Indoor Percussion

 Hey, guys! I'm new here and have been recently writing an indoor percussion piece (I've only written front ensemble) and I need someone to write battery for it. I need a snare, 5 drum tenor/quintet quads, and 5 bass drums. Whoever is willing to do it must be able to stick to a schedule. I will credit you and allow you to post, but if you claim you wrote everything yourself, I WILL report you.
Thank You!

The string instrument doctor

Hi there fellow string instrument players,

Outside of transcription and arranging for orchestra and occasionally smaller ensembles I am also a professional violin maker and restorer.
And for that reason, I am willing to try and answer every question on the subject of violins, violas, cellos and contrabasses in regard of construction, acoustics and history.

Questions can go from: 'How best to clean my violin' to 'What's so special about old instruments and especially those by Stradivarius'.

Please take note that my mother tongue isn't english, I'll always try to utilize the correct terms and words but mistakes are bound to be made!

2112

Hey, I was wondering if anybody has found a very good "FULL SHOW" based on the song 2112, if not I was maybe thinking of trying to make one. I know that there is one by some college band that is pretty good but it is only like a 3 min show and I was looking for like a full, and well done, HS or DCI show. If I end up making a show based off of this, please also let me know if you'd be interested in helping me :) THX fellow DCI lovers!

Help With Arrangement

I'm trying to arrange a string quartet cover of Bird Set Free by Sia and I have most of it done. I just need help with some of the parts where, in the song, Sia is just riffing and singing kind of free in the background. Her doing that makes it really dramatic and highlights the climax which is why I want to try and imitate it. But I can't figure out the notes or how to write it (the rhythms, ornamentations, etc.). So if anyone would be interested in helping me out I'd really appreciate it! Just let me know and I'll send you the piece.

Hey There

If you're just stopping by for the first time, welcome! What you're likely to find here is exactly what the group's title is, everything marimba. If you're not a percussionist you're still welcome to stick around, but you may not fit in as well as some of the other people. So if you made it this far into this paragraph I'm sure you'd love being in this group, so go ahead and join us, check out some mallet pieces, and maybe even submit some of your own. :)
