comment Marimba Bars on a Vibraphone Frame
Marimba OR vibes, BOTH are expensive and it's not very common for a student to have a set at home unless they're VERY serious -- and usually have some parental support. +1 for going to school to practice -- I know of a guy who made an arrangement with the band teacher after he graduated to come in in the mornings and practice the school marimba for auditions. This is by far the most common way to practice at the high school level (and your band teacher will love you). Just organize your day so you can be at school when it's time to practice.

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.

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.
