Etude-Coronation March in G Major

Uploaded on Feb 27, 2017

...OK, this is quite possibly the least march-like of all the marches I have composed so far. It sounds stately and regal, like a coronation march, but it's in 3/4 time! Oh, and it's also an etude that focuses on beat subdivision. The B section kicks it into high gear with its triplets, portions of 16th-note sextuplets, and 32nd notes.

I composed the A section years ago, while I composed the melody of the B section more recently than that but still more than a year ago. I've currently put a simple accompaniment on the B section. Back when I composed the A section, I thought that changing the key of a theme made it different enough, but I find the A section to be quite repetitive nowadays.

(Structure: A-B-A)
(Structure of A section: A-A-A'-A-A'-A-Codetta)
(Structure of B section: B1-B1-B2-B2)

It is a very nice song. It brings back memories of my childhood. I love it!
Measures 8, 16 and 24 sound a bit repetitive. Maybe you could vary it a bit more? Love the maestoso feel of this!
The stateliness was all very enjoyable.
