Hi my name is Jon Shimabukuro and I composed a song that I named "Dancing on the Moon by Jon Shimabukuro". I uploaded it on You Tube. I would love for you to watch it and tell me what you think of it. Thank you for your time.

Jon, I enjoyed listening to your composition. The recording quality may not have been the greatest, and the guitar may have been a bit out of tune, but these things are of little importance.

You clearly have knowledge of music written for the guitar. The multi-voicing is very nice throughout- the recurring pattern of the bass note, answered by the treble- and it's very pleasant to listen to.

My constructive criticism would run along the lines that the piece is- for me- a bit unbalanced, in that there isn't enough of a melody: I know there is a tune, but to me it seemed much more simply like an extended ostinato pattern.

For me, the greatest difficulty in composition is not the elements themselves, but in fusing them all together in a way that seems natural and inevitable. What you have is already very nice, but I think you can make it even greater if you can come up with a distinctive melody that goes together seamlessly with what you have already written.

Keep it up!

Learning exceeds reading cover-to-cover. It stretches beyond the walls of any teaching institution. When one pays attention, one gains knowledge.

Everyone has a story to tell. Each story comes from one's unique knowledge and hands-on experience. These are valuable assets which are owned by each and every one of us.

Teaching is not restricted to those with specific certifications. Whether one is aware of it or not, by living one's life one teaches others through telling and showing - setting examples through the manifestation of thoughts (intentions) into words and actions. If anyone were to pause and think about how- and how much- he affects others, even with a simple word or a small gesture, he would be surprised at the degree to which he affects, both positively and negatively, those lives whom he has touched.

Share your experience and help others by telling your story. You may never find out whose lives you may have touched, but you know that by sharing, you care, and that, the knowledge is out there to be taken.

Please fill in the contact form letting us know which topic you would like to participate in our Sharing-is-Caring campaign, and how you would like to share; an article, a video or a picture.
