I cant decide

I have to play one of my pieces at school and im gonna choose between these two

Ab major Waltz:
Will take longer to learn(hard), but it has a happy mood

Won't take long(easy), but it sounds sad, possibly even dull (people will think im sad?)

They both last the same amount of time, give or take 10 seconds.
They both definitely need some polishing up
But which do you think sounds more interesting/ better?
Just let me know in this comment bit, thanks

Hi guys! I'm having trouble completing this...

I'm currently doing a collection of pieces in all 24 keys, for piano solo. I need help completing the set, so I'd appreciate it if you'd help out composing a short (less than or around 4 minutes) in G# minor (for now). The only criteria it must fulfill in order for it to be considered in the project is that the style of the piece must be different from the rest. Example: the piece in F major is written in a waltz, the one in Eb major is written 4/4 against 3/4, C minor has a Prokofiev (I think) feel to it, F minor is written in jazz, etc. Also, it must show some form of virtuoso/impressionism (whichever you are aiming for). I am interested in the dances forms (tango, marzuka, minuet, sarabande...), but anything goes for now. Credits will be given for the piece if it makes it in, as well as a favourite and a follow, very well deserving.

Here's the piece:

PS: I might reject some pieces if I find the piece unsuitable for the project, I'll also include critique/reasons for the said decision.
Love to hear from you guys!

Using apps is secure or not?

As everyone is using apps for music and other sectors like a bank, have you listen to quick book app which is being used in small businesses for managing their finance data. is this safe to give your personal bank information to the third party. I asked it at Quickbooks support https://quickbooksupports.co here they told me this app provides its own security plans. okay, this is great but those apps we use individually are really secure?

Score advice

I don't mind listening to anyone's music and giving comments and critique, so if anyone wants me to listen just let me know! :D

BTW I'd appreciate it if anyone could give some feedback on mine XD

Score advice


This is a little piece that I composed recently. I'd appreciate it if anyone could provide some feedback, and also maybe a name for the piece (since I haven't found one that quite fits yet...). Thanks!

Anyways, I came up with this piece after listening to Philip Glass' String Quartet No 3 - Mishima, and the simplistic style that he wrote with. I also really liked his use of polyrhythms in that piece, so I decided to try to incorporate them in this one as well...

MuseScore "Themed" Drum Corps/ Marching Band Show

Ive had this idea to make a show that is only with MuseScore composers. It will also have a marching band version along with it.

Please comment your selections of music with your full name (I know its weird asking for that but I dont want something like this on the cover of the score ex. "Concert Cencerto for Bass Trombone by Yaboisaxplayer209". Sounds weird right.?)

Please dont submit other peoples works, show them this discussion first and let them make the comment.

If you cant find any, you can also comment some famous pieces. Like "Mother Earth Fanfare by David Maslanka"

Im really excited to work on this as a project by myself to expand my abilities to write. :)

Thoughts / Comments

Hello everyone. I'm a highschool student that's relatively new to musescore (joined a few months ago) and I was just hoping that some of you could check out some of my scores & give me feedback. I'm hungry for ways to be a better arranger & one day composer, so this could be extremely helpful & the feedback could be either good or bad. My ears are open to everything. Thank you!

Need comments on a slightly more difficult Persona 5 song transcription

Hello all! I just finished my second transcription project:
The original audio URL is https://youtu.be/DXOpUJe9Hv0
Not sure if I did everything correctly, especially Measure 9-16 sound a little messy (not even sure if I got the chords right). But I'm quite pleased that I was able to push myself a little further :D

Advertisement: my first project is "Last Surprise" and I think it's pretty accurately done:

We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)

This task was so hard, I never thought that so many good songs would be posted to this group. I firstly would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to post songs here. There were about seventy entries. I narrowed it down to fourteen. It’s not that the others were bad, far from it. Most were worthy of a record, but there are some things, for me, that make a really great lyrical song.
1) The tune
2) The message of the lyrics, rhymes, alliterations, language etc.
3) Tempo vs note length (syllables per minute), cadence of the lyrics in time with the notes, (“Singability”)
4) The clarity of the melody against the other instruments
5) Some catchy riff to make the song stand out and be remembered

After listening to these fourteen over ten times each, the decision got harder and harder so I left if for a while and came back to it.
I narrowed it down to four and finally settled on one.

I Had an Idea for a Minecraft Game

So yeah, I had an idea for a minecraft RPG game, and i needed help making music.
Remember, if you want to help me and compose some music, be sure that you 100% want to make some music for it, the chances of it not becoming a thing are very high.
You need a melody and baseline.
Please use pianos for the piece, preferably one or two.
Expect the instruments to possibly change, the reason I want piano pieces is so that I can cover them/remix and you can do less.
Pieces needed:
A Desert Theme
A Jungle Theme
A Forest Theme
A Water Theme
A Nether Theme
An End Theme
A Aether Theme
And a Credit Roll (SPECIAL kudos to the person who makes this one!)
Don't worry about the Intro theme, game overs and themes for characters, I have a hold of those
And, if it doesn't become a thing, I'll release the entire soundtrack on Soundcloud, with links to each artist!
It's OK if you don't want to help, I'll understand.
