Hi! I seem to recall there used to be a way to specify/choose various muted brass timbres, but I'm having trouble relocating that info: am I misremembering? (My present need is for an F-horn "con sordino," but I'd appreciate the general knowledge of either how to or where to find such timbre mods.) Thanks!
Clarinet 1, 2, and 3 all play as separate sections. The Clarinet 1 section always has all of the try hards on that row. They can never really play together with each other because they are always trying to show that they can play their parts better than all of us sitting behind them. Whenever there is a really technical part (With lots of INK! LOL!) they are the ones who are NEVER afraid to try it, while playing confidently at full volume. Basically these are the only players you can hear out of the entire section for most of the piece. The Clarinet 2 and 3 sections are more unified than the first. We are the players that sit behind and we are the first to be ok with not knowing how to play our part and pulling our clarinets down and letting the firsts handle those difficult parts. The ONLY thing these two rows can do better than first is stay playing together. This is because before even discussing, it is understood that when it comes to the difficult parts we all collectively REST. while they continue. You can never hear us when we are playing by ourselves, and you won't ever hear us playing over the Clarinet 1 row like we are supposed to, because we are always unsure of how our parts are supposed to sound.
I just arranged a version of Bach's Cello Suite no. 1 Prelude.
Could really use any opinions!
Revised and extended!
I arranged another piece from Morse. Check it out, let me know what you think. Chances are, if you comment on mine, I'll take a look at yours. https://musescore.com/user/31989152/scores/5882300
Being totally honest, I kind of ran out of ideas for this nocturne. However, I might as well upload it anyway since it is listenable at least.

Made my first Nocturne (E Major) today. If you want to listen, here is the link:
I have a challenge!!! Who can write / re-write Bonobo : Black Sands into sheet music?
Hi there composers,
This is a song without words for Trumpet, and my first attempt with that instrument. I'd be thrilled for your feedback. Thanks! - J
I finished my second prelude. I have to admit that I didn't expect to finish it so quickly and I think the result is very good.
Here are my compositions so far (the ones that fit this group). Comments would be appreciated.

Welcome to the group, collaborative Composers. This group aims to let composers work together and help eachother. Or you can ask for help with a piece you`re working on.
Let's post some original pieces so we can work together to improve are composition skills. I know we're saxes so we don't really care but never mind that.
This one is for all beginning to intermediate trumpets. Due to my chosen sport season being over, I have more time to help new players. I can do anything from quick messages to some private call lessons. These are all free but the lessons would have to be planned a week in advance.
If you are interested, let me know! You can message me on MuseScore or use one of the methods below
Please only call on:

Hello Fellow Brass Musicians,
I have been playing trumpet for a while now. My range goes all the way to double C and a Double B flat(Meaning a good tone on B Flat). As my range goes up, I noticed that my resistance is not as good (I loose my chops faster, and can only practice my music for an hour before I have to stop) I have tried loosening up and using more air to hit high notes but it still doesn't work. If any of you could help, I would appreciate it so much!
