Any context to this piece? For example, it would be nice to know if this is one of your first compositions. Your answer would influence my critique. Also, were you inspired by Chopin's Raindrop Etude by any chance?

 

This is not one of my first compositions also not one of my best (see W1W2W3) also no raindrop etude inspiration

Ok, so I will be a bit harder on you with this critique then.

This piece sounds more like a short study on scales and octaves to me. If this was meant to be a composition, then a few things:

  1. Watch the parallel octaves. I'm not an extreme music theorist, but in this case your piece mostly goes without them, then you throw them in toward the very end without much of a purpose.
  2. There's no theme. Not all pieces need a theme, esp. if this is a study. But throwing one in there helps keep a piece interesting.
  3. The piece is really just scales.
  4. No articulations, dynamics, velocity changing

I'm big on good audio output, and a good way to help not desensitize the ear is by paying a little more closer attention to point 4. Because even if a piece is just a study, you can make it sound more interesting by having a better audio output.
