Question...

Hi, I'm just amateur composer and I want to ask you something: From which point do you consider score "experimental"? 
Aside of that, I started composing only this year and I would really appreciate someone else's opinion about my music. If you can take a look at my scores and tell me what U think I'd be really thankfull. 
Currently I'm working on piano piece called Rain. but I feel like the tempo chnges too many times. Do you think it's a problem?

Need someone with an eye for French Horn: L'Arlésienne

in Brass

Hello!

I don't get on the forums much anymore, and this UI is garbage, but I could use a hand none-the-less.

I'm looking for someone who plays french horn specifically. Take a peek at this here arrangement:

 
https://musescore.com/thunder_skunk/l-arl-sienne-in-bb

I jammed it together from memory of playing it forever ago, snagging the main bits from ISMLP. Very often, my horn parts are the last to be arranged and usually get the worst hodge podge of voices. This is a great example of how not to write for any instrument in general, but it happens. This was in c minor, now it's in g minor, and the french horn is simply way to low.

I have a good sense of the comfort level for the other instruments as I play them, but I've done little more than fart around with horn. I'd greatly appreciate some cries of resentment and guidance on how it should be if you could.

Thanks!

musescore issue getting a composition to play

apparently, now all of a sudden, I can only get my music to play if it is the default soundfont. If I use another soundfont library such as the SChristian Collins 1.471, it just processes indefinitely when I press play. I do not see a solution to this. If I can only use the default soundfont in uploads, it makes no sense to upload anything anymore. So, unless I can fix this, I won't be posting any more. So it goes.

Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.

Trumpet Player

in Trumpet

Hey everyone!

So, I am a trumpet player (this is my 3rd year playing) who will be starting to play in the high school marching band next year! I would love to meet a few trumpet players who are around the same age and skill level as me. If thats you, lets talk!
