So my parents finally bought me an alto last March (I had 3 years under my belt then) and it's a student yamaha. I thought it sounded fine, and I played fairly decent with it. Marching band passed, and no problems. I got a new mouthpiece (Selmer c star) before auditioning for an all east TN honor band a few months ago in December (I made it), and I thought I sounded good still. My teacher said my sound was fine. Recently, for the past month or two, I've been noticing a subtle "buzzy" sound when I play, and at first I thought it was the reed. I changed reeds and found out that was not the case. I showed my band director, and he said it shouldn't be a problem. I showed my teacher, too, but he said he couldn't hear it. I even gave my friend a chance to play my sax, and we both could hear it. Fast track to a few days ago; I got my sax out to start practicing, and immediately I was hit with the very noticeable buzzy sound... but much worse than before. Almost every note has the buzzy sound in it; especially middle g through middle d. I'm going to meet my teacher about it in a few days. But, would anyone know any reason for this just suddenly happening? I feel like it could be my mouthpiece, since it has tiny scratches here and there, or my alto itself, or both. Any advice would be appreciated.
I feel like I spend an embarrassing amount of time on this site.......it's supposed to be where you share your sheet music...? xD
Ah well. I guess it's also now a chat site for musicians with no lives.
I'm afraid of gas stations... they give me the hebee jebees.
I afraid of a lot of other stuff but they are pretty common, thats my only weird one.
Wait! I've got two other ones.
One: Public bathrooms, they freak me out.
two: starting conversations, I start sweating and stuttering.
what vegetable would you be?
Someone had done this earlier, but I thought I might give it a try!
Please post a comment and I will tell you my first thought about you according to your comment, username, profile pic, and past knowledge of you :D
Four days ago I noticed a new style of font on the comments section of my page. I figured it was your new Spring look, but now whenever I want to play a piece of mine or elsewhere one of three things happens:
1) The blue line begins to race across the page before I press play and it plays with the scroll 8 or so bars ahead; 2) it stutters or does not play; 3) It plays (eureka!)
Hardly a good way to entice listeners, wouldn't you say?
Sometimes it stalls and it takes forever to leave the page.
Until this occurrence all had been fine. I have rebooted and my PC seems to be fine in all other aspects. I use Windows 10, Firefox and ver 2.3.2.
I like it it's like my second favorite string instrument -MINT
I've been asked to make an arrangement of a Danish pop song for trumpet and church organ. I suspect the organist who'll play this has two or three manuals, so would it it possible to do these dramatic dynamic changes?
Hy guys, I play Alto Sax and I'm 14. I play it since I was 10 but I don't feel any improve in technique since 1 year ago. I was wondering how I improve. Thanks for who answers me!
I'm not making any scores, I'm only using this as a networking website and to find music. Why bother?
Basically, I'm being a copy-cat. Only thing different from the one in RSA and this one, is this is for riddles only.
So, for those of you who don't know the rules, I will try to explain. There will be 10 riddles per round. If you answer a riddle correctly, you will get a point! You are allowed to guess as many times as you want. The person that has the most points by the end of the round, wins that round!
Also, only Phia and I will post the riddles. Please, do not try to post your own because I will delete them. If you want to post riddles, you must do it in a different discussion.
What is a Composer That you like that almost no one has heard of? mine's Max Bruch.

I somehow glitched the Play Panel to make the background transparent for it...
Am I the only one who feels so unsafe at school right now? Like, there is literally no security. Just a couple weeks ago, a kid brought a pellet gun to school. That can still really hurt people, and it's still illegal, even though it's not a "real gun". Some days I'm honestly so scared and I just want to hide in the locker room in dance today because I'm honestly terrified and it seems like I'm the only one who feels this way.
"Jay's Challenge" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
So what are we going to do? This is the best competition group still active. It's the most active one, and the biggest, and I'm concerned it will die with only Jay to run it.
We don't want it going silent like so many great competition groups before it.
How do I find the Top Users page? Or whatever it's called.
