I have had a YouTube channel for over a year (it's been that long already?), and I've been uploading my music to it. I make orchestral, cinematic music. Almost always, it features piano and strings. Sometimes I feel like adding brass instruments too. I decided to begin uploading some of my music to Newgrounds too. I've gotten quite good at composing, so why not listen to some of my music?

Also, I am not even 16 years old yet, so that makes me one of the teen music composers.

Surprise surprise, teen composers aren't really rare on NG. Alot of us here, myself included, started on this site as teens.

And I would recommend a dose of humility over your compositions. It would do you good. Every composer needs it, myself included, or we would not learn anything. I took a look at your compositions... I don't see what's good about them. They're bland.

More proper reviews to come soon so I can say what exactly is good or bad.

Columbers responds:

What I meant was I've been composing for about a year, and compared to my first pieces of music, I've improved a lot. I've not uploaded everything yet, so don't give up on me yet. I understand where you're coming from when you say my music can be bland; I try to keep it simple but that can get overdone. Thanks for the criticism though, sometimes a bit of criticism is worth more than praise.

I won't give up on you yet -- @Step can recount his personal journey from making extremely cacophonous stuff, to making some of the best moderator music I've heard to date. And he's in his teens if I remember correctly -- so you have a fellow journeyer in music who also went through leaps and bounds.

Sorry if I come across as harsh; I don't mean to.
