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!

Hello

I use to play the horn at my school (like 5 years ago) and I didn't play until last week when I catch up to get a second hand horn.

I'm starting again with this instrument (my favorite) so... I hope I can get better on it.

Like an anime and video game lover I have been seen there is not much of those songs for horn so my idea is to transpose and arrange some of those song and upload it here on Musescore (also popular songs). I'm new on this thing of writting music so I will like to have some support if I need.

I'm from Panama, my main language is Spanish btw.

Thanks for your time.

EDIT: I have already uploaded 2 scores on my profile

Just joined Musescore. I am trying to upload a XML and the upload button does not work. i have not been able to upload any file at all to the system. I'm sure its something obvious but any pointers in the right direction welcome.
