Hello! A Hetalian fan shows up!

First of all, I want to say that my English is not very good, because I am Spanish.
I'm in 1st grade professional or seventh grade flute (I've been at the music conservatory for 5 years). I'm a serious fan of Axis Powers Hetalia (I love it). And ... I'm a girl. I love music and I'm pretty good. I want to ask ... Anyone who can make scores of Hetalia songs? Thank you!!

New To The Group - P!ATD Songs

Hey Guys,
I just joined the group like literally right now. I am a serious Panic! at the Disco fan and I was wondering if anyone would be able to make some more P!ATD Scores for me to play as there aren't very many for Flute. If you didn't already guess, I play  the Flute and I am at a Intermediate to Professional Stage. (I have been playing for 3 Years going on 4) Thanks So much!!! HAPPY FLUTING!!

Circular Breathing

So, I made it my goal to try and play Flight of the Bumblebee before my High school experience ends and I need help learning how to do circular breathing. I've seen videos as to how to do it and have been trying for a week with no progress. I'm only in Grade 10 at the moment and is halfway through semester 2. That means I've got more than two years to do this. Can anyone give me some tips? I've got my technique down for the flute and I think that I'm pretty decent--tone and tonguing wise. The only thing that needs work is breathing for me. I'd appreciate it if you could also give me some tips regarding my breathing. 
Thanks! 

How to be heard over rest of 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 good during competitions.
