What do you think about this composition?
I wrote this earlier this year to be a show piece in a local high school competition. Lots of people liked it but I am sure that it can be much better due to my inexperience in playing and composing. Please be honest in your feedback, if you think it is terrible then say it is terrible and give a reason why. Thanks! Also I am wondering what your thoughts are on my bow hold? I am in the process of fixing it but don't have a teacher right now.

Very Wieniawski-esque, but it feels like you can't stay in one place long enough to bring out the music (it was in "disequilibrium"?).
I feel like your playing could open up a bit more; your entire body looked very scrunched in and tense.
I went to noteflight, but your link produced a blank page. Have you taken it down?
Thanks for all the feedback so far! I will definitely use your advice!
Your link works, but some of it is hidden. You need to triple click it to select all of it.
Mr. Fowler, I liked your piece and playing and thought it sounds a lot like Bach and then unexpectedly I hear some Paganini which makes it fresh and unique. Keep writing and performing.
Thanks guys! I see my mistake now. I will go and edit the link in the first thread.
Awesome! I will definitely have to investigate your ideas! Thanks so much!
Samuel, this was a very fine composition.
