"I especially like the Mindless Vapor song. You are very talented. Keep studying, practice, and listen to the genres of music you would like to make a lot (that is what I do...it helps so much!) Well done. "

"Hi Carlo, After so much good and sound advice and criticism that you have been offered so far in this thread from all composers I could hardly add anything. I listen to 6-7 of your pieces and I found something good in all of them. Obviously I have…"

"Carlo, I think Bob P makes a very salient point which you might want to consider. Lasse too has suggested another valid way forward. As I was writing my first post to you, I could hear Bob Ms' response almost word for word in my head and I am…"

"Hi Carlo! I am by no means a professional but I have something that might help you. You see, your music isn't all that different from what I composed and produced ten years ago or so. Mike wrote about your harmonic sense being a strong point, I…"

"Carlo, " I have a feeling that a note is just a note, and only by disovering the next note are you able to discern what the previous note was saying." Here in may be what you are searching for. Because this is only part of the story. With…"

"Hello Mike, thank you so much for taking the time to listen and provide me with your feedback. I don't think that any of what you said sounds negative! In fact, I smiled as I read it because I know it all to be true. It's nice to have a…"

"Hi Carlo, I err on the side of Steve and Rowy here as I think you might benefit from some training in linearity particularly. I think A Healthy Dose is terrific for the first minute, but after that the riff based approach tires my ears. Your harmony…"

"I'm unsure as to wether anybody actually listened to any of my music, since I got no actual response, in that regard. Thank you all for the other advice. I'm sure that my work seems like messy child's play to most here. I'd still…"

"Hear, hear! You said it all, but in some cases it will fall on deaf ears. I still don't understand why some talented young composers prefer to hang around fora, instead of doing the obvious. Perhaps they are afraid of the entrance examination,…"
