So . . . this is my third or so stab at arranging Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" as accurately as possible. What I need here is basically feedback . . . if anybody who's familiar with the musical or the song can please give me some criticism, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm almost to an eighth favorite, so it will soon be eligible for posting here if all goes well. In the meantime, I want to thank anyone kind enough to look at this in advance.
[PLEASE NOTE]: The orchestrations are not finished, and the dynamics are just embarrassing. I will update these in the future, and work on the guitar riffs towards the end. In the meantime . . .
https://musescore.com/user/18595666/scores/4890545 this is my solo violin brahms with like 50 likes?? thats enough right?
I honestly think 10 comments is a lot considering the comments I usually get are request or questions.
It seems I'm now advertising another new group. (Well, technically, the group I'm about to advertise isn't "new," but nobody besides me has joined it yet at the time of this writing.) The Musescorer Enochulous has made a group called "Genesis Games Music Team" (link here: https://musescore.com/groups/1892176) and is looking for composers and/or other music department members to help him create and share music for some games he is planning on making. (As far as I can tell, right now he's working on one called ZeroBlade Run.) If you're interested in composing for a video game, I recommend you check it out.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
I have just created a new group called "Community Remix Competitions." In this group, you can enter contests where you have to arrange other Musescorers' music within certain restrictions. If you want to learn more, here's a link: https://musescore.com/groups/remixcomp
I created a group, that ranks the best original compositions. If you like, have a look at https://musescore.com/groups/1098311 and join us. The twelve highest ranked scores and composers will be published every week.
My new album "Rag Tales" is out now. You can find it on Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, and Google Play among others. I got started right here on Musescore when I was invited to the ragtime players group. Please check it out. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you friends. Just search for " CJ Brandt" or "Rag Tales". Thanks again
I just joined this group today, and I'm excited to read through and listen to your stuff.
I have this big project that I'm working on: I'm rewriting all of the songs from the musical Hamilton for concert band. If you guys could listen to my score and give feedback, that'd be great!
Thanks so much!
(P.S. This is not advertising, my score has 1,200 views as of Sunday, March 5 at around 8:00 EST)
So after being on Musescore for 18 weeks, 3 days, I’ve noticed a couple things that the average user should apply, to make everyone’s time on Musescore enjoyable and productive.
First of all, the system is rigged for “pro users.” In a random selection of 27 pros, the average number of followers was 220, when a similar sample of well-known non-pro-users turned up none with even 200 followers, 10% below the AVERAGE of the “pros.” Now, a case can be made that non-pro-users are not as committed composers, therefore not being as good. However, a composer’s piece seems to be legitimized if that little pro icon is down by the user’s name. Musescore users, especially pros, should not be prejudiced by not looking at a certain composer’s material if that user is not a pro.
So here’s my solution to this problem: be courteous. That’s all. There should be some etiquette that gets applied. Here is my list for how EVERY user should treat every other Musescore user:
I – if a user follows you, check out their music. You may be surprised with what you hear.
II – if a user favorites a work of yours, check out their music. If they like your music, it shows that you have similar tastes.
III – if a user comments on a piece of yours, check out their music. If they took the time to listen to a piece of yours, they deserve your respect for being a good audience.
Now, this list is not comprehensive. Just be courteous, and do what you would want others to do to you. The golden rule is key here.
I hope that those who read this pay attention to it, and take it to heart. There are so many great non-pro-users who don’t get the recognition they deserve, simply because they are not a pro user.
Thanks for reading this rant. :)
I was wondering if any of you would like to critique my third draft, the most recent thing I uploaded. You all obviously have experience writing good music, and I want as many ears on it as possible. And maybe (in the smallest realm of possibility) I could add my score to this group.
Here it is: https://musescore.com/user/3821191/scores/2962336
I just updated some simple text on my score asking people to SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOU TUBE CHANNEL.
And now all my pieces were re uploaded to all the groups I initially put them in.
I made a bug request to fix this in the MuseSCORE Forum. Sorry for a little bit too much of Andy uploads in your group.... it was an accident.
I've updated my song "Inspiration: Before the Journey"! It's still a work in progress, so I'd really appreciate it if you listened to it and gave me some feedback! Just make sure to comment on the actual song, not this discussion. Otherwise I won't see it ;D
Here's the song: https://musescore.com/aaron_david/inspiration-before-the-journey-wip
Okay, here's the deal. I've got 96 followers right now. That's getting close to a milestone.
Click on my name and then click the Follow button, and if there are 100 of you by the time I get up tomorrow morning, I'll post a special thank-you song for you all.
Hi everybody! I just wrote a concertino for Oboe, Violin, & Tutti. I am an oboist, so I am aware of what the oboe part would be like to play, but I don't know much at all about violin fingerings, bowing, etc. If anyone here is a violinist and would like to help, I'd love some insight into this thing's playability - although, it's not hard in general. Also, if anyone plays any other instrument involved and notices something weird, it'd be great if you pointed it out. Thanks!
