Someone on Discord suggested that I compose a piece about space and stars. Coincidentally, I decided I wanted to try composing something for Concert Band instead of just a hodgepodge of random instruments. I didn't yet feel ready for full orchestra; I wanted to experiment with a larger amount of instruments than I was before, but I needed to figure out how the Concert Band instruments would sound playing the melodies that I had in mind. So I went into Musescore, and it had a Small Concert Band template. I took away the Euphonium because I figured the Tuba was enough. I added in marimba, glockenspiel, etc, because I wanted them to compliment the other instruments and also to add twinkle like the stars. I have about two minutes of the piece so far, and I'm currently trying to figure out where to go with it next. I know that I want the beginning eight notes to reappear later on. I tried a few soundfonts, and decided that the GeneralUser soundfont sounded the best to me.
I've recently been working on an orchestra piece, and here is the finished product (first draft, at least). I know some of the transitions could be smoother, and I need to add most of the brass parts still. Any advice? https://musescore.com/randomperson555/stars
