Hey so I'm trying to learn how to do some film scoring and I have Sibelius 6. I was wondering if there is a website out there where you can download silent movies that are compatible with Sibelius that you can compose music to, Thanks

^I've been searching for awhile. If you get old silent movies then the pacing wont really be right to try and score it. Best bet, find a good clip from a movie (that your not familiar with the current score) and take the sound out. Then re-score it yourself

How would I take the sound out?

You would have to use an outside program that can adjust the sound levels to mute everything. Then export that video into a fild that can be used with sibelius.

I havent had the time to do this myself yet so I dont have any specific program recomendations

Where should I go to learn some basic music theory? I'm planning on taking a class in it, but that won't be until next year. I've written some stuff, but it's not very good, and I don't really know where to go considering I barely know anything beyond reading music - and I'm not very good at that. Nothing about chords, modes, keys, scales... All that fun stuff. Suggestions?

No problem. I've only used it a couple times, but it's got everything you need.

Hey guys, I recently have become interested in composing music. Like, symphonic orchestra music. Are there any good books out there that I can start with? I have a basic understanding of music theory and chord structure, I just need somewhere to start.

How do you guys write rack percussion? I'm writing an indoor drumline show and I'm trying to figure out a good way to write rack.

How does one write battery music for repetitive music? Something like Carry on Wayward Son or Don't Stop Believing. That *beep* is all my director ever buys for shows.

Hence ram. You're ramming notes down your audience's throat.

My school does a stupid easy show for the beginning of the football season where we play pop songs and its just playing a drumset beat on a snare. Absolutely awful. At least our real show has an actual book.

Anyone else find themselves constantly writing out short melodies and a few parts with it, but then completely unable to continue it into a full piece? I do that too much...
