can someone give me tips on composing classically in the likes of Mozart, Dvorak, Beethoven etc.
A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
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!
Revised and extended!
Being totally honest, I kind of ran out of ideas for this nocturne. However, I might as well upload it anyway since it is listenable at least.

I have a challenge!!! Who can write / re-write Bonobo : Black Sands into sheet music?
Hi there composers,
This is a song without words for Trumpet, and my first attempt with that instrument. I'd be thrilled for your feedback. Thanks! - J
I finished my second prelude. I have to admit that I didn't expect to finish it so quickly and I think the result is very good.
Here are my compositions so far (the ones that fit this group). Comments would be appreciated.

Let's post some original pieces so we can work together to improve are composition skills. I know we're saxes so we don't really care but never mind that.
Be sure to like, critique, and follow! Also, check out our penultimate project, Never Forget!
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!
I was wondering if there was any intermediate saxophone and piano duets that are Jazz that anyone on here has played and would like to tell me about?
Ok, so I finally finished Rain and I would really appreciate your opinion and some advices.
Thanks a lot ;D
