"I think critical reviews are crucial to our development as composers. Critiques can help us to understand what works and what doesn't. Opening ourselves up to criticism can lead to a feeling of vulnerability, humiliation, and embarrassment. One way…"

"Of course you should post your music! But I think that you should not ask the forum whether they like it or not,

Instead, make a list of questions of things where you…"

"I mostly agree, but would make this observation:  Using my PC I can write, realize and distribute my music world-wide directly to the ears of any listeners -  in a matter of hours.  Those composers writing for acoustic instruments (and of course…"

"I believe that if you are serious about writing music you must seek out the opinions of other composers.  We are lucky to have the Internet and sites like this to facilitate this process.

"I know the feeling. I'm an aspiring composer not seeking to limit myself to any one genre and I mostly come from a popular music (mainly rock) background. When I listen to some of the orchestral music that gets uploaded by other members here, I'm…"

"Spyrus/Thomas: Thank you for advice. I believe I do realize what I'm doing when I'm arranging, even without actually listening to the notes all the time, so it's not a very big problem. I will try to post one of my pieces later this week, presenting…"

"If you think it sounds bad, just put a note in your post, something to the effect:   I realize the midi sounds are crap.  If you could focus on the composition itself in your critique that would be great.Axel Olesund said:

I too enjoy your music. If you can't perform on a keyboard due to the limitations that has been enforced upon you, don't worry about it. Make your weakness your strength and incorporate it in your style! There are ways to get around…"
