Welcome to this Group!

In this group, all brass players will perform in an ensemble. We will not physically gather and play together. Instead, we will film ourselves and I will put all of the filmed videos together. It will look very cool!

UPDATE:
If you are interested in participating, reply to this discussion and tell me what instrument you play and how long you have been playing it.

Take a Listen to a drumline cadence I wrote recently!

I'm currently 15 and a Junior in highschool and I've decided to share a couple of my cadences, here's the one I wrote most recently. Please take a listen and give me some feedback. I'm considering buying Musescore Pro but even the year plan is expensive... Do you think it's worth it for me to buy it and upload more? https://musescore.com/user/28637296/scores/5878662  

Thoughts on this show idea?

So I had this idea for a show called "A Part". The show is about being apart, separated, from something but still being a part of that. In its essence, the show is about stars and how they are so lonely as individuals in the universe but they are a part of the universe, something much greater than themselves. This show theme is giving me really Blue Knights vibes and I just wanted your thoughts on if this could make a show. If anybody is interested I started writing some pit and soloist stuff that fits the theme really well, and if you want to take a shot at this theme I could send those over to you! Thanks for your thoughts, any comments are appreciated.

Thoughts on show concept/Help writing it

Ok, so I had a great idea: In short, it's Minecraft. And before you disclose this as a joke, here's an unnecessarily detailed synopses: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1urSuPIWT1yy7EMyWyo81kFSazDWxkMVF2YMWjU9iJmk/edit?usp=sharing
I actually think this show idea has a lot of potential to be a fantastic show from a design standpoint, but the issue I'm having is that as a percussionist (with most experience on rudimental and battery percussion, much less with mallets) I can only write drumline music really well.
So give this a read if you want, let me know what you think and if you so decide, you can message me if you're interested in helping me design this show. Thanks!

Old marching tenor patch?

I see it in mixer settings but it doesn't actually play anything... I liked the sound of the original tenor drum that was part of the drumlins plugin. Must I download that again to get the right sounds? The new tenor drum is just too plastic sounding and I prefer the fullness of the old ones. The same can be said for the "Old Marching Bass" which I would like to have as well. 

Now completely separate, I seem to be having trouble attaching a bracket to the single line snare drum. Any feedback, thanks. 

Sight Reading/Rhythm

in Trumpet

I've been playing the trumpet for 6 years now and whats letting down is my rhythm which is also making sight-reading difficult. Any advice on this would be much appreciated, as I'm thinking of signing up for the Royal Academy of Music once I've finishedI've my A-Levels in the UK. 
Cheers, Thomas.
