How do I expand this theme?


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of this piece to be a polka in ternary form.

 

Any ideas?

Perhaps experiment with more different harmonics, going to the subdominant or other functions. I see that the melody lingers mostly on the fifth, which is fine but you could vary that one as well, like go up in the last bars, and start on a lower pitch, like the third or even the root note. I like that the B section is in a major key, but it needs variation as well. Maybe one way to go is to modulate to the f major in the B-section as a color change, since F major is related to D minor (D minor would be considered the tonic parallel of F major)

This time you're plagiarizing Rachmaninoff's Italian Polka.

This isn't a passing, inoffensive quote, but a long, copy-pasted passage from another work and there's no acknowledgement whatsoever. I've lost count of how many times you've done this.

Why are you still convinced you can get away with it? Please don't insult my intelligence again by saying it was an "accident".

One of these days you'll have to stop blatantly stealing others' music. If you ARE going to steal, make it a piece by someone obscure.

Is it any wonder you're asking for ideas? You have none of your own and you aren't Rachmaninoff.

Here's the piece you stole from. You just shifted it down a semitone.

But... I relent. Here are a couple of totally original ideas for you. Maybe they can be added on:
