DELETED #8

Recommended Posts

Very lovely!

I love etudes and studies in certain ideas like your exploration of arpeggios, scales, etc. for every key. You did a good job! I found some notes that overlap in #3, but otherwise pretty flawless

First one: I think a little bit of variety would do well here. Doesn't seem to be much until the end.

Second one: I love the brevity of material here -and feel you could have done a bit more with it. Similar to the first one, your variation of the material doesn't provide as much variety.

Third one: This one has a more playful nature to it -that I like. One thing that would really benefit this one is a bit more contrapuntal usage. Not sure if you thought about maybe transforming the base material of this into a more fugue-like passage, but it would lend itself well.

I'm curious why these are all listed as being in C major?

The pieces are fine and could be useful. Thanks for sharing them. However, I would like to see more coherent melodies as well as more harmonic variations , possibly with some purposeful dissonances ( there is some of it in your second piece).

Those notes are supposed to be played at the same time by 2 fingers, as 2 independent voices. One example of this happening by greatest composer is Bach's Inventio no.1 where he does overlap 1 note for each hand, near the final part of the piece.

Thanks!

They're in c#, c minor and c major, not c major all. Read again. The # can't be written, so it deleted and seems as C
