Critique my First Ever Piece

Hello Musescore! 
I am a piano player and am very much new to composing. What I have here is a short little something I came up with on the piano and decided it sounded like it would be good for some strings. I have never written for any stringed instrument. Please give it a listen and tell me your thoughts whether you think there's some potential in me as a composer. Thanks a bunch!

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.

Waltz in the form of a Sonata

I just had this idea come to mind. What if I combine the Waltz and the Sonata? Here is my proposed form:



I call the piece that I am composing, Valse Quasi una Sonata, which translates to Waltz almost like a Sonata. As you can see from the image, I use the Dominant more as a bridge than a true Dominant. This is how I bridge to the Subdominant with the Dominant:

C major -> C minor chord(or the note Eb) -> Bb major


I have this bass pattern occurring throughout the piece:

Root, Chord, Chord


Often the 2 chords will be an inversion apart, but when the right hand gets into the bass clef, the chords are sometimes the same. The Root is usually at least a fifth down from the first chord, but particularly with the F major chord, I find that I can only do that when the melody goes up high. If it stays in the first octave, I have to have the first F major chord be in first inversion, a third up from the root. The hardest part I have found so far about composing this piece is having the rhythm of the Waltz and the form of the Sonata, while keeping the piece coherent.

So what do you think of my idea of combining the rhythm of the Waltz with the form of the Sonata? 

NEED VIOLINS! Piano For Us Ensemble

Hello String Players! I am from the Piano For Us Group! We (the group admins) are making an Ensemble for lots of players. We need 2 violin players! This is what is going to happen:  The Group Admins will assign a song and then we will create a Musescore of it. Once we have done the Musescore score, we will assign the song to everybody! Then everybody has a choice either to video record yourself play or create an audio recording. If you do a video record, when we make our final video and we combine all of the audio, there will your video of you playing! You may wonder, how will we play all on the same beat? Answer: Everybody will have a metronome on and have a earbud in their ear and play along with the Metronome. Everybody will turn in their audio recording and me and Edward and Major and Minor will make the video, OR IF ANYBODY IS A VIDEO EDITOR!! and we MIGHT make a YouTube channel and start our awesome project! Remember if you do not want to be on camera, just audio record yourself! We are going to have so much fun! Please Join! The first 2 PEOPLE THAT MESSAGE ME THROUGH MUSESCORE are in!
