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!

Musecorps Composition Competition #1 - Colors!

Hello, everyone!

I've been sitting on this group for over a year without really doing anything with it. Its original purpose was to bring together the drum corps community on MuseScore by allowing others to post their own drum corps arrangements. In my original post on this group, I mentioned that I wanted to start a series of competitions that you guys can participate in, and I'm happy to say that I'm going to give a go, starting today!

So, what is the first competition?

I want to start off with something simple: Create a drum corps arrangement for any song that has a color in its name.

Here are the rules:
- Follow typical drum corps format (3 trumpet, 2 mellophone, 3 baritone, 1-2 tuba)
- You don't need to include percussion, but it might increase your chances of winning
- Only submit one arrangement per person!
- Arrangement must be at least 1:30 long, but no more than 5:00

When you're ready to enter, just reply to this post with a link to your arrangement. 

So, if you win... what do you actually win? In the future, I hope to offer a month of Musescore Pro to winners. Maybe if enough people show interest? For this first competition, though, I will post the winner's arrangement to my YouTube channel, with a link(s) to whatever you want to advertise. Your YouTube, your Instagram, whatever!

Assuming people actually participate, I plan to end this competition by Tuesday, 10/15, by 10PM EST. Have fun!

Flute Sonata in Eb, need some feedback

If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link to my flute sonata:

https://musescore.com/user/50070/scores/5703661

I nicknamed it The Haydn Sonata because I am trying to get across a Haydnesque feel to it. I have noticed these things predominant in each composer of the Classical Period Trifecta:

  • Haydn: Humor, melodic and harmonic surprises
  • Mozart: Alberti bass, effortless grace
  • Beethoven: Sheer power, even when the melody is more lyrical


Haydn is the one who inspired me to write this flute sonata. I wrote the sonata exposition in just an hour and this is the first sonata for a duet that actually has a finished exposition.

There are quite a few surprises in my sonata exposition. Here they are:

Bar 5: Sudden entry of the flute and absence of the piano 
Bar 6: Sudden reentry of the piano 
Bar 10: Short diminuendo, like the theme isn't quite done yet 
Bar 11: Short staccato variant of the theme over a syncopated bass 
Bar 14: Sudden forte cadence, theme is now finished 
Bar 15: Piano dynamic in transition material right after a cadence at forte, sudden absence of the flute 
Bar 21: Forte dynamic when transition material is taken up an octave, flute comes back 
Bar 26: Piano dynamic yet again, descending trill motive 
Bar 41: Very busy texture as the repeat comes closer 
Bar 47: Sudden change in texture, sudden dynamic change as it repeats

I'm wondering, is my sonata exposition Haydnesque in its nature? I tried to get a Haydnesque feel to it by being more humorous than serious with the music. Anything impossible for the flutist? Does it feel like a Molto Allegro to you(tempo is at quarter note = 140 BPM)? Or should I just take the Molto off and just have Allegro as my tempo marking?
