Feature request for groups

It would be really nice as an admin, if we had a feature to search users in specific groups we admim. Maybe if there was a search bar on the members page or something.
This would be extremely useful though. I’ve been trying to clear spammers (weddings and such) In huge groups like Video Gamers, and Short Pieces For Piano.
If we could search a user, and then have the option to remove them or make them admin, that would be great. Because I’ve been really tired of just scrolling though page after page to hopefully find an account I’m looking for.

Sonata in progress, want feedback

I am recomposing my third piano sonata. I lost it when my dad's old computer died. So far, I have the introduction composed with a simple scalar octave figure in the right hand and the melody in the bass. I have an accelerando as well as the average note length getting faster to build up tension. That sudden forte chord is on purpose. Not just for sudden dynamic changes but also to give a sense of release after the lengthy, accelerating, piano passage.

I am dedicating this sonata to Ludwig Van Beethoven, so it makes sense to borrow Beethoven's techniques like the sudden dynamics. I would like some feedback on this introduction. Here's the link:

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" and Admin/Judge

The wait is over! The first competition is here!

That didn't take long! Thank you to everyone who has joined the group in the last 24 hours or so. :D

So, I have a couple of things to talk about, the first is announcing the competition, the second is regarding Admins and Judges etc, so I want to quickly apologise for the lengthy post.

But let's start with the fun bit!

CCC#1 - "The Watzmann" by Caspar David Friedrich.

"The Watzmann" is a painting by artist Caspar David Friedrich, made in the mid 1820s. It is a fantastic landscape painting, and although I know nothing about art, I absolutely love this painting.

This challenge was inspired by a composition task I was given at school, where we had to write a piece of music inspired by a painting. I chose a different painting by Caspar David Friedrich, which inspired me to look up some more of his art to use for this competition.

So, the challenge is fairly simple: Write a piece of music inspired by this painting, "The Watzmann". I look forward to seeing what you can come up with.

A few quick rules/details:
1) You may use any ensemble of instruments.
2) The piece must be between 1.30 and 5 minutes long.
3)  The piece must be original, not an arrangement.

You will be given a mark out of 10 for your piece, along with some feedback. You have until Sunday 19th May which gives you one month to complete the piece. I will announce the winners as soon as possible after that.



Admin / Judge

So, basically, if anyone would like to be an admin and judge in the competition, please message me. Your job will be to help me mark the scores, and make sure the group runs smoothly. Obviously, you won't be able to participate in any competitions which you help judge, so sorry about that. If no-one wants to, I can do it myself, but it would make things a lot easier for me, so message if you're willing to help. Thanks!

Conclusion

There. I apologise again for the long post. I'd never get away with this on RSA. :/
Thanks again to everyone who helped boost this group to 30 members yesterday. :D
I look forward to seeing all of your entries to the competition. Obviously you don't have to, but if you are entering, it would be helpful if you could just let me know in the comments. Have fun!

Do you think EA will screw Jedi Fallen Order up?

EA has proven to ruin what could've been a great game multiple times. They don't make it as cool as they built it up to be. And in order to get the full gaming experience of something lots of times you're going to have to spend incredible amounts of money. Now with the release of the New Jedi Fallen Order game coming in November. I'm very skeptical. But EA is working with another company on this game, so I'm not sure how it will turn out. What does everybody think?  

Memory Tricks For Music?

Hidey Ho Boys and Girls

Do you have any memory tricks ( mnemonics ) for memorizing pieces your working on? Instead of just brute force repetition how do you practice the most effectively ?What ideas do you have for memorizing the circle of fifths?

I'm interested in finding ways to use brain training with my musical studies so I'm curious to find out what tricks you guys have out there.

Let er rip! 

MuseScore Android doesn't show bottom toolbar

Tapping into the score toggles the toolbars. On my phone toolbars are shown on top and bottom of the screen. On my tablet the bottom toolbar with the transpose button is missing, the top toolbar is shown.
Musecore Android version is the latest 2.2.6. I had a  V 2.2.6 before with a different behaviour.
For screenshots see here: https://musescore.org/en/node/286998

I reported the same issue before for previous versions:

App is not usable

  
I have  problems with the actual Musesore-Version.

  1. I Importet 6 Files over      ITunes. If I open the Bibliothek / Songbook  the first time, the App      shows me 6 Files. At the second time it shows me 12 Files, for the third      time 18 files ……. Then if I closed the App and look at Itunes I see 6      Files.
  2. When I open a Song, the      App needs a very long time to open it. After 70sec I closed the song and      reopen it, then it needs 2 seconds to show me the song. The file ist about      48kb.
  3. When I would do a transposition,      the box shows me not the key and I cannot transpose into another key.
  4. If I would open the      mixer, there is no reaction.
  5. I cannot close the song,      I must restart the App.

In this Version the App is not usable .

Hello?

Hey guys, so I got an invite to join this group, so that's cool. I'm Lizante, if you didn't know that already, a random Nintendo otaku who also loves anime. I play viola and will not tolerate any viola jokes unless they're genuinely funny. That's all you need to know, hope we can be friends! ^^

Why Compose In Certain Keys

Hey Everyone!

I'm working on my first few pieces and learning a lot in the process. 

I'm trying to figure out how to pick a key for a song. Is there a general rule of thumb that happy songs are written in certain keys, sad songs fit into others, moody songs fit in the rest.  

How do YOU select the keys for your songs?

Also what resources really helped you when you first started out?

I feel pretty good asking you guys, because I have a lot of respect for the songs that are posted here.

Thanks Guys
