I am fairly new to writing piano music and don't play piano but wanted to start writing some music for it. i would really appreciate and feedback and advice you have!
So my school is trying out a new program this year based off of a suggestion I brought forward, by starting a jazz choir. I figured I'd help cement it a little bit by bringing some arrangements and compositions forward so that they'd have something to sing. Tl;dr, here's my first choral composition, any constructive feedback is greatly appreciated!

You may already heard about us. We're the Young Composers' Online Orchestra ("YCOO"). Recently, we've started a new project - we're gonna play Elliot Butler's Drama for Orchestra No. 6.
In the process of preparing the parts for our members, we found out that we don't have any English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!
If you can play one (or more :P) of those instruments, please consider joining us either forever, or for the current project only. You could save a LOT of effort and hope we're all giving in our orchestra.
Have a great day,
Milan Steklý, moderator of the YCOO

Read the description for some interesting remarks and discussions.
I don't usually upload a harmonic analysis. But I decided to do so for Rondo a Cappricio. I was wondering, do I have the key changes in the right place? Is my Roman numeral analysis for each of the keys accurate(I had to use lyrics for the Roman numeral analysis and framed staff text for the key changes, not ideal but it's okay)?
I went to the first phrase of the Bb major section and then decided to upload it. I am still analyzing the rest of the piece, but what do you think of my harmonic analysis so far? Here is the link:

This is a collection of pep tunes I arranged; I probably missed some really popular ones so please give me suggestions for new ones to add
I made a new piece but it is only the rough draft.
It would help me tremendously if you took a moment to critique it.
How do you motivate your students?
Mainly, what do you do to encourage them to practice and progress?
I'd love to learn any ideas or tips regarding this. :D
