First I would like to thank b3n and Beethoven for the inspiration for creating this piece. Anyway I named it Etude No. 1 because I couldn't really think of better name and it wasn't simple enough to be a Canzonetta and not nearly long enough to be a Sonata.

Tell me what you think.

Didn't sound hard enough to be much of an etude, either, but then again I guess it could be a beginner etude.

-I didn't like how it stops and goes; I think you should've just come up with smooth transitions there.
-The note choice was interesting. I liked that main idea you had going there. I think you were kinda on to something there with that idea but I don't feel like you developed it all that much (it generally went back into a kind of repeat before you developed it). I think as amateur composers (myself included) we all have great ideas for main concepts in a piece but the hardest part is keeping that concept present and developing it throughout the entire piece. Chopin was awesome at this, in my opinion, especially in the etudes (how he introduces a main idea like we all do but then goes on to show it through many different chord changes and such).

Anyway, I hope to hear more from you.

I usually just name it the tempo if it doesn't fit under anything. That's just me, though.

yeah I don't really think it's an etude either.. there's not really any technical development to be gained by the performer from it

it's not a bad work, but not exactly interesting either :/

unless you are as bad at playing the piano as I am and then the song is quite hard, and there is much to be gain Wink
