Any Ideas?

Im  a multi instrumentalist (woodwind, brass, pizzicato strings, keyboards) but my main instrument is trombone and i am a jazz trombonist. I am looking for a good song  to arrange with trombone as melody, piano, drums, bass, maybe guitar, maybe vibes. Any good ideas? The O.G. song doesn't have to have a trombone

I need some help and/or advice.

My mom says I'm going to have to play the Contro Alto Bass Clarinet in December. I just started playing the B flat clarinet in August or September of 2017, do you guys think I SHOULD skip the bass clarinet and start playing a 5 foot Contro Alto Bass clarinet so soon like that? Especially since I'm barely intermediate level on the B flat clarinet AND been playing the B flat clarinet for barely a year now! She says it will help get me a scholarship for college if I play it cause not many people play the Contro Alto bass clarinet.

Hello Everyone!

This topic is about flutes. well duh. Flutes are great. So what flutes do you play or love or own or yeah!

I play PVC kontrabass flute. I made it! I love the deep haunting sound of the bass flute. I don't have much money, but when I do get enough, I will buy myself a bass flute. First, though, I have to buy myself a new french horn for band next year.

What do you play or own or love?

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.

Anglican chant

My wife is an Anglican church musician. For chant, she wants a staff with no time signature and no bar lines, and she wants notes with  no stems. I can remove stems, but only one by one, and the same for bar lines...that's pretty tedious. And there is no way to do without a time signature at all, that I can find. Anybody have any ideas how to do this? Thx.
