Drumline Cadences

 Hello everyone,

I am currently looking for anyone who would be interested in having some drumline cadences written for their group/band. I have a fair amount of experience in writing for drumline and am looking for ways to further improve and refine my skills.

If anyone is interested let me know. I am willing to accommodate particular needs/requests and prepared to meet any possible deadlines (no charge). 

Thanks! :)

Timbre for con sordino F horn?

in Brass

Hi!  I seem to recall there used to be a way to specify/choose various muted brass timbres, but I'm having trouble relocating that info: am I misremembering?  (My present need is for an F-horn "con sordino," but I'd appreciate the general knowledge of either how to or where to find such timbre mods.)  Thanks!

Take a Listen to a drumline cadence I wrote recently!

 I'm currently 15 and a Junior in highschool and I've decided to share a couple of my cadences, here's the one I wrote most recently. Please take a listen and give me some feedback. I'm considering buying Musescore Pro but even the year plan is expensive... Do you think it's worth it for me to buy it and upload more? https://musescore.com/user/28637296/scores/5878662

Thoughts on show concept/Help writing it

Ok, so I had a great idea: In short, it's Minecraft. And before you disclose this as a joke, here's an unnecessarily detailed synopses: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1urSuPIWT1yy7EMyWyo81kFSazDWxkMVF2YMWjU9iJmk/edit?usp=sharing
I actually think this show idea has a lot of potential to be a fantastic show from a design standpoint, but the issue I'm having is that as a percussionist (with most experience on rudimental and battery percussion, much less with mallets) I can only write drumline music really well.
So give this a read if you want, let me know what you think and if you so decide, you can message me if you're interested in helping me design this show. Thanks!

Resistance Training

in Brass

Hello Fellow Brass Musicians,

I have been playing trumpet for a while now. My range goes all the way to double C and a Double B flat(Meaning a good tone on B Flat). As my range goes up, I noticed that my resistance is not as good (I loose my chops faster, and can only practice my music for an hour before I have to stop) I have tried loosening up and using more air to hit high notes but it still doesn't work. If any of you could help, I would appreciate it so much!
Thanks!
