Biography [2] Mnmwert

due to my horrendously busy schedule I have not posted this. But this is one of the biographies that got deleted. It is a lot the same but I believe written a lot better thanks to @colorsofsound1. So here it is...…...


Welcome to Musescore News and Biographies. Today we have the honor of interviewing fellow musescorer Micah, more widely known by his musescore name - ♩♫𝓂𝓃𝓂𝓌𝑒𝓇𝓉♫♩. Our guest is a Musescore veteran with over one thousand four hundred followers as of writing. He is also an active member in multiple groups such as the RSA community.

News: Hello! It’s great to have you here with us today, Micah. Let’s start with a simple question, why do you think people follow you?
Micah: I think people follow me because I give them something back. The goal of my music is to give glory to God, and to inspire and heal those who listen to it. I also think that my story of how I came to music inspires people to accomplish their dreams. I'm also able to write in almost any style, so I have a very diverse audience.

News: Certainly! Would you consider yourself successful?
Micah: Well, If this is where God wants me to be right now, then yes I consider myself successful. But I do have a dream of where I want to be when I am an adult, and I have a list of goals that I need to accomplish to get there.

News: Sounds great! You do have a large following, but, which followers are your most active ones?
Micah: There are a good amount, so I'm sorry if I forget anyone of you but: Kenobiingdolon2019, Lizzapie, Rebecca Y, Robin M. Butler, Elliot Butler, Lariendeslapins and Noble Ewe.

News: Well, on the topic of following; why do you follow others? Do you have a checklist for things?
Micha: I don't have a checklist on what makes me follow other people (laugh). I generally follow people when something about their music appeals to me. Lizzapie, Robin M. Butler, Elliot Butler, and Celthyan all right awesome film music. Rebecca Y writes some amazing piano solos, and Kyle Soliz, who I followed more recently writes some amazing pieces with the piano and a pad. Other times I follow people if I've gotten into a cool conversation with them, or if they are nice.

News: Moving on, why do you think you are one of the top users of this platform?
Micah: To be honest it depends what you mean by top users. In regards to me being a top user in terms of comments, I love this site a lot, and thought, well this is something I can be good at. Who knows, someday I may be no. 1. Although, I have a couple of contenders. In terms of music I've never really considered myself to be a top user, there are plenty of people on this site who compose much better than I (do), or have a much larger following. I don't really mind though, I'm just here because of my love of music. In terms of my followers though I was added to a recommended user section last year during a trial period, and so I gained most of my followers within a span of a week, as everyone who was creating a profile saw my profile. Although I didn't really like it at first, I can't say I didn't mind it later. Other people though disagreed and the devs took down that feature. I don't mind that though, I'd rather have people follow me because of my music then because I was recommended.

News: That’s amazing! Who are your first and last followers right now?
Micah: My first follower was rkarle, and as of writing this my most recent follower was EMH@2018. Shout out to them and the rest of my followers, thank you guys so much!

News: What made you gain so much popularity?
Micah: As I said earlier, I gained most of my followers while I was in a recommended section in musescore. As for being a 'top user' in terms of comments, it really kicked off about a year ago when I hit page two. I felt like this was something I could really accomplish, and I've been working at it ever since.

News: Alright, who are your favorite musescorers?
Micah: I have a lot of favorites on musescore. At the moment I'm really liking Lizzapie, Robin and Elliot Butler, Celthyan, Rebecca Y, and Kyle Soliz, among others. In the past I really liked Aaron David and Mollymawk when they were active.

News: Okay. Do you have a ‘‘most embarrassing moment’’?
Micah: Oh wow that is a tough one, well lets see... When I was around 8 or 9, I played a piece in Suzuki Book 4 (Vivaldi A minor mvt 1). There was this really difficult passage that I was worried about which I worked very hard on, but unfortunately I ended up messing it up so bad I had to stop the pianist and completely restart the entire piece. I was really embarrassed, but everyone came up to me afterwards and congratulated me on staying up there and playing through it even though I had messed up. My parents were also proud of me. I learned that it doesn't matter whether you mess up if you've practiced, so long as you enjoy yourself.

News: So, outside of music; do you have any other hobbies?
Micah: Hobbies..... Well at the moment beyond school I really don't do much except for reading. I love to read, whether it be fiction or nonfiction. I love some of the older classics, and 20th century dystopian. I just finished reading Gulliver's Travels. In the past I'd play some video games or dabble in some computer programming but after a while I didn't really have time for that anymore.

News: As has been tradition; we will end this interview on a light note. The question is: what is your favorite color?
Micah: My favorite color is yellow, like the sun. It helps me brighten up especially when I'm feeling more blue.

News: Alright, Micah. It was a blast to have you here with us today and thank you for your time!

Biography [4] Legendian

so this is more of a send off but a biography just the same. thanks again to @OatmealBlonde for doing a terrific job on this.
Legendian

   Our interview today begins with an ending. John Lavingstony, known best by his iconic fox and the user name Legendian, has announced his eventual departure, ending nearly eight months of involvement in the Musescore community. Musescore News seized the opportunity to interview him for his story...

News: We'll start with some easy questions; what's your favorite color and place to visit?
Legendian: My favorite color is Blue; my favorite place to visit would be the National Red Wood Forest, and Catalina Island.

News: Do you have any interesting facts about yourself or funny stories to share?
Legendian: Something about me that most people don't know, is that I used to sell rocks as a kid (age 8), I'm friend's with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), and I'm a pretty close relative to Carrie Fisher.
My most embarrassing moment is when I was in the drive way to Tommy's Burgers, I accidentally shot the paper casing of my straw perfectly at the window receptionist straight through the car window on accident... I'd never seen my friend's face turn that shade of purple in my life. Couldn't even hear him laugh. xDD

News: Okay; now let's hear your Musescore story. Where did you start, and how successful do you see yourself now?
Legendian: I didn’t even know MuseScore existed until December of 2018 when my friend’s sister told me about it and how useful it was to find music created by others. So, I created an account, downloaded songs, then realized I had a natural gift to arrange songs by ear and decided to take things to the next step. Before I knew it, I had gotten 116 followers merely about 5 months later. I would say I’m kinda successful. My followers to score ratio is 116/5 so I’d say those are pretty good stats.

News: Speaking of followers, who are some of your best supporters on Musescore?
Legendian: My first follower was BotW Link and my last follower is Flat2.5. My favorite person on MuseScore would most definitely be “my twin” (Jaybird1). He’s an incredible guy who’s kind and shares the same values as me..... (as well as having the same of pretty much everything else as me. 😂😂😂). He's a great guy and has an amazing talent for arranging and composing (can't wait for you guys to here his compositions)! I also have loved the company of CountryHomes with her enthusiastic, kind, cheerful and comedic personality, Super Goron’s joy and geekiness with BotW, and BotW Link’s ideas and talent. Love it. 😂

News: So why do you think people have followed you, and do you have similar expectations when following other users?
Legendian: What I think makes people follow me is that I try to be kind to everyone. I can relate almost to everyone I’ve talked to on here and I believe that they appreciate that. I’ll follow those I really enjoy talking to more than those who have good scores. To me, scores and talent doesn’t define one’s personality or being, but on how they display themselves despite fame and recognition.

News: You won't be around Musescore for much longer, so how would you like to be remembered?
Legendian: When I leave MuseScore soon, I'd like everyone to remember me as someone who was kind, reassuring, someone who you could always look towards for help, someone you could always have a good time with and know you'd make a friend with afterwards. That's my wish. Most of all, I just hope everyone will remember me. I know I haven't been a member for very long, but I think I'd like that.

And that finished our brief interview with Legendian, the composer, musician, and good friend to many on Musescore. He will be missed, but we also celebrate the new chapter that he's beginning. Fortunately, his profile (

will remain open, allowing more users to find his work. Follow him for a highly anticipated website reveal!

Biography [3] Rebeccca Y

due to some unforeseen circumstances all the biographies got deleted so if you happen to have a copy of the other ones please let me know. [even if you know what was written and would like to write them out please let me know]

Unless you live under a rock (and that’s unlikely; you’d need to have pretty good wifi), you’ve probably seen Rebecca Y’s activity on Musescore. A member since 2017, Rebecca has composed and arranged numerous pieces but is, perhaps, best known for founding and moderating “Randomly Screwing Around”, a chat group for, well, just that. Recently Musescore News had the pleasure of interviewing her…

News: You're one of Musescore's top users; let's hear your success story.
Rebecca: I was an active user from the start when I made my account. I was always commenting in groups, making discussions, and commenting on other people's scores. So people saw me around a lot. And then 6 months after I joined Musescore, I made RSA, which became a huge hit (so I posted a bunch of comments in there as well). Chatting with people here is fun! But it's not just the followers/comments/RSA/etc; if I never joined this site I never would’ve been able to develop the way I did in composition. Since joining the site, the rate I was developing at composing increased drastically, since I was able to get inspiration from other composers on here and receive feedback. And all the support from everyone just made everything even better.

News: So who are some of your devoted followers, and why, in your opinion, do they follow you?
Rebecca: probably mnmwert, lizzapie, Keno, lareinedeslapins, CrazyClique, Mr. Peabody, Skylighter, Ethan Toavs, and miscellaneous02. Ruby Liz (Cl4rin3t) and Celthyan used to be really active followers of mine as well and were probably the first two people I actually got to know better and chat regularly with on here (though not anymore - this was a while ago, and both of them aren't very active anymore other than to post scores). But Ruby still comes back when she's active so I still consider her one of my devoted followers. :P My first follower is Clara Ungerer, who followed me 12 days after I joined. And my most recent one is migamic, who followed me about 8 minutes ago xD I think people follow me because a) we’re good friends on Musescore, or b) they like my music; though I really hope people follow me because they can draw inspiration from my compositions, which is one of my primary goals when composing.

News: On the flip side, what do you look for before following another user? Is there a checklist, for example?
Rebecca: I don't follow a lot of people, but when I do it's when I genuinely look forward to each and every upload and like having their uploads in my notifs. This usually happens when a) they're a really good friend of mine and I'm eager to see all their stuff or b) they're a mind-blowing composer.

News: Okay, this one is optional, but do you have a favorite person on Musescore?
Rebecca: idk, kinda hard to pick a favourite.

News: Let's hear one fact about you that most people don't know...
Rebecca:  I was initially hesitant on making RSA because there was already a chat group called the Discussion Group. In fact, I wanted to make RSA the second I got kicked off discord, but actually ended up deciding AGAINST it. And then the next day I was like ehhh...it wouldn't hurt so why not xD Turns out that was a good decision :P

News: We'll end on a light note; what's your favorite color, dream place to visit, hobbies other than music?
Rebecca: Probably blue or purple, Six Flags xDDD (I've heard about a lot of the scary rides and I really wanna go!) I really like psychology . I spend a lot of time watching psych documentaries and stuff and reading articles about it.

That concluded our interview with Rebecca Y, composer, arranger, and founder of RSA, one of Musescore's most popular groups. You can check out her work here (
