I have been trying to decide where to put this thread and this seems to be the most logical place. Many well-trained, either formally or informally, may use Sibelius or Finale to write Brass Band pieces, or Quartets, Quintets, etc. I have owned every version of Sibelius since Version 1. I used to arrange music for my church being the MD at the church. The severe car accident I was in (not my fault) has handicapped me. So, I have written a concert band piece and a brass quartet piece and self-published them on ScoreExchange.com. If you look, I have exactly one download. That is not the complete picture. When I changed my account from my name to "Culturally Free Arrangements" it reset all the numbers. My brass quintet "Dill Pickles" has been downloaded over 50 times. My concert band piece, which is free to download and print all parts and the score has yet to been used by anyone. I am on the verge of finished "Variations of a Hymn on Psalm 76" for brass band. I will finish it and publish it only because it is so close to being finished. There are hundreds of thousands of pieces on ScoreExchange. If no band or quartet plays your piece, is it worth the effort? It is a fun and interesting hobby. But if your music is not sufficient (or more likely, interesting enough) to be played, is it a hobby of futility? Do anyone else has thoughts in this area?
