Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first.
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0).
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers).
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder.
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season (this includes staff).
- The season restarts every 12 pages.
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*
- MuseScore staff (those with the "staff" badge) count as normal, but they can additionally nullify a count breaker's 0 post and turning it into a regular count post by posting immediately after it (i.e. with no post in between). The staff's post should be x+2, where x is the number in the post immediately before the count was broken.****

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7
**** Introduced in Season 10

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.

Current Season: Season 11
Next Season: Page 133

I'll start: 1

What is your composition style and who inspires you?

The composer that influenced me the most is definitely Claude Debussy. I compose in an impressionistic style, which means that my pieces evoke imagery and a sense of story when listening, with some unique chords and controlled dissonance.

Some other compositional styles (not all of them, but some general ones):

Baroque - very structured, rule-abiding, very much single note voices, court dances.
Classical - sonata, orchestral pieces, structured and with set phrases, repetition and controlled expression.
Romantic - feeling-evoking, dramatic, freedom of expression, strong and contrasting note choices.
Impressionistic - image-evoking, a flowing and free tone, more dissonance, more chord choices.
Contemporary, modern, post-modern - jazz, blues, rag, that kinda music, lots of dissonance
Popular/good sounding - repetitive chord structure, very easy to listen to
Technical - compose for the purpose of exercising the fingers

Help?

in Piano

I'm trying to play Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart, and, as I am a mostly self taught pianist (I had a piano teacher two years ago, but then i went to a new school and learned clarinet because i wanted to be in band), I am having trouble with a few things that I am hoping someone can offer me guidance on
1- The left hand grace notes in arpeggios, can someone please tell me, how do i play those at that speed and correctly?
2- The right hand octaves. I am having a lot of difficulty with this, I try to play it and it makes my arm hurt while doing it, so i tried to relax a little and ended up completely missing the notes
Please help?

Anyone know this song?

in Piano

Hi folks. I'm a 70 year old who foolishly never bothered to learn keyboard from my Juilliard Candidate concert pianist/french hornist dad and am now trying to learn from scratch on my own. 
So I wonder if someone here might be familiar with a song I heard, which I would love to find sheet music for. I heard it once and tapped out as much of the melody as I could remember.
It's uploaded here to Musescore at:

Thank you deeply to anyone who might know this piece. It's probably pretty old, because, you know, I'm pretty old ;-)
