The first draft of a March. I couldn't sleep last night so I composed this in bed on my phone.

I borrowed Jorge's theme from his latest piece, the trio for two flutes and bassoon. Definitely check it out if you've not heard it yet.

It's great but there's some mixing up of the hands.  What I mean is that for example the top D in measure 5 sounds like it is part of the melody but you give it to the left hand.  Then in the penultimate measure you give the D to the right hand but it sounds like it belongs to the left hand part since there's a note missing at the end of that measure.  As far as writing pieces based on other fellow composers' melodies - I think it's great and I'm sure Jorge will be stoked about it too but I do hope that you asked permission to play around with it.  Thanks for sharing!

Nice! I love it, and not only because the March is named after me hahaha. I also love the movement to minor since it sounds abrupt and natural at the same time. These days you seem to be taking more risks when composing and I think they all sound great! Glad the theme inspired you! 🙂

Thank you for reviewing, you never seem to miss any mistake! Lol. Your reviews are really helping me to improve! I corrected the mistakes you pointed out and polished it.

It was meant as a surprise so on this occasion I didn't ask for permission but you are right, some may be flattered, others may be offended so ill take care in future.

Thank you. Papercomposer

Nice, happy and optimistic march. I love it. its remind me that 15 years ago my composing teacher gave me home work to write march in C minor even before I really started to play piano. Nice to remember things that I actually forget about. It's make me want to write some march.

Thank you YakoB. I have struggled composing a march, my last two attempts didn't quite have the forward drive expected of the form. Im looking forward to composing more in this style. I hope you do decide to write a march, I'll keep an eye out.
