Swofford, can't give you much feedback as I am only a beginner (6 months). But I do have an appreciation for music and your playing flowed very nicely, I enjoyed listening to you and it is easy to see you do really do love music as you expressed on your channel.

If I might be so bold though, if you want to progress as a pianist you will have to tackle more difficult pieces. I thought I saw in your youtube clips a pattern of pieces with mostly broken chord bass lines, which taken as a whole started to sound the same. I could be wrong as I said I am not the best one to give advice. However I did spend forty years playing guitar and after 10 years never progressed at all. I now deeply regret that waste, and would always council others never to settle but to strive hard at this wonderful instrument.

The recital forums here are a great resource to listen to, as you can hear other members who have been playing for similar periods. While everyone is individual in their ability it does at least give a benchmark.

My Heart Will Go On is not easy. It's marked as hard in a tutorial I have. That's the one I listened to and it was played very well by you (Swofford.)

I like your version of River Flows in You. Do you play by ear or you use sheet music? Either way...good stuff!
