Advice to Singers
Advice to Singers - Music Wiki
THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN POSTED TO PG
This wiki page is a clearinghouse for volunteer music transcribers working on Advice to Singers.
The project contains a number of simple, one-staff music examples, mostly scales, for which the Project Manager, De2164, has asked for midi files.
Because only midi files are requested, you can use any music notation software you like, as long as it can generate a midi file.
Just follow the 6 easy steps below to get started!
1. Go to the Music List below and claim a page by editing the wiki to add "claimed by [yourname]" next to it. (If you're not comfortable editing the wiki, please send a private message to the DP Music Coordinator, LCantoni, and she'll edit it for you.)
2. Use your favorite software to transcribe the music. Don't worry about purely visual aspects of the music - focus only on the sound aspects for the midi file. Where the tempo isn't indicated, just use your best judgment, keeping in mind that these are mostly scales for singers to practice with and should probably be at a moderate tempo.
If you have any questions about the transcription, please post them in the Music Team forum, with a link to the page image, or consult the Music Guidelines, or contact the DP Music Coordinator, LCantoni.
3. When you're done notating, save the midi file with a name that indicates the page number, and (for pages with multiple pieces) a letter indicating which piece it is. For example, the correct filename for page 76.png, first piece, would be 076a.mid, the second piece would be 076b.mid, etc.
4. If there are any printer errors or other issues with the piece that should be noted, please include them in a transcriber's note text file with the same filename. For example, the transcriber's note file for page 76.png, first piece, would be 076a.txt.
5. Send a private message to LCantoni, to let her know what you've done, how the files can be retrieved (e.g., via e-mail, Dropbox, your personal website, etc.), and whether and how you'd like to be listed in the credits for the final product.
6. Edit the wiki to note that the piece is done, e.g., "done by [yourname]." (If you're not comfortable editing the wiki, please send a private message to LCantoni, and she'll edit it for you.)
The files will eventually be added to the project's extra files for the use of the PPer.
Thanks for your help!
Below is the list of music pages, linked to the page images, for Advice to Singers. To claim a page, please click the "edit" link at the top of the page, and in the editing window add next to the page listing, "claimed by [yourname]." Then save the page. When you're done, please edit the wiki to change the claim to "done by [yourname]."
See the instructions above for file-naming and contacting LCantoni when you're done.
Where a page has multiple pieces, the number of pieces is indicated in parentheses next to the page link. When you claim a page, please do all the pieces on that page. Where a piece is continued on the next page, please claim both pages. Thank you!
