Jazz Standards Lead Sheets

7 discussions • 171 scores • 1.3K members

This is a group for creating MuseScore lead sheets of jazz standards. If you have created a lead sheet of a jazz standard, leave a comment with a link to your score in the List of available jazz standards discussion thread to you have your score included in the collection.

If you don't know what a lead sheet is, see the definition below under "What is a Lead Sheet?". Likewise, if you don't know what a jazz standard is, see the definition below under "What Is a Jazz Standard?".

Feel free to report mistakes in any of the scores featured in this group.

What is NOT Included in This Group's Collection

For scores that are not lead sheets of jazz standards (e.g., solo guitar arrangements, transcribed instrumental solos, original jazz compositions, educational or music theory scores, etc.), see below for recommended MuseScore groups that might be the right place for your score. If you don't find a group that matches your score, you can create a group yourself.

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.

Saxophone Ensembles

18 discussions • 308 scores • 911 members

The group is for sax ensemble sheet music, though your score can contain other instruments as well (not only saxes), but only if these instruments are just complementary, i.e. the arrangement could be played without those instruments.

Sax solo transcriptions

7 discussions • 49 scores • 780 members

For transcribed saxophone solos synchronized with youtube video/audio. So, you can see what is played and hear how it is played, and even slow down the playback speed to learn to play it!

Post your transcriptions and use the ones that are already done.

See the top post in "discussions" section of the group for more information.

By the way, the main "Saxophone" group is here, check it out as well:
https://musescore.com/groups/saxophone

Sax arrangements

5 discussions • 150 scores • 548 members

You can post here arrangements or your own compositions of rock/pop/any other style or movies/games themes for any ensemble
which includes saxophone(s) as lead instrument .

This is the one and only criterion for scores of the group.

Enjoy posting, commenting and playing it!

Keyboard

35 discussions • 3.6K scores • 494 members

The aim is to create a repository of keyboard music composed for instruments such as the piano, harpsichord, organ, synthesiser and digital keyboard to more specialist and obscure instruments e.g. hurdy gurdy or celeste.

It is hoped that all music submitted will be performable and of a good standard.

Music can be in any style and for any level of difficulty. It would be useful if both the style (genre) and difficulty level (perhaps on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being beginner level and 10 being virtuoso) are given in the description and tags.

Piano Virtuoso

Banana group

7 discussions • 33 scores • 25 members

I have written a few compositions with the word "banana" in it. Banana refers to the fruit or to music that is bananas. This all started because the Downy Yellow Dingle Dork (.a famous bird who even was even in a musescore opera) loves bananas. Submit any composition with a fruity silky amusing funny theme or jwhat themheck, put anything in there because I may think it's funny. I laughed at Beethoven and Mahler (especially Mahler) so your may seem amusing also. I try to comment on every piece. hey, fuss at me if I forget and don't comment.

Handbells!!

1 discussion • 23 scores • 15 members

Hello! I'm lareinedeslapins, a handbell ringer/arranger/composer and overall handbell enthusiast! :)

I've noticed that handbells is only a very small corner of the music world. :( This makes me sad, since handbells are an absolutely beautiful instrument. So, here I am, trying to add to that corner and make the handbell community just a little bigger, as well as unite us together to share advice on ringing handbells, writing for handbells, or just life in general!

Feel free to post any scores or discussions related to handbells (or even not related to handbells - just please no spam or anything hateful)! If you have any good soundfonts, tips, favorite songs, upcoming concerts - anything - I'm sure that we would love to hear about it. :) Likewise, if you have any questions, I (and no doubt the others) would love to try to answer them.

We are all here to help each other grow as musicians, so please, no hating, fighting, or anything of that nature. I love you all, and it would be nice if you could all love each other, too. <3

Lastly, have fun, and happy ringing! :D
