Just finished a suite for solo cello, comments and advises are welcomed

I started the first section as an exercise for modulation, and then decided to expand it into a dance suite. I wrote the sections in the following sequence: prelude, gigue, sarabande, allemande, and minuet.
The minuet was written yesterday during a day-long severe headache, which is a little different from the other parts. I am not sure if it sounds alright here, or I should replace it with a "normal" one.
Any comments about this suite is welcomed!

Also, I would be grateful if cellists can help me to correct the notation (many thanks to Teodor Lontos for his previous help).
And to you, I have 2 questions:
1. Above which pitch would you prefer a treble clef?
2. For a piece with changing tones, would you prefer key signatures or just mark it with the notes (as the present version does)?

Thanks and have a nice Sunday.

Scatman's World, an arrangement for solo piano

Allo, I've recently (mostly) finished an arrangement of one of my most favorite songs, "Scatman's World".  If you've never heard of Scatman John, I recommend "Scatman (ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop)" and my aforementioned favorite as and introduction to who he is.  I may never be satisfied with what I write, so I may update it now and then or list a version differing to the first or repetitive versions.

The new kid on the block...

My name is Don.  I wonder if there is room in this group for an old kid?  I live in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area.  I have been arranging and composing for 4 or 5 years now.  I use to sell my sheet music.  It gives me a thrill, the goosebumps, and a smile when someone buys my work for their choir/chorus to learn and perform.  I am...
