Violin and Cello duet

A short little composition for Violin and Cello. This is my first time using MuseScore, and I would like some constructive criticism.

Very nice. As a piano player, I would suggest you extend the piano part a bit, but that's just me. At any rate, I like it and I think it's a decent piece!

Really nice harmonic composition. A tad short maybe, but very enjoyable nonetheless. I see the cello and violin scores are of similar difficulty. Interesting (I play the cello).

As a fellow newbie, I find it useful to place the higher playing instruments higher up on the score and the lower playing instruments lower, while percussion is at the very bottom. Of course grouping by section and instrument type. Considering you only have three instruments in this composition, however, I doubt that is a concern. ;)

You are right. The higher instrument should be higher. This makes it easier to read for almost every instrument except probably squeeze boxes since their lower notes are higher on the keys. Still, the lower the note is, the lower it is on the staff, so consider this relevance.

Hello, I have Musescore Pro +, however, there is no option for Violin, Cello, and Piano Trio. I also can't do cello duets or cello solo. I don't know why, could someone please help me locate more options for instruments?

Pro or Pro+ has got nothing to do with this (and didn't even exist 11 years ago when this thread started), the MuseScore Editor is completly free. And you can have Violin, Cello and Piano in a score, no problem at all, there's just no template for that.
Just add those instruments to a score.
