I updated a song I posted a while ago, and I'd love any feedback I can get! Thanks :) https://musescore.com/user/13020131/scores/5213930
The first two ('Final Battle' & 'Final Battle (Dark)') are versions of the same score I wrote for my friend's video game. The third link is the main theme for the game ('The Forest').
'Final Battle (Dark)'
Hey guys I just uploaded another one of my orchestrations and I would love any feedback on this piece. The song is about a student who discovers a book in her school that can conjure fantasy creatures and lead her on an adventure.
Thanks so much for a listen!
My most recent composition is complete! Please give it a listen and leave any comments and feedback after. Thank you!
Hello! I'm a self-taught composer, and this is my second full piece (I've written things like character themes for friends that I don't count as full pieces) and, although I've been working on it throughout the summer, I'm still unhappy with it. I'm looking for critiques and tips on how I can improve this piece.
Hello everyone! I wrote an original piano piece titled Memories. It needs a little cleaning, but I would love if you would give it a listen and some feedback! Thank you in advance!
For a while I've been creating, fixing, and expanding on my first original full-band piece, and I'm thinking of publishing it soon, so it would be greatly appreciated to get some feedback on this, see what people think, because I am eager to show and publish my work to the rest of the world. https://musescore.com/user/27195176/scores/4889018
After a while of thinking, I have finally decided to upload my first ever composition (made when I was in middle school). I have not messed with it, so the theory or timing may be weird, but I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out and give me feedback!
This is a little piece that I composed recently. I'd appreciate it if anyone could provide some feedback, and also maybe a name for the piece (since I haven't found one that quite fits yet...). Thanks!
Anyways, I came up with this piece after listening to Philip Glass' String Quartet No 3 - Mishima, and the simplistic style that he wrote with. I also really liked his use of polyrhythms in that piece, so I decided to try to incorporate them in this one as well...
Ive had this idea to make a show that is only with MuseScore composers. It will also have a marching band version along with it.
Please comment your selections of music with your full name (I know its weird asking for that but I dont want something like this on the cover of the score ex. "Concert Cencerto for Bass Trombone by Yaboisaxplayer209". Sounds weird right.?)
Please dont submit other peoples works, show them this discussion first and let them make the comment.
If you cant find any, you can also comment some famous pieces. Like "Mother Earth Fanfare by David Maslanka"
Im really excited to work on this as a project by myself to expand my abilities to write. :)
I have to shoe that score in a discussion because i need to be a MuseScore Pro user to upload scores to any group, so i let you this score let me know what do you think about this and like it
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!
Hey guys, if you have synesthesia (i.e. perceive graphemes and music with colours and moods, or taste colours/sounds. Basically stimuli in one sense triggers another sense), then please join my Musescorers with Synesthesia group!!! Here's the link. https://musescore.com/groups/musescorerswithsynesthesia
Hey guys, if you have synesthesia, do you associate scale degrees or notes with colours?
You may have noticed that I've uploaded a piece called "Rainbow". In it, I've made a theme that creates a rainbow inside my head. So the notes of this theme are G (red), F(orange), A (yellow), D (green), and E (blue). I don't associate any note with purple.
I would also love to see what your "rainbow theme" is!!! If you compose a piece using it, please tag it #SynesthesiaRainbow so we can all see everyone's different rainbow pieces by clicking on the tag. Remember, this is not word painting; it's something that triggers your synesthesia to perceive a rainbow.
Here's the link to my rainbow piece : https://musescore.com/rebeccayang/no-14-rainbow
Here is a stand tune i wrote for my high school (Helena High School). It is very cool!
1. When you're playing something in sonata form, you don't pay attention at the recap and you end up going back to the bridge at the exposition. But by the time you realize you made that mistake it's too late.
2. When there's that one spot in a piece you're practicing that needs just a little bit of work, so you practice it. But then it starts getting worse and worse and WORSE. Like WHYYYYYYYYY???
3. When you just simply zone out while you're playing and then when you remember that you're playing you don't know where the heck you are. So you just end up depending on muscle memory, which sometimes doesn't last very long
4. When you just can't remember how many times you did some repeat. Like you could already have repeated something five times and on the sixth time around you're like: Did I do that repeat or no? I'll just do it just in case I didn't.
5. (maybe this is just me) When you listen to a recording of yourself playing and it's the crappiest thing you've ever heard (I'm pretty sure I'm not actually THAT HORRIBLE cause I went to a festival and got second place, which wasn't as horrible as I thought I'd get). And if you and someone else play the same piece, it ALWAYS sounds better when they play it.
6. If you play in a wind ensemble or orchestra: you weren't sure when to come in so you looked at one of your section mates to check if you were right. But then they come in and you miss your entry. Or they came in the wrong place (and dragged you with them) and you two make fools of yourselves because sometimes the conductor has to stop everyone because of it. Or they were also looking at you to see where the entry was and now you're both lost
7. If you're in lessons: You've practically perfected a piece after practicing it and practicing it and PRACTICING IT at home. You run it through a few times without any mistakes. Then you play it at your lesson in front of your teacher and screw up EVERYTHING. And he/she gives you that disappointed look and tells you that you should practice more. And you're just like "okay", but inside you're like "WHY, I PRACTICED SO MUCH! IT WAS PERFECT!!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! " But of course you don't tell your teacher that because you're way too embarrassed to let them know you spent so long on a piece and the final product was the crap you presented to them
So how relatable was this? Please comment below. And feel free to add anything to the list. Thanks!!
I have created a new group for people who want to learn the basics of music theory. The first couple units will probably be kinda tedious, but the readings and exercises are interactive and enjoyable. The format is almost a competition, further adding to the fun. Units 1-3 are now available! Check us out!
Since the discussions are kinda out of order, check the "about this group" area for the links to get to the specific units. :)
So if you're anything like me, you probably get REALLY nervous when it comes to festivals, exams, or even recitals. So there was this one time last year when I was doing my RCM Level 10 piano exam. I was playing the Prelude and Fugue in D Minor from Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier 2, and literally TWO LINES before the end of the fugue, I COMPLETELY forgot what my left hand was supposed to do and I just crashed right then and there. And the examiner was just sitting there staring at me waiting for me to do something, but my mind was COMPLETELY blank and I just sat there panicking. The examiner had to show me the music.
I passed my exam though.
So if any of you have similar horror stories (doesn't matter what instrument) to share please post them on here. It'll be good to know I'm not the only one who screws up like this. Thanks!!
I have a theory that people tend to be drawn to the descending thirds sequence (Canon in D+'s harmony progression). All the songs sound really nice and are always catchy. Recently, Bad Things by Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello, a song that followed the sequence, skyrocketed up the top charts. What do you guys think? Here's a list of songs that follow the pattern:
Canon in D Major
One Tin Soldier
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Friends Forever (graduation song)
Jolly Old St. Nick
Hey guys! So I thought this was just some random thing that I did but it turns out that a bunch of people also do this: I associate colours with numbers, letters, scale degrees, and notes. So here are the colours I associate with scale degrees. If you also do this, please comment.
Supertonic: varying shades of green
Mediant: varying shades of blue
Subdominant: orange, sometimes yellowish
Dominant: red or hot pink
Submediant: bright yellow
Subtonic/leading note: varying shades of grey
Just wanted to see how your perceptions of music differ from mine. And if you've already seen this post for the third time, it's because I wanted to post this in all my groups so more people could see it.
