Though I've been a MS 'member' for more than 12 months, it's only just occurred to me that I am in a position to give radio airplay to some of your original scores. To do this, the performance must be with real instruments and a of sufficient quality to be broadcast (clean recording, well-balanced as between instruments, etc.). .
The radio station is in Melbourne, Australia, and I have a regular (weekly) breakfast program dedicated to 'classical' music. Presently, the program is a three-hour show. It is preferable that the work be between 3 -7 minutes long. Arrangements of modern scores (i.e. by living or recently deceased composers) cannot be played without permission of the copyright holder of the original work.
Whilst, I have broad tastes and exercise them over the duration of the program, consistently dissonant and/or dislocated pieces (like, e.g. Webern) are unlikely to be played. Like all radio stations, the content is expected to follow certain patterns, especially in the breakfast show (Prokofiev-like, is fine).
The radio station is not-for-profit and is subscriber and donation funded - it does not receive government assistance, therefore, while it has to accountable, through the Australasian Performing Right Association, the work will not be broadcast if a royalty is to be paid.
If you have a recording of your original score that you like to receive airplay, let me know.
You cannot send files through the MS email but after contact has been made, files can be sent one-to-one. If you have a CD recording, I can advise to where it should be sent.
I look forward to 'hearing' from you.
Over the last 4 weeks (22/10/16) I have broadcast music by MS composers - you could be next.
Hello Everyone! As you might know, I am the Group Administrator, but I have a challenge to all you arrangers and there comes a reward. The Requirement is to arrange one of my newer songs that I had made not in musescore, but another program. Here's the song:
First Place: arranger get's to become an Administrator
Second Place: You get a follow from me and constant feedback
Third Place: A pat on the Back
If you do decide to participate, remember there's only 29 people in this group (as of now), and the likability of someone accepting this challenge is low, so if you do decide to do this challenge, your chances of winning First or Second Place are Pretty High.
I just uploaded my first transcription competition, and would love it if you were to check it out. It is a competition for people to try and recreate a piece I wrote a while ago, in a program outside of MuseScore. I'm on a journey to find a selection of the finest transcribers MuseScore.com has ever seen.
Here's a link to the competition: https://musescore.com/rookwizard/scores/2196296
And here's a link to the piece you'll be arranging: https://soundcloud.com/spencervanderkley/the-lone-archer
All the other details can be found in the description of the score. So, if you're interested, have a crack at it! The more competitors the better!

COMMENT IF YOU ARE PARTICIPATING!!
Recreation is a new group on MuseScore I have made for arrangers / transcribers to share their arrangements that were requests by other arrangers or people.
Soon there will be arrangement challenges, which will be quite difficult, but you'll get rewarded several different options if you win. (We don't have enough arrangers yet)
There is a discussion page on the group discussing rules and regulations. Not everything is official, but feel free to join.
I really feel as if there is no "commentary" group that gets absolute feedback.
So I made another group with rules and regulations to ensure this. For some of you, the regulations are nothing, But be sure to read the group description if you'd like to join.
I do need some responsible moderators to help with overseeing the group. I do not have the time, especially with school and work, to always keep an eye on who's commenting.
Here's the group: https://musescore.com/groups/guaranteedfeedback
Read rules and suggestions before joining.
Please check out my new piece "Beautiful Mess"! Let me know what you think. Also, could someone help me make a video score or make a "recording" so it sounds like an actual symphony is playing it?
