    Thank you Mike! You are spot on and I will take your advice to heart. I wrote Theresa's song when I was 17 - 40 years ago. She was my high school girlfriend and I wrote it for her on her piano. The rendition I sent you was indeed one take and I made a lot of mistakes. Sadly she was killed in a boating accident less than 1/4 mile from where I live now. Thank you for listening and I can't wait for unleashed 6. I have another piece you can destroy me on. I have two versions though. One is orchestrated and one is stripped down to piano, which you always say is important. I only upload one, which would you prefer?

    Mike, thanks for the tips on my piece at 6:46:30 . Food for thought!

    Thank you so much for your op the spot remarks on the 'Weihnachtswolf'. Lovely to hear how you make my theme come alive with all these chords. I will follow your kind instructions and develop my harmonic vocabulary. Hopefully we will hear the difference in my next piece. Kind regards, Anneloes, Netherlands.

    Thanks so much again for the critique of "Deep Under The Bustling City" at 11:02:22. You and the chat were spot-on with your criticisms. Much appreciated, and massive kudos for taking the time to listen to so many submissions. What an undertaking! Excited to start the twelve masterclasses I purchased from you the other day...

    "orchestral opening" wasn't as bad as you made out. The pattern was that it was in 5 quavers, rather than 4s. I feel like this was the only one where you didn't give enough time to lock in.
    Loved the vid - first time I've seen your channel.

    Out of all of those tracks, he didn't reviewed mine. I'm sure I uploaded it. The track is 'A Magical Ending' T_T

      Okay, just watched (8:33:55). Thanks so much for the feedback, I'm pleasantly surprised from yours and chat's reactions! You're probably right, the sax thing did come out of nowhere (also I apologise for the crappy sax sample lol). I can't change it since it was for a paid project, but perhaps I'll revisit it in my spare time and play around more with the theme, taking out the sax bit in the process.
      Much appreciated Mike, thanks again

    08:45:15 That's me.... thank you so much, Mike, for the motivating review! You're right - the mix is not good and it's meant for live players, not for samples. The melody is a traditional song for children in Germany (so I didn't invent that) and I had fun exercising orchestration on it.

    Mike, just following along with what you do on the keyboard is the only time I’ve ever had to use the 0.25x speed setting on USclip. Thanks for your dedication to improving the skills of others.
