(Music Video) Need help to mix and master better.

Hey guys.

I recently made a video of a song I really like.
However, i'm not 100% happy with the mix and master.

Can y'all please give me some tips about mixing a predominantly Vocal and Piano centric track?

here's the link to the video:

I would suggest that the piano sound more present than the vocals. Perhaps a bit louder than needed but certainly very dry compared to vocals. In this piece the vocals are most important and should be the most intimate. I would suggest to make them sound closer buy cutting some mids just a bit and adding s bit more compression and possibly small presence boost(e few db at 4-6k). Make the piano sound more distant by lowing its volume and adding some reverb. The vocals do have that "not recorded in the greatest room" kinda sound to them and not sure if you can re-record them in a better environment, if not i think the mid cut/presence boost can help.
