Halloween Music

15 discussions • 266 scores • 264 members

Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of "All Hallows' Evening"), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It initiates the triduum of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows' Eve revolves around the theme of using "humor and ridicule to confront the power of death."

According to many academic scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, with possible pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic Samhain. Other academic scholars maintain that it originated independently of Samhain and has solely Christian roots.

Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (or the related "guising"), attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted house attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films. In many parts of the world, the Christian religious observances of All Hallows' Eve, including attending church services and lighting candles on the graves of the dead, remain popular, although in other locations, these solemn customs are less pronounced in favour of a more commercialized and secularized celebration. Because many Western Christian denominations encourage, although no longer require, abstinence from meat on All Hallows' Eve, the tradition of eating certain vegetarian foods for this vigil day developed, including the consumption of apples, colcannon, cider, potato pancakes, and soul cakes.

Artists whose passion to compose outweighs their ability

24 discussions • 1.2K scores • 253 members

This group is mainly for self taught artists, but is open for anyone who feels that they could benefit from a community, who, like them, have a song perfectly written in their head, but have trouble making it sound the way they want, which is often discouraging! This is the place where advice should be shared to anyone who shares a score that aren't quite perfect yet, and any artist can share tips through discussion or otherwise, for their fellow enthusiasts! Any score shared is welcome, I for one love all types of music =) Keep in mind the MuseScore community guidelines, and have fun here! I hope this is a learning experience for you (as well as me)!

The Group for Young Composers

24 discussions • 890 scores • 251 members

This group lets young composers (18 and younger) share and critique their original compositions. I hope everyone gets helpful feedback and shares their opinions for others.

The Beethoven Piano Sonatas

9 discussions • 128 scores • 248 members

Get involved in submitting MuseScore versions of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas as a way to feature MuseScore in several media outlets, such as YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook and others.

A great way for teachers to help their students learn notation, and for others who are bored and have nothing else to do.

Instructions:

In the discussion area where the Sonatas are listed, simply choose a Sonata that has not already been "taken" and submit a post stating: "Sonata No. _____, Opus ____ has been taken."

Then work on notating your chosen sonata as a MuseScore file and upload it to this group when completed. Each movement should have a separate file.

Others can help (if they don't want to notate) by working on playback or video scores for these pieces once they are uploaded.

By joining, you agree that the piece you notate can be uploaded by others with whatever corrections or additions are necessary for playback and video score purposes. So the same score may be uploaded by several people who are working on the final product.

Discussions may center around questions and answers regarding notation, playback and where/how to post these works for easy access on other sites. This is a group effort, but those who notate may place their name on the work, or remain anonymous.

All works must include the opus number and the composer as follows:

Sonate (Beethoven's sonatas use the German spelling)
No. ______, Opus _______ (or Nr. __________, Opus __________)
Ludwig van Beethoven
(1770-1827)

Be careful regarding copyright issues and use scores that are public domain. Even though the music itself is public domain, certain printed/published scores are not. Generally, fingering and some dynamic markings may be copyrighted, as well as pedal markings and other articulations. If you're not certain about this, then simply set the marking as invisible, or use an alternate marking (hairpins as opposed to text, for example for crescendos and diminuendos/decrescendos).

PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD ANYTHING OTHER THAN BEETHOVEN PIANO SONATAS TO THIS GROUP. ANY OTHER WORKS WILL BE REMOVED WITHOUT NOTICE.

I've already submitted a sample Beethoven Sonata for you to view to get an idea of what we want. It isn't complete.

28 discussions • 758 scores • 227 members

Silly scores, Dumb titles for serious scores, Parodies or goofy renditions of works, Crazy/Silly/Dumb lyrics, pieces written out of mere boredom, drunkenness, or just for fun. Formed this group (though I'm relatively new here) because i did not see a similar group, and noticed that many people employ a sense of humor in their works that sometimes gets (or can get) misunderstood otherwise.
