Critique my First Ever Piece

Hello Musescore! 
I am a piano player and am very much new to composing. What I have here is a short little something I came up with on the piano and decided it sounded like it would be good for some strings. I have never written for any stringed instrument. Please give it a listen and tell me your thoughts whether you think there's some potential in me as a composer. Thanks a bunch!

I can try your piano concerto!

 Hello everyone!
I want to play your original piano concerto! I have always wanted to play a concerto, and I think I can do us both a favor by giving a mini "commission" for your piece! After I learn it, it will go on YouTube:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrJfro6oZaixMDVF-FgOtMw?view_as=subscriber

I do have a few requirements:
-Please keep it under 6 minutes long. This can be an extract from a movement, but preferably an entire movement so that the video sounds complete.
-THE PIECE HAS TO BE PLAYABLE! I WILL NOT play a seemingly impossible (or impeccably difficult) concerto because I can't and I am not a virtuoso pianist.
-Please upload a score without the piano part. I will be uploading it to YouTube so I need a track without the piano part in it (as well as one with it, of course!). This means I will need you to upload a score to Musescore without the piano part for me to practice with and also so I can get an MP3 with only the orchestra.
-I will only choose one concerto to play. Since there are so many great composers on Musescore, I think I should run by a LOT of pieces. For that reason, I will have to pick only one piece for a commission.
-It must be original. I don't want to play a concerto that is almost identical to one that already exists. This means I won't accept transcriptions or anything like that. I want all of the composer in this concerto.
-Cadenzas are accepted. I can definitely play a cadenza for a concerto, but I strongly prefer a piece with orchestra.

I don't know how long it will take me to learn your concerto. I will definitely focus on making the most out of this experience for you AND me.
Also, if I don't pick your concerto, I can still upload it to YouTube if you want! I can post a MIDI visualization like many of my other videos on the channel.

Let's make this event a good one! 

Join the Piano for Us group for a New Essemble

in Piano

Information: I was recently thinking about a collaboration we could do here, on Musescore. I was thinking we could gather a bunch of musicians who play instruments other than than piano (we'll also need one pianist) to perform a sort of group piece for a chamber ensemble. We'll also need someone who has a video editor that can combine multiple solo performances and make one group video. We are still thinking about what to do with the video.
1. We're not looking for any specific skill level, you just need to have some experience.
2. We unfortunately can only take at most three players for each instrument, so we don't too many of the same one.

I think this should be a fairly fun project, and we're accepting volunteers now!
Please reply to this discussion if you want to participate or if you have any questions. :) Please Join :)

First Group/First Post

Hello everyone; this is the first group and post for me. I began teaching myself music composition last October(2018). I've posted 4 pieces as of today- two are piano pieces: Nocturne 1 in F Major and Nocturne 2 in G Major, have listened to a bunch of others and now feel comfortable enough to ask for any and all comments from you folks here in 'Short Pieces For Piano' please.
