A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
I would like to write some notes for drums. The rhythmic part I have no problem, but in big band ensemble I see that it is written in musical notation according to how the arrangement is in winds or brass sections. I read the word "assembly" on top of the battery staff. The question is, how do you write this arrangement? I cannot find the topic in the Musescore manual or guide.
Of course, I thank the entire community if you can send me a link to this chapter.
I am trying to find sheet music from the MSU Boston shows and I am having trouble finding it. If possible could someone take a crack at composing foreplay/long time?
(include woodwinds not just brass)
Hope y'all are having a great day!
Please check out my new piece for solo piano ( Rondo Comique):

This one is mainly a question for high brass but if any other could help me that would be great. I'm in 11th grade and I am a 3rd year trumpet. Right now, we are focusing on marching songs, but after Football season, we mainly play concert songs. One of those is a pretty well known trumpet piece called "A Trumpeter's Lullaby". I normally am a second chair but my band director "surprised me" and gave me solo. I've played it before but never solo. Since I am doing the solo, should I use vibrato at the appropriate times? If so, what method should I use? I obviously wouldn't use the wind speed method. So I would either use my hand or move my jaw slightly. Which one should I use? Let me know!
noticed that i couldn't find a 100% correct or close to it transcription of megalovania of careless whisper for alto sax.
made one of each.
They're both also in the group sheet music
