Looking To Write Battery Parts For Practice

Hey everyone and anyone!
I'm looking to write some battery parts for practice.
Whether it be for a Marching Show or Indoor Show, I want to get better as a composer.
I can send you the end result of what I wrote if you want, but this is more of a personal thing.
Anything you send me will be kept personal and will not be reuploaded or shown to anyone else.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day/night! ☺

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)

Breathing & High Notes

First off, I was wondering if anyone knew any techniques to help with having a longer playing time before taking a breath or any exercises to help with breathing too much when playing. I don't have a lot of lung opacity and I take a lot of breaths. Also, when I'm playing high notes sometimes my lips sorta buzz and I thinks it's my embouchure getting too small, but I just want some feedback on that and how to help that. Thanks!

Flutter tonging?

Hi I've been playing flute for about 2 years now and I'm at the intermediate level. At a band camp I went to this summer, and got my vibrato down (with help from my director and a college student) that the guy at my solo and ensemble contest said I needed to learn....But then when the college girl who was helping me said 'oh you need to learn flutter tonging' I was like 'o wat' so now I need help.
