I finished this piece with the intention of making 2 other movements to compliment it, but I run into a problem on what the other movements should sound like. I'm debating on if I should mimic the styles of Britten's "Simple Symphony op.4" or if I should follow the concept of Bartok's String Quartet no.4

Let me know what best suits this quirky piece, enjoy!!

Fun little piece. It sounds like the 2nd or 3rd movement of a 4-movement work - Britten's Simple Symphony seems a good model - add a slow movement before or after this one, then a first movement and finale which can either share material (ala Bartok) or be completely independent. Since this movement is very light and playful the other movements should have a playfulness to them as well, nothing too heavy (so no elegies or funereal marches or really much in a minor key - keep it vastly major-key throughout). For lightness you could base a movement off e.g. Haydn or Mozart string quartets? Would be cool to hear the entire thing once completed. Good job
