Hey there, thanks for sharing your music! I would recommend that you do some analysis of other works for keyboard and orchestra from the style you are replicating here. I think your instincts melodically are good, but I think that you would benefit from shaping them around more standard harmonic progressions. For instance, if your main theme clearly moves from the tonic to the subdominant, to the dominant, it will sound more compelling than simply staying on tonic the whole time. If the terms tonic, subdominant, etc. are new to you, then just look at some piano concertos by Mozart or Beethoven and notice what chords they use and how they relate to the starting harmony of the piece. You will find that there is a pattern that is used over and over again, and it would be a good starting off point for you.

Thanks! Not new terms but it sounds like I have some studying to do.

This piece is very classical, it strongly reminds me of Mozart, however I don't understand if it's for an orchestra or just for a cello + few other instruments of contour, the cello surprises me when it came up, even if it's the at the beginning of the piece. I advise you to present the main instrument at first and then instorude other secondary instrument, or at least to write a longer introduction so it's clear the main character will come later. I also think you can express at the maximum of your potential if you experiment more if you add the dynamics (pp, p, mf, f, ff).
