What Is a Lead Sheet?

Most musicians would define a lead sheet as follows: a simple music score showing only the originally composed melody line of a song / composition, and chord symbols representing the chord changes of a song / composition. In the case of popular songs played in the jazz community, a lead sheet often includes the words to the song. If you've ever used a fakebook like 'The Real Book' or 'The Ultimate Jazz Fake Book', you've seen a lead sheet.

Some lead sheets may include introductory instrumental sections. For popular songs, introductory verses are sometimes included. Occasionally, a lead sheet includes a suggested bass line or a suggested chord voicing, when they are an integral part of the song or composition. For example, the lead sheets for Miles Davis' "All Blues" and "So What" in the Real Book vol. 1 feature bass lines and/or piano chord voicings considered essential to playing the composed sections of those tunes (assuming that you want to reproduce the general arrangement and feel of the original recording).

Lead sheets are primarily intended to help musicians play a song in live performance, or to learn the melody and chords of a song during a practice section.

The following are usually NOT considered lead sheets:
* A full arrangement with multiple instrumental parts
* A piano (or guitar, etc.) score with chord voicings throughout the score
* A transcription of a recorded performance including instrumental solos

What Is a Jazz Standard?

Generally speaking, jazz standards are either popular songs written between about 1910 and 1960 that have been performed by jazz musicians and singers over many years, OR instrumental tunes by jazz composers like Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Wayne Shorter that have been widely performed and recorded by jazz musicians and singers of mid-20th century popular music.

As with any artistic category, sometimes the boundary lines are a little hard to draw. For example, certain 19th-century ragtime pieces, Brazilian bossa novas, folks songs, and even adaptations of classical music have become jazz standards. The important distinguishing factor for a jazz standard is that it is a piece of music that many professional and amateur jazz musicians have recorded and played live as jazz music.

Newer Compositions

If you have a particular interest in "newer" jazz compositions (those from about 1970 to the present), or pop music from the rock / R&B + soul / hip-hop eras arranged for jazz performance, please let us know, and then make some lead sheets. We'll try to find a good home for your work on MuseScore.com.

LowBrassers

6 discussions • 4 scores • 57 members

I made this group to shed light on the great instruments in low brass that never really get heard over the melodies of flutes and trumpets. I won't be posting much but I would love to see what everyone can do with trombones,Bass Trombones,Euphoniums and Tubas(I'm a tuba player myself and would love to play pieces where tuba gets the melody ;) ). Also I might play a few of the pieces posted and upload to my youtube channel.

Classic Piano Collection

3 discussions • 42 scores • 53 members

Hey music-lovers, this group is dedicated to CLASSICAL sheet music for piano only, that has been transfered to musescore.
It's purpuse is to build up a collection of scores, that have been wether written directly for piano or have been transcribed by (in-)famous musicians.

The sheet music in this group should match these criteria:

-> composed for piano by classic musicians f.e 'Händl, Bach, Telemann, …
-> transcriptions of orchestrial pieces by ESTABLISHED COMPOSERS. F.e. 'Pletnev, Horowitz…'
-> trandcribed to be played by ONE PIANIST

The reason for this is, that I'd like to be this group a place to browse and discover classic compositions.
As I proposed to musescore already, a 'playback button' would even make this a more lively experience.
Enjoy, and thanx to all the contributers.

Musescore Competition group

8 discussions • 2 scores • 49 members

Every month (or other time period I choose) I will give the group a challenge and a due date for when it has to be finished.

How we determine the winner is this: Under a discussion called Votes that I will make, you can post which song you like best so far. You can only give 1 vote and It can't be your song (If you have one for the challenge). On the Due Date, I will see which song has the most votes (there can be a tie) and they will win! If there are not 5 or more votes then the competition will be extended longer 1 week so please vote. If you win your username and the song you won with will be displayed in a discussion called Hall of Fame! If I win, I will only say that I won and what song I won with in discussion called Hall Of Fame. Feel free to make any discussion, invite friends, or anything else as long as it follows the rules listed below. This is the "discipline system" for this group: If you get 10 warnings you will be kicked out of this group.

Daily Challenge Group

1 discussion • 102 scores • 25 members

Welcome all!! (Make sure to read the rules!)

This group is to challenge all of you to try writing a short 8 measure hymn like (4 part harmony using grand staff) piece each day throughout the school year! This will help you grow in many ways as a composer, for you will learn how to train your ear to create 4 part harmonies that sound beautiful, you will become a more creative yet structured composer, and you will learn how to break out of composers block!
(There are specific ways to do 4 part harmonies, but that would take too long to describe, so until you learn how to do it from taking music theory, let you imagination take over!)

- RULES of this group are as follows -
_____________________________________________
~ Only post music to the group written especially for this challenge-
(For Grand staff only)
(8 measures only)
(Must have 4 part harmony)

~ Only post a discussion that relates to this challenge.

~ It's okay if you cannot post all of them due to a non pro subscription, you can just post your favorite one(s) if you'd like!

~ Be Creative! This challenge is specifically designed to help you branch out into a more structured yet creative mindset for your compositions!

~ It doesn't even have to be good! This is just to structure how your workflow works and to help train your ear to hear things that you haven't before!
