i am aLIIIIIIIVEEEEEE o.O

Hi! I'm alive! :D

I've not really been on here all that much, because I've been busy with three bunnies now. xD But I'm here! Speaking of the buns, though, please wish us luck or pray for Snow and Honey Bun, my two new sons. They got neutered this morning, and recovery could be difficult for them - if they don't eat soon, they could go into stasis, which if not treated means they could die. ;^;

Question: How has the weather been for you guys this past week? I'm curious. :)

For me, it's been raining almost nonstop. I'm staying in a little house on a lake right now, so half my yard is flooded right now rip :p Our dock is literally about to float up and away, the lake is so full right now.... -_-'

(ooh, and the save button for discussions is different now! it's not nice and big and blue and match-y anymore :'( ah well.)

Didn’t get to meet him after the show but this happened which I guess is equally good. Thanks dad

I went to Carnegie Hall on the 9th to see Christopher Tin conduct his song cycle Calling All Dawns (Including the theme to Civ IV(he also wrote the theme to Civ VI so that’s cool) ) and it was cool. I didn’t get to see him or get a picture lol but this happened so that’s cool I guess

bye :p

Hey, so I've been thinking about it, and I'm leaving RSA.

That's a hard decision to make, because we have had some fun times, and I've been here for so long (since way back before it became so popular and active lol). But I've been doing some thinking, and the discussions we have in here aren't what I really came to MuseScore for anymore, and I'm not even really active in here anymore either, so there's no point in me remaining.

I just wanted to say bye. It's been nice to meet you all!

Quick update about me.

So, most of you won't care, but I thought I would give a quick update on myself.

Most you know that I'm not very active right now because it's summer. I'm trying to check at least once a day though. So, if I don't respond immediately, that's why.

Also, I talked to a Physical Therapist about my neck problems. She gave me some tips on exercising it and stretching it. For those of you who said to go to a chiropractor, she said that doing that wouldn't be smart because what chiropractors do is pop it. She told me to try not to pop my neck more than once a day because it will eventually weaken my neck muscles. I think she was pretty horrified that I have been popping my neck 10-20 times a day. 
Anyway, I reminded her about the accident that injured my neck in the first place, and she said that it could have caused muscle spasms that could have move a bone out of place. Although, nothing appears to be out of place.

I'm fairly sure that it's the violin setting it off. I quit playing the violin for a couple weeks, and the pain was distinctly less and I wasn't having to pop it so much. Yesterday, I played it again, and the pain increased so much that it was almost unbearable. 
My mother said that I may just never be able to play the violin, unless I can handle the pain, which is extremely difficult. :(

Biography [6] CountryHomes

Two months ago, Diana "Reed" (better known as CountryHomes) released her twelve follower special. Honestly, she's due for another special, with a follower count now at 42. To get her thoughts on music and more, Musescore News recently interviewed her...

News: Let's hear your Musescore story. What brought you here, and did it turn out as you expected?
Country Homes: I joined Musescore while looking for sheet music, so, I guess you could say that one of my expectations was finding all the sheet music I ever wanted. I didn't know about the community when I first joined. I would say it is different [from my expectations], but not totally. I, obviously, haven't been able to find all the sheet music I ever wanted.

N: So how did Musescore help you grow as a musician?
CH: Well, before I came to Musescore, I thought that I couldn't compose. Being on Musescore, and the encouragement of other people has made me realize that I can compose. It also has made me want to be a better musician.

N: You brought up the community here; who of that community inspires you, and why?
CH: Probably, Micah and/or Lizzapie, through their music... It helped me realize that I'm not alone in this world and that God is always there for me.

N: Looking at your own work, do you have a favorite score?
CH: Well, honestly, I would say that my 12 follower special is my best, but my background music score has more favorites and comments, which may just be because it was uploaded first. My follower count went up much faster after I uploaded my 12 follower special, as I now have 41 followers and that means a lot to me.

N: Outside of Musescore, do you have any interesting facts or funny stories about yourself to share?
CH: I'm not sure. Most people probably don't know that I love puzzles.
Also, most people probably don't know that I'm a triplet. The other two are Phia and Alexis, but, we're not triplets in real life, just on Musescore. :D One of my most embarrassing moments was when my brother and I were shopping. I couldn't reach something on the top shelf, so, my brother attempted to reach it, but he couldn't either. Suddenly, this teen guy appeared next to us, and asked, "Do you need some help?" I could feel my face turning red as I stammered, "Sure." He reached it so easily, handed it to us, and started to walk off, I managed to say thank you, but, my brother and I ended up seeing him in the store later on, and we both turned red.

N: Do you use music, playing or composing, as a way to decompress? If not, what other things help you after a hard day?
CH: I play music, but, I don't compose because that's stressful for me. I also read books, and/or get on Musescore. Sometimes, I'll go on walks and listen to the birds, if it's still daylight.

N: Let's conclude with your musical aspirations. Are you ambitious for fame, or does music have a simpler role in your life?
CH: Well, I'm not one to dream of much, but, I guess you could say that I dream of being a well-known musician, that plays more instruments than the average musician.

That wrapped up our interview with CountryHomes, who may not be a big dreamer, but certainly has plenty of followers awaiting her next upload. Who knows? A 50-follower special? Check out her profile here (

thanks again to @OatmealBlondie for this amazing interview.

Scores being taken down for copyright issues??

I've had two of my pieces taken down in one week because of quote: "We received a report that your score "New Sight - UltraHQ Audio!! :D" is infringing on someone else's author rights. We have taken down this content from MuseScore for the time being." 
Has anyone else been getting their scores reported?? I've added in my deputes that this is becoming a problem.. Both pieces that have been taken down are completely original, and even when it isn't 100% original, I always give full credit to co-author and would never post something not my own or non-public domain. I am starting to get upset, especially if this is someone going around and reporting my scores for who knows what reason.
