New Group

If anyone is interested, I recently created a new group called Percussion Solo and Duet Repertoire. I want the group to store as much percussion repertoire as possible that only requires on or two players to perform. This can also includes pieces that feature a percussion soloist (Ex: Bob Becker's Bye Bye Medley and Emmanuel Sejourne's Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra). Here's the link if anyone is interested in joining:

simple music notation system

 2. Most people have problems in     learning and playing music in the classical notation because of musical   notes dyslexia . 
3. Thats why many ( young ) people who are very interested in making music and start with music at home or on a musical school, often stop after a few weeks because learning of the classical notation is to hard for them and it takes to long before they  really can make music on f.i on a piano. So they give up and thtas a pity
4. A few years a go when i retired i  started  in trying to learn and making  music on a piano in the classical notation.
5. I can now ( after a lot of hard  study) read the classic music notation although it is still very difficult for me and i have to read every note one by one.
6. But I still arent ablle to read and  play it on my piano the same time
7. Then i got knowledge of the klavarscribo  notation systeem
8. see youtube

10. or

https://www.klavarvereniging.nl
12. You only have to register to get  acces to a lot of translated klavarscribo music and lessons
13. Here you can download piano lessons  in klavarscribo and a lot of klavarscribo music
14. It is a very easy to learn music notation  and one can make and read ( simple) music on a piano within a few houres music.
15. I am very very enthousiastic about  klavar because  i am convinced and  this would help a lot of people to play the piano or organ.

16. I also started translating music   from classical notation to Klavar notation on my computer
17. I translate music notated in the  classical way :
18. -by first importing a pdf into  musescore
19. -and correct then all the reading  and importing mistakes note by note in musescore so that i have a clean and  clear musescore.msz file
20. -Then a do an export to a musicxml     file
21. -This file I import into     klavarscript , a tiny klavar notation software program.
22. This superb little program , made in  the past by one person ( Marco van de Kolk) isnt supported any more by him.
23. Also it takes a lot of work because  importing a  xml file into klavarscribo gives mostly a corrupted file so you  have to check and correct many things in klavarscribo

24. I wonder if it is possible:
- to use the musescore software.
- to write/make a perfect and clean musescore  file
- Convert this musescore  directly into a PDF with the Klavarscribo page vieuw.
25. I ask this because there is a great  communty of programming experts on the musescore website.
26. If you need further information and are interested please dont   hesitate to contact me.
27. with kind regards,

DLB Rules Overview

Hey Folks,

As you think about Writing for DrumLine Battle, there's a few rules you'll want to keep in mind:

1. Basically Any Instrument is OK as long as you can carry it on and carry it off. No 23 Octave Marimbas on wheels. 

2. There are restrictions on power sources, but guitars and basses with Amps can be used.

3. The performance time needs to be between 90 seconds and 120 seconds. (min half to two minutes).

So, get creative and let's get some music written!
