Hi Greta,

Thank you for submitting to Opus 32. Although your piece was not selected this year, I encourage you to continue writing and submit another piece in the near future.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Hi Greta,

I'm Rebecca and I'll be your mentor for Opus 32.

You've got a lot of good material to work with already. I especially like the melodic line you've given to the viola.

As we get started, could you tell me about your concept for the piece? What kind of a mood do you want to portray? Can you give me five descriptive words for what you want your music to sound like?

Do you think this piece already has an ending, or were you planning on writing more. Your last measures sounded like a convincing ending to me, but we can still revise and shape the material that you've already written.

I love your viola melody, but have you considered passing the melody off the the cello at some point? That might sound nice. Feel free to explore new musical possibilities that are inspired by what you already have written.

I'm looking forward to hearing back from you. Let me know if you have any questions!
