Short Pieces To Play

in Piano

So basically I'm 11 years old and taking DipABRSM for piano and need some help with the sight-reading section. I already finished playing all the scores on the books that I've purchased, and am wondering if any of y'all have some suggestions. Thank you!

Comment on this piece?

Hey there ! I am trying to learn to compose (so far, I use Concise Introduction to tonal harmony), and this is what I did after reading the chapter on "Sentences and Other Phrase Types".

Could you tell me what you think please? Also do you have an other book to suggest? I would especially love to learn how to write for drums ? (like how to do interesting rhythms?)

Thank you !

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).
