Looking To Write Battery Parts For Practice

Hey everyone and anyone!
I'm looking to write some battery parts for practice.
Whether it be for a Marching Show or Indoor Show, I want to get better as a composer.
I can send you the end result of what I wrote if you want, but this is more of a personal thing.
Anything you send me will be kept personal and will not be reuploaded or shown to anyone else.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day/night! ☺

Notable Suggestion- Respite by David Reeves

I'm in one of the first ensembles to play the piece, and if you can get your hands on it, you need to play it. It's a very Clarinet-heavy work, with an Oboe Solo (Clarinets play a second, hidden part, so I don't know if it's a solo), A trumpet solo, a Flute solo, and a Sax Quartet. Music for a gentler time indeed...

It might not be released yet, just look for the Clinton High School Wind Ensemble's performance of it in March. It may be released, I don't know. Just keep a look out.

(If I'm way to active, let me know)

The Sky ISN'T the Limit.. Your Mindset Is

Wassup y'all.. This is a just message to all the arrangers in this group no matter what age, race or gender. I just wanted to remind you to keep grinding & improving. There's always going to be room for improvement, no matter how "good" or "bad" you are at what you do. Even though I may not know most of you we all have one thing in common: a love for music. It's amazing how much love we all share for music because music can literally change lives.. it changed mine. Before music I felt like I didn't have a purpose. I'd join clubs and play sports but I never truly felt at home. This was until I joined band my 8th grade year & my life began to change for the better. Since then I knew that music is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, particularly band. I've grown a lot over the past years playing wise and arranging wise & I'm even drum major now for my high school. But saying all this to say, never give up on your dreams despite all the negative encounters that may come your way. I believe everyone has a purpose in this world & ours is to make the world a better place through MUSIC. Sounds corny but that's just what I truly believe & I'm positive that all of you are gonna be something in the future. Keep up the good work man & always remember that the sky ISN'T the limit, but your mindset is. Stay blessed family.
