Exactly as the title implies, I’d like for people to bounce their ideas for marching band shows off of me. I’m a high school junior trained in percussion and various string instruments, and have a private teacher actively teaching me theory. It won’t be overnight, but I plan to write something like a show for my school’s marching band before my time there is done.
I'm a marching percussion arranger (with an emphasis in front ensemble) who's open to writing for field shows. As of now I do it purely for free as a pastime, so if you would like to collaborate then message me! :)
I am currently writing a show right now. (Just for fun) I'm finished with the first two movements and would appreciate if someone wanted to write a percussion book for it! Message me for details.
I need another fellow brass writer and a front ensemble writer! Please comment if your interested!!
Pieces for the show:
Music of the Spheres - Phillip Sparke
Year of the Dragon - Phillip Sparke
Mother Earth Fanfare - David Maslanka
Requim for Band - Quincy Hilliard
Heres the youtube playlist if you want to listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq7z0FMFwVM&list=PLC_aQpeaEdbrCNJMuqzpz_L2Ski6eOKcp&index=1
Please help me and a friend out! Thanks!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTpGF6otM1Q It's called Breadfan and our band loves the song so much that our band teacher, he errrr banned (or band, if i wanted to be punny) the song. So he took away the song from us and we don't have the music for it. Some of the best players remember it, but most forgot. So it would be appreciated if someone could bring our lovely breadfan back to us so we can be happy yet again because we hate our band teacher and vice versa and we want our breadfan back.
I'm looking for some good source music for a marching show that I'm going to be starting here pretty soon. If you have any ideas please contact me. If you want to help or join my team that would be great as well. It's a plus if you live in Central Texas (Austin) so that we can collab pretty often and closely.
I already have ideas for my show starting with:
- Either a 3 or 4 movement show
Some pieces I'm thinking of using come from the following composers:
- David R. Gillingham
- Gustav Holst
- David Beidenbender
- Alan Hovhaness
- Ivan Trevino
Just curious how many of y’all are getting ready for drum corps auditions? Or if you’ve already auditioned how’d it go? Where are you going to march? Maybe we can meet up over the summer (probably not but you never know)
I’ll be on the road once again with the Blue Devils for my age out
2018 is turning out to be a pretty amazing year. So many groups are SO SO good!
Who are your favorites so far this season?
Who do you think is most improved this year compared to last?
Do I need to learn Stevens grip for drum corps (namely Columbians)?
Looking for a percussion writer who would want to contribute to a collaboration piece. Not looking for anything super serious just someone to write some cool battery and front parts for one of the pieces I've written.
So, I can't write music and the mellophone section wants a fanfare. Can someone write on for me? BTW there's two of us.
Just a reminder that if you're planning on submitting something for the competition, the deadline is tomorrow. A lot of you have commented, but nobody has submitted yet. Is anyone planning on submitting something? And if so, should I push the deadline back by a few days?
Thanks for any feedback!
Hello everyone! The 2018 Drum Corps season is over, and I figured it was time for me to start this group up again. Therefore, I've decided to hold the first competition that I talked about in this groups' other post!
This first competition is basically a test. It's just for fun, you could say. If enough people participate, I'll hold another one in the future, and possibly include some level of prizes. Just depends on how many people participate!
I thought we'd start off easy. Create a drum corps style arrangement from any piece (s) written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The arrangement should be longer than one minute in length, but no more than three. You can include percussion if you want, but just brass would be alright too! When you have something completed, post it to MuseScore and post a link to it in a comment on this post. I'll live submissions open until a week from today, Tuesday 9/18 at around 2:00 PM EST.
If you have any comments or questions, leave them below!
Would anybody be willing to transcribe Blue Devils 1996 "Club Blue" A Gangsters Chronicle?
Hello, I am in need of a brass writer and pit writer for an original drum corps show! Comment to get more information
I understand the basics of MIDI, but I need an example of someone else's setup that they got to work. Because I CANNOT figure it out.
