Don't you worry 'bout a thing arrangement.

Hey guys,

So I have a problem with the arrangement I am making for a Sax Trio. The song is called Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing by Stevie Wonder, but for this trio I wanted to transpose the Tori Kelly version from the movie Sing. 

Unfortunately, I don't know all of the notes since there are no other sheets of this version on the internet. I'd hope that some of you could help me with finishing this piece of music.

Thanks to those who would like to help!!

Emotion Prompt #5

5. Terror - "intense, sharp fear or anxiety."

Things to Consider:
Think of a time when you were terrified. How did that feel? How can you incorporate that into the music?
How did your body and mind react to being terrified? Did your heart or your mind start racing? Did your breathing quicken? Did you start shaking? Is there any way you can portray this through rhythm and tempo?
Please use the description of the piece to explain how you chose to portray terror, so I can judge how accurate the music is in relation.

Enharmonic spelling

I have generated a chord sequence to practice sight-reading and I want to produce it in all keys. My problem is that I have always thought of the key between C and D as C#, yet when I load the C# sequence (from midi, which does not have key signatures) into MuseScore, MuseScore writes it as Db. I tried dropping the C# signature onto the score, which works beautifully for other keys, but when I do, it shows all sorts of naturals and flats. How can I get it to recognize and write the score as C#. (Actually, the same thing happens with F# and Gb.)  I know I should learn Db and Gb, but I just want to see them as sharp keys, not flat.

Concept Prompt #5

5. Oblivion.

Things to Consider:
Oblivion has three definitions, according to dictionary.com - "the state of being completely forgotten or unknown," "the state of forgetting or of being oblivious," and "the act or process of dying out; complete annhilation or extinction." Which definition of oblivion would you like to portray in your piece?
How can you get that definition of oblivion across? If you wish to portray oblivion as in nothingness, could it be through music with a dark tone, or perhaps minimalistic music? If you wish to portray oblivion as being oblivious, could it be through a ditzy-sounding tune?
Please use the description of the piece to explain how you chose to portray oblivion, so I can judge how accurate the music is in relation.

Anything I should arrange?

I feel like arranging something from my preferred list of games...
Either something from Octodad, Undertale, or LOZ... Any suggestions?

STUFF I WILL NOT DO:
- Any Boss music from Undertale (besides Death by Glamour)
- Any music from any Zelda game I haven't played (I've played ocarina of time, majora's mask, spirit tracks, twilight princess, and wind waker)

Well now that's out of the way... derp.

Theme started on piano by Reticular

Here's my addition to Reticular's theme with my guitar part added. I've added in new section and also Reticular wanted a violin in this piece, so I've added it but not modified the previous work. At the end of my new guitar part there is a small violin line just an short idea, more than welcome to bash new violin lines in elsewhere in the theme from beginning, and expand on my new ideas with current/new instruments.

Also I'm game for anyone else here jumping into this project too, if Reticular is, more than welcome to d/l the score and do your thing, and it gets incorporated.
I'm OK with any instrument being added in future in theory, guess everyone should agree on it, but it's a chance to experiment.

My current schedule/list

Hello again, guys. As you may know, I like arranging for piano parts and can do others as well. However, it seems like this group is growing too fast for my pace of work, which isn't a bad thing! This group just needs more arrangers and willing arrangers.

Anyways, here's the list of songs. They are in order and will be labeled accordingly:

1. Kagaribito / millstones is started.
• Need to work out issues in the beginning.
• Need to sort out left hand.
• Need to map out rest of the song.

2. I'll Find You / I forgot is done.
https://musescore.com/user/19638426/scores/5192721

3. Torment / Violet Evergarden is done.
https://musescore.com/user/19638426/scores/5196595

4. EarlyRise / Narcissistic Cannibal is started.
• Have taken notes, but not put into score.

5. Wasteland / Against the Current is started.
• No notes yet 😂

6-9.Loins / Skillet,
Far Away / Nickelback ,
Without You / My Darkest Days, and
Roses / Against the Current
are questionable.
• There are a lot of requests on top of real life matter I need to attend to, so this one is unsure. If any other arrangers are willing to take a couple of these off my hands while I try and finish the other two, please tell me.

Things are going very slow for me because I have band camp from 9-3pm, have to wait at a house until like, four PM, and do other school work afterwards. Actual school starts up on the 21st for me, so things will be a little better, but not as fast as before.

Help with Sax sound

Hi everyone! 

New to the alto sax and i have a quick question, when i go to play i have about one or two seconds of just air and then the sound comes out fine - is this caused by my breathing, embouchure or reed? I have no idea? I just want a clean sound to come out the moment I begin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! :)
