I think your ideas and goals shined through well in your final piece, the bells definitely added the touch of magic you were looking for. However, I think the synchronization could have been a little bit tighter, especially at the beginning. It was a little bit distracting when the words appearing and the action didn't seem to match what the music was doing. Although I liked each individual section of music, overall the piece didn't really seem to be cohesive. I think you could have integrated pieces of earlier melodies into later ones, to give the piece and overall cohesion instead of breaking it up into individual sections that are discrete. I did think your ideas for starting and ending the piece were strong, though. Your beginning started out slow and created intrigue. I liked that you included those same sounds at the end to provide closure, and your ending using the false cadence was interesting. Great work!
