MuseScore Collection for Sight Reading

Getting your work played is the goal of any composer out there. With prescribed lists for state-level contests and competition with well-established composers, it really is hard for a lot of emerging composers to get their work played and start to build their name.

As every ensemble needs to develop their sight-reading skills, this presents a unique opportunity for composers to start to get their work out there and actually played.

I propose to create a collection of works of Musescore.com members made available to band directors for the specific purpose of sight reading. I will actively promote this collection to band directors through a number of channels and partnerships.

To participate, community members should submit ORIGINAL works that match a specific style guide, have rehearsal markings, articulations, phrasing and conductors notes. I will provide a template and guidelines.

Anyone interested to participate in this initiative can submit links to works to this discussion.

Composing Music

I was just wondering if anyone had advice for composing music.. Like what is it best to start out with? Melody or bass line, etc.. I am still learning a lot of things because I am only 14, but I am more advanced than many others of my age in music, so please don't underestimate me. I want to go to Juilliard so much, it has been my dream for years.. Well, if you have any advice, please comment! :)

Hi!

I am currently writing a Medley of Skrillex songs, and I am about half way through it. Can you just take a small amount of your time to tell me what you think of it so far and ways that I can improve it. The Medley is for my small town concert band, and I am containing only the parts that we have. This is also my first score, so I may be still getting used to the controls :P
Thankyou so much!
