H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Volume 2 (a different Score)
"Oh another thing: in your score you should indicate how many flutes, clarinets, tubas, etc., you are using. If you have only one flute or one clarinet, then what you have now should be OK.

H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Volume 2 (a different Score)
"Hi Steve, sorry for the slow response, I just saw this just now when browsing through older discussions.
The score certainly looks better now, as far as instrument order and barlines are concerned. I still find it a bit jarring to have instrument…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion A helpful cheat sheet i made regarding orchestration/composing
"I think seconds opposite firsts make the most sense, especially in pieces like the finale of Tchaikovsky's 6th, where the score doesn't make any sense otherwise. (The melody notes alternate between 1sts and 2nds, a very strange way of writing unless…"

Michael Lofting replied to Steve Yee's discussion A helpful cheat sheet i made regarding orchestration/composing
"Steve's arrangement is standard for the Berlin PO although I have also seen the basses behind the seconds (conductors whim?).

H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion A helpful cheat sheet i made regarding orchestration/composing
"Just noticed in the diagram on your cheat sheet that you have the violas on the far right and cellos between the violas and the winds. Seems a bit of an unusual arrangement; I'm more used to seeing the violas and cellos swapped, e.g., cellos on far…"

But anyway, here's a similar chart that I found very helpful when it comes to orchestration: http://forum.makemusic.com/attach.aspx/27785/Instrument%20Reference...
It gives you the right instrument orders,…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Feedback
"The usual convention is to put the instrument names on the left of the staff on the first page, and on subsequent pages abbreviations of the instrument names in the same place.  Here's an example from my fireworks contest entry this year. On the…"

Steve Yee replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Feedback
"Thank Both of you so much for such a great detailed feedback!  I will definitely take this all into account on my next revision.  Is it standard then to have the names of the staffs below the staff?  I have mine above, and it seems to have caused…"

Nicholas Kelly replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Feedback
"Nice melody and atmosphere. This would work well as background for a video game, movie, etc. However, as a piece of music to be listened to on its own, I think it could do more to hold the listener's interest. For example, I got very tired of…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Steve Yee's discussion Orchestration Feedback
"Very nice melody!  Quite chinese in flavor, and might work well as a soundtrack to a chinese soap opera, or something like that. :-)
The score needs work, though. Some notes regarding the score:
- Clarinets and horns are transposing instruments.…"
