Feedback on my nocturne

I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:

https://musescore.com/user/50070/scores/5281446

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 :)

Flute Duets?

I'm looking for some nice, and fairly easy, flute duets for my school's open house. Basically small duets or trios of instruments sit around different areas of the school and play, and I'm trying to find some nice flute duets that can be learned in under a week. I've found two thus far, but will need about seven or eight. If anyone has a duet they really like or want to recommend, I'd love to see what you have!

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: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. 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!
