Hey, I'm 14 and I'm in a dixieland band from my middle school (i'm in hs now but we split off and went to different schools, so i say "from my middle school"). I play the trombone AND bass, just so you know, but in the band I play trombone. I was considering composing a simple yet fun piece of music for our four piece band. (Trombone, Trumpet, Saxophone, Clarinet)... (our tuba player left, current getting a barry saxophone for and addition). I am sure some of you have composed pieces before and was wondering if you could help me. Practice is in two days (12/3)... we got a paying gig also (finally) on 12/16/00. Maybe I could meet any of you (I live in Raleigh, NC). Any help would be appreciated with the composition of an original song (w/out lyrics, by the way). I know this sounds like an advertisement but I don't mean it to be. Thanks.
