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.

Thank You All In Advance,
D.E. Palm

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.

Waltz in the form of a Sonata

I just had this idea come to mind. What if I combine the Waltz and the Sonata? Here is my proposed form:

I call the piece that I am composing, Valse Quasi una Sonata, which translates to Waltz almost like a Sonata. As you can see from the image, I use the Dominant more as a bridge than a true Dominant. This is how I bridge to the Subdominant with the Dominant:

C major -> C minor chord(or the note Eb) -> Bb major

I have this bass pattern occurring throughout the piece:

Root, Chord, Chord

Often the 2 chords will be an inversion apart, but when the right hand gets into the bass clef, the chords are sometimes the same. The Root is usually at least a fifth down from the first chord, but particularly with the F major chord, I find that I can only do that when the melody goes up high. If it stays in the first octave, I have to have the first F major chord be in first inversion, a third up from the root. The hardest part I have found so far about composing this piece is having the rhythm of the Waltz and the form of the Sonata, while keeping the piece coherent.

So what do you think of my idea of combining the rhythm of the Waltz with the form of the Sonata?
