Would anyone have the time to arrange a song for me and my band? Possibly where I could get the score and all the parts as well? I want to get the SU arrangement of Understanding, when they played it for the Bayou Classic last weekend.
we have been member of the MuseScore family for a while and are gonna add some cool licks and compositions.
We will add them to this group too, so check them out and let us know what you think of them!
Our goal is to #ShareTheTradition of rudimental drumming; traditional and modern.
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.

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
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.
Welcome to my new group. Any ideas or if you need any help please ask.
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

Hello! Mark and I have finalized the brass parts for the ballad of our original show, 2 + 2 = 5. The ballad we've chosen is The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng, as we believe it fits the theme of the show - George Orwell's "1984" - perfectly.
If you are unfamiliar with the project, here is a quick summary:
Mark and I plan to have as many of you submit recordings of yourselves playing through the show as we can. We will then compile the recordings into one large file, and place it over virtual drill that Mark is writing, to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. If you'd like to record, here's all the info you'll need!
You can play through as many parts as you'd like. In fact, we would much appreciate it if you did! (For example, if you play the trumpet, it will be better for the end result if you record and submit all three trumpet parts, rather than just doing one) Of course, you don't have to do this! Mark and I will be listening through each recording of the trumpet soloist's part, and picking the one we think would best benefit the overall recording.
We would prefer if you submit one large (3-ish minute) recording, but if you find it difficult to play through the part(s) in one sitting, please refer to the recording guide below!
Here is the link to all the parts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CTplR1RBHZX2YCJZ80M35VF20sjaPI9u?usp=sharing
3.) Recording Guide
Recording One: Beginning to Letter D
Recording Two: Letter D to Letter F (Trumpets, include two measure pick-up)
Recording Three: Letter F to Letter I
Recording Four: Letter I to the end
Again, we'd much prefer your recording be from the beginning to the end, to simplify our own work, but we decided to include this in case some need the breaks in between. Trumpets obviously don't need a recording one/four, as they don't play at these points. Please play the part at the exact tempo that's listed. This can easily be done by playing along with the recording (preferably while wearing a headset!).
If you have recorded the entirety of the ballad at once, submit an MP3/MP4 file with this name as the format:
If you used the segmented guide above, use this format:

Will we ever see sticking notation for unpitched percussion in the future, similar to what VDL + Finale/Sibelius offers?
I’m talking about text that usually reads R/L that affects playback. This could be useful for those looking to create realistic sound files for whatever purpose.
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)
Do I need to learn Stevens grip for drum corps (namely Columbians)?
Planning on transcribing my part in a song (and possible solo) into Musescore
Hello, I've been having a recurring idea about an opening of a show that uses the song "Pure Imagination" for marching band and I want to know if anyone had ideas for a trumpet duo or a trumpet and alto sax duo for a show before a big hit. I wanted to have a big hit after the lyrics "there's nothing to it"
EDIT: We're looking for recordings of the ballad! Here's the link for more info! https://musescore.com/groups/musecorps/discuss/5027254
Hello everyone! My friend Mark and I have been working on a show for fun. It is based off of the novel 1984, and will likely be completed within the next month.
If enough people sign up, we hope to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. Basically, by this, we plan to have as many people record themselves playing though the parts as we can get, then compile the parts together into one big audio file. Mark is working on writing drill in a program.
All I'm hoping for with this specific thread is to see how many people would be interested in hearing more about this idea. Lemme know if you'd want to play in it below, and ask any questions that you may have! I'll make a bigger post in the near future with specifics.
If you haven't seen the score yet, here's a link: https://musescore.com/themtcrew/scores/5217400
Thanks guys! If you want/can, let any friends that you think would be interested know about this. We hope to get as many brass players as we can, and will take any percussion recordings if we can find them! To be clear, we're not looking for recording yet, as the show isn't completed. Just wanted to see how many would be interested!
If there is anyone who would like to send music to me to put in this group, that would be greatly appreciated!
