Please comment on my first composition

• Mar 30, 2021 - 22:33

At the age of 71, I am writing my first piece of music. I have written a lullaby tune for a children's poem I used to read/sing to my children and I have begun composing a piano accompaniment and would welcome any and all comments on the tune and/or the start of the piano part.
I have no formal musical education, and have no idea how many rules and conventions I am breaking.
Thanks in advance,

Nice job - I actually really like that! the only thing I would say is that those syncopated F#s might be better written as two tied 8th notes rather than a quarter note, just so that the 3rd beat is "visible." that just makes it easier for a performer. I still really like it - nice first composition!
