Not sure if there's a level beyond virtuoso, but I think this end of this piece (and some of the runs in the middle) would require it
I am working on composing a set of harmonized chorales, and want them to be formatted similarly to Bach's "371 4-Part Chorales", but don't know how.
In this piece, he put breaks between lines, as shown between #50 and 51.
How does one do this?
I wrote this piece that alludes to a Chinese Folk Melody. I'm not sure if the Wind parts are difficult to play. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks :)

Hello, I deleted my old account (facebook) and created this one. I also uploaded my Op.1 No.1 Waltz here if anyone wants to view it. It's been updated a lot by the way, it isn't just a re-upload.
Here is something that is new and is supposed to help people become great piano players: www.beautifulsimplicitymusic.wordpress.com.
What is the nature of music?
What constitutes good music?
Why is musescore such a great place to compose music and hear what others compose?
Why does this iPad keep trying to change my words? In the last question, instead of "compose" it tried to change it to "can moose"
What do mooses have to do with music composition?
Is there anything wrong with writing monologues?
Why do I write monologues?
Why do I use the word "monologues" instead of "monologue"
Why is monologue spelled "monologue" instead of "monolog"?
Why are there so many questions?
When am I going to stop writing these annoying questions?
Why are you still reading this if it is so annoying?
When will this end?
Is that a question?
Hello! I've been playing clarinet for about 3 months now, but I have never quite been able to play in the upper register successfully. If any of you out there could give me some tips, it would be much appreciated!
Edit: Thank you all for your help!
Some folks have wanted to know, "who is chinadoll?" These one or two folks are musescore members with an abundance of free time and curiosity about trivial issues that have nothing to do with music composition. That said (written), let us (me, this is confusing) be clear, they are very nice people and chinadoll is deeply touched (in the head, most likely) by their interest. So here goes.
Chinadoll has beautiful glossy golden brown hair, large soft eyes, a very quiet shy disposition along with an exceptionally sweet and gentle nature. Chinadoll loves loves fresh fruit (especially bananas) and vegetables. Yes, chinadoll is a Syrian Hamster with a bit of a talent for composing music. Late at night when everyone is asleep, chinadoll will tap out the notes on the home computer using her little paws. She loves attention and lots of gentle petting (especially if you give her a treat).
At one point Notepreformer was exclusive to Sibelius but now on their site they have betas for Finale and Dorico. Why not make a version for musescore? That would be really awesome. It probably will not happen but that would be cool.
please take a look and feel free to roast me into next tuesday
For those who don’t know Polyrhythm is the simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms e.g. triplets at the same time as duplets
I am seeking advice from ensemble players and/or anyone reasonably experienced with scoring for winds, especially if you have a background in chamber music.
I compose and arrange for piano, strings, and guitar, but I am hoping to expand my horizon and beginning to look into orchestration in general.
I own a grand flute and have a basic understanding of what it can do and how it will sound not as MIDI but in real life. What it can cut through, and what it will only ever-so-slightly color.
By extension albeit to a lesser extent I can claim the same for the piccolo.
However, I have zero experience writing for oboe, clarinet, or bassoon.
The following piece is my very first attempt at balancing all five woodwinds mentioned above, and not just against one another but against five string instruments as well.
Owing to complete inexperience, at first I tried to tackle this by thinking in terms of flute and string quartet, and treating the rest of the players as supporting cast. I have no idea if that's the wisest thing to do, but that's what I know. So it starts off tame and only gradually grows more confident.
The piece is tonal and requires no virtuosity from any of the players. I am not concerned with what's playable and what isn't. I am concerned with balance, texture, and color.
So if the individual parts are unremarkable that's a good thing. My focus is on making them come together to form a cohesive whole. Not on pushing the envelope, but on acquiring an understanding of the basics. There's no point in writing the next Rite of Spring if you can't even orchestrate two bars of a simple waltz.
In brief, I have no idea how any of this will sound on actual instruments, what to look out for, and what not to worry about.
So if something jumps out at you as an experienced ensemble player, by all means do let me know.
If nothing does, all the better.
The runtime is six minutes.
Thank you in advance.
