I´m new on Musescore; Please Help on drum notation.

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.

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!

Transitioning from single to double horn

Hey guys, I'm a trumpet player who was also a self-taught horn player for a year. I haven't played in a while but I'm thinking of picking it up again. I know most beginners start off with a single F horn, and that's the route I plan on taking. For those of you who have switched from single to double F/Bb horn, was it difficult in terms of learning the new fingerings? I know they are very different, does anyone have any way to learn the new fingerings quickly? Thanks!
