First off, I was wondering if anyone knew any techniques to help with having a longer playing time before taking a breath or any exercises to help with breathing too much when playing. I don't have a lot of lung opacity and I take a lot of breaths. Also, when I'm playing high notes sometimes my lips sorta buzz and I thinks it's my embouchure getting too small, but I just want some feedback on that and how to help that. Thanks!
we made an arrangement, based on the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps version of Drowsy Maggie.

Hey everyone, I play flute and have been for 3 years now, but all of my friends were just like "oh, why do you play flute when spit comes out?"
Dont people know its condensation lol
but still its annoying
Hi I've been playing flute for about 2 years now and I'm at the intermediate level. At a band camp I went to this summer, and got my vibrato down (with help from my director and a college student) that the guy at my solo and ensemble contest said I needed to learn....But then when the college girl who was helping me said 'oh you need to learn flutter tonging' I was like 'o wat' so now I need help.
here's another #MusescoreMonday challange for ya.
The new RD Lick 'Sparkling' by our team member Jesse
Check it out and let us know what you think of it.
Check out my score of TheDooo's Hallelujah
Can you help me out on this one? I have a concert coming up and I don't want the notes to be all squeaky.
Hi you all,
we uploaded a new rudimental challenge. It's called Rudimental Progression.
A composition for snare drum, bass drum and drum kit with some progressive changes.
Check it out and let us know what you think of it:
Check out this awesome arrangement I made for the themes of Star Trek, the Original Series and the Next Generation.
I have this thing whilst playing my flute and after playing a long note I take a very loud breath? What should i do? (all my friends anf family say they can hear me breathe when im doing performances!
Hey, I know this is a really weird question, but does anyone else have a problem where your face and hands get tingles/ pins and needles while plying the flute???
Because that happens to me sometimes in band
I finally finished what has, up until now, been known as 'Percussion Driven Work in Progress (End of Day ________)'. It's called 'The War Continues' and at seven minutes fifty seconds, it is the third longest piece I've composed and is most definitely by far the most complex. I tried to use flutes to bring in a lighter feeling amid the darkness in certain areas.
I want to say thank you to everyone who gave me feedback and advice--it REALLY helped.
'The War Continues'
Hey! I hate asking for feedback, but as this is my first arrangement I would heavily appreciate it. Please note the lack of bass clarinet is due to my group not having one, maybe I'll make a version with the bass to have it sound better in the future.
I recently posted a set of three pieces for clarinet and piano...
If you are a clarinetist, please give me your feedback on the clarinet part.
Sorry I was gone, getting ready for finals. Anyway, hows everyone, hope playing is going well. ill post a topic later in the week. Tomorrow I am going to meet and talk to Jacob Medlin, a horn maker, and I will probably post about that. anyway have a nice day.
EDIT: We're looking for recordings of the ballad! Here's the link for more info! https://musescore.com/groups/musecorps/discuss/5027254
Hello everyone! My friend Mark and I have been working on a show for fun. It is based off of the novel 1984, and will likely be completed within the next month.
If enough people sign up, we hope to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. Basically, by this, we plan to have as many people record themselves playing though the parts as we can get, then compile the parts together into one big audio file. Mark is working on writing drill in a program.
All I'm hoping for with this specific thread is to see how many people would be interested in hearing more about this idea. Lemme know if you'd want to play in it below, and ask any questions that you may have! I'll make a bigger post in the near future with specifics.
If you haven't seen the score yet, here's a link: https://musescore.com/themtcrew/scores/5217400
Thanks guys! If you want/can, let any friends that you think would be interested know about this. We hope to get as many brass players as we can, and will take any percussion recordings if we can find them! To be clear, we're not looking for recording yet, as the show isn't completed. Just wanted to see how many would be interested!
hey so i'm writing a score, but I'm new to this program and was wondering if any of you know how to set the tempo? thanks
