Feedback on my nocturne

I uploaded my nocturne. Here is the link:

I would love some feedback on it. I have heard from another person that I kind of use the same rhythm over and over. I honestly didn't plan on changing the rhythm because nocturnes typically will have a triplet rhythm. And the rhythm of the melody I think is part of why it sounds so beautiful to me. Also it is Bb which is a key I associate with a moonlit night.

I composed it over 3 days.  Anyway, what do you think? 

New Bari Sax Player

I switched to bari about a month ago and I'm in marching band right now so I've already gotten used to most things about the bari but I still am having trouble with phrasing and just playing longer. Is there anyone who can help? Also does anyone have any other tips and tricks about other parts of playing it?

Duda un poco tontilla. / Query a little silly.

¡Hola! Espero que estén todos bien. Les hago una pequeña consulta: ¿Cómo puedo transcribir los compases 78, 79, 80, 81 y 82 de "Fur Elise" de Beethoven? Estuve intentando con varias alternativas pero ninguna me resulta. Busqué por Google y nada. ¿Qué significan esos "3" arriba de cada tres semicorcheas? Disculpen las molestias, soy nueva en este programa y me parece una maravilla. Gracias de antemano.

Hello! I hope everybody is fine. I ask you a little question: How can I transcribe bars 78, 79, 80, 81 and 82 of "Fur Elise" by Beethoven? I was trying with several alternatives but none of them work for me. I searched for Google and nothing. What do those "3" mean above every three sixteenths? Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm new to this program and I think it's wonderful. Thanks in advance.

Percussion Advice

Hi all!

I am currently working on a project that sounds more like a soundtrack than a classical piece, and I have no experience with percussion instruments. Does anyone know of a good resource to familiarize myself with the different percussion instruments and their uses in an orchestra, especially as it related to soundtrack music? I know what I want the percussion in the score to sound like but I do not know the best instruments to use to make those sounds.

Any help is appreciated!

Tuplets.

In the space of 2 quarter notes am attempting to write a 7 note tuplet for a snare part that matches up with a quarter note triplet  on a bass part.  It's a little off.  The Ctrl 3 and Ctrl 7 functions work but the results don't match.  I can play it but the music doesn't match up.  Any help is appreciated.
