Hey When are we gonna get a good front ensemble update
Hi! I am a flute player with 1-ish years of experience. I was wondering if you guys had any good song recommendations.
First things first, transcribing is the arranging a piece of music for a different instrument or voice. Music engraving is the art of drawing music notation at a high quality for the purpose of mechanical reproduction (music copying at a higher degree of skill and quality). Arranging is the adaptation of a composition for performance with instruments or voices other that those originally specified. Here are a couple of tips for those who want to become a better arranger/transcriber/engraver.
1. Figure out what you want to arrange: Always brainstorm your ideas before you start arranging. A good strategy that I use is writing down/typing my ideas on a document. Then, listen to the song you want to arrange. This gives you an idea on how you want to format your arrangement
2. Get to know your transcribing software: After downloading your software, learn how to use it. There are many tutorials on Youtube and there's the online handbook. A good tip: don't be afraid of your computer keyboard. It's actually a huge advantage.
3. Give credit to the original composer: You should never take someone else's music and call it your own. It's wrong and illegal. Always follow the copyright laws. That doesn't mean you can't use the music. It means you can still use another person's music while keeping all of your rights reserved. Just give that person credit.
4. Don't be afraid of UWI's: What is a UWI?? It stands for Unidentified Weird Instruments. If you don't know what the instrument is, look it up or ask your music teacher. Weird instruments like the ocarina, the kazoo, and many others actually enhance your arrangement and make it sound unique.
5. Never doubt your abilities: Always have self confidence. When you doubt yourself, you're actually hindering your abilities. The way to gain self confidence is to practice.
I started transcribing almost two years ago. I hope these tips are helpful and I wish you good luck as you pursue this art.
I'm trying to write 20:3 in 4/4 but I'm not sure how to do that. Anyone know hot?
I'm arranging an indoor show about the four elements including the selections:
Opening by Sleeping at Last
In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins
I Burn by Fools Garden
Waves by Dean Lewis
Earth by Sleeping at Last
Any good titles for this show?
Guess what? I have siblings. Guess what? They made me play Elmo on my flute.

I'm loving MDL so far; it's everything I've wanted out of Musescore percussion, and more. However, there were a few minor things that I've noticed missing that might make for nice additions.
First off, bass drum shots would be nice. Most lines use rim shots (in addition to clicks) on at least first and second bass, so notation for shots vs. rim clicks on basses might come in handy.
Secondly, a hand mute for Drums 3 and 4 on the tenors would make a nice addition, since skanks (shot on 3rd or 4th followed immediately by mute) are fairly common.
And finally, let me say that I know that Muse is a notation software and not a playback software, so this one might be asking too much: it might be nice to have zone changes (specifically on snare) in playback in the future, just to enhance the difference between guts/halfway/center/etc.
Thanks for reading!
Hello I Just joined which I hope is okay but I play the flute and I think it's the best! And in other words I am just a Seventh Grader that plays the flute and I am just a beginner
I just want to know what games you all have been playing that have some dope music in it! :)
Yay!!!!! I found a great title. Its called Terra Firma
Is there any way someone could transcribe a portion of Cavaliers 2018 for me?
Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic9FQfwa-Yw
Time stamps: 4:09 to 4:55
Thank you so much!
p.s. I only need the brass parts, but of course, the percussion would also be amazing because I have no other way of producing it.
If anybody is interested in giving MuseScore Pro a shot, here is my invite link:
Ok so I've been playing the flute for a while now, about two years, but I still have trouble keeping a consistent high note
So like, when I play a high note it goes in and out of being a high note and a low note
Hi, sorry but if anyone knows or can arrange a flute solo for any heathers song can you tell me cause its my favourite musical and it would be greatly appreciated!!

We'd love to hear from you and talk a out the craft of (rudimental) drumming and #ShareTheTradition
If anyone is interested, I recently created a new group called Percussion Solo and Duet Repertoire. I want the group to store as much percussion repertoire as possible that only requires on or two players to perform. This can also includes pieces that feature a percussion soloist (Ex: Bob Becker's Bye Bye Medley and Emmanuel Sejourne's Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra).
