Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody,

I'm new here, and I came here to find other solo piano composers and make friends with them (actually make friends with anybody, not just exclusively with solo piano composers ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

I am not sure if I'm posting this into the right forum,
because for some reason I have a feeling about that this forum is more focused around classical compositions,
and my music is not primarily classical,
but anyways, as a "musical self-introduction" I thought it might be a good idea to at least post one of my music here for you to listen,
so this way you might get to know me a little better than just from reading my texts here,
so here is my first music-post:

I'm looking forward to learn more and more about composing for piano,
so I'm very happy if I can learn from some of your tips and tricks I find in this forum!
(If you have any opinions/advice about this particular piece/track, I would be very happy to read it so i can learn from your feedback.)

I hope everybody has a great day!

(PS. This is my very first post here, so please let me know if I made a mistake (I'm thinking about the forum rules (I haven't find a page like that yet)), so I won't make it next time.)

By the way I'm holding the grace notes as if they were really long notes, because I liked that sounded a little bit better, but actually it's just an optional thing, so I didn't write it that way in the sheet music, but I also don't really know what would be the correct way to write it.

How do we correctly notate a 2nd voice melody if it starts out as a grace note compared to the "normal"-note 1st voice?

(I'm not even sure how to ask this question correctly in English language, but if you look at the sheet music grace notes, and the really "long grace notes" (?) that I hold down in the piano keyboard, I think you can see what I mean. What's correct notation solution for that?)

Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the forum! I hope you'll enjoy sharing your music and hearing others'. Although the forum might be mainly focused on classical composition, we're still open to other ideas!ย 


I do like this piece, although perhaps it works better as ambient background music than for 'active' listening. My main comment/criticism is that is feels almost a littleย tooย slow-burning. This is a feature of the style that you write in, but I think a greater climax could be reached. On a similar vein, perhaps you could explore the upper- and lowermost notes on the piano. More bass especially would be nice, after a while high notes can sound quite tinny and harsh on the ear. Just my thoughts.

I think the best way would be to add in a third voice where the grace note is tied to a long note. You could then add a slur from the grace note to voice 1 or 2. Let me know if you need a picture example of what I mean - that explanation might not be very clear!


Thank you for sharing your music
