Help on Ballad

in Brass

I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)

Tuba, which one? Which key?

in Brass

I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.

Clefs reading practice

Hello, 6th year trombonist here, I was looking around for any sheet music that has all 12 major scales in Tenor or Treble clef, because I'm starting to get more and more music with these clefs as part of my repertoire, so could anybody help me find something of the sort? Thank you all so much for choosing to play trombone! (Helping me is secondary, the main point is that you all are cool for choosing the best instrument :3)
