Hello everyone
I'm new to this forum and I want to share my music with people around the world. I just started to write some fairly easy to play compositions for piano and put it on youtube. Here is one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjJAAKXVeOc
If you want to play it yourself at home you can get the sheet music on my website www.timtreford.com.
I hope you enjoy my music.
Tim

Hi, Tim -- and welcome to Piano World! Well, it's lyrical, folklike, in an American way. You did briefly provide a couple of interesting changes -- I'd like to hear more of that in your writing. Also would like to hear a few others, just to get a better sense of your compositional "range".

Thanks for sharing this!

That is excellent writing: it's simple, soulful, and sweet.

Of particular note, I think it would be a really great recital piece for young students. The musical concepts and relationships are easy to see, which then makes musicality in performance a more attainable goal. I can easily see the pedagogical advantages of using this piece to illustrate a balanced singing quality in the melodic line to an advanced young child (c.5-7 years old). It is often difficult to find works that are compositionally thoughtful and also musically complete sounding for this age group.

That might not have been your target audience, nevertheless, I think it would work well...

Thank you so much for your comments!
I'm really happy to hear, that you like it and I hope, my music will find its way to a lot of different people. Well, it's my goal to keep it simple and "playable" for students of all ages. That's probably one reason why I don't go to far with the harmonic changes.
There are more compositions on my website and in my youtube-channel. Nevertheless, I'm in an intense process of writing at the moment and will share more music also in this forum.
Once again, thank you very much for your feedback. Really appreciate it!
