MDL + More

In addition to MDL, I think many could agree that MuseScore also needs MFE (MuseScore Front Ensemble), to work in conjuction with MFE as a soundfont. I understand it is hard to get nice sounds on an open-source software, but it would be nice to have. Here are suggestions for the soundfont in mind:

UPDATED SOUNDS
- Marimba (with 3 hardnesses); the marimba sounds a little bit like a toy xylophone with a deeper voice. It doesn't sound very rich.
- Vibraphone (with 3 hardnesses); the vibes don't exactly sound metallic enough
- Xylophone (with 2/3 hardnesses)
- Glockenspiel (with 2 hardnesses)
- Chimes/Tubular bells (with 2 hardnesses); the chime sound isn't round enough and is a bit abrasive in timbre

NEW SOUNDS
- Crotales
- Gong (PLEASE)
- Suspended/China cymbals with pre-recorded rolls and hits on different sizes (similar to what VDL does)

And as well, a nice function that could be EXTREMELY useful is the ability to upload samples into a score by mp3 or wav.

Done. Many thanks to all to comments to the half-finished version

This piece is written to memorise my university days (almost exactly 10 years ago I was enrolled), in which I used half a theme from the university anthem.
The half finished status made me stressed, and influenced my lab works and my thesis writing. Thus, I just used all my spare time to finish it ASAP.
I am not very satisfied with connection between different parts, especially that between parts D2-D3-E. Ideas are welcomed, and I will try to modify it when I recovered from the current mood.

Playing LOUDER

What are some techniques to playing LOUDER, I always seem to play too quiet. I'm in middle school band, and I want to impact the band more. I need to stand out while I'm playing rather than just conducting- be a good influence for my band (I'm the drum major and I suck XD)

Christmas music for student group

I'm looking for simple (but not dumb!) arrangements for a group of traditional players of all ages and a range of skills. We are mostly a fiddle group, with 10 -12 fiddles, a couple of banjos, a piano and 1-2 guitars. We range in age from 10 to 85! I've been combing the internet and I've found a couple of things right here in musescore that look more interesting than the standard fare. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone.
