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.
Hey guys! I love the program! But there's one flaw, writing a Bb Tuba part is really the same as C-Tuba. It is rather annoying because when you write a Bb Tuba part, it doesn't match the other musical parts when you test them with a MIDI file. They both appear to be tuned in C, can you fix it please?
I am working up a short concert or Suite of mostly film and television music for a performance and the ape cave near Mount Saint Helens. This is for solo tuba.I got permission from the head park ranger to play a short concert less than 15 minutes and during a time of day when there's not a lot of foot traffic, say early in the morning. After I get this entered into musescore I'll post it for you. After I perform and record it, I'll send a link.
A bit of a classic for me and I just learned how to play this so I wanted to share it with you guys. Enjoy!
This is my arrangement of the "Star Wars Main Theme" by John Williams from Star Wars: Episode IV, A New Hope. It is arranged for Tuba. I recommend listening to the recording provided, as some of the rhythms can be tricky at first. The piece should be easy to master after some practice. Enjoy!
This is my grand score to John William's "Star Wars" it features the 20th Century Fox Fanfare, the Star Wars Main Theme from Episode IV, The Imperial March from Episode V, The Cantina Band from Episode IV, The March of the Resistance from Episode VII, Duel of the Fates from Episode I, Across the Stars from Episode II, The Binary Sunset from Episode IV, and the Throne Room from Episode IV as well. I had fun writing this, and i hope you have fun playing it. Enjoy!
One of about 11.5 etudes I have written for tuba. I got board a few nights ago and stayed up composing since I am on break and have nothing to fill my time. This one is my favorite. It is a grade 1 solo because of the range and stamina it requires. I know it is difficult and if you feel you must point it out to me please feel free to do so! I try to write at my level for tuba and I can play this (barley I might add) so I like to call myself a very well rounded tuba/bass trombone player. Anyway - please enjoy and comment. I would really enjoy that. -cbooth
