So I am finished with the first movement. Now that all that I have is the slow movement and the rondo, I should be able to finish the sonata in time for Mozart's birthday. Thing is, I'm having an issue when it comes to the section break at the end. I made there be a repeat at the end but with that, the section break delays the repeat by 3 seconds. Is there a way to get it to only delay it in between sections without affecting the repeats?
You may recognize this post if you joined the Get Your Music Heard! group. I've been searching for a good piano solo song that shows a degree of virtuoso, intellect and emotion, for quite some time now, and I'm wondering whether the members of this group has got what it takes to impress me! Each week I will set a particular style to follow (that is, to compose), and the style of piece allowed will change every week. Here is a guideline for some simple rules to follow:
1. Instrument: Piano Solo only
2. Duration of piece: Maximum of 7 minutes
3. Style of piece that is allowed this week: Impressionistic and/or Etude
4. Only one piece per person per style
5. How to leave the comment:
Example -> Etude:
Example -> Challenge accepted: (add link)
The submitted piece must be at the same difficulty and/or harder than these pieces mentioned:
1. "Prelude to the Water Sprites" from Prelude to the Water Sprites/The Water Sprites Allure and Curse by The Curious Guy:
2. "Splashes" from Reflections: A Suite of Picturesque Experiences by Skylighter
3. "Prelude in G# minor" by trngl
4."Etude in B major" by JustisB
5. "Paraphrase on Carol of the Bells" by yesverymuch
CHALLENGE(S) OF THE WEEK:
a) Do an Impressionist music representing the sea that is harder and/or equal to Prince781's At Sea -> link: https://musescore.com/prince781/at-sea-wip
b) Do a etude for the left hand only
I will personally rate them from a scale of 1-5. I rarely give a 1, but it's also very hard to earn a 4.5 to 5. The winner is the one with the highest rating in the week, and those with a score of 4.6 and above will be featured in the following week's contest and may possibly judge the next style's contest. I hope you join, and I look forward to listen!
Okay so, I know this isn't technically a choir thing, but I really need opinions on a song I just finished writing, because I feel like there is something weird about it, but I can't really think of what it is. Does anyone know what I should do? Please leave suggestions, I honestly don't know what to do.
Hello, I'm still composing one music everyday, today is day 21, and I wanted to share this piano Etude, the playing isn't perfect (human playing) because I also had to learn it in one day :)
If the human playing doesn't work, here is the Youtube link : https://youtu.be/JSf1VyuxUqo
This is the first solo piece for piano that I have created, and I would love some feedback!
Someone PLEASE make Nothing's Stopping Me Now by Vicetone. THANK YOU!!!
I have just uploaded a new composition - a waltz this time, instead of a prelude. This is the first waltz I have ever composed and your opinions would be valued.
Here's the link:
This is kinda my first time ever doing witing an arrangement using music theory. Nevertheless this was fun to make. Kinda will give your hands and fingers a bad time though.
Hello everyone! I'm Meowsmallow Peep and I'm new! Someone PLEASE tell me HOW do you make a score???? I have composed a song that was by me, BUT I CAN'T MAKE A SCORE!!!! Thanks for helping!
And yet another #MuseScoreMonday!
Check out this traditional solo for snaredrum and bassdrum!
Hey so do anyone have any tip on improving on composing? What are some things that I could do to get better. Thanks
Put your New Year's resolutions (if you do that) and what presents you get!
I hope for this group to get to about 50 members by 2020!
If you have anybody that you would like to invite, please list their names here, or if you would rather make a new discussions for it, it's all your choice!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
So I am thinking of transcribing the Nutcracker Suite for piano duet. I think I can still get the Mozart dedicated piano sonata finished by Mozart's birthday if I focus more on the sonata during the day, when my dad isn't using his computer and focus more on the transcription at night. Besides, I have the development section almost finished, a milestone for me in sonata composition. So I basically can dedicate the rest of the month of composition to the second and third movements since the recapitulation will be super easy and I could do it within minutes.
The reason I am going for a piano duet? I have seen the piano solo transcriptions and boy do they look hard, especially all those fast scales. I think it would be easier for a pianist if there was a duet version. Also, there is only 1 piano duet transcription of it on IMSLP, most of them are for something like 6 cellos, or some other instrument group or are single movements. So I figured I could have a go at transcribing the orchestral score into a piano duet score. I also figured I could make it sound richer but still playable if I go with a duet transcription.
So hopefully I can get this transcription done. But I am not forcing a deadline on this like I am with the sonata. I am just hoping I can get it all transcribed.
Main themes from Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 first movement arranged for piano solo
This is my first arrangement. Any feedback would be appreciated.
