Music Analysis and Critique

Before posting your music in this forum, our most popular, please make sure you have read the rules for how to post here. These rules are not intended to make your life difficult, but rather to create a positive way for members to easily read, listen and respond to your music analysis and critique requests. You can find the rules here and the forum here

Suggestions Wanted/Open to Revision

This forum is for members who would like to hear specific suggestions about how to improve their compositions. When posting to this forum, please bear in mind the following: a PDF score and an MP3 soundfile are required. Posts which do not contain both will be deleted. For those commenting on the original post, a score and a soundfile are also required, unless you are commenting on one specific part of the score (a short passage of only a few measures), in which case, a pdf of your suggested changes is enough.

    Welcome to the Composers' Forum, an online community of working professional and aspiring composers and songwriters. We hope you enjoy these forums and blogs and become active in our community.

    This is a great place to talk with composers just like you. You can see, hear, and communicate with composers of many different styles. Ask them what equipment they use, or how they feel about the mixolydian mode!

    This is a private forum that welcomes any composer to join. But we moderate closely to keep it on topic and useful for composers. We reserve the right to delete or ban posts, comments, or members.

    Our community is one of peers socializing and not a place of advertising and job hunting. Nor is it a 'myspace' with a race to spam as many people as possible to get clicks on your page.

    Please respect our members by not posting advertisements for yourself or products or sites you support, and please refrain from posting graphics on other members blogs/pages. We also have zero tolerance for piracy, and any music posted or any intellectual property that is found to not be legal will be banned.

    Get active and comment on other member's pages, make a blog post about your music, post in the forums. We are glad you are here!
