I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)
I'm looking for some nice, and fairly easy, flute duets for my school's open house. Basically small duets or trios of instruments sit around different areas of the school and play, and I'm trying to find some nice flute duets that can be learned in under a week. I've found two thus far, but will need about seven or eight. If anyone has a duet they really like or want to recommend, I'd love to see what you have!
hi! I play the flute and was wondering if any one has or can make some solo sheet music for welcome to the black parade by my chemical romance?
Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?
Thanks for any feedback!
Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!
This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.
If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!
I would like to hear everybody's opinion on double reeded instruments
This topic is about flutes. well duh. Flutes are great. So what flutes do you play or love or own or yeah!
I play PVC kontrabass flute. I made it! I love the deep haunting sound of the bass flute. I don't have much money, but when I do get enough, I will buy myself a bass flute. First, though, I have to buy myself a new french horn for band next year.
What do you play or own or love?
My band director is soon returning from maternity leave, and I was thinking about playing a piece with some friends to welcome her back. My group consists of 1 clarinet, 3 flutes, 1 trumpet, 1 tuba and a few others willing to play if a chance arises. (Euphonium, Percussionist and trombone) Help me!
But if the flute goes to high it does bother my ears i play violin so im not as used to it as i am towards my violin
My two friends and I were looking for a 3-part flute piece, one that isn't that long, but features a lot of low notes. We have been playing flute for four years. Thank you!
I'm glad to find such a large group of my people! So now an actual discussion question. I am trying to play this piece here ----> https://musescore.com/user/5473921/scores/2030666 and measure 27 etc. is killing me! I can move my fingers fast enough, but I cant move my air fast enough. Any tips?
I was able to recreate a piece made by Larry Clark, Contredanse. Feel free to leave thoughts about it.
Is it just me or is the group at a stalement? It only to me a few seconds to reach comments from 7 years ago. I play clarinet btw.
Hey, I know that this is for horn players (which I am), but are there any mellophone players here? And if there is, any advice because I really want to expand my range. My mello is in the key of b-flat.
Here is my arrangement for brass quintet of Attila ouverture by Giuseppe Verdi
I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.
I was thinking about trying to get money to buy a new, professional horn, and I was wondering what kind of horns are the best. I know that the Berlin Phil plays on Alexander 103s, and they always seem to get good reviews, so I would definitely look at those, but I also know that there are other fantastic instruments and the Alexander might not be the best fit for me. Right now I play a Holton H179, and it works quite well for me, but I have college auditions next year and then college itself, and I think that a better horn would be beneficial.
I was looking online at alexander 103s, just for fun, and I saw that there are several different metals that they use. Each has its pros and cons, but I couldn't find which most people prefer.
If it helps at all, I prefer playing high horn (1st or 3rd).
