There is a free app on the internet called Anvil Studio that may help with rehearsing concert pieces at home. It enables you to select your instrument and hear it in conjunction with the others. You can increase the volume of your instrument over all the others if you want to when practising. It also allows the tempo to be slowed down to assist in your practising.
Thanks must go to Mike Leonard for providing us with this facility. The notes that Mike has produced on how to use Anvil studios are below.
The midi files below can be used with Anvil studios. Firstly you need to download them on to your computer. (If clicking on Download just starts the music playing, then right click the area where the music is playing and select "save as" and select an area on your computer to save the file to). Then open up Anvil studios and open the file you have just downloaded.
Mendelssohn - Meeresstille und gluckliche Fahrt Op 27
Wood - Fantasia on British Sea Songs
We will endeavour to add to this collection as they become available, so do keep checking! And do please get in touch if you have any other resources or information that might help us in our rehearsing. Thanks.
