destroyed and you don't get to have it at all.

Sooo...yeah. Let's try...

1. Musix, Dookis, and Lordtroll

2. Dress spammers, people who fill up the entire community page by spamming "look at my score" in every single group they're in, and people who post passive aggressive "constructive" criticism on people's scores

3. a steinway piano, a 20 year's supply of your favourite food, and your current (or most recent) crush

4. your grades, your social life (both in-person and online), and your sleep

5. all your followers on musescore, all the people who regularly talk in this group, and everyone you're following on here

And feel free to make your own :P

Hard Grand Piece Required for Piano

in Piano

Hello fellow pianists,

I am creating this discussion on behalf of myself to ask the questions whether someone would kindly create a score which has a grand sort of feel and is difficult. It will need octaves, low notes and lots of chords. You can choose the genre. Please reply and create in the timescale of a year maximum (at preference we can discuss further details).

Thank you for your time,

Joe on a boat’s musical cousin

Impossible to download OpenScore templates without a Pro account

The new download rules on musescore.com are creating quite a problem for transcribers who don't yet have a Pro account.  They can't even download a template score in order to start their transcription.

Nor can the wider world any longer download our Public Domain scores without joining musescore.com and having a Pro account.

I have raised these problems with Dmitriy Popov, who is in charge of implementing the new download policy.  He has already acknowledged in posts on "Improving MuseScore.com" that Public Domain works probably need to be handled differently.

Moving Classics TV have decided to record my piece and interview me!

 Moving Classics TV have decided to record my piece and interview me! 

Anna, who hosts a channel and website called:  MOVING CLASSICS TV  
http://movingclassics.tv/
reached out to me a few months ago, beacuse she really loved my piece, Opus 34, titled ''Longing''.

In their (Moving Classics) own words they ''follow new trends of driving interest in piano music: new and younger audience discovering their music through social media... '' 

I am really grateful that contemporary and young composers who often are not heard at all anymore, can get this type of recognition. 

I have no segway into this, but, here is the sheet music, including video, audio and interview (to be found in the description) here:
