DLB Show Requests

If you have a Drumline Battle team formed, let us know your team size and instrumentation as well as other special skills and equipment you might have e.g. electronics, mics. Someone here may select your group and write a custom show.

A few helpful items:
Do you need visuals and music, just music?
When do you anticipate starting rehearsals?
What skills can each section successfully achieve?

Landing Your First Arranging Gig

As I look at my personal goals for 2018, one item that doesn't have a clear path forward for me is to do some battery arrangements for marching bands.

While I have a fair amount of experience teaching HS students in-person, I don't have anything on my musical resume related to arranging.

What's the best way to get in touch will smaller bands - where I'd like to begin - and have the director feel confident that I can deliver quality parts at the appropriate difficulty level for their students?

Welcome to the Official Marching Percussion Group

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the MuseScore Official Marching Percussion Group (the very first MuseScore official group).

The purpose of this group is to not only share great sheet music, but for sharing knowledge, information and discussion about ANYTHING related to marching percussion.

ALL styles are welcome, in fact, the more the better - DCI, WGI, HBCU, Big 10, High School, Marching Band, Sports Drumlines, Military & Traditional, Pipe drumming, anything goes.

In addition to the general MuseScore Community Guidelines, there is only one other rule here - criticism is not only welcome, but encouraged, but keep in mind it is meant to help build each other up, not tear anyone down. Give advice how you'd wish to receive.

Have fun!

The Best of Laugh Silly Each Month Contest

I'd like to try something fun in my new role as co-administrator of Laugh Silly. Each Month, I will name the best laugh-inducing, silly composition submitted during the month, at least according to me and then post the winners here.
You are also welcome to nominate what you think are the best of the month, also.

August 2016......

musical chairs competition

here is an idea for a new competition
someone will start a composition with maybe 5-10 bars and then another person will continue it for another 5-10 measures, and then the next person and so on until the game will unexpectedly end (the music stops, in other words) and the last one to enter when the music stops (as determined randomly by the one running the competition) wins.
any takers or anyone want to start a piece?

What is your pit writing process?

Over in the discussion for one of my suggested new score templates (at https://musescore.org/en/node/111531), the question of what the usual writing process for pit parts is came up. If you have some perspective, I'd like to read it.
Also, I have two templates WGI that could also be the templates for pit parts if you're in a marching band that usually writes their pit parts separately.
