Can you recommend me some pieces for viola to play alone? Maybe J.S.Bach (please don't say Prelude suite nº1) something short, about two pages, not much difficult... I hope you found something for me! Thank you! <3

Hi guys I am a intermediate flute player, please give some seggestions for sight reading peices! Thanks!
I'm a bassoon player and composer who would appreciate advice on writing for strings. Please comment some general rules and techniques for string composition. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys! This is a new ensemble I created a few days ago and we have a serious woodwind deficit as of now... we have three total woodwind players, compared to 7 violins and 14 synths.
I've posted this in a few other MuseScore groups in hopes of attracting a bit more attention to it, and it's worked so far! Here's the rest of the original post.
I'm creating an online orchestra dedicated to performing the works of young composers and putting the videos on YouTube. In the process, composers will get feedback from performers, performers will get more experience playing in different settings, and both will form connections that will be extremely useful (hopefully) in the music industry long-term! It's also a great chance for publicity.
Currently, I'm looking for performers, composers, and editors alike willing to help make this happen.
If you want to join, here's a link to a Discord server dedicated to making this happen!
In anticipation of a few questions, here's an FAQ.
How will you coordinate this?
Our current plan is to have one major piece every two months. Pieces will be member-submitted and member-selected. Parts, an MP3 of the piece being performed by synth instruments, and a metronome MP3 will be sent out. Members will have these two months to work up their part(s) and record themselves playing in time with the metronome that was sent. All members will submit their parts to an official email for the orchestra, which will be made at a later date. Editors will then take over and edit the tracks together.
It will then be posted to an official YCOO YouTube channel with credits to the composer and performers in the description.
What instruments can join?
Currently, standard orchestra and wind ensemble instruments. Non-standard instruments may be accepted, but should not expect a part in every major piece. Right now, we especially need woodwinds, specifically on flute/picc, saxophone, clarinet, and bassoon. We'd also love more low strings, like string bass and cello. But we won't turn you away if you already play an instrument we have lots of. The more, the merrier!
What kind of music will be played?
Orchestral music, wind ensemble music, chamber music, solos. We currently plan to only do original music by young composers but may be open to doing covers once the group has been established.
Chamber music and solos? How will that work?
While the major projects will happen every other month, members will be allowed to arrange small ensembles. Chamber ensembles and solos will be entirely member-run: members will choose a piece, form a small ensemble, send out parts on their own, come up with their own deadlines, and edit the audio and video on their own. Only when the product is complete will it be sent up to us admins to publish it on the YouTube channel.
Is there an audition required?
No. However, if you submit a track of low quality, it may not be used. (Low quality can be defined as: badly out of tune, very bad audio quality, not with the metronome, or played with a bunch of mistakes.)
Video? Will we have to submit videos of ourselves?
No. Submitting videos of yourself playing is entirely optional.
Do you have to play in every major piece?
Nope. We won't kick you out for inactivity.
If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer! In case you don't want to scroll back up, here's that link again.
Here's a link if you're interested but can't join the Discord so we can still get your information.
I have loved Poulenc's music (especially his piano music) since I was a small child, and I just wonder if anyone else shares my appreciation for his music.
I really would love some feed back on these two original compositions. Please let me know if I can do anything to make these better. The pieces arn't really that hard, but if there is something as is odd, please point it out.
Thanks in advance!
here is one of my works
please give me your thoughts.
I'm trying to arrange a string quartet cover of Bird Set Free by Sia and I have most of it done. I just need help with some of the parts where, in the song, Sia is just riffing and singing kind of free in the background. Her doing that makes it really dramatic and highlights the climax which is why I want to try and imitate it. But I can't figure out the notes or how to write it (the rhythms, ornamentations, etc.). So if anyone would be interested in helping me out I'd really appreciate it! Just let me know and I'll send you the piece.
There were a lot really close, so all of the numbers are pretty tight :D
so here they are!

Thank you all! be sure to watch for a summer original competition! :D
*I did average out a little bit the scoring of the scores, so some scores scored higher in caparison to others than what is written, but they all had some really great ideas!!*
You may have seen my “Shorts for Trombone.” It is by far my most popular score, probably because it pops up if you search for a lot of popular music. It has not been updated in a while and I would like to add a whole bunch of new excerpts to it. If you have any suggestions, comment them below and I will add pretty much anything.
I am also interested in creating versions of my shorts for concert pitch treble, Eb treble, F treble, and Bb treble, and a version in bass clef an octave lower than the current version so that more people can play my shorts. I am not pro, so those would be something you would have to ask for.
Here’s the score: https://musescore.com/user/2878026/scores/2800021
Now I will start going through them, and I think I will judge on a scale of 1 to 20 :D
and I will try to add a short comment on the piece along with the score :D
And I must say, it's so cool how many of you did it! Thank you all!
The order I'll be judging in: (And This Is NOT The Results in case I didn't make it clear lol ;P)
I hope to get the results out within a few days, so stay tuned! :D
Well I decided to do a competition here in the spring while waiting for the summer competition :D
you must do an arrangement of this polka type piece -
( https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/the-minute-polka )
using this template -
( https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/the-minute-polka-template )
You must be creative! this competition is all about being creative with the colors in the orchestra, the winning score will be judged on usages of color and creativity! :D
Deadline: Must submit before April 1st. (unless not enough entries have been made, then I will change it to May 1st)
Have fun Everyone! :D
(put links to your arrangements down below!)
And once the submissions are closed, I will post a score with my own Orchestration :D
My problem is that I downloaded this sheet: https://musescore.com/user/22415/scores/82413
Throughout the song, it turns E, C and A into hold notes when pressed. When viewing the sheet on the website, everything looks normal, but when downloaded it looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/4ecOzR5.png
If you were to play this in synthesia, it's supposed to look like this:
Any help? Thanks in advance.
What soundfont do you use? I tried many but still not happy. Thanks.
Can we have a thread where people post all of the different things about how to play woodwinds, starting with the basics of how the sound is produced and how the keys work, and going to various techniques such as fluttertonguing and other things? I think it would be a help for composers who want to write for woodwinds but don't play them (such as myself). I know the basics from Orchestration by Samuel Adler, but it would be nice to have them explained from actual wind players.
i am new here.
please can you hear to my music
and tell me your thoughts.
perhaps i can improve it.
So, I just hit the big 300 mark! What should I do? I Was thinking of revamping/ finishing the old old old Phantom of the opera string quartet I had done a million years ago Lol So If you have a suggestion of a piece I should arrange, or an interesting idea for an original, Then feel free to share! Thanks!!!
