Help with harmony.

in Piano

I know basic harmony, triads, how to not make notes clash, things like that? Where do I go to learn more in depth harmonies. I listen to a lot of Bach and Chopin and I always wondered how they knew what exact notes to use and I wish to learn the same, but I don't know where to start. Things like YouTube are fun for a while but don't particularly go into any depth. Thanks, Kyle. 

John Williams Cracking Down on Copyright Infringement?

Hello everyone. I know no one has really used this group but I just wanted to talk a little about something odd that's been occurring recently. It seems that Disney/Lucasfilm has been cracking down big time on people using copyrighted music specifically from Star Wars. I just had an arrangement of the "Imperial March in a Major Key" taken down, and I noticed that one of my favorite Star Wars horn quartets on MuseScore was copyright struck and removed from the user Klevdogk's page. 4Horns' arrangement of "Jedi Steps and Finale" from The Force Awakens is gone too. In fact, if you search "Star Wars" on MuseScore, just about all that comes up is music from Rogue One, the only Star Wars movie that didn't have its music written by John Williams. Oddly enough, all arrangements of John Williams' other compositions, such as my horn quartet arrangement of Superman and Raider's March, are completely intact. I find this situation to be totally bizarre. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Send a Melody and I'll Build off of it

in Piano

Hey guys, my name is Caden. I'm 15 and have been in music since I was 9. I've written a lot of music and thought it would be fun to make continuations of other people's songs. I can write for any instruments you wish, write backgrounds, countermelodies, variations, etc... Let me know if you have any original melodies you'd like me to build off of, no cost!
