How to be heard over rest of band?

So im in marching band and I'm the only flute out of 16 hornline, mostly brass...

I keep trying to play louder but it always goes up an octave or makes an awful screeching noise. Even though I have been playing for about two years, I've never found a solution to the problem.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on how to play louder but still sound good during competitions.

Anybody care to explain what's going on?

in Piano

OK. I've got a question for anybody out there.

Someone on Roblox recently asked me to transcribe a piano piece. 

I go to look at the piece itself and I see in the treble clef (2/4, if you are curious) 1 quarter note followed by an 8th rest followed by an eighth note proceeded by ANOTHER quarter note/eighth rest/eighth note in that same measure.
This pattern continues at various places throughout the song.

Does anybody want to explain this? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks, everyone!

HIGH SCHOOL UPDATE

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your love and support really worked! I made my symphonic band as a freshie! I got 6th chair out of 8 symphonic flutes and   7 concert flutes. So how did auditions go? I did all of my scales and arpeggios in 2 octaves (minus Bb, which is the end of me so I only did it in one octave), ALMOST flopped on my chromatic but MADE IT, played my prepared exercise LIKE A SAVAGE, and then the wheels had to come off at sight reading that I'm pretty sure was grade 4 1/2. ANYWAYS, I love ALL of YOU who motivated me! THANKS!
