A short easy piece in A minor. Allegretto, even though I played it slower than that.

I will be coming out with more bagatelles such as this for novice pianists to learn from.
Sheet music to these will be 99c each.
Check my news post for information on how to purchase my scores.

Thank you for listening, yet again.

I love your stuff dude.

All I can say :'D


This was a sweet short piece, calm and interesting. I did not give it five (I gave it a four), because it was WAAY too short! I can see that developing into something much longer. However, very beautiful. :-)

Beautifully simple.

Very nice piece for beginners..ha, I could learn to use this. I'm scolding myself for using my ear instead of reading sheet music for stuff. I used to be able to play sheet music on the piano easily when I was first learning, now I can play for crap, lol. I mostly use my keyboard for compositions now, not playing. It bored me.
I wish I was given something like THIS to learn instead of stuff like the Purple People Eater. what

You know this has played about 8 times? It doesn't get tiring too easily. Not unless you're learning this and having difficulty :P

The ending is nice and simple. (Right now I'm thinking, I should improve my music vocablulary. Bagatelle..?)
I love the feel that is established throughout this piece. It can represent a number of emotions, depending on your mood, what you're thinking or doing, or what's around you. That's what I love about this piece. I can't say the same for a lot of other stuff I've heard.

Hey there
A bagatelle literally translated means 'a trifle'. The most popular ones were composed by Beethoven, but I don't think it was him who coined the terminology. His most popular one is Für Elise, which everyone knows.
hahha Purple People Eater.
Thanks for the review


This is a very nice piece for beginners to learn from. Hopefully I can learn to play as well as you do. I play some piano, but I suck at it for the most part. I can't point out any flaws at the moment, but I can say that it is beautiful in its simplicity. It'd make a nice loop for a movie or game. It's two AM here, so I must go to bed. I've stayed up just to listen to this piece and leave my thoughts.

I was worried whether people would understand what I was trying to do with this opus. If you ever need sheet music, don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for gracing me with your lovely reviews.
