I've No Idea What To Do

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.

10 Months On

This is a piece that means a lot to me. I started writing it back in late October, inspired by events in my life from the previous few months. I worked very slowly on it, maybe a minute or so every few days, but what it meant to me was quite a lot. 

It got halted in November, after just the first 16 bars had been written.  

Almost 6 months on from that, I decided to carry on, realising that I could use it as a way to see how I've changed as a composer since then. The short answer is - I haven't. The first melody still came back. The second section represents where I've been in the intervening 6 months, but ultimately I've discovered I'm still the person I was, 10 Months On (from July 2018). I'm pretty happy with that.  

I hope you enjoy it. This is not a work intended to be criticised too hard, and I have no plans to edit it. This is just what came to me to write, not something I've slaved over.   

That's coming next month...  

Hi

Hi everyone, my name is Sierra. I just thought I'd mention that I am also the 700 member. (I though that was pretty cool) I enjoy music of most any kind (my favorite genres are contemporary, country, and classical. I am also a christian and definitely not ashamed of it.

General Discussion

Hi
My name's James

I'm curious to see who out there is actually paying attention to what I upload since my work schedule for MuseScore is about as reliable as Trevithick's steam locomotive, and only the gods know how often people actually look at small groups on this platform, so... yeah.

Come say hello and let's chit-chat, I guess.

Musix update [ANNOUNCEMENT]

Aight, so it has been brought to my attention that the whole musix thing is getting quite a bit out of hand, so Imma step in and make an announcement (btw thanks @mnmwert) So!

- The devs are going to ensure that musix gets banned. No one needs to do anything about it anymore. If a suspicious account messages you, the best response is NOTHING. Or you could reply in a way that makes them stop messaging you so nothing blows up. They can't troll you if you don't allow it. 

- If you do choose to reply, and things get out of hand, that will no longer be this group's business. I really do try to help people settle down drama in here, and I became involved in the musix thing as a result, because as the owner of RSA, I want it to be a happy community that doesn't tolerate trolls or creeps. But it looks like things are starting to get out of control, and if I step in to any more musix incidents, it's only gonna contribute to the blowups. As much as I try to moderate this group, I am only a group owner, and not a musescore dev. I cannot control anything that happens outside of groups I own/moderate, and I (along with the rest of RSA) cannot do anything about his private messages to you. If you get into another incident with musix, report him to the devs, and not this group where everyone can see and get involved. Any other discussions about musix after I post this discussion will be deleted. 

- You do not have to forgive musix in order to stop perpetuating the drama. I don't condone his actions, nor am I prepared to forgive him and allow him into this group. I will continue to keep him out of this group, and, if appropriate, resist him if he tries to harass me or this group in general. But a blowup requires at least two people, so he won't be able to start a fight with just himself or someone who's clearly uninterested to fight with him.

- To those of you who were heavily involved (including myself): like mnmwert said, we don't hold anything against you. We understand that you were disgusted with musix's sexual harassment, and so am I. But we should drop the whole thing altogether if we want to move on. 

- I repeat - ANY DISCUSSION POSTED AFTER THIS ABOUT MUSIX WILL BE DELETED. You do not need to forgive him, but from now on we will try our best to ignore him and handle the situation maturely. We made mistakes and overreacted out of anger and disgust, but we can turn it around and go back to having the happy, chatty, amazing RSA we've always known :D

Y’all Marching?

How many of you are marching tomorrow for Memorial Day? I don’t expect many responses cus it’s really late here, but I’d like to know. What are you playing? Our marching band *was* going to play National Emblem as we marched, but we cancelled the parade because of rain, so we’re just playing the National Anthem and Stars and Stripes Forever at the ceremony.

(Also, I apologize if my activity is annoying to any of you. I’m excited to talk with people who are as enthusiastic about music and saxophones as I am.)
