I am posting this for my son Adam. He is 17 years old started playing the piano for the first time 18 months ago and is self taught. He has had no lessons at all. He composes songs daily now, but this is his first actual composition and performance in front of a crowd. It was at his High School's talent show. I recorded it on a GoPro3 from a long way away, so the sound and picture isn't optimal, but not too bad. Thanks for viewing.

Wow! totally amazing BUT!! He would do even better with lessons.
If you'd like a specific point he would learn to make much more from the melody by understanding how to incorporate the bass into the composition.
From your posting: the bass not only does nothing harmonically but it "to me" is actually killing the melody.

Thank you for the critique. I wonder if his background as a drummer has anything to do with the bass being so prominent?
