    I am play trumpet and sing.. I am in 4 different preforming ensembles. I love to write music also.
  1. Lately I have been exploring the music of Arvo Part in a effort to expand my musical library. I try to have an open mind with most things but I am having a really hard time with Mr.Part. Is it just me or does it seem like he finds the most boring material he can get his hands on and then repeats it until the listener either dies of boredom or gives in to its monotonous demands. For example his Spiegel im Spiegel for violin and piano is very beautiful for the first minute or so but after seven minutes of repeating the same thing I kinda just want to die. Also some of his choral stuff is just so Blah to me. I don't know maybe I am missing something. Maybe if I understood more of the logic behind his music I would enjoy it more. I like to learn new things especially about things I don't understand so if you think I am wrong please enlighten me.
  2. All my uploads no longer work! This is really frustrating as you all can imagine. Please fix it!
  3. Here are some of the best Music Schools in America. San Francisco Conservatory University of Southern California - Thornton School of Music Oberlin Conservatory Julliard University of Indian- Jacobs School of Music Rice University- The Shepherd School of Music The Peabody Institute The New England Conservatory The Boston Conservatory Berklee college of music Musicians Institute LA The Colburn School And I am sure there are many others that are just as good. You have to be very good and work extremely hard to get into these institutions.
  4. Brahms just to get a better handle on form and chromatic harmony.
  5. Gezz the dead line is the same day I have a research paper due. I hope you don't mind if its a little late.
  6. Just wondering if anyone knows any good websites that provide IPA translations of arias or art songs? I have been searching all over and I can't seem to find any (at least any that are free).
  7. Well with the rate RP's are going I think doesn't seem like something people can work toward it seems like it happens spontaneously. Having a composition featured a week will give people something to look forward to and thus making it seems more attainable. I think composer of the month is still a good ide this would be just a more frequent and is narrowed on a specific composition not a composers body of work.
  8. I think it may be a good idea to have a composition of the week of the week. This composition would be picked out by the staff or other qualified members and promoted on the forum homepage (or some other way that seems fit). Its purpose would be provided add publicity for good works that often go unnoticed and to give members an added incentive to write really great works. Also it would help to showcase YC's musical diversity while exposing members to genres or styles that they may not give much time to. Anyways its just a thought.
  9. I think most people do I however don't. Lately I have been writing mainly for orchestra but I am a singer, I just find instrumental music easier to write for some reason.
  10. Agree I don't see any reason why we would not want our music heard by the greatest possible audience IMO.
  11. I would like to be in this competition :D
  12. I have recently discovered that I love Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony.
  13. Hi I just stumbled upon this site http://www.unheardbeethoven.org. Its very interesting in that it has a MIDI library of pieces by Beethoven that have never been published or recorded. I thought it was interesting so I wanted to share it :) .
  14. is poor and in college what a surprise.
