I think it would be great to do a huge showcase of MuseScore's compositions. If you would like to take part, just post the link to the sheet music of ONE of your original compositions and a few people and I will have a go at compiling them into one massive piece. Could be epic! Please share this in various MuseSscore groups and email me the responses. It will take a while to do, but would be an amazing thing to have when finished. Your compositions can be anything - any genre, any length and for any number of instruments. Thanks all!
I really hate to ask for help on things, but I am looking for someone with the capability of producing high quality recordings of some, if not as many as you can of my pieces:
"Fantasy No.1" https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/2162151
"Morning Tendencies": For a Jazz Big Band https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/2058036
"Waltz No.6" https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/4616781
"Battle Hymn of the Republic" https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/3171896
"To Be Thankful" https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/2822271
"Because of You" https://musescore.com/user/21257/scores/3447016
I can't offer money, but I can offer recognition and will put your name, labeled "producer", on any of the recordings I put out on Musescore, Soundcloud, or Youtube.
I will be eternally grateful to whoever can help make them sound as close as possible to the real thing!!!
For any composers interested in composing a prelude and fugue in this years composer competition:
You can see the themes on my profile.
I need so much help on this piece. This is one of my first origanal scores and I would love to really improve this song but, I just don't know how. Any feedback is welcome. Especially a song name.
Exactly what the title says, I need some feedback on this piece: https://musescore.com/user/19081156/scores/4795361 If you notice anything that could be improved, please leave a comment. Alternatively, you could try to make up a name for it, because I'm awful at that. Thanks in advance!
READ ALL OF THIS IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE!
Not official discussion thread.
Anyone ever done one of those three word story things where one person gives 3 words, then the next dude gives 3 words and so on?
I thought I'd try that with music! So I've written the first three bars. You download the latest version from here: https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586 , Add your original three bars to it, post the whole thing on your account, then give the link to it in the discussion ( https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586 ). Then I will update the score here to the latest version, but because I can't be on musescore 24/7, it's unlikely that what's here is the latest version. So when you add your bit, make sure you check the official discussion version before you start writing. so...
Here's my start:
1. If you want to compete then do! The more people the better!
2. When you add bars, get the latest version off the official discussion.
3. FEEL FREE TO ADD INSTRUMENTS (AS MANY AS YOU WANT), CHANGE TIME SIG, CHANGE TEMPO, CHANGE STYLE, ETC. just only do it to your own three bars.
4. Try and make it flow from what's come before.
5. Put your name/username above your three bars.
6. when you upload, don't just upload your new bars, but the whole thing up to that!!!!!!!
7. POST THE LINK IN THE OFFICIAL DISCUSSION! NOT THIS ONE - POST IT HERE: https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586
Think that's all - Have fun!
Hello, as the title implies, I would like some feedback on a song that I'm currently working on:
I am still working on it, so expect frequent updates if you like it enough to check back on it at a later time. Thanks in advance!
Just want some general comments and/or criticisms. I might change the ending for this but it is mostly done.
My new album "Rag Tales" is out now. You can find it on Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, and Google Play among others. I got started right here on Musescore when I was invited to the ragtime players group. Please check it out. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you friends. Just search for " CJ Brandt" or "Rag Tales". Thanks again.
Any entries to this competition must be posted in the group link below. This piece must contain at least 1 key change, at least 2 tempo changes, one brass and one woodwind instrument MINIMUM, one drums line, a large range of dynamics and articulation (very detailed and specific to each instrument) and one clever feature, not so obvious on the musescore software that must be mentioned in the description. To enter, join the group and post your score. . . https://musescore.com/groups/3734396
Can I get some feedback on my composition. I've reuploaded it from earlier and I wanted some critique. https://musescore.com/user/11646946/scores/3647781
So I've noticed that many of my compositions don't sound very full, and that transitions don't seem as smooth as they could be, and realized that this was probably due in large part to my scarce use of percussion, especially in pieces for orchestra or large ensemble.
I really only ever use timpani for dramatic moments and suspended cymbals for some transitions, because everything I try to write on snare and bass either seems too repetitive or just too obtrusive, and I pretty much have no idea how to use any of the other percussion instruments to their proper effect.
I've listened to various other orchestral compositions, but it seems that every composer uses percussion so differently to suit their own compositions, and I couldn't find a pattern or general technique to follow. Thus I am led to seek help here; anybody have any tips/general advice on how percussion can be used in pieces for orchestra or large symphonic ensembles?
I've begun to see a pattern emerging:
When I write, I figure out an ostinate in the bass and/or percussion and write my melody on top of that. It works pretty alright in jazz and pop, but it get seriously boring, to listen to the same cadence over and over again, very soon, when I bring that same habit into program music: There is a huge disparity between an ostinate reprice and just repeating stuff.
When I write counterpoints or add to another's melody (not arrangement, but adding horns or similar) I have no problem, because the ground work has been done, but when I write, I find myself pressing Ctrl-R a bit too often.
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only victim to 'lazy writing', so do you have any advice on how to write more free flowing music without it loosing direction?
As I come upon the end of my newest jazz tune, I feel that I may want to take a step back and do some classical compositions.
I was thinking of writing a piano composition and would like to work on it with someone who is proficient at composing. Someone who I can bounce ideas off of and vise versa.
Please let me know if you are interested and message me either on this discussion, on one of my scores, or through the "send message" button on my account.

Yes a game I'd like to try and get started on Musescore. I'm not too sure how successful this is going to be or how many people would participate but I'm still curious anyway.
A couple of friends and I were discussing a few days ago how cool it is that each country seems to have there own style of music. You could close your eyes and have a style of music play (like traditional Asian-styled music, Mid-western music etc.) and you feel as if you're there!
So we had this little game idea. It's called "Where in the world"? The basic idea is, if anyone would like to play it, is write a short piece, no longer than maybe 2-3- minutes, with a cultural theme. Pick a country or some general area: France, Australia, America, literally ANYWHERE, and write a piece that would set that sort of mood.
BUT: Don't put in the description or in the title where this place is. Let people comment what kind of mood they think you're trying to set. If they have gotten it right, you prove to be successful in setting the right mood for your song. If not, there's always next time
So if anyone is interested, start writing!
I'll be posting a discussion titled "Where in the world"? In my group called "Advertise your music". Post your link in the reply box and hopefully comments will come in. I'll be sure to check out the music. Give the song at least a week before revealing the answer of your place.
I Hope I'm making sense.

What's up!? hey I'm an amateur composer with only five songs uploaded to musescore and a growing number of uploads on youtube. If you are interested, look at my songs that have uploaded videoscores to and check them out! The soundfont I use (GeneralUser GS 1.442) isn't perfect, but I think it's the best I can get to work with musescore. If anyone knows of better soundfonts, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I'm always looking to improve!
