I am a proud violinist, violist, and composer! I am going to be a sophmore in high school and have been composing since 6th grade. I haven't become really serious about my pieces until 2 years ago. Writing the music is NEVER the problem with me...for me its getting people to PLAY it! I have tried getting music ensembles together at my school, but groups usually: 1. don't practice 2. Don't care 3. Think the music is too hard, or 4. Don't meet/ come to rehearsals. So as a composer who really wants his music performed, how can I get an emsemble to be serioius about my music, though I'm no Beethoven, at minimal cost? I have also thought about entering my pieces into a youth composition competition, but I don't know of any. Any recommendations? Thanks!
