Question...

Hi, I'm just amateur composer and I want to ask you something: From which point do you consider score "experimental"? 
Aside of that, I started composing only this year and I would really appreciate someone else's opinion about my music. If you can take a look at my scores and tell me what U think I'd be really thankfull. 
Currently I'm working on piano piece called Rain. but I feel like the tempo chnges too many times. Do you think it's a problem?

On notating Swing rhythms

I am currently polishing up an arrangement for Glorious Morning for marching band when I hit a road block. You see, The entire piece is in a triplet swing, and whenever I have encountered this in marching band I always saw it as notated how to swing the notation right next to the tempo, but the piece has the first note both held and not in some places, so how should I go about notating this? Should I stick to 4/4, and just choose one to write as a triplet, and if so, what, or should I write it in 12/8 and leave a note saying "Conduct in 4?"

Need someone with an eye for French Horn: L'Arlésienne

in Brass

Hello!

I don't get on the forums much anymore, and this UI is garbage, but I could use a hand none-the-less.

I'm looking for someone who plays french horn specifically. Take a peek at this here arrangement:

 
https://musescore.com/thunder_skunk/l-arl-sienne-in-bb

I jammed it together from memory of playing it forever ago, snagging the main bits from ISMLP. Very often, my horn parts are the last to be arranged and usually get the worst hodge podge of voices. This is a great example of how not to write for any instrument in general, but it happens. This was in c minor, now it's in g minor, and the french horn is simply way to low.

I have a good sense of the comfort level for the other instruments as I play them, but I've done little more than fart around with horn. I'd greatly appreciate some cries of resentment and guidance on how it should be if you could.

Thanks!

What are y'all favorite artists/songs?

I really really like Disney music in general. (don't judge even tho I'm a teen) XD. I also like Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots. I don't really have a favorite song tho....... Also, help. I've been bored lately and do y'all have any cheesy/corny jokes? LOL. Follow me on ROBLOX: smartypants0926. I haven't been active lately cause my dad blocked Roblox sooo. But my friend is helping me earn money on certain games while I am gone. CYAAAAA LATer!!! 

musescore issue getting a composition to play

apparently, now all of a sudden, I can only get my music to play if it is the default soundfont. If I use another soundfont library such as the SChristian Collins 1.471, it just processes indefinitely when I press play. I do not see a solution to this. If I can only use the default soundfont in uploads, it makes no sense to upload anything anymore. So, unless I can fix this, I won't be posting any more. So it goes.

Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.
