  1. Hi Everyone! My friend recently asked me to write a double bass concerto for her! She told me that she wanted it in G major; I said I will write it for her but the problem is... I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN FOR SOLO DOUBLE BASS IN MY LIFE!!! Can someone please tell me how to write for double bass. Things like scordatura, chords, do's and don't's will greatly be appreciated! (By the way, this concerto is in a classical style so instrumentation is early classical as well.) If you want me to upload it, let me know! Thank You!
  2. Hello everyone, I have listened to Piano Concerto No. 5 in E♭ major, Op. 73, by Ludwig van Beethoven and, have fallen in love with it. After listening to this I have decided to write one of my own! Listed below are the characteristics of it. Key: A♭ major Tempo: 110 bpm Time Signature: 4/4 Instruments: 2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets (in B♭), 2 Bassoons, 4 Horns (in F), 2 Trumpets (in B♭), 2 Tenor Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone, Timpani, 1 Grand Piano, Violins 1, Violins 2, Violas, Violoncellos, and Contrabasses. I have chosen these instruments based on other piano concertos that I have listened to in the past, like Tchaikovsky No. 1 and Rachmaninoff No. 2 and would like to imitate them. This is my first piece of music that is being written for full orchestra. Any and ALL tips and tricks about orchestration, writer's block, creativity, creating new themes, motifs, or writing fun and exciting and fun, new music are very well needed! Please feel free to comment below about any and everything about anything about the piece. Thank You!
  3. If you want to write a piano trio it might be useful to learn about counterpoint and making sure that all the parts blend in together.
  4. Hello everyone! I am new to this website and I was scrolling upon google searching for a website just like this and I found it! Anyways, I have a dilemma. I am a 13 year old composer who has been composing for about a year and a half now. I have made a conscious decision to transition from computer composing to hand writing my compositions. So, I have been looking for SPIRAL BOUND manuscript paper that has 25 STAVES OR MORE for a symphony that I am writing (I know what you are thinking, "You are only 13 years old you don't need to write a symphony at this age". But I actually started the first movement and it is going really well.) So if any of you have any suggestions on what manuscript paper to buy please let me know as soon as humanly possible! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
