Transitioning from single to double horn

Hey guys, I'm a trumpet player who was also a self-taught horn player for a year. I haven't played in a while but I'm thinking of picking it up again. I know most beginners start off with a single F horn, and that's the route I plan on taking. For those of you who have switched from single to double F/Bb horn, was it difficult in terms of learning the new fingerings? I know they are very different, does anyone have any way to learn the new fingerings quickly? Thanks!

Admin Contest #2!

Hello everyone,

I know this is a very busy time of year, but I thought I might introduce this competition now so you can brainstorm ideas. Like the previous admin contest, this contest involves writing. Two pictures are posted below and you must find a way to combine the two into a humorous story. 

This contest is a little harder than the last one because the length of the story should be 1,000-1,500 words long. If it fails to meet the word count, it will be disqualified.

A link to the story in Google docs should be sent to my email: music4christ29@gmail.com

Here are the links to the photos that are to be used:

**The stories are due by Friday, June 28**

I can't wait to see your submissions! They should be I N T E R E S T I N G ... :P

You Tube Audio scores -- bottom 400 pixels getting cut off

https://musescore.com/user/28728657/scores/5618597 for example (select YouTube source or this doesn't happen). Playing any score with a YouTube audio source (not video) leaves a grey box at the bottom of the score, obliterating what should be there.  This has been going on for about a week; I had hoped it would get fixed, but ...  That's Firefox 67.0.2, Mac Mojave.10.4.5.

What do you think about this piece?

   Hi, my music school just emailed me telling they've made a  local Summer Competition which deadline is the 1st of September, basically this competition consist of composing a piece which is 1 to 2min long (it doesn't matter which category eg. Piano solos, Orchestra, etc...), and the winner will win 100 Euro to spend in Music books and a free year of studies. So i've made this little piano concerto with strings that is about 1:20min long.Could you tell me in comments what to change/improve and tell me if you liked? That would be really really appreciated! :-)
