I just joined jazz band and although I originally play the flute, now I'm playing the tenor sax and finding it a bit difficult. Any tips?
Hello dear woodwinds,
There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:
Hi! I was wondering if anyone has found good High Hopes sheet music. Thanks!
I really wish I'd found this website earlier. It's awesome! Does anyone have any pieces they'd like to recommend? I have been playing the flute for 6 years and would love to have something more challenging than what is being offered in band. Unfortunately I only have a standard flute with none of the extra keys that advanced flutes have, so I can't go very high, but I know how to play some high level pieces. I really just want to do a cool solo for fun but I have no idea where to start. Can you help me?
Where are my *cough* fellow gamers who play the flute, I haven't seen many posts here about this kinda stuff and I feel lonely, let's just share some music so we can all feel lonely together.
This time we shared a cool troop cadance.
Check it out and share!
We'd love to know what you think of it!
Hello. I am a "Beginner" 7th Grade Flute player. I have been playing flute for about a year now and I'm pretty good. I need some music that is for a 7th grade flutist. Every time I try to find one, its way too advanced. Thank you guys.
can you give me some feedback on this piece..
Add suggestions of other themes you would like to see
I’m looking for some nice music if you could give so suggestions that would be great!
(I’m not too advanced, I’m in 8th grade and I have 3 years experience ((I’m in the 7th grade band since I moved, since I wasn’t there last year and it was a requirement to be in the 7th grade class before the 8th grade class, if that really makes a difference))
Guys please help last Friday my wisdom teeth were remove making playing difficult and I don't want dry socket. Can you help me with playing techniques to start playing again.
(P.S. check out my pieces A Joyful Noise and Happy Days)
Thanks and please help any advice will be very and gratefully needed.
I've taken the liberty in transcribing the Traditional March Downfall of Paris.

Hey brass players, I'm just trying to get my name out there, so go check out Darth Mauldin on youtube, link here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyt1_lzcezGK3RXhIPZyR9Q
Please leave a post in this discussion for any kind of feedback.
I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...
It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.
(If I'm way to active, let me know)
Great emotional piece with some legendary oboe solos. Be sure to have mastered dynamic influence while going into notes, that's a key part in this song. Don't forget to breath, you'll need all the air possible for this one.
I mostly play the tbone, baritone, and trumpet and I'm getting braces soon. Does it affect playing?
The craziest people I've ever known are double reeds. Like thinking about the strangest things for no reason, even though you have no interest in them. Maybe it's the back pressure getting to my skull.
Will let you know if I get any aneurysms lol
To all those who play the flute, what exactly do we call ourselves? Like people who play the clarinet are clarinetists, people who play percussion are percussionists, but what are we? Flutists? Flautists? Floutisits? Flutation devices?
Hiya fellow flautists,
Wondering if I could get any feedback on this Disney medley I arranged for the school flute quartet I play in. Any criticisms great appreciated xx
Right, so I'm just starting off on trombone. I've never played a brass instrument before this, just woodwinds and strings.
