Metroid Show for Drum Corps

Hello, I am currently working on writing a show for drum corps based on the music from the Metroid series. I would love for you to check it out at

Feel free to leave feedback or just say which part is your favorite. Since this show is still under production, if you have a favorite track from the series, let me know and I can try to incorporate it. 

What key to go to with the G7?

I am composing my first bagatelle right now. I decided to do it in rondo form and in a major key. Not only that, but I went for my avoid key, C major. As you can probably tell, I usually avoid composing in C major. Why? Because it sounds boring, Why? Because a hint of chromaticism makes me question whether or not I am modulating to another key.

Anyway, I have a G7 harmony and following that, 4 measures of a first ending with C major harmony. Now, I want to go somewhere else with this G7. I can think of a few keys that G7 can convincingly lead to. G major for obvious reasons is one key that G7 can convincingly lead to, at least if it is in an inversion. A minor is also convincingly lead to by treating the G7 as the subtonic. I can go to F also, if I resolve the G7 to C first.

I was thinking of reserving the minor key for when I get to the C section. So that means that I am leading to a major key other than C major. But it is hard for me to decide whether I should go to F major or G major, or a key not as closely related to C major(and note, I do think of the parallel minor as being closely related but I don't think of the mediant minor as being closely related at all).

Hi! I'm excited to see all these viola players gathered in one group. It's so hard to find a good spot like this because violas are so underrated. Anyways, I'm an aspiring viola player who needs a LOT of practice, and I was wondering if any of the more experienced players could recommend some music that might be good for someone playing at a 6th-8th grade level. I've only been playing for 3 years, so I think that would be a good area for me. Thanks!

How to Delete Extra Rest?

Hello.
I have an extra rest in a measure - it actually make the measure longer than what is specified in the time signature. How do I delete it? I can select it but none of the usual removal commands work. If I use "Control-Delete" the rest of the score is deleted.
Help will be appreciate.
I'm new to the software - it looks cool so far!
Thanks.
