Alexey Arkhipenko replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"I liked the piece, tranquil and changing tempo.
For me the emergence of single notes starting from 2:15 sound a bit strange and "broken". I think I would prepare them by changing music or tempo before they emerge. On the other hand, this sounds…"

Gavin Brown replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Jenny, I found this pleasant. Your chords are nice, your fidelity is good, the melody is emotional. If I could offer one thing in the way of a critique, I would say that what you are not doing anything I have not heard before. If you want to fit…"

"I've listened to it about a half dozen times now (that means it's good). The underlying harmonic structure is intoxicating. However, there is a melodic phrase that I think is underused (it's only used twice), the phrase that begins after the slow…"

"OMG! I am so encouraged by all of these wonderfully positive comments! Almost at a loss for words to respond! Which, if you know me, is an astounding predicament! I really appreciate getting this kind of feedback from fellow musicians particularly!…"

Greg Monks replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"My impression on the first listen was that this piece had been improvised- I was surprised to read that you'd notated it from the outset.
The advantage to music with an improvised feel (whether it is or not) is that it tends to flow.
There's a…"

"Jenny...
I am by no means a professional, but I think your piece was lovely.  Very simple and uncluttered.  You didn't try to make it more than it was.  Very easy to listen to.  Just a nice piece of music."

Tim Beringer replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Jenny,

I just listened to a few of your tracks on sound cloud.  I thought they were all lovely.  One thing that there will alway be a demand for is simple piano music.  Do you remember composition class at USF?  I was in it with you.  I think…"

"Thank you Roger and filgood! Your comments really encouraged me! I have not yet put it into finale. I have it hand notated with pencil and paper. I composed it literally note by note as it came to me, so this was not an improvised piece. I do have…"

fillgood replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Hello,
Very nice, did you write note for note before playing or are you improvising over a chart?
I could see very well this piece as an intro to an orchestral development around the theme.
And nice playing as far as I can hear."

roger stancill replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Hi Jenny, I really enjoy short pieces like this. Playable, and with a purpose
to each note. I love the chords and cadence, with a Rachmaninoff flavor.
These pieces seem to sound even better 'late night' if you know what I mean,
like a nocturne. A…"

Jenny Leigh Hodgins replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Thank you so much for this thoughtful reply. As I look at the piece with that in mind, I am pleased with the texture of it and the tone. I am not completely satisfied yet with the structure. I composed it pretty quickly, so I think now it is time to…"

Johan Halmén replied to Jenny Leigh Hodgins's discussion Your Feedback on Piano Composition
"Very beautiful. I bet you are pleased with it yourself. Or could you point out anything that you are not satisfied with in the composition itself? I listened to it twice and on both times I went like "wait, what was that... oh, I get it" on a few…"

"Thank you SO much for taking time to listen and provide feedback.  Yes, it is simple and intentionally so, due to not having time to practice piano anymore (hectic job) and as a general rule, my focus is more and more on simplicity.  I composed it…"
