I can try your piano concerto!

  Hello everyone!
I want to play your original piano concerto! I have always wanted to play a concerto, and I think I can do us both a favor by giving a mini "commission" for your piece! After I learn it, it will go on YouTube:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrJfro6oZaixMDVF-FgOtMw?view_as=subscriber

I do have a few requirements:
-Please keep it under 6 minutes long. This can be an extract from a movement, but preferably an entire movement so that the video sounds complete.
-THE PIECE HAS TO BE PLAYABLE! I WILL NOT play a seemingly impossible (or impeccably difficult) concerto because I can't and I am not a virtuoso pianist.
-Please upload a score without the piano part. I will be uploading it to YouTube so I need a track without the piano part in it (as well as one with it, of course!). This means I will need you to upload a score to Musescore without the piano part for me to practice with and also so I can get an MP3 with only the orchestra.
-I will only choose one concerto to play. Since there are so many great composers on Musescore, I think I should run by a LOT of pieces. For that reason, I will have to pick only one piece for a commission.
-It must be original. I don't want to play a concerto that is almost identical to one that already exists. This means I won't accept transcriptions or anything like that. I want all of the composer in this concerto.
-Cadenzas are accepted. I can definitely play a cadenza for a concerto, but I strongly prefer a piece with orchestra.

I don't know how long it will take me to learn your concerto. I will definitely focus on making the most out of this experience for you AND me.
Also, if I don't pick your concerto, I can still upload it to YouTube if you want! I can post a MIDI visualization like many of my other videos on the channel.

I hope this event will be a success!

WE GOT 16 PEOPLE!! THE BATTLE IS STARTING!!

WE GOT 16 PEOPLE... THE BATTLE IS FINALLY STARTING!!

This battle is a tournament. I tried to make the same level of piano players against each other. (If you were playing 5 years, I put you against someone that was playing for 5 years)

1st Round: In the first round, the song i am assigning is any song you want to play. (Literally any song) 

How I will be grading:
I will be grading on how difficult the piece is and how flawlessly you play it.
I will give you a grade out of 100.
The person with the better grade moves on to the second round.

Link with the bracket:

Record on a phone or laptop and upload it to your files. Then, submit it in the Google Form below. (If you have any problems message me)

https://forms.gle/czQZSHgKdzEimuxP6

The due date is Friday, November 22 by 12:00 AM (Eastern TIme) If you don't turn it in, or turn it in late, the other person will win no matter what.

UPDATE:
I made a website with all of the necessary information. It is a lot more convenient for me and for y'all.

Let's make this event a good one!

What are y'all favorite artists/songs?

I really really like Disney music in general. (don't judge even tho I'm a teen) XD. I also like Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilots. I don't really have a favorite song tho....... Also, help. I've been bored lately and do y'all have any cheesy/corny jokes? LOL. Follow me on ROBLOX: smartypants0926. I haven't been active lately cause my dad blocked Roblox sooo. But my friend is helping me earn money on certain games while I am gone. CYAAAAA LATer!!! 

Just finished a suite for solo cello, comments and advises are welcomed

https://musescore.com/user/6595486/scores/5826114

I started the first section as an exercise for modulation, and then decided to expand it into a dance suite. I wrote the sections in the following sequence: prelude, gigue, sarabande, allemande, and minuet.
The minuet was written yesterday during a day-long severe headache, which is a little different from the other parts. I am not sure if it sounds alright here, or I should replace it with a "normal" one.
Any comments about this suite is welcomed!

Also, I would be grateful if cellists can help me to correct the notation (many thanks to Teodor Lontos for his previous help).
And to you, I have 2 questions:
1. Above which pitch would you prefer a treble clef?
2. For a piece with changing tones, would you prefer key signatures or just mark it with the notes (as the present version does)?

Thanks and have a nice Sunday.
