This is intended to be a place for people who wish to improve their compositions, or to help others improve their work (or both!) Members can post a thread for a new work, containing a sound file or recording of their composition, as well as any sheet music (if applicable).
Criticism could cover a number of things, but ideally will focus on the musical ideas, not so much the recording quality or performance (although these issues can be addressed if they are detrimental to an understanding of the music, such as a recording that is so bad you can't hear the notes properly).
An understanding of theory would be helpful to criticize, though ideas should not be criticized outright for not being "theoretically correct". Hopefully, people will not only learn from having their pieces analyzed, but will learn from analyzing the pieces others write and trying to explain themselves.
As a method of getting criticism, I propose that, once someone has made a thread with a new piece, they pm the members of this group to let them know. We don't need to label every thread as "C4C"; hopefully, members will help each other out even when there is no immediate benefit.
