Violin Volume work

Hi, guys, i would like to advertise some of my Violin compositions, as a self taughted Violinist and composer, inspired mostly by Bach and Paganini, i would like you to criticise, comment but overall enjoy my music. I will upload (maybe endlessly till my dead) little violin pieces in "Violin Volume":

Cello Arrangement

Hello. New here. Just downloaded the basic programme and rummaging around I can't find what I need so perhaps someone could kindly help. 
My problem is, I have purchased sheet music for a singer which is all in Treble Clef. For me, as a cellist, it would be less hard work to play if it were rewritten and re-arranged in treble, tenor and bass clef. And here's the important bit: a mixture of those three clefs on the same page. I can't see a way of achieving this. Any ideas?

Tuba, which one? Which key?

in Brass

I'm not a brass player, I'm a violinist. I'm just writing for myself with MuseScore, trying to build my composition and orchestration skills. How do you decide which tuba to use in compositions? Wikipedia says that some tubas are more commonly used in UK, the other is more commonly used in US. If I ever have a real player to write for, then I'll write for that persons instrument. Until that happens, can you give me any suggestions, comments etc? (I posted one of my composition exercises , with a tube, to this group, it's the variations on Swanee river) Thanks.

What horn and what metal?

I was thinking about trying to get money to buy a new, professional horn, and I was wondering what kind of horns are the best. I know that the Berlin Phil plays on Alexander 103s, and they always seem to get good reviews, so I would definitely look at those, but I also know that there are other fantastic instruments and the Alexander might not be the best fit for me. Right now I play a Holton H179, and it works quite well for me, but I have college auditions next year and then college itself, and I think that a better horn would be beneficial.

I was looking online at alexander 103s, just for fun, and I saw that there are several different metals that they use. Each has its pros and cons, but I couldn't find which most people prefer.

If it helps at all, I prefer playing high horn (1st or 3rd).

Range?

Hello there! I was wondering about what everyone's range was. I am so self conscious that I have a tiny range. I also find that for big concerts where we play 10-12 pieces I can barely hit high notes at the end. I was looking for tips on how to expand range and build better endurance. Anything will help!
