Feedback on my newest work-in-progress?

 
Hello! I'm a self-taught composer, and this is my second full piece (I've written things like character themes for friends that I don't count as full pieces) and, although I've been working on it throughout the summer, I'm still unhappy with it. I'm looking for critiques and tips on how I can improve this piece.
Thanks!

Thank you all! be sure to watch for a summer original competition! :D

*I did average out a little bit the scoring of the scores, so some scores scored higher in caparison to others than what is written, but they all had some really great ideas!!*

I’m updating “Shorts for Trombone” and need suggestions for songs to add

You may have seen my “Shorts for Trombone.” It is by far my most popular score, probably because it pops up if you search  for a lot of popular music. It has not been updated in a while and I would like to add a whole bunch of new excerpts to it. If you have any suggestions, comment them below and I will add pretty much anything.  
I am also interested in creating versions of my shorts for concert pitch treble, Eb treble, F treble, and Bb treble, and a version in bass clef an octave lower than the current version so that more people can play my shorts. I am not pro, so those would be something you would have to ask for.

Here’s the score: https://musescore.com/user/2878026/scores/2800021
