    Making a melody sound more interesting ?

    Hi, I haven't been posting any new material for a long time. I'm working hard to learn the basics of composition and orchestration in my spare time.

    Here is a little piece I wrote some time ago. Yesterday I decided to orchestrate it. Though the melody is quite simple, I worked the orchestration out to make the melody a little more interesting. I honnestly don't know if I succeded quite well. So as usual, if you can lend me your ears and give me your advices, here it is :

    Jean-Guy:

    An excellent piece with a moving melody. Also, your command of GPO is commendable.

    Hi,

    Nicely done!

    I've listened to it a few times now and I'm still listening. If your music makes someone want to listen to it several times, then you must have succeeded.

    Jean-Guy, this is positively lovely; very beautifully done.

    The rendering on it sounded excellent, to me; and the string writing is handled quite well... just the right touch.

    My best,

    Excellent results for a days work. It has a charming melody and the orchestration and rendering are very well done.
