Did this video help you?

Bubbie Herron: Someone just shared your HAPPY composition with me on Facebook. I had to track you down to Thankyou! Totally enjoyed it. Debbie in Scotland

AardvarkStrikeforce: Hey Chris, is it alright if I include improvisational solos (over a chord progression) in my compositions?

Theron J. Coleman: Can we take phrases from songs and change them up a bit and combine into a more original piece?

Irvin Mendez: I'm a little late to this competition, I'm also a tuba player who's never written any piece of music but would like to enter this competition and at least dip my toes into composing... Any tips?

Raul Ontiveros: Guys check out my composition! :)

Gunter Heisler: Any restrictions to the difficulty of the composition? I know I want to challenge you but I don't know what your limits are for what I have planned. Can you do multiple tounging at 200 beats per minute? Say I have a run chromatically of 32nd notes, could you handle it? Just wanna make it fun but appeasing to your ears but not impossible....but no promises! You will be shocked! :D

Hailey Bischoff: Is there a specific clef you would prefer? I know some of your sheet music is in tenor, but how comfortable are you with alto?

Bryce Stout: I have a few questions:

If we are going to submit more than one piece, should all the pieces be sent in one e-mail, or should they be sent separately?

If I'm not mistaken you've had a few drum parts played in your videos before. If I write a percussion part too will it be played?

Thanks a bunch! I've always enjoyed your performances, and as a composer myself this is an opportunity I can't afford to miss. You're awesome dude! Thanks! :D

Luca: what program should we use to write it in? musescore, finale, sibelius...?

Raul Ontiveros: Only trombones? no piano? bass? drums? strings?

iCraazy: Remember me you sent me an email wishing me happyday

jason dosanjh: is it only for trombone

Liron Koren: Are we allowed to make mashups?

Raul Ontiveros: Wow that's awesome! im so going to try this

Xpert Duck: Hey Christopher I have a question I play the trombone in the school band at my school and I'm In symphonic band 4 any tips for me to get better

PS3anoobbus96: I'm just a college freshman trumpet player, so I won't be writing anything. Not my thing,
But this sounds AWESOME! I'm excited!

Jacob Gusler: Just an idea for you. You should play the "Game of Thrones" theme. From what I have seen of your amazing abilities, that should not be hard.

Isaiah Butler: If we use MuseScore, can we send you a link to our music?

ThatPianoBoy: does it need to be troombone?

TristanMichael: Are we allowed to use things like hand claps in our composition similar to what you do in your videos or does it have to be %100 all natural trombone?

His_ Redeemed: I got the original modulock for Christmas back in 1989 when I was like 5. Me and my cousin Frank Fiora used to make all kinds of weird shapes out of him at our house at 26 West Ridley ave. in Norwood, Pa.
Mind Fiend: E "Oh no, I didn't mess up." LOL! _ I do like the look of those half slab furnaces, but am not fully sure of their point. _ Thank you for the tip about being able to use coagulated blood instead of a slime ball! That will be extremely helpful.
