Hi everyone, I just finished the 1st movement of what I'm hoping to be a symphony and wanted to know what you think. I know symphonies usually start with sonatas, but I wanted to start with a…Continue

"Sounds good. What program did you use to make this? Or did you record it live? Either way, it's a nice twist on what I normally hear of jazz. The bassline is super smooth."

"Hi Gav, Loved the pizzicato part. The overall sound is (like Dane Auburn said) very pleasant. I could imagine it in a game like the Sims or another easygoing game. The repetitiveness made me tune out a few times so I feel like if there were some…"

"Izzy, Bongos are indeed supposed to be tuned very high. Sometimes about 2 octaves above middle C. Yes, the tutti section does seem very busy. I can't hear much of what I see on the page. It's one thing to say, "Well, if it get's…"

"The comment about picking up the pace was very useful though, so thank you. I tried upping it by just 2 beats a minute and it already sounded much better and wasn't so dragging in the beginning."

"Thank you for your feedback. I tend to like shock value in my music, that's why it was very quiet and then I had all the instruments come in at once. It's sort of like, there's a calm environment with a girl crying, and then all…"

"Don't worry, you're not alone haha. It's the high bongo, which Noteflight created WAY too high-pitched. I just left it though, because if it gets played, the bongo probably won't sound as horrendous."

"I listened to the whole piece and enjoyed it. I agree with your take on the speed... the busier parts are fast enough. The "dirge" comment is relevant though... but I believe it's the intent of the mood you were after. I do agree with…"

"I think this fits perfectly the theme you intended. I listened to the whole thing. I am impressed with this work. The only thing I found a little annoying was the percussion parts that sounds like ticks or pops. Not sure which part this was because…"

Finished second movement for my symphony (Sierra Returns)

Hi, I just finished the second movement for the symphony I'm writing about a girl driven to insanity. It's about 5 minutes and 50 seconds long so if you took the time to listen and give me some feedback it would be very much appreciated. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful night! https://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/cdb989bc2ad76f55503e21053ac784b678090e13See More

Izzy Savides replied to OscoBosco's discussion Wrote a String Quartet. Would love some feedback and comments :)
"Wow, Saul practically took the words out of my mouth. Though because there are so many "themes", I wanted to suggest that you develop the one at 1:14 more. I personally love it and it could go so much farther than the few seconds you gave…"

"This is definitely the start of something intense and interesting. Not sure how you plan to create a symphonic piece from it, but there is clearly the makings of a good work. I love the percussion, again not traditionally symphonic, and the contrast…"

Hi! I'm a thirteen-year-old composer and I love writing music. I play the French horn in 2 bands and an orchestra, and I want to score video games and play horn professionally when I grow up. I mainly compose on Noteflight, as I don't have a better software. I prefer writing music for larger groups like concert bands and orchestras, but I also enjoy writing for string quintets. My favorite composers are Saint-Saëns, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Brahms, and Johann Strauss II
