So, here's the rules. This month's theme is: Orchestra and Electronic* at the same time!
You have until the end of April to submit it. To submit, post the song on musescore and then comment the link into this discussion. The winner gets bragging rights and the choice of theme for the next competition. Good luck and have fun! :D
1. Has to be an original composition
2. No using the Lick
3. Has to have Orchestral instruments and Electronic* at the same time
4. You must have fun
5. You may team with someone else
6. Has to be submitted by April 30th or you are disqualified
7. No taking other people's ideas
I can't believe it! I'm about to hit 50 followers (only need 7 more)! I know that it isn't mush, but it is something right? Tell if you would like to see an original composition, or an arrangement of a song you like. I'm going to take probably 3-5 ideas so choose wisely as I'm putting this discussion in all the groups I'm in.
Each one of you has a day to finish your part- if you can't do it in time, well...

Thank you for agreeing to participate and let's make this a good song!
Remember, 1-10 measures each!
Hey guys, @kdanny772 here! We reached 20 members!
(But to be honest I'm too lazy to make another composition-)
I mean we should be more creative and try something else (that takes less work- I mean)
Here's an example:
We could write 1-10 measures, depending on how much you want to write, and you could write your name above the part where it starts!
We're going to start composing at 7 AM GMT January 26th, and the first 1-10 measures will be provided by the admins, @MudkipMusic123 and @kdanny772 (wait I forgot to tell-)!
(You can find your time for GMT here:
We're going to decide who composes second and etc. by using a random app selector with all of the usernames of the people who decide to participate.
You can choose to participate by commenting Yes! or Whatever or Bleh or :P. You must include whether you'd like the song's mood to be happy or sad or etc. Like before, we'll use the randomizer app to decide what theme to use.
Or you don't have to participate *whispers*
"killjoy- I mean bleh :P"

Hey everyone! I had an idea that would increase feedback on your pieces and keep this group from dying. I think it would be cool if every week a different person would comment on whoever wants their pieces listened to. I'm going to start a discussion, and everyone who wants to can put down one piece and I will listen to and comment on it by Sunday. I will take this week. If other people are interested, you can comment on this discussion and sign up for a different week. To keep things from getting too confusing, put the date of the start and end of the session in your comment and also in the title of the discussion you create. E.G.: I will take Jan 22 - Jan 28. We can have the weeks start on Mondays. Also, I would say don't submit any songs after Saturday morning or the person running that particular week may not get a chance to listen to the song. I'll go create my discussion now. :D
P.S. When you comment on someone's piece, even if you really don't like it, try to keep you comment positive. Do not critique more than 1-2 points, and end your post with a compliment on something they did well.
Hey guys! If you want me to listen to any of your pieces, I would be happy to! A few requests, though. Please post the link to your song in this discussion by the morning of Jan. 27 so I can listen to and comment on it by Jan. 28. Please post the link to a song on musescore, not youtube. If a song is on youtube, I can get distracted real easily and won't get school work done. Also, put an original song that you composed. Lastly, please just put one song. I won't have time to listen to several.
Please note: This is optional. Do not feel like you have to post a link to your song. Also, I will listen to it, and I will comment on it. So if you don't want me to comment, also don't post. I will try to give constructive feedback or at least a good job!
As kdanny772 already stated, more views leads to more comments which leads to improving skills. To get more views, you should add your scores to more groups. Since non-pro members can only post to 5 groups, choose which groups you post to wisely. Before you post a score to a group, you can see how many members are in that particular group. As a general rule, posting to a group that has more members will lead to more views for you. (As a side note, make sure the song you are posting is in accordance with what the group is for. In other words, don't post a Lord of the Rings song in a Star Wars group or something like that). :D The only exception that I can think of would be the We <3 Comments Group. That group gets so many scores posted to it, that I think most people don't bother viewing them.
If you get more views- it leads to more comments, which results in more feedback.
Feedback ultimately improves skills, which means you are able to improve by getting more views.
To do this, (wasn't like this before) you probably need a good cover photo. You can make one at canva.com (Musescore title page is A4) and either have enough instruments to leave the first page blank or you can increase the tempo of the first page to Musescore max (don't know how much) and give each measure on the first page A LOT of rests. That's one way.
Wow- we have more members than my compositions...
Which isn't a lot.
But still, the fact that each one of you came here in order to learn/teach is really cool.
(You don't have to do this, it's very, fully optional- but it would be nice.)
When we get to 10 members, (we have 8 right now) everyone could just compose a short (5~10) second song or arrangment for it... yes?
Just put it in our group and we can all enjoy it together thank you very much arigato gracias etc.
Thank you for joining this particular group, it means a lot to me. I hope we can share our ideas and give/recieve helpful pointers. I have no idea where you came from and I'm really thankful for that. Thank you for joining (again) and let's make this group a really good one (?)
