    Are you trying to make an Symphony, or do you want to start a Wind Band? Judging from your instrumentation it seems that it's a Wind Band. Anyway, I have 14+ years experience playing the bass (double bass/bass guitar) also, I have 10 years experience teaching band and orchestras and conducting and stage productions for orchestral pits.
