*gasp*

Does anyone have any tips for getting the most out of your air? I am just starting out on flute which I am already loving, but I run out of breath really quickly. It's probably because I go an octave higher by breathing harder even though I'm not really supposed to do that. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

Circular Breathing

So, I made it my goal to try and play Flight of the Bumblebee before my High school experience ends and I need help learning how to do circular breathing. I've seen videos as to how to do it and have been trying for a week with no progress. I'm only in Grade 10 at the moment and is halfway through semester 2. That means I've got more than two years to do this. Can anyone give me some tips? I've got my technique down for the flute and I think that I'm pretty decent--tone and tonguing wise. The only thing that needs work is breathing for me. I'd appreciate it if you could also give me some tips regarding my breathing. 
Thanks!

Wind ensembles accompanying a solo double bass

Hello dear woodwinds,

There are pieces for double bass and wind ensembles already, but they are rather difficult to listen to, so I've been arranging two pieces originally for double bass and piano; one of them to woodwind quintet, and the other one to concert band. I've been studying woodwinds a lot so I think I've made nice parts. Please have a listen:
