I've been working a lot with many piano pieces.
This is the latest one.

Hope you enjoy it.

pretty good

woah. idk why but this song just brought back a bunch of memories of a girl that is leaving for the navy soon. It was crazy hearing the song. I like it.


VERY nice song. It could use some vocals if you have the time though. (Sorry, I just really like calm music with vocals. Well, calm music in general.) Other than that this is one of the best pieces f music that I've heard.

Manhart responds:

Thank you very much for the kind review. I like calm music too :)
I might consider making some calm lyrics and sing to it.

Love it.

It's got a lot of really great stuff happening in there. I'm at a loss when I try to think of any kind of constructive criticism for this - there's nothing I find I can criticise. (Maybe potentially that the floor tom on the drums doesn't quite blend perfectly, but that's not only personal opinion but a stylistic thing that would be useless to criticise)

I think this is just fantastic. 10/10, 5/5, favs. I can see this in a movie or as a theme in a game very, very easily. Damn, this is good.

Power to you, Manhart!

Manhart responds:

Thanks a lot for the review. I am very glad you liked it.
Power to you too ObsidianSnow ! :D


You are a true master of music
Don't let anyone else tell you different

This is so uplifting
I know people that sit inside all day playing piano and guitar and still can't make this type music (namely myself)


Manhart responds:

lol thanks dude.
I spend a lot of time making music too, but I must admit that this song only took a few hours to make.

5|5 - Respect

Simply put, I was caught off-guard by stumbling upon such a fantastic piece under the new submissions. Always nice to be surprised that way. I have to say I'm particularly loving the little section from 1:20 - 1:52.

Manhart responds:

haha nice to surprise somebody ! :))
Thank you for the respect, and of course the 10 !
