Hi! I am a 8th grade viola player!

Hi! I am a 8th grade viola player! I am looking for a piece that I can practice and play at the end of the year in front of my teacher so that I can move up in my orchestra class. Please help me find a piece that's not too hard but can show that I am capable of playing at a 10th grade level. I would prefer that it be something modern or from a movie, but if you think it is a good piece please comment the name. I need all the help I can get. Please nothing too hard or too easy. Thanks!


                                   
                               

Please give your thoughts

Hey everyone! I am a 6th grade viola player and I wonder if its weird that I practice every day and still dislike classical music. Bach, Handel etc. were all great composers, there works are amazing, but I just don't like to play any classical music. Please give your thoughts on this issue. 

My first piano composition (2015)

My first piano composition on which I added a little improvisation part. This is my first score; I made it to try and test the software. I promise you I will post more difficult scores very soon :-)
This piece is very hard to play respecting the keys, so you are allowed to play some notes in G clef with your left hand.
Original version : https://www.jamendo.com/track/1432047/arpeges (released on July 22, 2016 on Jamendo.com)
Artist: "Vilega - piano forever"

(another) Solo composition

A song reflecting one's first love/crush. The person thinks it's unrequited but soon realises that the other person has feelings for them too. (Not based on a true story. Or is it...)

This is a very rough (finished) version of it and I'm working on polishing it. (The only reason I made this was because I couldn't sleep at 4 AM).

Any constructive feedback is more than welcomed. Enjoy! :)

Help With Identifying Age of Violin?

Hey all!

I play viola, but today I purchased a violin off of a mutual friend because I also wan't to start learning violin as well.

The person I purchased it off of said she played it in high school, and it shows. It has numerous scratches, but it has a really nice tone.

Anyways, the label inside of it looks something like this:

Karl Knilling
Handmade in Germany
No. 52615
8F

Any help would be very appreciated!

MuseScore Drumline Not Working

Hey there! For some unknown reason, my MuseScore Drumline Extension quit a few days ago, and I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both MuseScore and MuseScore Drumline. It will not play—even when I'm adding the notes in on the software—and there's no playback. I didn't do anything to make it stop working, but maybe I can keep trying to reinstall it and see if it works. If anyone has a similar problem, please let me know as soon as possible. I have a huge drumline project due, and if MuseScore Drumline does not work, I won't know what to do.
Thank you!

More Cymbal Sounds

I don't know about other people who use MDL but I think it would be great if cymbals had more options than just the six that are there. Some good ones would be:
- Crash chokes
- Hi Hat
- Tap chokes
- Sizzle sucks (also called splash chokes, sizz-ucks)
- Clicks

Examples of most of these are demonstrated in these videos:

Is there any chance that we can get more cymbal sounds in future updates of MDL?
