Hello,

I play piano since 10 years with a teacher and I try to learn composition by myself.

I read some books about harmony, it is a bit hard for me. I think I will try to learn counterpoint soon.

This is a very short and simple piece I composed to practice :

I am very impressed by the quality of the works in this forum. I am posting here because I am searching for some advices to progress and learn how to compose more elaborated pieces.

Please excuse my mistakes of english, I am french.

Thank you

This is a nice litte étude! You managed to experiment with the circle of fifths but still make a pleasant-sounding work of music. The live rendering was also a nice touch.

Welcome to the forum!

Thank you very much ! Your message encourage me to continue.

I am thinking about writing some minuets inspired by classical composers to progress.

This is a good music! You don't need to write more elaborate works so to speak, just look at Philip Glass for example. I like this piece I think it has interesting ideas and I would like to hear more! Keep going

Thank you for your message. I am glad you liked it. You are right, it is not necessary to do too complex things.

I started to learn counterpoint and I decided to start a more elabored work... something like a sonata.

I just started to write the introduction (a few seconds). It is a good start in your opinion ? Can I improve it ?

I also share a little melody idea using my small counterpoint knowledge.

The counterpoint sounds actually pretty good, Im no expert though! The "sonate" is very short so I don't hear a lot going on there but the etude and this small counterpoint seem a very good starting point, in my opinion of course.

I will still work to do more elaborated counterpoints (with more voices). 🙂
