Hi, I hope you don't mind if I publish this here: I was suggested by another user in the pianist corner to post this piece in the ABF as well, as it's a rather easy listening melody, not overly complicated to play, there's a link to the score for the whole piece in the video description and maybe someone around here would like to try and play it.
Here it is, a piece I composed (or rather "completed") after hearing my cousin improvising a short melody on her piano:

It's a beautiful piece and may end up as one of my "40 pieces in 2021".

Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

That is very beautiful. A bit beyond my current level, but I'm still going to try it out. Thanks for sharing.

Very pretty, I am impressed!


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Very beautiful piece. In measure 17, are these triplets? If so why there is a triplet followed by a 2 sixteenth note in the second beat. The tempo is too fast for my ear to tell if I am hearing triplets or just sixteenth notes. I know I need to train my ear more ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks again everybody, Iโ€™m really honored that so many people here are enjoying my piece.

@nice2care, those are not triplets, just simple sixteenths. The groupings are definitely not well written as they donโ€™t reflect the accents. I shall rewrite the piece with a better notation and a better software as soon as I have some time wink

No, those are not triplets; you will see that if you count the number of notes in the measure. KP has made a mistake in notation. The standard rule of notation in an instance such as this is that the "beaming" of the sixteenth-notes has to correspond to the beats represented by the time signature. Therefore, each beat has to be "beamed" as four sixteenths. If KP wants the execution to show groups of three without changing the timing, then phrase marks have to be used over each three-note group, but the "beaming" must remain to show four sixteenth-notes per beat.

Measure 18 is a further instance of mistaken "vocabulary" three sixteenth-notes, three sixteenth-notes, two sixteenth-notes and then two groups of four sixteenth-notes each. Only the last two groups of four sixteenth-notes are correctly notated. The entire measure should be written as four groups of four sixteenth-notes per group.

Similarly, the left hand should not show two groups of eight sixteenth-notes as seen in some measures but, rather, four groups of four sixteenth-notes each.

KP should go through the score and make the necessary corrections.

Regards,

In 4/4 (or Common) time, this is how sixteenth-notes must be beamed: (The example here is for the left hand reference I made in my above post.)

Very beautiful, but I must also place your composition on a wish list.

Thank you.
