Reached composers block

So, you know how I have been working on the 50 follower special composition right? Well, I am 2/3 of the way through it and even include a short bit of canon in the composition. But after this canonic moment, I can't seem to make further progress. I know that I want to go back to G major by means of a plagal cadence(which would require me to substitute C major for C#°) and that I want to end the piece with a plagal cadence.

I have been having this composers block for about a week now. I usually embrace it and just move on to composing something else, but this is a 50 follower special composition that I have been working on.

Songs for alto and bari sax

So I have been playing alto for almost two years and I started on the bari sax and I'm pretty good. But all my band music was thrown out for my alto sax(didn't play bari in my band) and I'm looking for songs to play and learn. I want to get better at Bari for the upcoming school year since thats why I'm playing the bari over the summer. Thanks! Hard, easy and in between songs are just fine :)

Any tips for a "new" alto player?

Hey there! I just got an alto sax from my local music shop a couple of weeks ago. I'm already experienced with many instruments (Piano, Flute, Clarinet) and was wondering if you guys could help me out in any way!

I've kind of played an alto before, as in  a friend in my band give me a crash course. (I can play the jeopardy theme song XDD) 

Any tips you all would be very much appreciated!
