    You are pretty gutsy becuase I try to avoid writing for piano. I have written a lot of stuff for the piano in the past but now I try to avoid it becuase there are so many great works already written. I just can't top it hahaha!

    I like the way you capture the character of the instrument. You write really good rapid passages as in the first Etude. I also like the harmonies you use.

    Thanks for sharing. I like to hear what people write for piano.

    Etude 1 reminds me of a combination of chopin with some jazz. Interesting... Ending sort of caught me off guard.

    Etude 2 is cheerful. I like the ending.

    The 3rd one is peaceful yet dramatic. What does floraisons mean in English?

    What did you have in mind for the performer to study in these etudes?

    I think it would be great if you could learn these and record them!

    I would decide what style you want to write each peice in and stick with it. The first one starts "romantic" but then the modulations are so abrupt and feel like they don't belong I get the impression it turns 20th century. I would study some pieces on how to make chords feel like they "want to go there" instead of choosing random chords. Chord tones should resolve atleast somewhat correctly unless you want to sound like Bartok.
    I would use inversions as well. It seems the root of the chord is always in the left hand. Especially in the first one-root fifth octave, root fifth octave kind of patterns. I'd avoid this unles your playing pop rock.
    The third piece seems to stick with in the same vain the whole time. I would vary up some rhythmic qualities instead of always having the eighth not constant for so long. It gets monotonous unless you want to sound like Phillip Glass, which I don't think is your primary goal here. Figure out what you want to say with each measure. I liked the ending of the third one by the way.
