Hi Wayne,
Good work on your piece this term! Sorry you weren't chosen for live performance at Opus but I REALLY hope you'll write another piece next year and try again.
Take care and be well!
Evan

Hi Wayne,
As you continue to work on your cello melody. It might be nice to have it be much higher. Above the notes of the piano. Then it won't conflict so much with the piano.
Deadline tomorrow! Look forward to seeing the results.
Best,
Evan

Hi Wayne,
Just checking in with you here. It looks like you've made some additions to your piece. It's a very strong piano introduction followed by what seems to be a piano accompaniment. Maybe m. 12 or 18 would be a good place to bring in a new instrument. Like maybe violin or clarinet or flute? Anything really.
Let me know when you make some more changes and I'll give some more feedback.
Best,
Evan

Hi Wayne,
I'm Evan Premo, a professional composer and bass player. I live in Marshfield, VT. I'll be your mentor for this term. I'm really looking forward to working with you and I really like the start of your piece. It's a really cool introduction! I appreciate the specificity of your piano writing: the rolled chords, tempo changes, pedal markings, etc.

One tiny notational thing: in the half note tied to the eighth note in measure 6, the eighth note should come first.

I really look forward to hearing more of this piece! It looks like there is an exciting waltz to come! Think melodically and make sure to keep playing things on the piano.

My best,
Evan
