  1. In my school, when we enter into a new curriculum (by 11th grade), we're supposed to do something that we've never done before in order to strengthen and expand our understanding of the world around us (for those who may be in the know, I'm doing CAS for the IBDP programme next academic year). Being a composer, I decided to aim big and write a symphony. This is something I have truly never done before: not only is it a frightfully massive undertaking given how relatively new I am to composition, it is coupled with the fact that I'll be much busier next year than I have ever been (IBDP is known to do that). As a result, I've decided to take on this project the same way as I normally would with big, many-month assignments like this: I plan for them. This is what I've come up with so far for the first movement of this symphony: Opening fanfare on str.; intro to 1st mvt (Cm) → Enters principal theme; exposition (Cm) → Proceeds to development; 2nd theme is introduced (Fm → noodle around circle of fifths → F) Return to shortened opening; joins back into the introduction (Cm) → Re-development of previous themes into a 3rd theme (Dm → Fm → Fm7?) → Abridged opening, mixing with principal and 3rd theme; recapitulation of developed ideas (Cm) → Coda (Cm) Knowing full well that there are loads of musicians here who can definitely give me a hand, I want to know whether this is structure could suffice in powering a full symphonic orchestra, if it'll even work as a competent structure at all. I was gunning for a traditional sonata-allegro form, and I'm just going from what I know about symphonies and other large orchestral works regarding how sonata-allegro form works. If anybody's willing to look at it and give me advice, I'm all ears. Thank you!
  2. I'm currently working the 2nd movement of this symphony, but I would like suggestions for the 1st movement (comments, Ideas, Tips, etc.) Sheet Music: https://flat.io/score/5eef99454b53ee4e7d13f68e-my-music-score?sharingKey=28554ceb90a5639dd05223c384b97a11b95893f1e3642e694631f9971e29475dbc0741f00b48d266840b8fcbfb6eb584f694720100ed36c17fc404f9594ec2fe Thank you!!
  3. I hope to do something related to music in the future, but I have no idea where to start! I love music in general, and mainly listen to genres such as pop. I was hoping to try out songwriting as it seems so interesting, but like I said earlier, I don't know how to start. I tried writing lyrics, and it seems like with the proper inspiration, I can maybe work it out in that aspect. However, I need help finding a melody and instrumental...I dunno....is anyone willing to collaborate? I'd love to see how people come up with songs, and it would be a great learning experience for me. Also...any suggestions? Thanks a lot in advance!
  4. Hey Everyone, This has been a long time in the woodwork, but recently I discovered that out of everything (and there were a lot of possibilities), I really want to become a film composer. I was wondering if anyone has any tips/advice on how to go about it. I'm in a pretty small country (New Zealand), and I'm not so sure how helpful a three-year course would be in really equipping me for this (time, money, and where I am in the world - we travel a lot - are also considerations), and whether I'd actually get a job at the end of it. So I would really appreciate your insights and experience on this. So fire away! :) Cheers, and thank you very much in advance! KahliaSkye
