WE GOT 16 PEOPLE!! THE BATTLE IS STARTING!!

WE GOT 16 PEOPLE... THE BATTLE IS FINALLY STARTING!!

This battle is a tournament. I tried to make the same level of piano players against each other. (If you were playing 5 years, I put you against someone that was playing for 5 years)

1st Round: In the first round, the song i am assigning is any song you want to play. (Literally any song) 

How I will be grading:
I will be grading on how difficult the piece is and how flawlessly you play it.
I will give you a grade out of 100.
The person with the better grade moves on to the second round.

Record on a phone or laptop and upload it to your files. Then, submit it in the Google Form below. (If you have any problems message me)

The due date is Friday, November 22 by 12:00 AM (Eastern TIme) If you don't turn it in, or turn it in late, the other person will win no matter what.

UPDATE:
I made a website with all of the necessary information. It is a lot more convenient for me and for y'all.

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!

Hello Sax Players! I am from the Piano For Us Group! We (the group admins) are making an Ensemble for lots of players. We need 1 ALTO SAX AND 2 TENOR players! This is what is going to happen:  The Group Admins will assign a song and then we will create a Musescore of it. Once we have done the Musescore score, we will assign the song to everybody! Then everybody has a choice either to video record yourself play or create an audio recording. If you do a video record, when we make our final video and we combine all of the audio, there will your video of you playing! You may wonder, how will we play all on the same beat? Answer: Everybody will have a metronome on and have a earbud in their ear and play along with the Metronome. Everybody will turn in their audio recording and me and Edward and Major and Minor will make the video, OR IF ANYBODY IS A VIDEO EDITOR!! and we MIGHT make a YouTube channel and start our awesome project!

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?

Remember Guys...

When you are competing, you are to record yourself playing (with image), no audio files (cheating). Edward (possibly me too) will start to grade up to this point. You can record as many times as you want as well but can't submit anymore recordings than one. Good luck to all!!! Play your hearts out!!!
