Viola/Bass duet?

Would anyone happen to have any viola and bass duet pieces? Me and my friend are looking for something that is beginner-intermediate*, and the bass part does have something more than quarter notes. I'll also be okay with a Viola/Cello part, as long as it doesnt go below a low E. Thanks!

*We've been playing for about six months, and the hardest we've done is doing Moana songs (like 4 songs in one score). I'm sure we could also figure out a intermediate piece too.

Composing a String Quartet, want some feedback

So I only have a few measures of a first movement but I hope to expand this into a full 4 movement string quartet. Thing is, I find it hard to get the combination of being in sonata form and still being interesting when it gets past duets into trios and quartets. I know it should be easier because I have more freedom with a string quartet than with a piano sonata but no, I have always found piano sonatas easier to compose.

Here is my first draft. You can see that I go from a Tutti to the cello playing solo which really brings out the warm sound of the cello. I plan on having the other instruments come back one by one until I reach Tutti again. So here is the link:

Wind ensembles accompanying a solo double bass

Hello dear woodwinds,

There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:

Electric Violin Duet

Hi everyone! This summer I will be competing in a show with a friend of mine and we will both be playing electric violin. We want to play a pop song but it has to be somewhat complicated. I would REALLY appreciate any song suggestions and/or sheet music. Thank y'all so much!

Tell me what you think about this song, like, right now. Or I get the belt

So, I'm a senior at an arts high school (it's called TSA look it up), and I just got into composing music last year. This song is still in progress, not all the instruments are up yet (including the second clarinet), but I know I'm a hot mess express anyway so it's honestly fine. If you let me know how bad it is I won't throw shade.

Audition Pieces

  
Hi everyone!
I'm planning on auditioning for a fine arts high-school for 10th grade, and I wondering what you guys recommend for audition pieces. I need two pieces, one contemporary and one classical.
I would say I am mid-to-late intermediate, and am in Suzuki book 3 currently.

I need two solo pieces, without an accompaniment.

Thanks in advance,
Vina (literal mochi)

Strings— need help! I need a story for a song to give to my orchestra, and fast.

I’m having a competition! Most voted original song gets to be played!

It doesn’t really matter what the whole thing is about. It’s just gotta be like a story... I need strings, brass, and everything. Like Peter and The Wolf, you know? Each instrument representing a different character. I don’t care what the theme is, and heck, my teacher might not like it and no one might vote— but this could be fun. He recommended me using this so I can find some great song writers.
