Looks quite good in general, given a quick skim read. It looks like
MusicComposition will work reasonalbly well for a written score, which
is nice!

One quick note: the proposed http://schema.org/genre already exists
with the definition "Genre of the creative work"; how about changing the
proposal so that the definition of "genre" simply becomes something like
"Genre of the creative work or group" with a correspondingly widened
domain?
