Well, that sure was quick.... my second piece... A study for classical/acoustic guitar, the instrument that i really play! Dont be fooled by the simple structure because it is hard, especialy to make a good fingering (probably gonna take some notes out to make it more simple and playable for guitar). Inspired by me i guess...? I just went with my flow and followed a great deal of advice from my first piece. Structure wise i feel it is obvious - A in D locrian (say whhaaaa)/pentatonic minor as well (in some parts) with a modulation to Bb major and a bridge to section B in D minor with a bridge to repeat the study until the coda. Sounds like a boos theme who went to brasil for carnival to me lol.... but idk...well enjoy! :) Also, please leave feedback so i can see what you guys think i can do better (there is always something that can be better!) Version 1.1: Re-made the section B to add more flavour and rhythm, now it feels like it's moving rather than just giving 3 close-to random notes... it has more purpose, especially with it's connection with the meter 7/16 from the bridge... the chords were also changed from the beggining of the same section, giving the basses more work to uplift more the harmony... now it should be more enjoyable... Also made it for piano so everyone can have a feel for it...now it definitely feels like a boss-fight theme lolol Next update will be to take some notes out from some almost guitar-impossible chors (still posisble though, just requires what i imagine is more than 3 months of metronome practice...well it's a etude so i shouldn't care but i am to nice) and arrange it with fingerings for the guitar! :) Btw, if there is any guitarists (or pianists) out here, try it... i promise it won't bite! Well Enjoy!! :) João Carvalho

I'd like to hear what you think about this
This is the first composition that I made that I thought was worth putting in the public eye. I am still very new to this so any feedback you have is very much appreciated.
Also I'm stupid so I forgot to put the key signature (which is F#) lel.
Contains notes and such.
Do not put more than 3 as I cannot Handel them.
This blog looks pretty new. It sounds like it would be really good for learning piano. I think it has some interesting ideas about short, simple pieces of music. What do you all think about it? Would it be possible to use something like this to help you learn piano? Here is the website:

It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.
Edit: Link closed due to the end of the contest
This must only be for piano solo
The variation must be under 4 minutes and longer than 30 seconds.
You may use any form in your composition: sonata, rondo, theme or variations
Winners will have a follow from me and maybe have their piece placed in my upcoming Carnaval suite for solo piano.
The contest will end on 6 January (Happy birthday Scriabin!)
Extended to 10th January
Good job to MadDuck for winning this contest!
I`m working on composing a sonata. i`ve written the first section of the first movement and i need some help and tips on how to develope my theme and make the B section different from the A section. How can i develop the piece from what i already have and what key should i modulate too?
