Flute Sonata in Eb, need some feedback

If you haven't seen it yet, here is the link to my flute sonata:

I nicknamed it The Haydn Sonata because I am trying to get across a Haydnesque feel to it. I have noticed these things predominant in each composer of the Classical Period Trifecta:

  • Haydn: Humor, melodic and harmonic surprises
  • Mozart: Alberti bass, effortless grace
  • Beethoven: Sheer power, even when the melody is more lyrical

Haydn is the one who inspired me to write this flute sonata. I wrote the sonata exposition in just an hour and this is the first sonata for a duet that actually has a finished exposition.

There are quite a few surprises in my sonata exposition. Here they are:

Bar 5: Sudden entry of the flute and absence of the piano 
Bar 6: Sudden reentry of the piano 
Bar 10: Short diminuendo, like the theme isn't quite done yet 
Bar 11: Short staccato variant of the theme over a syncopated bass 
Bar 14: Sudden forte cadence, theme is now finished 
Bar 15: Piano dynamic in transition material right after a cadence at forte, sudden absence of the flute 
Bar 21: Forte dynamic when transition material is taken up an octave, flute comes back 
Bar 26: Piano dynamic yet again, descending trill motive 
Bar 41: Very busy texture as the repeat comes closer 
Bar 47: Sudden change in texture, sudden dynamic change as it repeats

I'm wondering, is my sonata exposition Haydnesque in its nature? I tried to get a Haydnesque feel to it by being more humorous than serious with the music. Anything impossible for the flutist? Does it feel like a Molto Allegro to you(tempo is at quarter note = 140 BPM)? Or should I just take the Molto off and just have Allegro as my tempo marking? 

Vibrato for Trumpet

in Brass

Hey all!
This one is mainly a question for high brass but if any other could help me that would be great. I'm in 11th grade and I am a 3rd year trumpet. Right now, we are focusing on marching songs, but after Football season, we mainly play concert songs. One of those is a pretty well known trumpet piece called "A Trumpeter's Lullaby". I normally am a second chair but my band director "surprised me" and gave me solo. I've played it before but never solo. Since I am doing the solo, should I use vibrato at the appropriate times? If so, what method should I use? I obviously wouldn't use the wind speed method. So I would either use my hand or move my jaw slightly. Which one should I use? Let me know!
