I am an amateur composer. This is the third piece that I have composed with

Sibelius and Note Performer! I hope you will enjoy it and give me some feedback!

You're doing a good job exploring a range of instruments and moods, but I feel like you transition from one to the next a little too quickly.  This feels like a video game soundtrack where the character is constantly going in and out of the village, in and out of the meadow, etc., so the theme music is constantly transitioning back and forth.  I'd love for you to hang out in each section a little longer.  There's enough material here to either make a single longer work, or to split into several movements.  It's all good stuff.  Get comfortable just hanging out with a particular bit of music for a while.  You're not going to bore us, I promise.  One easy way trick is to just repeat each section after you introduce it.  If you play the repeats back to back, you'll often find that you want to change one or two notes on the repeat, or swap which instrument is leading, vs. supporting, and that will be all it needs to maintain a sense of forward development.  This sounds great and I'll be looking forward to what you make next!

Thanks for your suggestion! The transition was bad because I only thought about making a short piece. I didn't want to bore you guys. I'll make it better in the next piece.
