Is Zani de Ferranti worth it?

Hey all,

     I am just wondering about people's thoughts on the music of Zani de Ferranti. It seems like it would really take up a lot of time to learn and even more time to edit the scores, so I definitely won't be posting all of his scores on here as that would take forever. However, I am wondering if people think it would be worth it to learn playing some of it. Here is a link to one of his more substantial compositions I found: http://www.free-scores.com/download-sheet-music.php?pdf=4539

Help on Ballad

in Brass

I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)

New Rule for the page

Just like the title of the group states. Anything and everything guitar related is welcome.  However, I must require that all pieces posted in this group are actually playable on the guitar.  This rule has nothing to do with playable at technical levels according to abilities and levels of experience.  Again all levels of experience from beginner to extremely advanced are welcome.  I'm referring to pieces that contain physically unplayable chords.  Nothing personal but pieces like this I must remove from the page.  

Any Ideas?

Im  a multi instrumentalist (woodwind, brass, pizzicato strings, keyboards) but my main instrument is trombone and i am a jazz trombonist. I am looking for a good song  to arrange with trombone as melody, piano, drums, bass, maybe guitar, maybe vibes. Any good ideas? The O.G. song doesn't have to have a trombone

Tuba, which one? Which key?

in Brass

I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.
