So am I, and I've been shooting off and on for forty years.
The histograms of your images - at least the ones I checked - are peculiar. None of them are evenly distributed. And the amount of whites seems low. You're choosing scenes with rather challenging exposures. When you expose wrongly, the resultant muddy image does not appear sharp. I'm not saying that all are poorly exposed, but I think that's true for the first three.
The Alice Cooper shot - well, the left-most guy IS in focus. Doing stage lighting is quite hard. You did better than I ever did for a night/stage shot.

I'd say you're learning very well. I love that first, moody shot. Old Alice is looking long in the tooth.
