Clefs reading practice

Hello, 6th year trombonist here, I was looking around for any sheet music that has all 12 major scales in Tenor or Treble clef, because I'm starting to get more and more music with these clefs as part of my repertoire, so could anybody help me find something of the sort? Thank you all so much for choosing to play trombone! (Helping me is secondary, the main point is that you all are cool for choosing the best instrument :3)

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.

Help on Ballad

in Brass

I am looking for help on a Bruno Mars ballad that may or may not be marched for a high school band. I've gotten all lot of the structure down I just need help with details! I'm a percussionist so it's pretty difficult lol I'm having someone help write the mallet parts and I'll probably do the battery but I just need help with a lot of the winds. Much love :)

If you could have any trombone in the world...

Hey fellow trombonists.
Many of you may not know this, but while you may play tenor or bass trombone there are tons of other types. So out of any style of trombone ever what would you put on your wish list. For me it's the Buccin, a trombone only ever used in France from 1810-1845 that has a Sousaphone like bell with a dragon's head on the end. The thing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Buccin_yeo_01.jpg) is one of the coolest looking instruments I've ever seen!
So what do you guys think?

I need this

My friends (which is our band's trombone section) have been pressuring me to get the sheet music for Ultra Dragon Dream Feet for a while now because they know I usually bring cool sheet music to school. All I ask for it someone to PLEASE make the song for trombone, Preferably a solo so we all can play the same thing. If you need a reference here is the original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLYhnBaWOzc
Thank you if you do decide to make it :D
