Hey! I just wanted some criticism for a score I recently created. I wanted it to have a kind of closing boss battle kind of vibe. It's very minimalistic, with only a piano, a trumpet, and a drum set. It begins with a piano opening, starting the piece off with a dark, 'you've reached the end' feeling, and then it kicks off into full gear with the trumpet kicking in eighteen bars into the piece.
I'm an amateur composer with no professional education (I'm still in High School), and I'm completely self taught. I've learned a few things simply by listening to orchestral pieces, looking at their sheet music and trying to figure out how it was all put together.
Please be as descriptive and critical as possible. I'm always looking for ways to improve. If you want to help even further than just critiquing this piece, I will gladly take suggestions for schools or tutorials online on music theory, or even how to start making money from it. I will be very grateful for any sort of help.
