How does my Gravity Falls theme sound?

So, because Gravity Falls is so awesome and its music is pretty dang epic, I decided to do a theme. I was wondering how you guys think it sounded compared to the real thing. I think it is decent, with a few things that COULD be edited. I do not know how to share links or anything on a tiny phone, but please check it out on my profile and tell me what you think.

Composing a Nocturne

So you know how I composed a nocturne before? It's now on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out. Here is the link to my previous nocturne if you want to listen to it:

But I am planning on composing a second nocturne and uploading it here. I know that it has to be evocative of the night but is there anything else I need to take into consideration when writing a nocturne?

Scores to check or to improve

Hello everyone, I start this topic because many times I found myself in the situation to download scores already present in the archive of Musescore and realize that they had errors in copying or input modalities that made the result unsuitable in case it should serve, as in my case for work. So I decided to post here the links to the scores that seem dubious and in case I find the related versions in pdf. I Start with the intemezzo for vl and piano by Schumann of fae sonata present at this link :
https://musescore.com/user/126936/scores/136411
Here the pdf version I found:
https://imslp.org/wiki/F-A-E_Sonata_(Various)
There is someone that can help me to verify if at least the piano part is correct?
Mostly at the end I have the impression something is missing and something is not correctly copied.
Thanks in advance

Allow PDF import to MusicXML in addition to MuseScore 3

The Import PDF feature since that produces MuseScore 3 .mscz files. Users who cannot upgrade to MuseScore 3, but are stuck on 2.3.2 (by choice or because their macOS or Windows is no longer supported), can no longer use this feature.

Suggestion: that the import site offers import to MusicXML in addition to MuseScore 3 or as a replacement to MuseScore 3, which would make the import feature usable to the above pre-MuseScore 3 users and to other non-MuseScore users.

Jazz standards transcription plan

Below are song titles from a "transcription plan" that was being pursued by this group in 2017-2018. The idea was to take the top 100 jazz standards appearing on the jazzstandards.com list and provide lead sheets. The jazzstandards.com list was  compiled statistically, and is ordered by frequency of recording (see the site for more details).

As of this writing, lead sheets for about 2/3 of the top 100 songs on the Jazzstandards.com list have been submitted to the group. (The full jazzstandards.com list includes 1,000 tunes, in case you were wondering.) At the bottom of this message are the titles that have not been done.

You are welcome to work on the remaining titles, or any other titles considered to be jazz standards (or popular song standards from the classic jazz/swing era--roughly 1910 to 1960). If your song isn't one of the 1,000 songs on the full jazzstandards.com list, it's probably not what most musicians and jazz fans would consider a jazz standard. That doesn't mean it's not a great tune, but in most cases it means the tune is not widely performed. (Perhaps we need a Musescore group dedicated to overlooked and under-appreciated  jazz tunes and traditional popular songs.) We will try to be as inclusive as possible when adding submissions to the group, while still keeping the focus on tunes that you might hear played and sung in jam sessions or on gigs by relatively mainstream jazz performers.

You are also welcome to submit improved versions of any songs that have already been done for the group. Perhaps a song previously submitted is missing lyrics, or missing the introductory verse, or has chord changes that are not widely used by musicians in performance. So far, the group has not been flooded by multiple versions of any given song--if we were to get, say, 10 charts for "I Got Rhythm," we might need to pick the best 2 or 3 for the main listing, but currently that's not an issue.

Note that if you are starting a new chart, you may save yourself some time by working with an existing "Wikifonia Archive" chart and adding your own corrections, improved formatting, and missing sections / lyrics as needed. See the following discussion for more details: https://musescore.com/groups/jazz-standards-leadsheets/discuss/5019538

To add a score to the group's collection, open the score in Musescore.com or find it in your account's list of scores, click the "three dots" action icon at the top right, and then choose type in "Jazz Standards Lead Sheets" to search for and choose this group. You can then leave a comment here with the song title and the URL for the link to let us know you've added a new score. If your chart has notable features or corrections, add a note about it when you post, and consider adding the details to the comments on the score page as well.
