"Waves" of RSA :P

kinda going along with the generations of musescore discussion in the Discussion Group :P
But there is a pattern of people that join, become active, and slowly become less active. So I thought it would be fun for you guys to see where you're at in relation to this group's development and "history" xD
I'll probably keep updating this as the group gets more history lol

1st wave (RSA veterans)
Joined before the creation of the community page, and before this group began blowing up thanks to the RSA Rebellion of March 2018. At this stage the group was <60 members, <120 discussions, and was not well known to the rest of the site.
Were likely active on musescore prior to the creation of this group.
This was from the very beginning to the beginning of March 2018.

2nd wave
Joined during or after the Rebellion. Was part of a huge surge of new members into the group after it blew up. Joined while the group was still "open" - before Dookis and the spammer followers prompted me to change it to "moderated" at the end of June 2018. These are the last people to join the group by themselves, without me reviewing their membership requests.

3rd wave
Joined during summer break of 2018 (July through August). Group was at its peak in activity, and by this time I was approving join requests instead of letting members join by themselves. Dookis incident happened.

4th wave
September arrives, RSA has its first birthday. General activity decreases (but group remains highly active) and discussion count rapidly increases but the discussions begin lacking quality. Moderation becomes stricter - I mass-delete 200 discussions and begin modding more closely. Group rules for discussions are created. Discussion quality improves.
Joined September through December 2018

5th wave
Joined January through May 2019. Activity/conversation is normal. Middle school musescorers begin to outnumber high school and/or college+ musescorers. Musix and lordtroll incidents happen, moderation becomes stricter. RSA breaks world record for highest discussion count in a musescore group and begins taking over the rest of musescore.

6th wave
Activity decreases due to everyone going on vacation for summer. Current wave; joined June 2019 or later.

Anyway comment below what wave you're from :D

Anyone know this song?

in Piano

Hi folks. I'm a 70 year old who foolishly never bothered to learn keyboard from my Juilliard Candidate concert pianist/french hornist dad and am now trying to learn from scratch on my own. 
So I wonder if someone here might be familiar with a song I heard, which I would love to find sheet music for. I heard it once and tapped out as much of the melody as I could remember.
It's uploaded here to Musescore at:

Thank you deeply to anyone who might know this piece. It's probably pretty old, because, you know, I'm pretty old ;-) 

Arrangement of Shallow coming soon but I need help

I'm in the process of setting up my arrangement for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's song shallow for string orchestra and piano. In fact I'm halfway done. But here's the thing.

I'm having trouble with coming up with a leading chord progression. I'm trying to have the song in G major transition to A major.
The transition starts with the chord pattern in the chorus in the original key in G major.
Am -> D (or D7) -> G -> D or (D7) -> Em
And then there's supposed to be a chord progression that leads to the chorus again but in A major.
Bm -> E (or E7) -> A -> E (or E7) -> F#m
And I just don't know what chord progression makes sense for me to change key signatures this way.

I'm open to input. Lemme know what ideas you have. Any of yall that are self-trained or had lessons in music theory, I could use some help from yall too.

Help?

in Piano

I'm trying to play Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart, and, as I am a mostly self taught pianist (I had a piano teacher two years ago, but then i went to a new school and learned clarinet because i wanted to be in band), I am having trouble with a few things that I am hoping someone can offer me guidance on
1- The left hand grace notes in arpeggios, can someone please tell me, how do i play those at that speed and correctly?
2- The right hand octaves. I am having a lot of difficulty with this, I try to play it and it makes my arm hurt while doing it, so i tried to relax a little and ended up completely missing the notes
Please help?
