This is the first time I have transferred a score that I have written on my keyboard into my computer. I have studied piano for seven years, and I have been composing for two, but I have only an intermediate knowledge of music theory. Please critique my first attempt at a composition so that I might learn how to edit my current work and compose better scores in the future.
Regarding the piece itself, it is a rhapsody of sorts. I play around with timing, tempo, and dissonance. However, it is also extremely melodic. It is also very long, spanning 14 pages and roughly eight minutes, but it maintains its musical interest despite its length. The one problem people keep telling me it has is an overuse of parallel movement and not enough contrary movement. Could you please give your input?<center><table border=1><tr><td>
