Request for Music: "La Farfalletta" Violin Duet [09 Jan 2008|08:21pm]

Hello, I was wondering if by any chance anyone has the sheet music to "La Farfalletta", a violin duet found in the book "Selected Duets For Violin Vol1 First Position Medium".

I currently own this book, but I got it used and it is written in all over. I need a blank copy of the song for festival coming up, so I would be really appreciative if someone could help me out!! Thank you!!!

um, hi! [06 Jan 2008|10:15am]

Name: Sophia
Age: 14
Instrument: 'Cello

I've been playing for about three years, and performing in my school orchestra for about half a year now. =] Um, I'm still kind of new (I was shoved into the symphony orchestra since our school is suffering from a lack of cellists), so if any other cellists out there have suggestions for Brahms' Academic Festival Overture (especially some of the arpeggios), I'd be glad to hear them? Thanks so much in advance!

fellow dorkesters! (dorchesters?) [15 Jan 2007|01:01am]

Being a really cheap violist who hasn't yet broken out of Red Label strings, I am wanting some string recommendations for my next purchase (which I am planning on being a splurge, haha.)

What would you guys say are your favorite strings? And, where do you get them?

(also, who else thinks that Roth pegs are more annoying than useful?)

Name: Ruadhan J McElroy
Age: 25
Instrument: Electric viola

I'm in what passes for an experimental/avant-garde "project" (I feel dirty calling it a band, though it technically qualifies -- but it's more like Evolution Control Committee or The Tape-Beatles with original musics layered under the sound collage) called This Is Where the Fish Lives.

If you know why that name is so cool, then you're as big a dork as I.

I've also decided that it's my goal to make more "traditional" violists think I've lost my mind.  :-D

I have a sample of just goofing-off with my new amp here (it's intentionally pretty terrible, so please don't scream at me), and if you read the comments, yes, that's right, I'm thinking of getting a Talk Box or Free Speech pedal just to see how that would work with an electric viola (and, yes, make "purists" have an aneurysm).

Like I said, I'm on a mission.

Also, if anybody has a PDF of that PDQ Bach piece, “Sonata for Viola Four Hands and Harpsichord“, would you mind sharing?  :-D

hey all I'm writing a persuasive speech for my speech class on persuading people to start learning to play musical instruments. or something of that nature.

can anyone recommend me some links/books about it or something similar? I need more topics/ideas about it..the only thing I can think of right now is the Mozart Effect.

thanks if you can help!!

I'm trying to find a song...well, i've really only looked on itunes so far, and I'm not sure what to look up exactly.

What I want is the love song from Romeo and Juliet, but I don't know if there's some name for it, or exactly what I'm looking for...help? please?

Found it! It ended up being 'A Time For Us', that was what I had been thinking of. :)

x-posting to other music communities...=)
