This is a Demo I made for a Music Production Course I will be giving soon, it will be a short course, just and introducion to the use of DAW, VST and libraries. We will end by re-creating this same track with the students. I made this thinking of what Epic Music usually sounds in trailers.

Those bagpipes-like things were mixed really oddly in the beginning... a bit too strident. Having them go to m9 on top of your V/vi chord was a weird choice too. Some of your cymbals also came out a bit too much in the beginning. 
Really great chord changes in the main loud section. A mix of phrygian and minor might be something to watch out for occasionally.
I also thought the last chord was a little bit weak, I'm not sure why. Maybe more bass needed or a high tonic. Either way, it just needed more to my ears.
I'm sure you'll teach your students well!

Hey, thank you both for your comments, I'll check those cymbals but that changes from one speakers to another.
