Here is another piece I have been working on. I am very happy with the piece as a whole, but not sure if it needs expanding or made longer ?

What are your thoughts on the piece ?

Thank you

  • As a percussionist, I can tell you that the marimba part works just fine with 4 four mallets, although, having "nat." for every measure near the end of the piece is a bit.....redundant. 

    Thanks for sharing!

  • If you are still here... I will give you my random thoughts: make the piece longer, 2 minutes is not enough, you have the marimba ending on a dominant 7th making the piece sound incomplete, avoid doublings of the instruments such as marimba and cello, make each voice independent, only write your name in the score, don't put written or composed by since it makes a person seem egotistical, you need expression markings, your 7/8 measures are bracketed incorrectly, it needs to be 2 2 3 in the marimba treble clef, and the copyright needs to be at the bottom and in proper form. Instead of whole notes at the end I would make the strings more articulated and driving.
  • Thanks for your advice. I will take these comments on board.
