Check out my new composition for piano!

https://musescore.com/user/16629756/scores/5811074
This is the first score I have uploaded on this site and can essentially be described as an agglomeration of different ideas tied up into one 4-movement piece. This piece is not yet complete and I'd love to hear your honest opinions as well as any suggestions for how I can improve my skills as a composer or the piece in general. As a final note, thank you for listening!   

Vibrato for Trumpet

in Brass

Hey all!
This one is mainly a question for high brass but if any other could help me that would be great. I'm in 11th grade and I am a 3rd year trumpet. Right now, we are focusing on marching songs, but after Football season, we mainly play concert songs. One of those is a pretty well known trumpet piece called "A Trumpeter's Lullaby". I normally am a second chair but my band director "surprised me" and gave me solo. I've played it before but never solo. Since I am doing the solo, should I use vibrato at the appropriate times? If so, what method should I use? I obviously wouldn't use the wind speed method. So I would either use my hand or move my jaw slightly. Which one should I use? Let me know!
Thanks!
