How old are you?

I know this is a little personal! I know we have a lot of different age groups, some in high school, and some 16,teens, and grown ups! I will tell you my age, but you’ll think I’m too young to be here, and too young to be in charge of some groups! I’m 11 years old, in 6th grade, and some of you know that I’m in a relationship, but who cares if I’m too young(my younger sister that’s who!) You don’t have to share your age here if you don’t want to!

Welcome! Why don’t you introduce yourself? :D

Hey guys, welcome to Wolf Pack! Why don’t you take a moment to introduce yourselves?
Also, a thanks to AcousticRenegade for making this group! She’s our leader technically, so listen to her. ;P

Guess I’ll introduce myself.


I’m Jay, I’m a transcriber, arranger, singer, composer, and pianist. I’ve had piano lessons for 2 and a half years, and I’ve been self taught sense. I’m currently learning guitar too. I love making people smile, and I love to talk to people. :)

What is your composition style and who inspires you?

The composer that influenced me the most is definitely Claude Debussy. I compose in an impressionistic style, which means that my pieces evoke imagery and a sense of story when listening, with some unique chords and controlled dissonance.

Some other compositional styles (not all of them, but some general ones):

Baroque - very structured, rule-abiding, very much single note voices, court dances.
Classical - sonata, orchestral pieces, structured and with set phrases, repetition and controlled expression.
Romantic - feeling-evoking, dramatic, freedom of expression, strong and contrasting note choices.
Impressionistic - image-evoking, a flowing and free tone, more dissonance, more chord choices.
Contemporary, modern, post-modern - jazz, blues, rag, that kinda music, lots of dissonance
Popular/good sounding - repetitive chord structure, very easy to listen to
Technical - compose for the purpose of exercising the fingers

Score taken down for infringement of rights

Hello
I received the following email from MuseScore:
"Your score has been taken down

In response, I filed a dispute thread as proposed, arguing that this work written in the sixteenth century has long been in the public domain (CPDL), as can be seen here:
http://www3.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Ecce_quomodo_moritur_justus_(Jacob_....
 
Besides, on the PDF downloaded from this site and from which I edited with Musescore, the following statement can be read in full:
"Copyright © 1999 by the Choral Public Domain Library (http://www.cpdl.org)

I don't have an answer yet, but I would like to understand how I could usurp anyone's rights.

Release 2.3.0

Trends in the modern world are moving towards simplification, acceleration and improvement. We add people as friends to Facebook, watch photos on Instagram, tweeting.

The community of MuseScore is very special. Here there are composers, and virtuosos, and beginners, who are just beginning to comprehend the world of sheet music. Our application lacked some part that could unite their interests.  

In our new release, we add functionality that will give you the opportunity to stay in trend, find like-minded people with a common musical taste, and be aware of what is happening in the world of MuseScore.  

The update consists of three parts.

The first is the Feed. This displays the most recently added scores of the composers you are following.

The second is the Notifications. We did not want to cause your frustration, so we placed them separately from the scores tab.

The third part is the Profiles. Now you can look at all the scores that this user added, and find like-minded people among those who subscribe to him.

Stay tuned.
