Almost reached 50 follower milestone

If you don't know already, I am now almost at 50 followers. Currently I have 39 followers so just 11 more and I will have reached the 50 follower mark. I had maybe like 4 followers 2 years ago. So clearly, I'm doing something right. My most recent score called The Storm just brought me 2 more followers. I suppose they followed me hoping to someday see the entire suite that I plan on The Storm being a part of. That suite I call Weather Music. Maybe I should compose another part of the suite for that 50 followers mark, upload it when I reach 50 followers, and then whenever I have finished the suite, upload it in its entirety.

If you want to listen to what I have so far of The Storm, here it is:

It just so happens that I have been getting rain for 3 days straight here in Ohio.

Update 1: 6/18/2019

Oh my goodness, 4 followers in a single day. That is a record for me, I am now at 43 followers. I don't know if the follower milestone or finishing the composition will come first. If the follower count does come first, that's fine. I'm not pushing myself to finish the 50 follower composition.

Check out my new personal project!

 
       I decided to write a piece with 3 completely random songs to challenge myself. I believe it will help me in the future when I write professionally and need to transition between movements. 
Please critique this piece! Or at least some feedback (thoughts, opinions, requests) would be nice. 
If you stick around for updates, expect a big run after where Moonlight Sonata left off. It will help to transition back into Hymn of Acxiom. 
Notes: 
- The harp part is a sound effect, not an actual part to be played 
- All diddled phrases are to be played as normal rolls 
- I will update sticking soon 
- This piece will eventually come full circle and will end with the ending of the first unoriginal piece 
- I changed all the settings so the sheet music would look as close to Sibelius as possible, but they don't go through well online 
- I used two soundfonts 
Pieces Used: 
- Hymn to Acxiom 
- La Marseillaise (French National Anthem, only minor section) 
- The second half of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvmt. 3

Thinking of making a separate account for symphonies

So, I have been planning out my first symphony. I gave it the nickname "The War Symphony". It still isn't flushed out yet but I have decided to have it be a programmatic symphony with this movement structure:

First Movement:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Battle
Form: Sonata Form

Second Movement:

Key: F minor
Aspect: Death
Form: Not decided on yet but I'm leaning towards ternary form

Third Movement:

Key: Not decided on
Aspect: Battle again
Form: Scherzo and Trio

Finale:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Victory
Form: Sonata-Rondo Form

The first movement is what I have flushed out the most out of all the movements so far in my plans so obviously, that will be the part I work on first. But I'm wondering, since I can't really afford a Pro membership(maybe a few years down the line I will be able to afford it but I can't currently), should I make a separate account to put my symphony score on once it is finished? And if so, should that account be just for my symphonies if I happen to want to compose more than 1 symphony?

Imagine if you could save lyrics with midi (Karaoke files) and export as 2 options: "KAR file (MIDI File with lyrics)" and "KAR file with chords"

Do you realize the numbers of  school teachers, and church choir leaders would would find this useful for teaching, conducting parishioners, choruses etc.? And why not lyrics from several voices simultaneously? Why, people might even have FUN with these files (heaven forbid)!!

Do you realize how useful these files could be with karaoke software?! I am a programmer and I see the arguments as "beside-the-point" and not at all insurmountable.  In fact, there may be no reason why more than one part's lyrics couldn't be saved and scrolled in a karaoke app in parallel.

Read my request where I address the programmer's objections. With all the lyric-typing I do I am disappointed/insulted that I can't export the lyrics with the midi. I have searched high and low and the closest software I can find to a solution is Serenade (http://www.1manband.nl/serenade/index.htm ) which is far from as perfect for this as MS would be. Please help promote the idea at (see https://musescore.org/en/node/290163 ) !!

This is a request that goes back to at least 2015 and I have formally requested this feature again (see https://musescore.org/en/node/290163 ) - to create KAR files, and kar files with chords. This would allow us to use a real Karaoke Player, such as the free van Basco player (http://www.vanbasco.com/karaokeplayer/ ) app for practice, performance, learning, teaching, audience sing-along, etc. It's high time for this feature after 10 years.
