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
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
Well I decided to do a competition here in the spring while waiting for the summer competition :D

You must be creative! this competition is all about being creative with the colors in the orchestra, the winning score will be judged on usages of color and creativity! :D
Deadline: Must submit before April 1st. (unless not enough entries have been made, then I will change it to May 1st)
Have fun Everyone! :D
(put links to your arrangements down below!)
And once the submissions are closed, I will post a score with my own Orchestration :D

So, I just hit the big 300 mark! What should I do? I Was thinking of revamping/ finishing the old old old Phantom of the opera string quartet I had done a million years ago Lol So If you have a suggestion of a piece I should arrange, or an interesting idea for an original, Then feel free to share! Thanks!!!
Sorry all, not enough people entered, and it's the day before February, so I regret that I will now end this because not enough entries wee given. :(
But... I am thinking I will do another competition for the summer. and it will be nature themed, so stay tuned for that!! :D
(and that competition will be for any type of ensemble. I might do a prize, but we will see :D)
I can't believe it! I'm about to hit 50 followers (only need 7 more)! I know that it isn't mush, but it is something right? Tell if you would like to see an original composition, or an arrangement of a song you like. I'm going to take probably 3-5 ideas so choose wisely as I'm putting this discussion in all the groups I'm in.
