You may or may not know this but I am arranging the Pathetique Sonata for a symphony orchestra. I have gotten to the second Grave section and the notes reach the very lowest register of the bassoon. Before I get too deep into it, I need some advice about the bassoon, preferably from someone who plays the bassoon.
Can the bassoon play pianissimo in its lowest register? Because the last note of the Grave section that I would put in the bassoon part is a B natural below the bass staff. I know the bassoon can be very mellow sounding but can B natural below the bass staff be played pianissimo? If not, then I will just have that note played by the double basses and notate it up an octave from where it is in the piano score to get the desired pitch.
I need to find a name for my antique 1940s solid metal clarinet... my flute is named Felipe, and need a name that goes nicely with it.
Thanks for your help!
Does anybody think it’s possible to write out trumpet aheet music for Missed Connection by the Head and the Heart? If you can, thanks so much.
so I am a huge fan of the game Delta Rune and there is not a lot of sheet music for the game that has been uploaded yet. specifically, I'd like someone to make some flute sheet music for the song Legend from that game. thanks!
So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...
I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem. I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound good during competitions.
I arranged City of Stars to be played with a trumpet, piano, and trombone. The trombone that it was designed for is relatively new at the instrument so I wanted the trombone part to be pretty easy. If you could look at the trombone part and give feedback on both the skill level needed to play it and how that part works with the rest of the song that would be great. Thanks!
They are the best!
I am about to do a little "concert" for my school and I was wondering if anyone would want to gives some tips to sound better

Hi. I'm trying out for chair placement for high school band and I'm sCaReD of the high school band director....any tips?
EDIT (4/9/2019) DDAY IS UPON US AND I WILL HAVE RESULTS ON HOPEFULLY FRIDAY!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your love and support really worked! I made my symphonic band as a freshie! I got 6th chair out of 8 symphonic flutes and 7 concert flutes. So how did auditions go? I did all of my scales and arpeggios in 2 octaves (minus Bb, which is the end of me so I only did it in one octave), ALMOST flopped on my chromatic but MADE IT, played my prepared exercise LIKE A SAVAGE, and then the wheels had to come off at sight reading that I'm pretty sure was grade 4 1/2. ANYWAYS, I love ALL of YOU who motivated me! THANKS!
I've been playing the flute for 3-4 years now, and I STILL CAN"T MEMORIZE EVERY. SINGLE. NOTE.
Are you guys:
1. Someone who memorizes notes
2. Someone who memorizes where their fingers go at each place
One of my dad's friends gave me a 50 year old flute that used to be his daughter's and it needs a lot of repair. I'm planning to use it to learn how to replace pads, but I can't seem to find the right pads online. Does anyone know how I could get pads for a old Cadet student model?
Hey guys, could anyone possibly do an arrangement of the song Scream by Sergey Lazarev for flute or flute and piano? (Or string quartet or whatever else people feel like, just some instrument in C )
Hi everyone! I've been lurking around this website for a while but this is my first forum post. I just bought an alto flute, and I was wondering if any of you were composing or arranging solo pieces for the instrument. I can't seem to find much when I search the site so I thought I'd ask here. Right now I'm particularly interested in video game and anime derived pieces - I'm part of my city's Gamer Symphony Orchestra and want to keep in theme - but honestly I'll play anything.
i made it today and it's my 2nd composition and its called Looking at the stars in the past
