Church Organ Mus8c

Am I the only person here who thinks that Mario Bros and it’s variants isn’t the place for Church Organ Music but TV, Film, and Games.

Also how many variants can you have on a theme of Mario Bro........

Not being fuddy duddy but when I look at a group called Church Organ Music I’d expect to see hymns, psalms and organ music which is public domain.

[i] Mr. Peabody, winner of RSA Contest 6

in MNGA

The MNGA staff took a moment to interview  @Mr. Peabody (https://musescore.com/user/24544561) after the RSA announced that he was the winner of RSA contest 6. The results are as follows: 

Where did you get the inspiration for your piece?

I don't know if I had any real "inspiration" for my piece...there was no  catalyst that sparked the writing process. Instead, when I saw the  contest and decided to join, I just sort of decided to write a piece  that sounded cool. That was my only goal, you could say. 

Can you play Tempest as it sounds on Musescore? 

Can I play my piece? Well if I practiced and decided to learn it, yes I, could play it. But right now, a tempo, no preparation? No way lol

Why did you choose to write Tempest in A minor? 

Interestingly enough the piece was originally in B flat minor. However, before I uploaded it I wanted to see what playing it was like.  Needless to say, while I think it still fits the piece better in terms  of sound, it was a decent amount more annoying to actually play. Thus  the piece was transposed into A minor.

By the way, what's your favorite key to play in and your favorite key to compose in? 

My favorite key to play in? B major. It's the most comfortable, if you will, key to play in in my opinion - the long fingers usually play the black keys and the short ones usually play the white keys. It makes playing fast passages in B major way WAY easier than something like B  flat, the worst key to play in IMO.
My favorite key to compose  in...maybe D flat? I like D flat a lot. Also G sharp minor is nice but I seem to be the only one who thinks that haha.

You just passed 200 followers. Are you going to give us a 200-follower special?

Well, about the 200 follower special - I've been planning to upload  something for that for a long time but nothing is really ready now...I  AM working on something really big (a concerto) of which I'm probably  closing in on the half way point of the first movement. I'll hopefully upload that before the end of the year lol...maybe by then I'll have  250? Maybe even 300?  

To be honest, as soon as I saw your piece, I was like, this is the winner. Did you  write tempest specifically for the contest, or did you already have some of it together before hand?

I wrote tempest specifically for the contest. I'm glad you enjoyed it! 

Is there anything else you'd like to say about Tempest?  

Anything else I'd like to say about tempest...If any of you do decide  learn it please make sure to record it and send me a file! I'll upload  it along with the score and of course credit you! 

Thanks for your time, Mr. Peabody!

Composing Playoff Contest

A composing playoff is a contest with 3 rounds (sometimes more depending on how many people enter on the first round). The first round anyone can enter their pieces in. When at least 5 people enter the contest, a few members (selected by me) will judge the top 3 winners. In the 2nd round, the top 3 will then compose another piece for the round. Then the same judges will judge the top 2. Then in the 3rd round (the final round), the last 2 winning contestants will compose yet another piece. Then the judges will judge the 1 winner of the round. The judges will vote on the reward for the winner.

[s] BSG Lives on the Help Forum, Sources Confirm

in MNGA

It's common knowledge that BSG is one of the most active members on Musescore's help groups and help forums, but yesterday sources confirmed a new development: BSG actually lives on the help forum at musescore.org. 

"Yup, it's true," a sheepish BSG admitted. "I was on there so often, it just made sense for me to move there and handle the new discussions as they came." 

The MNGA staff would have liked to hold a longer, more in-depth interview with BSG, but he had to hurry home. There's a new discussion pending. 

[r] MS removes 5-score limit for non-pro users

in MNGA

Breaking news this morning when the Musescore staff announced that they have removed the 5-score limit that has so long imposed non-pro users from showcasing more of their work. 

"For a long time, score uploads have been limited for basic accounts and  their owners were able to upload only five scores to MuseScore or pay  for a PRO subscription to remove a limit, said Musescore staff member @mandelstamdavid. "But if you had more than five  scores and your PRO ended, those additional scores got hidden." [1]

"We consider such a limit unfair," he continued. "The score catalog is the most valuable thing for MuseScore. Users shouldn't be restricted from uploading content to the site. The more scores we have, the more people can find suitable content."

Feedback was instantaneous and mostly positive. "Wow, thanks!" said @isabella82958, and @unknown-1 said, " WOW, thanks sooooooo much. I have always wanted to  post more scores and didn't think it was right to have an alt account, so now I'm happy I didn't make one... this just made my day!!!" 


The MNGA gives the MS staff a big, big thank you!

[s] New discussion on Help group, staff responds instantly

in MNGA

When Joe123 created a new discussion on ImprovingMusescore.com, he was shocked to see staff respond to his issue seconds later.

"I was having an issue with my notifications," Joe123 told the MNGA editors. "Next thing I know, my notification bell was bursting from the all the comments." Apparently, @jilizart and @DmitriyPopov were arguing about about who got to take care Joe123's issue. "It's my turn to respond!" jilizart told DmitriyPopov. "No!" DmitriyPopov shot back. "First come, he gets to serve." 

Musescore's latest staff member, @mandelstamdavid, hasn't gotten used to all the hyperactivity. According to MNGA's sources, he's still sitting back, drumming his guitar.

This is MNGA. 

[s][r] Musescore Tribune dies, age .0234

in MNGA

The MNGA staff regrets to inform its subscribers that Musescore's largest and most popular fake news site, the Musescore Tribune, has died at a very young age. 

"Noooooooooooo," mourned a grieving @cubbybubby01, while @WarlikeMicrobe merely said, "I'm not dead. I don't know about the rest of y'all," a statement to which @UnknownAvat4r518 readily agreed. [1]

@CalebKum, one of the Tribune's admins, was completely in the dark, only answering a dim "Hello," to UnknownAvat4r518. The Tribune's founder, @captain argon, told everyone that, "I'm not as active because there are a few things that are REALLY dead in my life...  most of my free time is dead." 

Will the Musescore Tribune be able to resurrect itself? Only death knows.

This is MNGA.

[r] Too Punny to be True

in MNGA

The following is a real life, rapid fire conversation between eBirder and NobleEwe in discussing whether the name of MNGA should be something regarding math.


NobleEwe:  Something doesn't seem to add up.

NobleEwe:  Are you trying to cause division between us?

NobleEwe:  Don't let how you speak subtract from your message.

NobleEwe:  For the remainder of the conversation remember what Ecclesiastes says: the fool multiplies words.

NobleEwe:  Well?  Do you Calculate something different?  It's Plane to see there is an arRay of things I could say, yet you sit in silence, without giving me a Line. 

eBirder:  I refuse to addknowledge your wit.

NobleEwe:  Sorry.  There comes a Point when I can't stop Cos puns are literally my weakness... I hope it's not a Sin.

NobleEwe:  I'm literally cracking myself up with these Complex jokes... to a Degree they struck a Chord in my funny bone.

NobleEwe:  Even though I know it's a bit Odd, I'll keep bugging you, Factoring in your Irrational silence.

NobleEwe:  SOH...I'm TOAly hopeless... I can't seem to Zero in on the Root of my problem.

NobleEwe:  This makes you cringe, Dozen it?

eBirder:  To put it lightly... xD
