What key is this actually?

So... This petite piece  
https://musescore.com/colorsofsound1/scores/5575351
 has it's inspiration from a little musical sketch I made with the melody a few days ago (16/05/2019). This also marks the first official try at the mazurek (mazurka), although, it is inspired from Chopin's mazurkas, I have not modeled anything except the introduction after his composition. So, if anyone knows the form better than I, and see idiosyncratic things here on the score, then please don't hesitate to point them out for me, as I still have much to learn.  

I am a bit unsure if I should change the key to g minor or c# minor, As both those keys also have ties with the piece, however, I don't know if it would be harder to read that way and besides the piece is also so chromatic and harmonically weird that I don't dare to put any # or b in there yet. So, right now it's in A minor. If you have some insight on this issue, please let me know! :) 

Edit: Some small improvements have been made. Shoutout to @JustisB for helping me, by providing insightful suggestions and feedback.  

I need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.

Perfect Pitch?

Do you have it? I sorta do, still developing. I can play mostly melodies by ear, I wasn't born with it. Though, is it possible to be born with perfect pitch? And does that automatically make you want to be a musician? My hope is to have the ability to listen to just about anything then play it, like Daniel Thrasher did on a live stream. (Check out his YouTube channel if you don't know who he is, he is really awesome!) I believe arranging songs by ear helps develop perfect pitch so for those who haven't tried that, please do. It's honestly better to arrange something for yourself than to ask someone else to do it for you. If you can't seem to figure it out after trying then you should ask someone but, seriously, it's really fun to do more than just compose. If you haven't done either...why are you here? I'm kidding lol! But try to make something, it really is fun!

This is frustrating...

Whenever I try and use the search bar, to find a piece of music, it just takes me to the browse page when I hit “search”. I’m just trying to search for music, and every time I hit the “search” button, it just takes me to the browse page.
Is this a glitch or something? Because even when I scroll down, it doesn’t give me any results for what I searched.

Private Scores visible to everyone - bug?

Hello MuseScore team,

I was recently messaged by someone who was having trouble accessing some of my scores. When they specified which ones they were having trouble seeing, they starting listing off the titles of my *private* scores which I upload to MuseScore so they are backed up safely online. 

I'm not sure how long this has been a feature, but any user of the site can go to anyone's Scores page and see the titles, descriptions and first page of all their private scores. In my opinion, this is neither evident nor acceptable behaviour of the "private upload" feature. These scores should not even be part of my total score count, let alone displayed on my profile.

If this is working as intended, I will be removing my private scores from this site.

Thank you.
