  1. May–June 2013 Competition

    I didn't get an entry in time for the last one so I'll try this. Are viola solos uncommon enough, or is that too similar to a violin?
  2. March–April 2013 Competition

    Yeah, I wrote something that's significantly less than 10 so I was thinking of adding a short 2nd movement for the heck of it. It doesn't really matter though.
  3. March–April 2013 Competition

    Are multimovement compositions ok if they're less than 10 minutes total?
  4. Hairpin Playback In Sibelius?

    Thanks Cadenza, that worked. I thought I had tried that already, but I must have been doing it wrong somehow the first time.
  5. Is there any way to create a decrescendo on one note? I have several instruments holding long notes, connected by ties, and I'd like them to dramatically decrescendo during the note (IE, fade out). I have put hairpins under the note but it has no effect on the playback. However, when the notes are not connected by ties, the notes change volume individually, and not gradually. Is it possible to change the volume of a held note while it is being played? I can upload an example if necessary. Thanks in advance.
  6. March–April 2013 Competition

    I'd like to enter this, if it's not too late. Hopefully it'll motivate me to finally finish something.
  7. Beginner: having trouble getting started

    Rosenskjold, that's exactly my problem. My mind is faster than my skills at notation, and when I write something it never sounds like what I was expecting when I play back the audio. I guess I just need more practice. I'll try doing some variations. Thanks so much to everyone, this is really encouraging.
  8. Beginner: having trouble getting started

    Thanks for your advice.
  9. I'm a violinist in high school, and I really want to learn how to compose music. I seem to always have ideas for pieces in my head, and I recently got Sibelius, but whenever I try to write something I get frustrated and I usually can't write more than a few measures. I'm taking AP Music Theory next year so hopefully that will help me, but I'm wondering if anyone here could give me some advice as well. Thanks in advance.
