        I personally agree more with attaching centered or to the right of the 
starting note over starting it on the note's left. As for the right, I've 
seen both styles at barlines where it ends before and it ends at the note 
after the barline, and usually prefer the appearance of it cutting off before 
because of how it doesn't split as often across new lines.
        The last dynamic does seem a little high to me. I'll do my research 
voicing more than my observed opinions; I've only technically learned that 
piano dynamics should usually be centered.
        As for slurs, maybe consider looking at
regression/out-www/ to understand the decisions being made 
about attachment.
