How to be heard over the rest of my band?

So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...

I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound decent during competitions.

So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated. 

Pop Arrangements (open to requests)

I've thought that I'd like to arrange some pop music for clarinet, so feel free to request for arrangements below!! (not guaranteed that i'll accept any though...)

*UPDATE*
I'm currently busy with an arrangement and a couple of compositions, so I'd not be able to take on any offers right now. But feel free to make suggestions (if you don't need them quick) below and I may pick them up one day!

My own music for Eragon, Palencar Valley and the Inheritance Cycle

 
This is a theme I wrote for the Palancar Valley, a location in one of my favorite book series, Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle. If you are unfamiliar with the location, it is where the hero first lives, before setting off on his adventure (I also recommend you go and read the books!). This is a work in progress, there are supposed to be some cymbals and snares, but MuseScore wasn't playing them properly. I have ported this over from Sibelius as an xml file, so that could be where the problem lies. I hope you enjoy it, I plan to be writing quite a lot for this book series!

P.S. I hope I can get away with posting this in the Clarinet group. There's a nice duet with the flutes, so I'm using that as my excuse!

Wind ensembles accompanying a solo double bass

Hello dear woodwinds,

There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:

Notable Suggestion- Respite by David Reeves

I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...

It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.

(If I'm way to active, let me know)
