Pro General Comments: Hi Paul , it would help to know if you wrote this for yourself to promote and perform or if you wrote it for others to record. My evaluation would be very different for both. The subject matter suggests to me that this is about a child who is being physically abused by someone in her family. This type of song isn't exactly radio friendly but it can still be an effective song for groups and causes fighting to end child abuse. It's very sad and dark and it will most likely make an emotional connection with everyone who has been personally impacted by child abuse. I give you credit for tackling this very disturbing problem. The prosody is good...the music matches the lyric...the vocal is powerful and with the the strong piano the song gets a little loud in spots. Just my opinion but I felt the piano was competing with your vocal to be heard. This would be a much more effective song with a slightly slower tempo and a more subdued piano accompaniment. I would take out the percussion part and go with a piano/vocal

Quote From Pro: Paul, go ahead and e-mail me both versions along with any lyric changes you made... my3kidsmusic@comcast.net I hope this critique was helpful...if you have any questions include them in your e-mail and I'll respond. Bob
