Solo and Ensemble Season

in Brass

Two days ago my Band Director has annoced that Solo and Ensemble Season has begun and we need to find groups. I’ve found my group, and it consist of 2 Trumpets, 2 Trombones and 1 Tuba. I’ve been searching everywhere for a piece that has the instruments we play, is there anyone who has composed/transcomposed a Solo and Ensemble Quintet like ours? Or recommend a piece that we can play/perform? btw: we are in the Wind Symphony Band in our high school.

Continuing a Set

Hey! I'm a big fan of your sheet music! I wanted to ask if you had any intention of continuing your set of trombone Steven Universe songs since the new movie came out. I'd love it if you made some trombone arrangements for the OST, but if not then that's okay, I'm sure you're making other bangers out here.

Timbre for con sordino F horn?

in Brass

Hi!  I seem to recall there used to be a way to specify/choose various muted brass timbres, but I'm having trouble relocating that info: am I misremembering?  (My present need is for an F-horn "con sordino," but I'd appreciate the general knowledge of either how to or where to find such timbre mods.)  Thanks!

Resistance Training

in Brass

Hello Fellow Brass Musicians,

I have been playing trumpet for a while now. My range goes all the way to double C and a Double B flat(Meaning a good tone on B Flat). As my range goes up, I noticed that my resistance is not as good (I loose my chops faster, and can only practice my music for an hour before I have to stop) I have tried loosening up and using more air to hit high notes but it still doesn't work. If any of you could help, I would appreciate it so much!
Thanks!
