Score advice

https://musescore.com/knviolain/by-the-falls

This is a little piece that I composed recently. I'd appreciate it if anyone could provide some feedback, and also maybe a name for the piece (since I haven't found one that quite fits yet...). Thanks!

Anyways, I came up with this piece after listening to Philip Glass' String Quartet No 3 - Mishima, and the simplistic style that he wrote with. I also really liked his use of polyrhythms in that piece, so I decided to try to incorporate them in this one as well...

Choral Composition Competition!!!

Hello All! I've just started a small competition for fun at this page: https://musescore.com/groups/ccc/discuss/3621921
It's for choral compositions only! There were no groups for that yet, as, as you likely know, there are only so many groups for choir music at all :/

Anyway, I'm new at competitions, but I'd love to see some of your faces there! I want to try to bridge the gap between the choral community and everyone else on musescore!

Oh, and for you pop arrangers, there is an arrangement division! (although you could also do things like my Aase's Death XD)

Thanks! Andy (Texadon, Nextadon, Hexadon, etc.)

The Best of Laugh Silly Each Month Contest

I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.

Audition help

I'm going to be certified as a piano teacher in a fall, but to be accepted into the teacher training program, I have to send in two audition pieces. Now, these are above my level (Beethoven's Sonata in G Major and Minuet I by Bach) and the judges are expecting me to perform them flawlessly, at a teacher's level, not a student's. Needless to say, it's hard work. I have about a month until the deadline, and I'm still tripping up and hitting wrong notes and hesitating and keeping the rhythm.

Do you have any tips for learning these pieces or any advice on auditioning? I need all the help I can get right now. Thank you so much!

musical chairs competition

here is an idea for a new competition
someone will start a composition with maybe 5-10 bars and then another person will continue it for another 5-10 measures, and then the next person and so on until the game will unexpectedly end (the music stops, in other words) and the last one to enter when the music stops (as determined randomly by the one running the competition) wins.
any takers or anyone want to start a piece?

musescore 2.01 comments

I realize there is likely a discussion of this elsewhere but decided to have my own discussion to keep track of issues. you are welcome to add your own comments of course.

notice that some compositions created in the older version don't open in the newer one, says they are corrupted. I realize my music is very corrupt but musescore could have been a little nicer about it all. that is just plain mean.

notice that the violin sounds a lot better, more pleasant ( I won't say it sounds more like a real violin being played because then it would sound worse, if I was playing anyway)

but also notice that the overall sound seems very quiet. I have to turn the computer volume up really high. and then if I forget and play something with the older version, I am deafened. yowza!

wonder how music made with this new version plays at the online musescore site, or does the sound balance get messed up as it does now…

haven't found how to do some things… seems they changed the layout a bit.
