I'm not sure how much help I will be as I am not a drummer per se, but I will help in any way I can! :D
Hello! I am currently the leader of a handbell group at my university and I’m looking for songs to arrange that could spark more interest for handbells.
If anyone had any ideas please let me know, thanks!

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.

I've never actually been in a choir, oddly enough
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!
Can you recommend me some pieces for viola to play alone? Maybe J.S.Bach (please don't say Prelude suite nº1) something short, about two pages, not much difficult... I hope you found something for me! Thank you! <3

Hey! I just joined this group because I hoped I could find people who loved mallet percussion as much as I do. I just added six of my pieces I've made to the group and hoped I could get some feedback on them. Thank you and I hope to be able to help future composers and mallet percussionists! :D
Hi guys I am a intermediate flute player, please give some seggestions for sight reading peices! Thanks!
I'm a bassoon player and composer who would appreciate advice on writing for strings. Please comment some general rules and techniques for string composition. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys! This is a new ensemble I created a few days ago and we have a serious woodwind deficit as of now... we have three total woodwind players, compared to 7 violins and 14 synths.
I've posted this in a few other MuseScore groups in hopes of attracting a bit more attention to it, and it's worked so far! Here's the rest of the original post.
I'm creating an online orchestra dedicated to performing the works of young composers and putting the videos on YouTube. In the process, composers will get feedback from performers, performers will get more experience playing in different settings, and both will form connections that will be extremely useful (hopefully) in the music industry long-term! It's also a great chance for publicity.
Currently, I'm looking for performers, composers, and editors alike willing to help make this happen.
If you want to join, here's a link to a Discord server dedicated to making this happen!
In anticipation of a few questions, here's an FAQ.
How will you coordinate this?
Our current plan is to have one major piece every two months. Pieces will be member-submitted and member-selected. Parts, an MP3 of the piece being performed by synth instruments, and a metronome MP3 will be sent out. Members will have these two months to work up their part(s) and record themselves playing in time with the metronome that was sent. All members will submit their parts to an official email for the orchestra, which will be made at a later date. Editors will then take over and edit the tracks together.
It will then be posted to an official YCOO YouTube channel with credits to the composer and performers in the description.
What instruments can join?
Currently, standard orchestra and wind ensemble instruments. Non-standard instruments may be accepted, but should not expect a part in every major piece. Right now, we especially need woodwinds, specifically on flute/picc, saxophone, clarinet, and bassoon. We'd also love more low strings, like string bass and cello. But we won't turn you away if you already play an instrument we have lots of. The more, the merrier!
What kind of music will be played?
Orchestral music, wind ensemble music, chamber music, solos. We currently plan to only do original music by young composers but may be open to doing covers once the group has been established.
Chamber music and solos? How will that work?
While the major projects will happen every other month, members will be allowed to arrange small ensembles. Chamber ensembles and solos will be entirely member-run: members will choose a piece, form a small ensemble, send out parts on their own, come up with their own deadlines, and edit the audio and video on their own. Only when the product is complete will it be sent up to us admins to publish it on the YouTube channel.
Is there an audition required?
No. However, if you submit a track of low quality, it may not be used. (Low quality can be defined as: badly out of tune, very bad audio quality, not with the metronome, or played with a bunch of mistakes.)
Video? Will we have to submit videos of ourselves?
No. Submitting videos of yourself playing is entirely optional.
Do you have to play in every major piece?
Nope. We won't kick you out for inactivity.
If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer! In case you don't want to scroll back up, here's that link again.
Here's a link if you're interested but can't join the Discord so we can still get your information.
I have almost a whole show written with no percussion. My background is in mostly wind arranging so a percussion arranger would be amazing! Thanks!
I really would love some feed back on these two original compositions. Please let me know if I can do anything to make these better. The pieces arn't really that hard, but if there is something as is odd, please point it out.
Thanks in advance!
here is one of my works
please give me your thoughts.
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.
