Cello Arrangement

Hello. New here. Just downloaded the basic programme and rummaging around I can't find what I need so perhaps someone could kindly help. 
My problem is, I have purchased sheet music for a singer which is all in Treble Clef. For me, as a cellist, it would be less hard work to play if it were rewritten and re-arranged in treble, tenor and bass clef. And here's the important bit: a mixture of those three clefs on the same page. I can't see a way of achieving this. Any ideas?

Sparks Fan Club

 Sparks is an american band comprising of two eccentric Los Angeles born brothers named Russell Mael and Ronald Mael. They have been making albums for nearly fifty years, and over that time they have made albums scaling various genres including glam rock, arena rock, disco, new wave, techno, classical, minimalism, etc.
[And have been influenced many bands]
The lyrics to their songs are generally witty, smart-arse, and most of the time, hilarious.
(Ron writes the songs, and Russell sings them)

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.

Clefs reading practice

Hello, 6th year trombonist here, I was looking around for any sheet music that has all 12 major scales in Tenor or Treble clef, because I'm starting to get more and more music with these clefs as part of my repertoire, so could anybody help me find something of the sort? Thank you all so much for choosing to play trombone! (Helping me is secondary, the main point is that you all are cool for choosing the best instrument :3)

Followers

We (Joseph and Hannah) have decided that every time we double in the number of followers (so right now we're at 5, so it'll be 10, 20, 40, 80, maybe throw in something for 100, 160, etc.) we will alternate posting an original composition to thank you! (It may or may not be very good. We're certainly not experts ;)
