Sorry I have to do a direct post like this but there's a glitch with my account that wont let me add scores to groups but if you guys could check out (leave comments/critiques) of Lucid Dreams I arranged it with Musicman-8 (he did percussion) thanks so much!
I'm a German poet and composer, so I wanted to ask you about your opinion
about my very first try in setting one of my poems to music...
Unfortunately, I'm only a (mediocre) student of the English language,
so I can't translate the lyrics into English.
(though, I would appreciate if someone else, could do it...)
Thanks in advance for your help,
I'd appreciate some critique on this fugue I wrote:
I don't know how much marching band experience there is in this group, but I've arranged a stand tune potentially for use of my high school. I'd love advice, especially for drumline parts. The song is Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon. https://musescore.com/jmannz2905/shut-up-and-dance
Hi, I finished my first (IMO) good dodecaphonic piece and would really apprecciate some feedback on what type of feeling it conveys and if you like it or not...
Thx in advance for your help
I just finished these waltzes which were influenced by the works of F.Chopin. I would be very grateful if you had a listen and told me what you think. Thanks
Is anyone versed in MusicXML? I have a midi arrangement. I used Finale Notepad to convert it to musicxml. Then I oppened it in Musescore to begin the arduous task of rearranging parts into my ensemble instruments. That always works fine for me. However, on this particular piece, on certain halfnotes, I get a "swelling" dynamic, the way a musician would shape a whole or half note. The note I show below is a half note ... sometimes it happens in a measure with mixed note values ... and no dynamic markings or articulations on the score. I have tried playing with velocity settings and cannot find what is doing it.
In the MusicXML file for the note in question, I see
<note default-x="14.36" default-y="-500.00">
From my limited understanding of those parameters, I see nothing that would cause the effect i explained above.
I'm a sophomore in high school and I've been working on this piece for a few months now. I've been wondering what to do next with this piece and I could use some help. Any and all critiques are useful and greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
I've been tweaking this piece for a few months, but I think it's in a state where I am almost satisfied with it. I'd love to hear what you all think about it. Are there transitions that need smoothing? How are the modulations? Are themes developed enough or not enough in the context of the whole piece? What do you think of the "story"?
Thank you <3
This is probably gonna be way too long...
Here's the piece I'm talking about, it's in concert pitch just for the sake of simplicity.
I got started on it by actually making stuff up on trumpet rather than sitting at a computer like I usually do, so I didn't really have a chord progression in mind when making it. I think I did an Ok job (yeah right) of making one for the first part (The Cm7-Edim-FM7-Em7, Cm7-Edim-EbM7-Dm7 one), but I'm lost after that. There are parts that don't seem like they could go with any chord, and I'm still a bit of a rookie to writing music so I'm not sure what I should make the chords to those parts. My bigger problem with the second part is that I don't want it to just be a bunch of random chords with no sense of direction. There needs to be a progression, right? But it doesn't seem like the melody I wrote is following one. Any help on that front would be MUCH appreciated.
2.) What do I do with this piano?!
I know that the piano should be doing something other than just playing whole note chords the whole time the trumpet is playing, but I can't figure out what it is for the life of me. If I try to make things different in the piano, it doesn't seem to blend well with the trumpet. If I just have whole note chords, the piano part is boring, and also sort of interrupts the trumpet during ties over barlines. I didn't have all that much time to experiment with this today, so I just put it all as whole notes temporarily.
When I was first coming up with the melody, I was playing with a harmon mute. Obviously a real instrument will always sound better than a simulated one, *cough* musescore trombone soundfont *cough* but I think that the sound of the musescore version would be a lot better with a muted trumpet rather than an open one. So, if anyone knows if there is a trumpet w/ harmon mute soundfont on musescore, please let me know.
Alright, thanks in advance!
The bond between Man and Frisbee is an incredibly special one, cherished for life. But when that bond is broken prematurely, the only thing that can be done is memorialize it with a song. This is that song. https://musescore.com/user/4855526/scores/2682786
I was hoping to get some more feedback on a couple pieces I wrote a short time ago. One being a slow song written for guitar, drums, piano, and a tenor sax called "Reminiscence," and the other being a short piano etude called "The Dragon of the Northwest." I hope to here your comments about the two pieces soon!

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!
OK so I have been accepted into this program put together by this group known as Topology. I will be spending the year working with them and they help me enhance my composing skills and broaden my horizons. In this program I am also given the great opportunity to have a piece of mine played live. So the question is: what exactly would be the best way to go for a first timer like me? What kind of piece would be best to have performed for a composer who has never had his music played live ever?
Any form of response is greatly appreciated :)
Like ShadowDestiney I'm making a game and this is the background music to it. It's kind of like a ninja game, so japanese I guess? Anyway, I just want some critique please. I know there are a LOT of repeats but that was intended (it is background music anyway). Thank you https://musescore.com/user/911416/scores/444336
I wrote this for the game I am creating,but I only yesterday started composing for the first time and I would like to hear advice,critique and opinions for it.
Thnx in advance!
I've been composing for a while, but this is my first good (in my opinion) song that i've made.
