Synchronize YouTube Videos with Scores

Not sure how many of you know about the MuseScore feature where you can synchronize a YouTube video with a score, but thought it could be pretty cool to sync up some videos.

Here is an example of a synchronized score: https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/drum-corp

This could take the concept of Vic Firth's "Learn the Music" to the next level. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCq9eCicq8HmD80vSyIbp8w

Percussion rewrite on my piece.

I was wondering if there are any experienced percussionist who could rewrite drumline and frontline in my dci composition. You can find the piece on my profile to see if it is somerhing that you would like to work on. Feel free to add or take away as many percussion parts as youd like. Please use the MDL snare, tenor, and bass. Message me and ill send you the file and we can work together!

Does anyone have a ballad suggestion?

SO

I have had this project in the works, and have all the pieces lined up, except for a ballad, because I cannot find a ballad piece that fits the theme of this project. I will provide a link and the piece selection below for you to look up/listen to.

Theme Idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpU_yjsGkHs

Repertoire:
ThE sMiLeR - Kübler, Wunsch, Krause, de Moura, and Heidicke
In the Hall of the Mountain King - Edvard Greig
Bird & Bela in Bb (1st Movement) - Don Sebesky
Asphalt Cocktail - John Mackey
**INSERT BALLAD HERE**
ThE sMiLeR Reprise
Dense - Univers Zero

And no, am not trying to make a Bluecoats show, even though it looks like it. These are just the best pieces that fit with this theme.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Need brass writers to help compose a marching band show!

Not too serious about this, but I'd like to make a 3 part show that's medium difficulty and fun to play, and I need help. I'm a percussion writer, and I'd like to bring a few other people on board with this. DM me on insta if you're interested @mvlchandani 

(If I do get 3 or 4 people on board and are serious about this and we actually write a good show, I have connections and I could get Box-Six to buy the show from us)

Adding Percussion instruments to another part

In my case I would like to have the Woodblocks in the Drum Part of my masterpiece. The reason is, that they should come rarely in some Fill ins and could be played by the Drummer himself.
Or in another case it would be nice, if I could have a Percussion part with Tambourine, Cow Bell, Bongos and Woodblocks.

Is this possible? And does someone know, how it could be possible?
