I do not yet have the skills to create a fluid composition, but I have made this arrangement for my band which was in fact accepted by my band director and will be played by my band, tell me what you guys think!
This is still a work in progress, but It's probably easier if I could get some help with improvements and so on. Or just let me know what you think. I appreciate all the comments!
Here is what I have so far of my bagatelle:
What do you think? Should the bass line be flushed out? Should I continue the triplets instead of alternating triplets and no triplets in the B section?
Also, I noticed that this happened as I was composing my bagatelle:
I plan on doing it in a simple rondo form with 2 sections in C major and another section in C minor.
After Composing A section:
Wait a second, the end of the A section is not leading me to more C major, it is leading me to F major. Okay, I will do it in a more complex rondo form of ABACABA.
After Composing B section:
Wait a minute, I see multiple motives in here, more in the A section than the B section. Motives often get developed, sometimes extensively like in Beethoven's Fifth. Even with the repeat of the A section after the B section, this feels more like a sonata form than the rondo form that was planned. It is like I am hydridizing your typical bagatelle with the piano sonata. Okay, so I will have a C minor development section and possibly a coda. As long as it doesn't get any longer than 5 minutes, I'm fine with calling it a bagatelle. Maybe I should call it the Sonata Bagatelle since it is in Sonata form. But that might be a confusing title.
So yeah, what do you think of my bagatelle "Exposition"?
If you have, do you have any suggestions of something I should watch?
So, 4 years ago when I was a smol 12 year old and first started composing, I wrote this cute little piano piece. Well recently I decided to make a "new and improved" version of it. (and dedicate it to a book character of mine that I hope one day will make it to a movie :P) Let me know what you guys think!
https://musescore.com/blue02girl/scores/710266 <------ this is the old version
https://musescore.com/blue02girl/ashley_and_bennett <------- this is the new
If y'all could listen to both and compare them, see which changes you may or may not like.
This is a celebratory piece that I wrote as a thank you to my first 25 MuseScore followers. It has some medieval and baroque influences - let me know what you think:
If you enjoy listening to my music please leave me a comment to let me know!
I am so grateful to everyone who has left encouraging and helpful comments on my pieces - it makes such a difference to me and inspires me to write more music to share. :)
If I may, I would like to suggest a contest: Find the worst soundfont you can (MuseScore 1 is acceptable if you don't want to download a new one - just use oboe, accordion, or another really bad-sounding instrument soundfont), then write a short song for it and see if you can make it sound good! It can be for any instrument.
The idea is credit of Benjamin Basford (https://musescore.com/basfordmedia - discussion here: https://musescore.com/basfordmedia/moriartys-grip#comment-1049596). The deadline is August 9th, so you have a full month to do it. The judges (me and whoever else would like to be one) can enter but may not judge themselves.
I uploaded a score yesterday, but something weird happen, the piano tutorial is delayed, in the end, the tutorial end but the sound end after 4 secs! That's a bug or is that a thing in my score that making this happen?
I want to start a new marching band project and cant think of any show concepts. Please leave your suggestions in comments i would love to have source music to arrange.
