Announcement: I will be starting a new section on this blog soon called “Music Major Snapchats”. It’s basically going to be screenshots of my music-related Snapchats. Well, the funny ones at least.
Tuba/euphonium quartet music could possibly work. That’s really the only ensemble I can think of with four bass voices…
Awesome! I have spring break next week so I’m probably going to do a lot of arranging while I’m procrastinating on studying for some exams. Good luck on your recital!
Did you all know that in addition to practicing and being on Tumblr a lot, I also arrange clarinet quartets? Well, now you do. Most of the stuff I’ve done so far isn’t public domain yet, but I have some things in the works that are in public domain. If I were to start self-publishing these arrangements (the ones legal for me to publish) and selling them would there be a market for that here?
1. Use lots of air. It takes more than soprano.
2. Experiment with different amounts of mouthpiece you take in. Depending on how much you already take in, it might be helpful to take in more or less.
3. Be sure not to bite. On the larger clarinets, you need to stay more open. When you bite while playing soprano, you get a worse tone. With the larger clarinets, biting can actually cause squeaks.
Hey guys, check this out. It’s really cool. If I weren’t living on a TA’s salary while trying to pay off a clarinet, I’d totally contribute. Can’t wait for this to be released.
