Hello FHP, can someone tell me how they best build their stamina when playing? I find myself commonly running out of energy to play, and can't play so high for that session after having played long or high. How do I make my playing sessions last longer without me losing range so quickly?
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!
Hi, I´m bored because I always playing the same songs, please recommend me interesting and medium level songs.
if you are a drill writer please message me i have a 2 minute indoor drum show id like to add drill too.
There is debate in the Bodhrán community, as to whether the playing should be written down or not. No Bodhrán player I know plays a tune the same way twice, and it is very much playing with the feel of the music.
Having said that, when I first started Bodhrán drumming I found it useful to have a guide as to what to do, so adding Bodhrán to MuseScore may help beginners. Also it would be useful to have the drumming added to a Tin Whistle score, for example, which gives a feel for what the two instruments will sound together.
However if you are dead set against Bodhrán notation, then I understand :-)
Hi, it's my first time dealing with a brass band, so i'll really appreciate any feedback (long or short) for it!
I get stuck mostly when writing front ensemble and it usually happens with keyboard instruments whether that's finding a rhythm or a groove or trying to blend with battery or building for an impact. Any tips?
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
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.
I just installed MDL 1.2.1, but what are the changes in this version from the previous version?

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:

Hi! I've looked through Musescore and found that there are only a few 4 octave solo pieces for the marimba. Could anyone recommend some to me? Thanks a lot!!!
Can you think of any 32 bar/16 bar phrase for trumpet that would sound great in a band?
Hey, I just recently wrote a brass quintet and would love some feedback on it. This is 100% original. Thanks!
I have been looking every where for about 1 month and I still can't find one. The only one I could find was a Bb Trumpet version and I have no clue if I can just transpose it into French Horn sheet music. If anyone knows if there is one and if they have a link I will be grateful if you send it to me. Thank You.
Last Monday we did another #MusescoreMonday release.
This time a drum feature used in a Marchingband show, that we also did the choreography for.
Check it out:
We'd love to hear what you think of it.
I need drumline/frontline writers for a DCI style show that i'm putting together. Message me if interested. Thanks!
