Feedback on my nocturne

I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:

I would love some feedback on it. I have heard from another person that I kind of use the same rhythm over and over. I honestly didn't plan on changing the rhythm because nocturnes typically will have a triplet rhythm. And the rhythm of the melody I think is part of why it sounds so beautiful to me. Also it is Bb which is a key I associate with a moonlit night.

I composed it over 3 days.  Anyway, what do you think? 

Help on Ballad

in Brass

I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)

Best Hamelin Recordings

Marc-Andre Hamelin is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest virtuosi alive, and has recorded all manner of pieces. I would like to enquire as to the personal preferences of this group with regard to this Canadian master?

My own favourite recordings of his:

Alkan's Symphonie pour Piano Seul; Concerto pour piano seul; Le Festin d'Esope.
Liszt's Sonata H-moll
Saint-Saens' Piano concerto no. 2, third movemnet.

That last piece he performs unassailably.

The ultimate musescore songbook

I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!

Thanks in advance!

Musecorps Competition #0.1!

Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?

Thanks for any feedback!

Solo compositions (for music assignment at school)

 Hey, so I tried composing for the first time for an assignment for Year 7 music and I'm confident (sort of...) about them! To explain the very short lengths of these pieces, the requirements were to have the length at least be 12-16 bars long and it had to be in C Major or C Pentatonic Scale (and no other modulations other than that with the exceptions of accidentals). Hope you like them and any constructive criticism are more than welcomed.

So for the first piece, I kinda wanted it to be a circus theme, so I had a rough melody in my head that I've sworn I've heard from somewhere but couldn't really remember where I heard it from. After finishing it, I checked with my music tutor (outside of school) and she showed me a song in a beginners book that was identical in terms of the melody. But I'll still upload it for any criticism.
As for the second piece, this was composed in under half an hour, so please excuse my sudden transitions in the melody. Also, my teacher encouraged titles for our pieces and in a language of our choice so the captions are in no way intended to be an offense to the Hungarian language or culture. To save you time, the Hungarian captions translate to:

- 'Period 3: Class 8E1' (Title)
- 'Start of class' (i think...) (first caption Bar 1)
- 'Reverie' (second caption Bar 5)
- 'Snap back into reality' (third caption Bar 9-10)
- 'Back to studying' (fourth caption Bar 13)
- 'End of class' (fifth caption Bar 15)
- 'Transition' (last caption Bar 16).


Musecorps Competition #0!

Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!

This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!

The Competition:
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.
