About this group
When you join this group you can either write an original piece of sheet music, arrange a piece of sheet music written by a famous composer by either making it a different style, like a ragtime Beethoven's 5th, or arrange a piece to make it easier, transcribe a piece for different instruments, or copy a piece of music written by a famous composer. If this all works out and enough people join the group, than we will vote on a committee of 10 diverse composers to go through all the scores submitted and favorite the ones that they like. The 15-25 scores with the highest ratings will be formatted to be very easy to read. About 1/10 scores should be copies, 1/5 transcriptions, 3/10 arrangements, and 4/10, original scores, but that may be altered if we don't get enough of one type of score.
Must be readable, it doesn't have to be fancy unless you want it to look that way (we're going to format it), but we have to be able to read it to format it.
Only one score per user, and dummy accounts count, we don't want to clog the songbook up with one persons work.
Try your best, don't whip a score up in one day, you don't have to worry about time. Once 20 scores have been entered, I will set a due date for submission, but you really should show your best work, after all, if we can figure out some way to sell the song book, we could be famous. If you know you can't finish by the due date, tell me, and you can submit what you have. If we like what you have and it becomes one of the scores to be published, you can finish it after. You can also use scores you have already put on Musescore.com, but just remember, if you do that, choose your best, maybe edit it a little bit to make it better.
Don't post scores in this group that you don't want to submit. If you submit more that one piece with out telling admin, all your pieces in this group will be removed.
If you are interested in, choosing, formatting, publishing, or making video scores of the pieces, contact an admin on there account, and we will consider. If you want to help choose the pieces, I will make a ballet for everyone who wants to choose, and everybody in the group will choose their favorite candidate, except (if they're running) themselves. In terms of formatting, publishing, or making video scores, compile a job description of why you want that job, why you think you should have that job, and a piece of work such as, you playing an instrument, some thing you've formatted, or ideas for publishing, and sent it to an admin on their account.
In terms of video scores, we will try to gather any people who can play an instrument to practice and play a piece. If you are writing a symphony, I will hunt for a really good sound font to publish it as, or maybe if somebody already has a good sound font that costs money, they could make a video score for that piece. If you are writing a concerto, the part that a symphony orchestra would play, would be done by a sound font, and the solo instrument part, would hopefully be done by a real person.
In terms of multi-movement pieces, such as symphonies, concertos, and sonatas, The page limit is 10 pages, not counting the title page. I would suggest you only publish one movement, unless your piece is really small and you can fit all the movements in the size limit. The same goes for large single movement pieces. Also songs should be over 1 minute, and under 10 minutes.
If you are not pro, want to keep all the songs you have on your account right now, and are not using an existing piece of sheet music, create a discussion titled _________'s score (Your username goes in the blank). The committee that chooses the sheet music will comment on that discussion if they favorite it or not.
If you want to make a video score of your piece to try to encourage favorites, go right ahead. I'd actually encourage that, to know that what sounds good on Musescore, doesn't sound good on actual instruments.
Please join, and keep writing music!!!
