I like your Etude very much. Yes, the left hand part sounds very demanding, especially for smaller hands such as my own. If you have a page at SoundCloud or other location on the Internet, with recordings of others of your compositions, please list

Hello. I played the piano between the ages of 4 - 15 years and gave up (due to being a rebellious teenager!). I have always wanted to return but the opportunity has never presented itself, until now! I was a Grade 6 theory student when I stopped.

Thank you Charles for the suggestions. PA systems will deliver much louder volume, but how is the sound quality for piano? How do they compare to the build-in speaker?

I just hit on this from 2000 which confirms that the volumes are standardized http://www.cinematechnologymagazine.com/pdf/movie%20loudness_Cinema%20June%2000.pdf Since the 1970's, movie theater audio was normalized to 85dBc which is safe to sit in
