comment How do you write an instrumental part for a choir?
I would probably group flutes with violin since those are the quietest instruments. Baritone horn and trumpet are the loudest as your brass, and cello can be grouped since it plays in a similar range as baritone (but I'm not sure about this at the primary school level). Xylophones could be grouped with the treble instruments with soft mallets, or might be a separate group with the percussion. You didn't say who was playing piano, but I don't know what I would do if it wasn't the complete background part.

Exactly! Thanks for pointing out the typo -- and another one. My fingers wanted to count by twos!

comment How should tuba valve springs of different size be reassembled?
Are they just uncompressed to different lengths? Or does it appear that they were manufactured in different sizes? It could be that the valves you use most often have compressed those springs according to wear. I've never seen this, but my other guess would be that the springs would be ordered shortest to longest for valves 2-1-3 -- allowing for more spring tension to be used on valves that have a longer amount of tubing. I've had problems with valve instruments where valves would stick only when there was airflow, and I believe a stronger spring matched with the longer airways would help.

comment Circle of fourths in Jazz
@NeilMeyer There are countless chord progressions used in "standards"; the 4ths progressions are just a primary element. It's not to say that every chord change is a 4th away from a previous one. You can look in any Real Book for hundreds of examples.

Why not transpose the whole song down until it's within the singer's range?
