Good music ideas for composing?

Hi. New to musescore and wanted to share good music/piece/or song ideas for composing. I'm a beginner, so I'm not very good. But I've always wanted to play Ms. Pac Man maze madness music on piano... as it's very catchy. Ha ha. If anyone wants to compose this soundtrack, I mean that'd be really neat. Also if you have any other ideas for composing music that you think should be on musescore, go ahead and comment. Thanks. Sorry if this discussion topic already exists. Link below for Ms. Pac man maze madness extended playlist on youtube. lol.

Reverie (original)

in Piano

I’ve been playing/listening to a lot of Grieg’s lyric pieces recently, and one of my favorites is “Phantom” from opus 62 - I just love the texture and mood of the piece. Last week, I sat down at the piano and the the first lines of a new piece came to mind... so this is an original, coming from the feeling Grieg’s “Phantom” gave me. I hope you enjoy it; feedback always welcomed.

Vibrato for Trumpet

in Brass

Hey all!
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!
Thanks!
