Introduction & Transposing

in Brass

Hello.  I'm a new member of the group & a fairly inexperienced musescore user.  I've been playing the trombone for 51 years & the euphonium & baritone for 42.  @ 10 of those years professionally & 25 semi-professionally, & the rest just for fun.  I've played in many groups of different styles, but my favorites have been big band, brass quintet, & symphony orchestra.  I've also enjoyed tuba-euphonium ensembles & trombone ensembles.  Merry TubaChristmas is one of my favorite annual events.  Due to pain & wear and tear, I've recently had to put down my trombone - at least for  a while.  But I'm enjoying playing my new euphonium.  I've been arranging for big band & brass ensembles for more than 20 years.

This may be the wrong place for this question... Is there a way to transpose & print the transposition?  Thanks in advance.

Flute Notes Update

Hey guys, didn't see all those replies coming lol. Anyways, I've been practicing Girl/Girls/Boys by P!ATD. 

I'm starting to realize that the first week or so, you have to get the notes down first, then your fingers, magically, just remeber where your fingers go. If you know what I mean.

Do y'all agree?

by the way here's the link to the music: https://musescore.com/user/5584616/scores/1374236

The double bass

A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.

*gasp*

Does anyone have any tips for getting the most out of your air? I am just starting out on flute which I am already loving, but I run out of breath really quickly. It's probably because I go an octave higher by breathing harder even though I'm not really supposed to do that. HELP PLEASE!!!!!
