Hey all! I'm going to audition for my local junior orchestra in the fall, and need some advice... here are the requirements:

  • A classical concerto for your instrument of your choice
  • Major scales and arpeggios up to four flats and sharps
  • Melodic minor scales and arpeggios up to four sharps and flats

Songs for alto and bari sax

So I have been playing alto for almost two years and I started on the bari sax and I'm pretty good. But all my band music was thrown out for my alto sax(didn't play bari in my band) and I'm looking for songs to play and learn. I want to get better at Bari for the upcoming school year since thats why I'm playing the bari over the summer. Thanks! Hard, easy and in between songs are just fine :)

Zum Beispiel hatte ich die Hochzeit eines Freundes im Sommer 2008

1. Eine Methode, die ich immer beschäftigen wird faßt mein Tagebuch und Kenntnis nehmend von meinem bevorstehende Veranstaltungen. Zum Beispiel hatte ich die Hochzeit eines Freundes im Sommer 2008 so suchte ich nach Schnäppchen Kleider im Verkauf 2007. Fast alle meine Freunde waren um Rauschen in der letzten Minute der Jagd für ein Kleid und die meisten am Ende Beschuss aus ein Vermögen. Formale Kleider müssen nicht drastische Trendänderungen wie Party Kleider, so dass niemand wusste, ich war ', so der vergangenen Saison! Mit dem Einkauf früh, es bedeutete auch, ich war nicht die gleichen Möglichkeiten wie die anderen Hochzeitsgäste beschränkt.

2. Wenn Sie für Ihren großen Tag der Hochzeit einkaufen, mit einem lächerlich teuer Brautkleid macht es nicht mehr besondere oder machen Sie besser aussehen

, es tut einfach weh Ihre Taschen! Wer fragt, wie viel Ihr Kleid war - niemand wird wissen, was fantastisch günstigen Preis bezahlt.

I need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.

Getting very young children interested in music

I think that the new "piano Roll" to keyboard software is fantastic and I would like to know how this could be used to bring keyboard skills to very young children and how to present this as a computer game using very simple songs and progressing both in speed and complexity. This could then be possibly transferred to music notation? Is this type of learning available to inspire our very young people? I wish that I had this opportunity when I was young

Which Professional Sax Should I Invest In?

The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.

The options are:

Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone

Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone

Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone

Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P

Help needed from flutists/flautists(?)

Hi, I was wondering, are there any flute players that have Mark Karen’s ‘The Flute Etudes’ book? I’m trying to help out a friend after hearing that the flute etudes used by TMEA are among some of the hardest. I know that most of them that were selected by the author are in public domain, but I don’t know which ones. If you could tell me which etudes are used in the book, that’d be greatly appreciated.
