Suggestions?

in Piano

Hi all,
I am currently practicing for a busking competition later on, and am working with a few friends to come up woth something. We have found a few pieces but just want one more, something to blow people's minds.
We are a trio, I am playing piano, a friend is singing and another playing guitar/ukulele. We dont want to do anything too hard because we need it perfect by the competition.
TIA

Congratulations! I personally really loved this song. It totally matched the adventurous feeling of the story you included. And the percussion is outstanding! I’m deeply impressed. Congrats on winning not only the February challenge, but the FIRST official music challenge of Jay and John’s challenges! Quite the historic event for this group! Well done, we hope to see you continue to do great things!

WOW! Just WOW! I was blown away by your score! The adventurous feeling you somehow perfectly captured was breath taking! Not too much, but not to little. Congratulations! And I'm looking forward to seeing more from you.

Soundfont not working when uploaded

in Piano

Hi,
I was trying out some soundfonts the other day, and I found that they improve the playback a lot. So I tried uploading a score I finished and added a soundfont to it (HQ orchestral 3.0). The soundfont worked while I was editing the score in musescore, but when I uploaded it, it was the stock musescore playback again. Is there anything else I need to do before or after uploading the score?
Thanks in advance

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! 

RULES (Must Be Read Before Sign Up)!

Thanks for joining! If you're thinking of competing in this awesome group, there a few rules that must be announced before you sign up. 

1. No plagiarism! (No exceptions and will be removed).

2. No foul language (of any kind, includes bullying and offensive language otherwise you will be removed).

3. Must sign in first. If you compete without signing in, it makes things harder for Jay and me to ref.

4. Scores must be added to this group once completed so that we can have easy access to them.

5. NO randomly entering scores in if you haven't signed in! This will result in the unfortunate removal of the member and the score added. It makes things very hard and disorganized for us Admins.

6. Have a good time!!! :D

If you agree to these terms then type a "Y" if you agree, or an "N" if you don't agree. If you don't agree, unfortunately you will have to be removed. (These rules apply to those cheering on contestants as well). Doing this helps keep things organized and easier for Jay and me to keep things in check, and ready for a fun and friendly competition. Phew! Thanks everyone!
