Hi Talia,

You're so welcome! I really enjoyed working with you on your piece too!

Sorry you weren't chosen for live performance at Opus but I REALLY hope you'll write another piece next year!

All my best,
Evan

Sorry I didn't respond more quickly. Thank you for the feedback! I took the time to add a part and create a more complete ending.

Hi Talia,
Just a reminder the final deadline for submitting this piece is on Thursday. See my notes below for making your piece slightly longer. It's such a strong start. If you can make additions by early in the week, I'll try to check in again and make comments before you submit. Let me know when you make changes.
Best,
Evan

Hi Talia,

I just tried viewing your file and I can see it now! yay! Sorry I didn't realize it was working until now! I'm Evan Premo, a professional bass player and composer and I'm going to be mentoring your piece.

I think it's a really great start. The repetition in the right hand of the piano really holds the piece together nicely. It's really beautiful cello melody.

I think measure 21 would be a good place to add a "B" section before returning to the original material. You could consider opening up a new tonal area. Maybe it could be in C major instead of A minor and then it can return to the A minor section.

I want to hear it with real instruments! Keep going Keep going - good work.

Make sure to leave a comment here when you make changes so that I know to check out your changes.

Best,
Evan

Dear Talia,
Sorry to report this, but I just tried two more times and I keep getting the same error notice as before. Please try again and make sure you follow all the directions, including the one SAVE! Thanks.

Dear Talia,

So glad to see your post and thanks for the clear description of your intent for this work. Now, there's just one problem and it's that the score isn't Shared, so mentors won't be able to view it. Here's how to fix it.

1. Open your Noteflight Score.
2. Click on the Connect icon.
3. Change Sharing to "All site members" may view this score.
4. SAVE.
5. Post a comment that you've fixed the Sharing and you'll hear from a mentor soon.

Best wishes,
Erik
