Composing a Nocturne

So you know how I composed a nocturne before? It's now on my YouTube  channel if you want to check it out. Here is the link to my previous  nocturne if you want to listen to it:

But  I am planning on composing a second nocturne and uploading it here. I  know that it has to be evocative of the night but is there anything else  I need to take into consideration when writing a nocturne? 

Circular Breathing

So, I made it my goal to try and play Flight of the Bumblebee before my High school experience ends and I need help learning how to do circular breathing. I've seen videos as to how to do it and have been trying for a week with no progress. I'm only in Grade 10 at the moment and is halfway through semester 2. That means I've got more than two years to do this. Can anyone give me some tips? I've got my technique down for the flute and I think that I'm pretty decent--tone and tonguing wise. The only thing that needs work is breathing for me. I'd appreciate it if you could also give me some tips regarding my breathing. 
Thanks! 

Updated Piano/Harpsichord Suite. Please would love feedback!!

A little over a week ago, I posted for the first time on here. What I posted was the Allemande to my Piano Suite. Now I almost has 100 views!!! I would like to thank everyone that listened to it. I have finished the next two movements and I hope that they are enjoyable as well. I would love to hear any feedback for I helps a lot. Cheers!

It was supposed to be in C major.

Hi everyone, I've been trying to compose pieces for two days and playing the piano for three months so it sounds fair to say that I'm new to most of it all. 
I know my C and G scales so I supposed it'd be reasonable to try to compose something but both my pieces seem to eventually leave the C key signature as I add things which sound pleasant to my ears. 

Any chance you could let me know what you think of them ?
