Critique my First Ever Piece

Hello Musescore! 
I am a piano player and am very much new to composing. What I have here is a short little something I came up with on the piano and decided it sounded like it would be good for some strings. I have never written for any stringed instrument. Please give it a listen and tell me your thoughts whether you think there's some potential in me as a composer. Thanks a bunch!

I can try your piano concerto!

in Piano

 Hello everyone!
I want to play your original piano concerto! I have always wanted to play a concerto, and I think I can do us both a favor by giving a mini "commission" for your piece! After I learn it, it will go on YouTube:

I do have a few requirements:
-Please keep it under 6 minutes long. This can be an extract from a movement, but preferably an entire movement so that the video sounds complete.
-THE PIECE HAS TO BE PLAYABLE! I WILL NOT play a seemingly impossible (or impeccably difficult) concerto because I can't and I am not a virtuoso pianist.
-Please upload a score without the piano part. I will be uploading it to YouTube so I need a track without the piano part in it (as well as one with it, of course!). This means I will need you to upload a score to Musescore without the piano part for me to practice with and also so I can get an MP3 with only the orchestra.
-I will only choose one concerto to play. Since there are so many great composers on Musescore, I think I should run by a LOT of pieces. For that reason, I will have to pick only one piece for a commission.
-It must be original. I don't want to play a concerto that is almost identical to one that already exists. This means I won't accept transcriptions or anything like that. I want all of the composer in this concerto.
-Cadenzas are accepted. I can definitely play a cadenza for a concerto, but I strongly prefer a piece with orchestra.

I don't know how long it will take me to learn your concerto. I will definitely focus on making the most out of this experience for you AND me.
Also, if I don't pick your concerto, I can still upload it to YouTube if you want! I can post a MIDI visualization like many of my other videos on the channel.

Let's make this event a good one!
