I have a song for a percussion chamber ensemble. I plan for it to be played live but need some opinions and advice on it first. Please comment and tell me what you think of the score and read the description to see what it's about. Please enjoy and I'll soon post a Expert-Level Mallet quartet.
Writing for strings can be a difficult process and there are so many variables whenever you delve into writing for string players. This strategy may help with some problems, but not all problems will be fixed automatically.
Use counterpoint to help add to your melodies. Keep in mind that you need to be acquainted with counterpoint and counterpoint isn't always easy. If you need help with counterpoint, I'll give you some advice.
- Whenever you have only one line [melody], use the following intervals: Unison, major/minor seconds, Major/minor thirds, Perfect fourths/fifths (watch out and don't use fifths more than once), Major/minor sixths, Octaves or perfect eights... Notice there aren't any Dissonant or augmented values [you're allowed to write them If you don't want strict counterpoint]!
- If you have two voices and want to make each voice singable, be sure to use the following intervals: Unison, Major/minor thirds, Perfect fifths [watch out for paralles] (fourths make it harder for your singers), Major/minor sixths, and Octaves/perfect eights... Notice there aren't any Dissonant or augmented values [you're allowed to write them If you don't want strict counterpoint]!
That's all you need to know. Start with writing for solo instead of a duet. After you learned a little more about counterpoint from that; Write one (more) solo for viola. Afterwards, write a duet piece for any 2 string instruments; Follow the advice for singable voices.
NOTE: THIS ISN'T ALL THERE IS TO COUNTERPOINT IF YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE, GO TO THIS VIDEO SERIES ON YOUTUBE: https://youtu.be/JcqrGLvs95M?list=PLA660D90FB432BD69. TURN UP YOUR VOLUME CAUSE IT'S A BIT SILENT.

Thanks again
Ok, so I know that this is a marching band group and some of you are going to hate me for this, but I am legit desperate for help on a concert band arrangement.
I'm writing a piece for concert band (it's an eighth grade band, so the music isn't too complex). It's an arrangement of music from the album Adele 21.
We have 3 percussionists, and I only have 2 percussion parts written: xylophone and drumset (One of our percussionists has been playing drumset for a long time and I wanted to write a piece that could showcase that). I really need another percussion part, but as I've never played percussion, I am not exactly knowledgeable in this field. Does anyone have any tips for adding another percussion part in a concert band piece?
(Again, don't hate me for posting this on a marching band group)
I am writing a marching band show and i need an arranger to write quality pit and battery parts. Contact me if interested.
So next year will be my senior year of high school and I'd like to compile the big pit moments from each of the past three shows that I have performed into a sort of lot piece. I have been trying to figure out a good way to do it, but I've been unsuccessful so far. If anybody would be interested in helping me out, please let me know. I really want to surprise my section with something like this.

About a year ago I was playing percussion in my school's production of My Fair Lady. I don't remember which song this was in, but at one point the percussion score-- and I believe it was only the percussion score-- had the marking "fake time". I have not seen this marking anywhere else, and no one, not even google, seems to know what it means (When I asked my director what it meant, he said "you're a percussionist, it's what you've been doing this whole time. Music directors are mean...) To me, it seems like it would be synonymous with "free time", but that seems like an odd thing to have in one part of a theatrical score. Has anyone on here seen this marking before? If so, how was it interpreted? If not, how would you interpret it?
Does anyone know how to get the suspended cymbal sound in musescore.
Im currently writing a show and i need a percussion arranger to write quality pit and battery parts for the show. Message me if interested.
Man, I have got to be the worst admin in the world, going AWOL for months and months. Probably should put a few other admins on this page in the case of my absence.
But man, never thought this group would have more than 50 people in it. Next thing I know, there's over 100 people, then 200, and I'm like, wow.
But enough of that, I wanted to ask you all a question. I see quite a few Copy/Paste arrangements on this site, and I've always made it a point that whenever I make some kind of arrangement, I add my own little thing to it, a signature if you will. And it got me wondering if anyone else does that kind of thing.
Personally I love adding in chimes, bells, vibes, and any other metals I can add to make things spark a bit more. I also like to increase the speed of playing of several things I write, but I'll also slow things down quite a bit as well.
Is there any kind of style you all use? Or do you aim to keep things as close to the original as you can get?
Put simply, I'm kinda bored, and I want to write out some percussion parts. However, I have no shows to write for! So, does anybody have a show that they'd like me to help arrange percussion parts (both pit and battery) for?
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.
I am currently arranging some pop music. I have some questions for anyone that would be willing to help an amateur:
1. In pop music, sometimes artists embellish a little with vocals and etc. Is it better to use complex rhythms to come close to what the artist does, insert an simpler rhythm, or change it all together?
2. In giving out the melody parts, I don't really want to give it to the trumpets every time because they always get it, and the flutes are usually really hard to hear? What other options do I have that will actually sound good? I know that just about every instrument can play melody, but I also know that if not executed correctly it could be a disaster.
3. Does anyone have any suggestions for songs that I could do?
