I'm a beginner composer, and I just finished composing this piece for cello and piano. I feel like that I may need to cut back on a lot of the notes. If you could, can you please have a listen and give me your feedback?
That, and if there's a more appropriate title...
Thank you very much!
Hey I posted a song not too long ago, and i could really use some suggestions/tips. Thanks :)
I just edited out a few mistakes in my latest score. Feedback appreciated
Encase you do like it follow for more pieces that I will be releasing shortly
here is an idea for a film music contest.
here is the scene:
Supergirl and wonderwoman are in a face-off and are getting ready to fight.
Write themes for each character.
incorporate the themes into suspenseful music to accompany the scene showing them getting ready to fight.
Any one interested?
Deadline is July 31.
Hello! I'm a self-taught composer, and this is my second full piece (I've written things like character themes for friends that I don't count as full pieces) and, although I've been working on it throughout the summer, I'm still unhappy with it. I'm looking for critiques and tips on how I can improve this piece.
So we had a 3 way tie for first, so I had to choose from those 3 as to which was first, second, and third (which also meant changing their scores so they placed as listed below lol)
FIRST! - @Skylighter - 20
SECOND! - @lizzapie - 19
THIRD! - @The Virtuoso Pianist - 18
now the point scale for the rest of you!

Thank you all! be sure to watch for a summer original competition! :D
*I did average out a little bit the scoring of the scores, so some scores scored higher in caparison to others than what is written, but they all had some really great ideas!!*
You may have seen my “Shorts for Trombone.” It is by far my most popular score, probably because it pops up if you search for a lot of popular music. It has not been updated in a while and I would like to add a whole bunch of new excerpts to it. If you have any suggestions, comment them below and I will add pretty much anything.
I am also interested in creating versions of my shorts for concert pitch treble, Eb treble, F treble, and Bb treble, and a version in bass clef an octave lower than the current version so that more people can play my shorts. I am not pro, so those would be something you would have to ask for.
Here’s the score: https://musescore.com/user/2878026/scores/2800021
Now I will start going through them, and I think I will judge on a scale of 1 to 20 :D
and I will try to add a short comment on the piece along with the score :D
And I must say, it's so cool how many of you did it! Thank you all!
The order I'll be judging in: (And This Is NOT The Results in case I didn't make it clear lol ;P)
I hope to get the results out within a few days, so stay tuned! :D
