Rondo in C

February 17th, 2019 by

So I began my first foray into musical Rondo form today. I spent just over three hours composing this thing. Overall I’m pretty happy with it. Rondo means the music is made of 5 or 7 sections (in this case 5) labelled ABACA or ABACADA (7-part rondo). There are also ‘re-transitions’ between the sections which add to the length.

I really should learn to use a program such as Pro Tools or Reaper so I can do a proper recording with professional samples. Also, this music has no dynamics (it’s the same loudness throughout). There are some things you can do in MuseScore to adjust dynamics but I totally forgot about it.

I just bought a piano keyboard and I’m planning on getting Reaper which is a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) which will allow me to record music in much higher quality with better dynamics and phrasing. Pretty excited about that.

I’m pretty happy with the progress I’m making in music composition and I think this is an interest that will stick with me for years. Tell me what you think about this music in the comments!
