Over winter break, when I should have been working on my pieces I've started for my degree, I procrastinated and wrote this piano piece instead. It's a fun little thing which isn't too deep or meaningful I suppose, but that's the kind of stuff I like.

I showed it to my mum to play (who is a piano teacher and a very good sightreader) and she said she quite liked it, but one suggestion she had was that around the last page and a half or so, the tempo should gradually increase slightly so that it wasn't just the same thing as the start all over again, although to me there's enough variation I put in already. She said as a teacher, she would probably suggest to her students to start speeding up at least near the end. I'll be showing this to my tutor once term starts up again for their opinion as well.

My mum also said the piece could definitely be useful for school examinations here in Australia, where one of the pieces is required to be an Australian work composed within the last 25 years, and that she was willing to try it out on some of her students.

This is great! I found a couple of the changes to be a bit too abrupt, namely the one at 35, but it flowed nicely with a charming harmonic language.
173 to the end I think could be worked on, or at least led into better. It kind of came out of nowhere for me personally.
Nice job!
