Musecorps Drum Corps Recording #1

Hello! Mark and I have finalized the brass parts for the ballad of our original show, 2 + 2 = 5. The ballad we've chosen is The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng, as we believe it fits the theme of the show - George Orwell's "1984" - perfectly.

If you are unfamiliar with the project, here is a quick summary:
Mark and I plan to have as many of you submit recordings of yourselves playing through the show as we can. We will then compile the recordings into one large file, and place it over virtual drill that Mark is writing, to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. If you'd like to record, here's all the info you'll need!

1.) Parts
You can play through as many parts as you'd like. In fact, we would much appreciate it if you did! (For example, if you play the trumpet, it will be better for the end result if you record and submit all three trumpet parts, rather than just doing one) Of course, you don't have to do this! Mark and I will be listening through each recording of the trumpet soloist's part, and picking the one we think would best benefit the overall recording.
2.) Recordings
We would prefer if you submit one large (3-ish minute) recording, but if you find it difficult to play through the part(s) in one sitting, please refer to the recording guide below!
Here is the link to all the parts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CTplR1RBHZX2YCJZ80M35VF20sjaPI9u?usp=sharing
3.) Recording Guide
Recording One: Beginning to Letter D
Recording Two: Letter D to Letter F (Trumpets, include two measure pick-up)
Recording Three: Letter F to Letter I
Recording Four: Letter I to the end

Again, we'd much prefer your recording be from the beginning to the end, to simplify our own work, but we decided to include this in case some need the breaks in between. Trumpets obviously don't need a recording one/four, as they don't play at these points. Please play the part at the exact tempo that's listed. This can easily be done by playing along with the recording (preferably while wearing a headset!).
4.) Submitting
If you have recorded the entirety of the ballad at once, submit an MP3/MP4 file with this name as the format:
Username_PartName_Full
If you used the segmented guide above, use this format:
Username_PartName_RecordingNumber

ex. TheMTCrew_Trombone1_Rec1
OR
markmacri_Mellophone1_Full

I need help arranging a piece

When i was 14 years old (8 years ago) I was messing with studio programs and I accidentally made a cool melody based off of streets of cairo. The problem is I do not have the skills to actually recreate it, and I really want to try and play it. I made it with a pitch bending synth because i was really into electronic music then. If anyone is willing to transpose something, Id be so happy. let me know if youd like to hear it, because I cant upload an audio file here.

Scales with a beat

  
I am the Owner of The Academy for Contemporary, Jazz & Gospel Music of Southern Africa. We offer graded examinations systems in Contemporary music in South Africa. We are currently exploring all options and we are looking for people that are willing to contribute towards the promoting of music in various forms. One of our needs is someone that is willing to do arrangements of standard scales for us in the following way: The scale(in not a standard way)  in one clef either Treble or Bass and a melody of a known music piece in the other clef so that the scale forms part of a unique music piece.
