Hi Nate,

My name is Matt LaRocca, and I'll be working with you for this Opus. Congrats on getting the first post up!

What is your inspiration for this piece? I like what you've got as a start, but it would help to know what's inspiring you. What do you want to write about?

I think you've got a good combination of instruments with the percussion and the trumpet and tuba. Were you thinking of adding another brass instrument? You don't need to, for sure, but it's up to you.

At this point, I would suggest to just keep going! Remember that in the key of C major, you can focus on C. Especially if you give it to the tuba and put a low C in there, it can be very helpful to establish the key.

Keep writing, and let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to see what you come up with next.
