Struggling

So I want to learn how to play the song Into The Unknown from Frozen 2, and I found most of the notes and I'm trying my best to compose my own version of it, because I can't find a flute solo for it anywhere. There's a part where it goes "ah ah ah ah" in a really high pitched note, but I can't find or figure out what notes they are! So if you know what notes they are or you know a place where I can get the song in a flute solo version, please let me know.

THE HONEST GUITARIST

Hello and welcome to the "Honest Guitarist" a community of musicians on  common ground to mastering music in general and the guitar specifically.
First, a thank you to J.Herman for Everything Guitar and opening the way for guitar players to communicate their experiences.
To be perfectly honest and avoid wasting the readers time, let me state clearly that the ideas presented here are targeted toward the intermediate to advanced player and represents the most basic music and guitar knowledge that an aspiring musician should have command of before moving to more advanced study.
Although the material is advanced, any player should find something of interest to study or to encourage further research. 
The idea for presenting such a project was born of my own experiences.
After many years of playing I decided to further my studies under a professional tutor, only to discover many weaknesses in areas of music, harmonic function and guitar technique.
Although the experience was inspiring it was, to a greater extent, disheartening, discouraging and expensive.
While I did continue with my studies I also kept a list of things that I realized I should have known before attempting to learn at the "bended knee" of a professional teacher.

                                                                 *   *   *
After using MuseScore for some time and after recently completing a "master class" (I use the term loosely) it seemed to me that this great music software program could serve an excellent teaching tool to present that exact information.
Hopefully, the "scores" presented will generate some serious thought and study while the student awaits the next book or video or Heaven forbid spends a small fortune on Skype lessons.

I'm working on Book #1 and in the mean time here is a voicing of "Christmas Time Is Here"  for guitarists this season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
   

Timbre for con sordino F horn?

in Brass

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!

Resistance Training

in Brass

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!
Thanks!
