Okay, I know this has been a topic already, but I NEED some disney flute songs. ANYTHING from any movie is good. Please no piano music! I can read it, but I can't really play that low! Websites are good, because my email is acting funny right now, so I can't receive any. HELP!
BTW, I'm a GUY that plays the flute. If there's anyone else out there that's like me, let me know.
Apparently, "Summers" has made it seen like I don't know how to shop. Well, If you see this again, just so you know, I've reported you for being rude. Thank you and have a nice day.
I appologize. I didn't know that it was illegal. You see, I'm a teenager and don't know about all the confusing copywrite laws. Once again I apologize, and Thanks for your replies!
Music4god, please don't send out copies of music like this. By giving away free copies, you take money from the composers and publishers, which in turn means that we all have to pay higher prices for music. It's a lose-lose situation. And Summers, I understand your sentiments wholeheartedly, but many people who request free music don't realize that what they are asking is illegal. Your posts are becoming increasingly hostile, and until you're sure that they've consciously done something wrong, the requesters don't deserve that. Explaining what's wrong with the situation can do a lot more to solve it than just telling people not to ask for free music.
dear flutist06, so you are saying that these requesters are unable to read? there are several posts on this, one near the top that i recently wrote. hostile? after about fifty times? i would say so. i wish i had the patience to answer every one of them as you have nicely, but i don't. it floods the forum.
"Explaining what's wrong with the situation can do a lot more to solve it than just telling people not to ask for free music."
I just think it's unrealistic to expect them to search through the forum. Even long term users rarely do that, and most of these people are here to get their music and then disappear. And I'm not saying that the requesters can't read, but many of them are younger musicians in their early teens who simply have no idea that copyright laws exist to protect this music. In that case, it does them a disservice not to explain why they can't get free music. I would like to see a sticky-type post on this subject as Kara has suggested, but until that happens, as veteran members of the board, I think it's our responsibility to reply to new posts as respectfully and informatively as possible. If your patience level doesn't permit this, perhaps you could just point out that a search fuction exists, and suggest they use it, and then leave it at that.
I have no intention of turning this into an argument, so this will be my last post on the subject. As a new member here only in search of music, I am not going to go reading through all the posts (incidentally the one with capital letters is not the first anyway). I'm going to be looking for the "new topic" button so I can make my request and be done with it. I believe age is an excellent excuse. You can hardly expect a 12-year-old to be well versed in law, especially as it relates to music, as most people in public schools don't even get into music until maybe 10 or 11. At that age, most people don't even consider potentially major repercussions of something as small as posting on a website. Clearly we're of different views on this subject, but they deserve as much respect if they're 11 years old as if they are 50 years old, and your recent posts on the subject of free music (regardless of how helpful similar previous posts may have been) have not shown this respect to the posters. I would ask you either to post respectfully and informatively, give up the subject and refuse to post in those topics, or point out the search function without becoming hostile.
the only one being hostile on this seems to be you. I don't appreciate your bossy like behavior. please don't tell me how I should act. you are not the owner of this forum although it is clear you seem to think differently.
anyway, back to subject I'm a guy flute player as well. There is one disney song on this website, its the waltz from sleeping beauty. other than that there is a disney music book i've seen which has a variety of songs. you can check your local msic store or ebay for it.
1-I'm also a male flutist. (There are a lot of us about.)
2-I still (and will) pay for my music, CD, sheet or otherwise.
3-Having said that, the header when you go to 8notes pages is:
"Welcome to 8notes - Free Sheet Music, Riffs, Lessons and Tools for musicians who play"
so it is not very surprising that if people can't find what they are looking for they go straight to the forum and post.
4-Not everyone (myself included) knows how music copyright works, especially when it comes to sheet music, and copyright expiration dates. For example Beethoven's music is itself no longer covered, but specific recordings are. What about different editions of it on paper? I have no idea. Certain Disney songs must now be approaching the end of their copyright. But does it end a certain time after the death of the copyright holder (Disney Company) or the composer? Tricky.
5-I noticed that the original poster here referred to having the music for Piano, but not being able to play that low. Indeed. I think it would be very useful to have some tips about transposing music for different instruments. That would make a lot more music available.
Also, let's try to be nice, and to avoid flaming new members (or anyone else for that matter)...
Trasposing music is a simple matter if you have Finale, for example. But this SW is veeery expensive (600$ price tag, though there are legal CDs selling in Ebay for about half the proce 8probably used, but OK).
A solution could be to reenter (by hand) the music on the free and legal Finale Notepad. But then one must have some composing skills and knowledge to be able to do that.
It would be nice if the Forum site could support such a service, if only for small sections of music.
