"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 glad…"

"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…"

"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 more…"

"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 be interested in…"

"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, I…"

Carlo Anthony replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"Very relaxing to listen to :) I think it gets better and better as it goes further into it. I particularly enjoy the interaction between the harp and flute during the final 1/3rd of the piece. I think it could use a nice little outro to tie…"

">Just because someone has a music degree doesn't mean they can write music. It may interest you to know that theory came from composition, not ,necessarily, the other way around.
