Yeah, which one of them all is your favourite?
Hey I've been playing French Horn for a while but I don't know any of the fingerings lower than F3, can you guys help me?
Hey, I know that this is for horn players (which I am), but are there any mellophone players here? And if there is, any advice because I really want to expand my range. My mello is in the key of b-flat.
I play 14 how many in total do all of you play?
Hello there! I was wondering about what everyone's range was. I am so self conscious that I have a tiny range. I also find that for big concerts where we play 10-12 pieces I can barely hit high notes at the end. I was looking for tips on how to expand range and build better endurance. Anything will help!
I'm thinking about publishing my stuff on Jwpepper.com but i need to know if my pieces are good enough for that. Here's my new song https://musescore.com/cooldog511/scores/5047623
Its kinda copyrighted but i think i can handle it maybe
Hello and Welcome! I would like to see how long you people have been playing the horn. There are not many horn players in my city, so I would like to find others who play the horn(Not in person, online! :) ).
So I will start.
I'm a beginner. I started playing a month ago. I play the violin, viola, mandolin, clarinet, and horn.
Who here loves the French Horn but absolutely hate the spit getting into your horn and struggling to get it out?
This is the first composition I have ever made, and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. It would be really cool if I could turn it into a full concert band piece. Any pointers before I start transposing?
I was thinking about trying to get money to buy a new, professional horn, and I was wondering what kind of horns are the best. I know that the Berlin Phil plays on Alexander 103s, and they always seem to get good reviews, so I would definitely look at those, but I also know that there are other fantastic instruments and the Alexander might not be the best fit for me. Right now I play a Holton H179, and it works quite well for me, but I have college auditions next year and then college itself, and I think that a better horn would be beneficial.
I was looking online at alexander 103s, just for fun, and I saw that there are several different metals that they use. Each has its pros and cons, but I couldn't find which most people prefer.
If it helps at all, I prefer playing high horn (1st or 3rd).
I'm glad to find such a large group of my people! So now an actual discussion question. I am trying to play this piece here ----> https://musescore.com/user/5473921/scores/2030666 and measure 27 etc. is killing me! I can move my fingers fast enough, but I cant move my air fast enough. Any tips?
Right, so I'm just starting off on trombone. I've never played a brass instrument before this, just woodwinds and strings.
Howdy, I'm new here so heres something about me. I have been playing horn for around three years. Its not the only brass instrument I play, but it is superior to the rest. I am about to go in to college as a Music major. Thats me, for the most part. since I have only been playing horn for three years, I am far from knowing everything. So I would love to hear any tips, tricks, or facts about horn, I'm all ears. Anyway, thats me.
I was requested a brass quartet arrangement for a Stardew Valley song (the arrangement is here : https://musescore.com/user/5174461/scores/3443856). However, I know close to nothing about theses instruments. I asked the "requester" (is that a word ?) for some feedback but it's been something like a month so I'm not sure I'm gonna get any... I'd still like to finish this arrangement properly so here I am seeking feedback :)
I've already been searching the web for advices but I'm not sure theses replace real experience with the instrument.
Some of my worries / concerns :
Some things may be weird, unplayable, and so on. The song is very rhythmic focused, so I think it's important every player can play his/her part very accurately, or the whole thing will
feel unstable - which is why it's not a good thing if some part are weird to play (some percussions would remove this concern, but it wouldn't be a brass quartet arrangement then)
More precisely :
- if there's not enough time to breath
- if a part isn't in the good range for the instrument (too high / too low / makes thing too difficult)
- if a part is just too quick to be played accurately
- if a part is too tiring for the player
- if a part is assigned to the wrong instrument (another instrument would play the part more easily)
In particular :
- measure 5-9 : not sure whether tuba or trombone has the easiest time for this part. It seems to be more in tuba's range but can definitely be played a bit higher if needed.
- measure 10-17 : same as above for tuba/trombone (for both parts). Also I removed a lot of stuff from the bass line (played by trombone) in order to make it more playable, but maybe that's not enough or is not necessary
- measure 18+ for trumpet : is that even remotely playable for trumpets ? Is it too tiring on the long run ? (i.e. I should switch the trumpets often, or even shorten the whole thing because it repeats a lot in the original song)
- measures 26-33 for tuba : is that too quick ?
Thanks a lot !
I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.
I'd just like to congratulate the group for hitting 100 members :D
My new album "Rag Tales" is out now. You can find it on Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, and Google Play among others. I got started right here on Musescore when I was invited to the ragtime players group. Please check it out. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you friends. Just search for " CJ Brandt" or "Rag Tales". Thanks again
