"I can't speak for the flute part, since I'm not a flautist, but one thought that occurred to me was to leave adequate breathing points. Your flute passages are a bit virtuosic, and in high register, so you probably want strategic breathing spots so…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Tim swanger's discussion Three Texas Sketches
"I liked it, especially the Mutton Bus. Very Texan, and lots of fun.
Now, I'm no brass player, but I see that you wrote some pretty agile passages for the horn -- are you sure the horn player can pull off all those fast notes and trills? The 32nd…"

"Thank you, truly. I admit that I gave almost no consideration to the playability of the accompaniment when I was writing it, mainly because it was supposed to be just for my son and I couldn't imagine it ever being seen by anyone else. It was only…"

H. S. Teoh replied to Tim swanger's discussion A Father's Love for solo violin and piano
"Very sweet theme, quite fitting the title. I liked it a lot.
That said, please have mercy on the pianist!! You have quite a lot of chords that require an incredibly large right hand, or a lot of piano gymnastics with left hand alternately playing…"

Michael Lofting replied to Tim swanger's discussion A Father's Love for solo violin and piano
"There's a lot to like about this piece.

I have a couple of suggestions.

I am not much of a pianist and I am sure I couldn't play six notes in the treble at the end of bar 59. Same thing in bar 55 on. Need an enormous right hand in bar 29. It's a…"

Ray Kohn replied to Tim swanger's discussion A Father's Love for solo violin and piano
"Hi Tim
As a violinist, I think the piece might gain more interest for the players if the fiddle were ti accompany the piano as the pianist played the theme in the 2nd half of the work. It is an attractive theme whose fiddle accompaniment might…"

"Hi Tim, I read Bob's comment, and realized that I felt similarly about my perception of possibly fragmented melodic ideas, but said nothing.  Your explanation about where your head was at after your divorce, really casts some nice light on that as a…"

Tim swanger replied to Tim swanger's discussion New Piece
"Thanks for the comments! Bob, I agree with your comments 100%! I usually use longer melodies and develop them extensively (sometimes too much). This was something completely different than anything I've tried before. I wrote it without a roadmap of…"

Austin Joseph Lee replied to Tim swanger's discussion New Piece
"Hey! I think I'd kinda just echo the critiques these others gave. I do want to say though that I really enjoyed the transition at about 2:30. Also that I like the softness the instruments have throughout the piece, but wish that at that moment they…"

Dave Ostrowski replied to Tim swanger's discussion New Piece
"Great piece, Tim, 

One listen here, as well.  I love the way it moves about harmonically, rhythmically, with some really nice orchestration..  Is that a pipe organ I hear in there? or a harmonium?  If it is, I like it.  But I think it isn't.  I…"
