Andante – a walking tempo, temporarily, until you trip over a sixteenth note; 足にけいれんがありました
Basso continuo – a form of bass line from the baroque period, noted with numbers that indicate chords, probably in a random nonsensical fashion according to the whims of the composer; あなたは生の魚を食べたことがありますか
Berceuse – a lullaby, causing you to doze off and miss your cue. Then the conductor throws his or her baton at you, stabbing you through the heart, and forever after you mournfully haunt the concert hall; matur nuwun sewu lulla, aku wis wektu swell
Crescendo – growing as in a swelling of sound, short for "Criminy, close the blooming window"; te recomendamos a good restaurant
Expressive – play expressively, sometimes with tears, grimacing, and much gnashing of your teeth; Har du noen kippers, jeg er sulten
Fugue – contrapuntal, someone's contrary uncle; غوريلا قليلة في العالم
Gigue – a lively dance form from the baroque, and when the music stops, everyone yells "gique!" and everyone falls down laughing: uma ingaphukile ungayilungisi
Giocoso – play the piece cheerfully or in a playful way, what other way is there? আমার পায়ের আঙ্গুল ব্যাথা, এটা কিছু মাখন করা
Leggiero – lightly without force, also a type of linguini; hvis du kommer til at trykke mig på skulderen, gør det forsigtigt, tak. Jeg er hele fra mudderbrydning i aftes
Legno – for string players to use wooden side of bow to hit the strings, and sometimes the heads of other players; fass mein Bein nicht an NEIN!
Mezzo – half, what the conductor says you will be paid for a performance; Hatagan ko ikaw niini nga donut
Passacaglia – baroque dance form with a short melodic phrase, usually in the bass, and sometimes in the basement; 海龜是很棒的寵物
Poco a poco – little by little, you poka me, I poka you to the tune of a polka; ти ме тласкаш и аз ще те съборя
Rallentando – gradually slower, since we get tired during a performance such as one of Wagner's 8 hour opera performances; когда я становлюсь старше, я становлюсь медленнее
Ritenuto – slow down, obviously a curse word in Italian meaning "addle-brained musician who can't stay on the beat" but few will admit it ; Εγώ θα puke εάν δεν οδηγείτε πιο αργά
Rubato – play with freedom, deviate from strict tempo to get more expressive playing, also another curse word, loosely translated "you are a fat pig"; onde fica o banheiro?
Scherzo – joke, fast light-hearted, the sound an Italian makes when he or she sneezes (I'm part Italian so I am allowed to do Italian jokes); La tua faccia sembra un formaggio ammuffito
Sarabande – in baroque, a slow, genteel dance in triple time, also a small musical group led by the famous singer, Sara; Ég stakk upp á hundinn þinn
Triple time – three beats to a measure like ¾, also, multitasking, doing three things at once like drinking a soda, texting and driving causing you to rear end a truck; Эмнэлэг хаана байна вэ?
Useful musical notations with some translations as well
i am working on a piano sonata
I wonder about this as a number of commenters seem highly critical of compositions that aren't according to musical conventions - with instruments out of order in the score, instruments being played outside their normal musical range, or absence or misuse of musical notations.
Glad you are here, hope to hear some of you funny, silly, inane, bizarre works soon. Have fun while you are here.
I am your group owner @IsaacBannon and i am happy that u don't want to tear out my throat! Pls feel free to do absolutely anything on this groupchat! *suicides*
It is really great that musescore now can let you post your compositions online with the same soundfonts and thus the same sound you hear on your own home computer, or wherever you do your composing. No more frustrations of having the posted compositions sounding different from what you wanted. Under file, click save online and check the box for importing your composition's sound. Nice.
big thanks to the anonymous person who gave me a month of free pro musescore. so kind and wonderfully wonderfully generous.
Mine is my rondo for a sonata collab
I will update this weekly
Group is created today! Woohoo! *confetti and stuff falls from sky*
Eek! I forgot to do this yesterday. The group is already dying, so uhh… :o
@Jaybird1 is one of the first truly active members, I told him I would give him a shoutout here, so here you go :P
I haven't updated this in a while, this group is blowing up now...
Holy cow, this group is blowing up. 8 members in 4 days, wow...
Hmm...Starting to die again...
Welp...I was wrong...
I was very wrong, this group is really blowing up, welp
So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.
Okay then, I don't know what to say
Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)
So this group is now closing in on 100 members, but we need more discussions!
Wow, 5 more members till 100!
Woohoo! 100 Members!
This group is starting to die
Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.
I'm just going to leave this group alone for a while, only update this discussion every once in a while.
Congrats on earning your Eagle Scout! It is a high honor! Introduce yourself here. Things like: what was your Eagle Project? What were some of your favorite merit badges? Did you receive your Order of the Arrow award? Have a great time.
A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.
One says: "Hey you, the other day I gave a concert and had to play with someone, who had built a harp like you and me into a wooden box and knocked on it with felt hammers."
So, I just hit the big 300 mark! What should I do? I Was thinking of revamping/ finishing the old old old Phantom of the opera string quartet I had done a million years ago Lol So If you have a suggestion of a piece I should arrange, or an interesting idea for an original, Then feel free to share! Thanks!!!
First group i've made, Its for ALL THE THINGS, If you don't know where to put a new piece. Put it here. All other info is on the group page! Come and join!!!
"I'll save you!"
(Insert more below.)
We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)
I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.
here is an idea for a film music contest.

Supergirl and wonderwoman are in a face-off and are getting ready to fight.
Write themes for each character.

Any one interested?
