"Mike - All of it will definitely be useful to me. As far as orchestration goes, I'm pretty much a novice, so I want to soak up as many suggestions as possible to make the piece work well. I'm also not a string player, so your insight into…"

"Lawrence - You're right, I probably should have broken this up into a few different posts altogether. That's good criticism on the second movement -- I've now heard from a few people that my textures tend to be too thin and lack…"

"Hi Noah, Always nice to see a new poster. I've only listened to the first piece and enjoyed it very much, especially your harmonic sense. I tend not to comment on notes as such, because they are yours and so I'll just point out some…"

"03  Cute theme,  the parts blend well.  I thought the chord at 30 sec. was a bit abrupt or too loud.  I prefer the string section samples to the solo string parts if you are doing orchestra music and you have that…"

"I enjoyed this. Something about the bright, upbeat, jazzy style reminded me a little of Vince Guaraldi's music for the Peanuts animated movies. It's very atmospheric, which is perfect for an event like a wedding. Well done."

Thumbelina (Suite for Orchestra)

Hello, all. I made this account a few years back, but had a few babies in the meantime and haven't posted anything until now. I'm really anxious to get some good feedback on my latest composition, which is a 25-minute suite of Romantic-styled orchestral music based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, Thumbelina.I realize it may be a lot to ask the members here to listen to and offer criticism on a 25-minute piece (not to mention reviewing a 108-page score, if you're into that), so I'd be…See More

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
I am a hobbyist composer and stay-at-home dad to three girls, living in western Pennsylvania.

I've had only one public performance of my work thus far, last year in Annapolis, MD, but I'm hoping to arrange more with some community orchestras here in the Pittsburgh area.

I have no music degree; everything I've learned about composition has come from high school band and music theory classes plus additional reading and online courses I've done over the years.

My most successful project so far has been "Thumbelina," a ten-movement suite based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, written in a Romantic style.

Feedback is always welcome and much appreciated!
