Ask yourself what modern music is, then ask everyone you know. I bet a small handful agree it's mental masturbation in a conservatory. The composers you love had an impact on society, they communicated their message to the masses, to where their message was simple to understand but complex in musicality and MODERNNESS for their day .They had magnanimous personalities, whether it was subtle and timid or bold and brash. Your growth as a composer will come with not only your knowledge of music, but your awareness of what type of mark you choose to leave in this world. 

 

True I guess.

What exactly does "important" mean? Some local teachers or composers or something? If all these guys do is dump on your music it sounds like you need to hang out with different people.

You sound like a pretty young guy so here's some advice from a guy whose (a few) years older than you: if you spend time around people who ultimately just drag you down, you need to cut those people out of your life. You shouldn't waste any time trying to impress people who would rather tear you down than build you up. It may be hard, because you may think these people are your friends, but I promise there are better people out there. I wish I had learned that a lot sooner than I did.

FWIW here's my reaction to Ivan's music:

And here's my reaction to that "Plastic Trio":

Sounds like you've had it pretty rough lately. Take some time for yourself, you'll be back stronger than ever before you know it.

 

They are important because they are the teachers of the Superior Conservatory, they would be the guys to give me my title.

Sometimes you need a title to get a job, that's why it frustrates me so much I won't be able to start my superior studies this year. 

 

Also your joke caught me out of guard lol.

 

And yes, I need a long rest, I hope I will be able to bring something decent after it.

Hi Ivan.  I'm sorry to hear about your troubles but I just listened to your symphony and I think you are very talented.  Not many people can still create classical-styled music with as much character and quality as you have done here.  I love the rhythmic variations and you shouldn't stop just because some high-brow in an academic institution is too closed minded to see (and apparently not even hear!) it's value.  Don't let this stop you and I hope you keep composing.

Thank you and everyone in general for encouraging me to keep composing.
