Song Feedback

Hello, I am working on a composition and I've hit a wall. Can someone listen to my piece (specifically measures 57 to the end)? I don't know if it flows. So, if you want context I would start from measure 52. One thing I am stuck with is what chord should I add to measure 64 to fit with the cello pa...

I'm not sure what you're asking. The notation in the picture looks fine.

Tips for structuring practice session

Hello, I wrote a piece and just had a lesson with three fellow students who are going to be playing it. We played through the piece once through and then replayed tricky parts. My thing is I am bad at telling others what to do. How can I make these sessions effective? It’s tricky for me to know exac...

Last Counterpoint Question

Hello, Thanks so much for all your help. This is my last counterpoint question. I am doing a counterpoint for alto sax and piano. I had the piano line in bass clef. But I think the ranges were weird and incorrect. So, I transposed the bass notes to treble. Now I am second guessing myself and wonderi...

Is the Alto Sax and Piano Transposed Correctly

Hello,

I am writing for alto sax and piano. The piano is in F major and the Alto sax is in D Major (which I believe is F on an alto sax). I am just wondering if I transposed the notes correctly.

Thanks

This is my first time doing this.

Can someone check my score?

hello,

Can someone check over my score and see if it looks professional? I don't know if the pages are crowded in terms of too many measures on each page (particularly the last page).

Thanks

Still Having Formating Trouble

Hello, I have been trying to fix the formatting on my school but haven't had any luck. Could someone do it for me and help me? I need this done by Friday. I am new to finale and this seems like it would take 10 minutes for someone with finale experience. I would rather be done with this since I am o...

Re: Formatting Check

Thanks so much! I have made some changes but I am still having a tough time with the spacing of the staves to make it better. Also, should I fix the playback of the two flutes somehow?

Thanks! Also, I can't seem to make the dynamics line up no matter what I try and measure 49 is still messed up.

Formatting Check

Hello, Can someone check my formatting and see if it looks good. I am trying to make my score look professional. I tried to add less systems (4) per page but it messed with my score and moved stuff around. So, I went back. I also moved the bottom staves of each group to create more space between the...

Formatting Help

Hello,
I am using finale for my composition and some of the spacing between my grouped staves is off. Here is a pic: https://imgur.com/YEmHJA4
As you can see some of the dynamics and some notes between staves are on top of each other. How do I fix this format wise?

Thanks
