  1. I composed a head and made a basic arrangement for the first play-through of the head. Here I did put in some written parts for piano and bass, though that was primarily so that I could hear what the trumpet and saxes were doing in something resembling the context in which it would be played. I'm mainly wondering how difficult this is for the saxes (are all those off-beat, short notes doable) and whether this is doable for a high school jazz ensemble. Additionally, I was wondering what you think of my harmonization and the melody and what others might have done differently. I have three attachments. #104.pdf is the chart, #104.mp3 is the audio with the rhythm section, and #104_2.mp3 is the audio without the rhythm section.
  2. I mean making it sound like C minor instead of E flat major with the difference despite containing the same notes.
  3. I wanted to make a prettier piece of music than what I usually mess around with and this is what came out. I'm hoping this sounds like C minor, I'm just getting into how to make music sound minor or major or whatever.
  4. I want to see it (if it exists) and maybe suggest it to my band director
  5. This piece uses the claves, tambourine, bongos, congas, cabasa, hand clapping, and marimba. It's primarily rhythmic, so the marimba is used sparingly.
  6. I'm an amateur in many senses of the word—I have never composed in a professional or academic setting and have only begun learning some things about music theory this summer. I made this piece a few days ago and it's my longest composition, though still below two minutes long.
