Christmas Show Mvt 1

In need of a writer for Battery and Pit percussion for my currently unnamed Christmas show. The first movement is pretty much complete. The first movement features Carol of the Bells and a small portion of We Wish You a Merry Christmas, as that is foreshadowing the theme of the finale. It is majorly in 3/4, with the last section being in 4/4. There is two drum breaks in the opener, one being right after the hit, and after the runs in section C. If interested, please let me know!

MuseScore Drum Corps Event

Hey! I just read that MuseScore is hosting an event in which people can submit arrangements for drum corps for a chance to win prizes. I just have some questions.
How long should the arrangement be?
Are all instruments supported by DCI supported for the event? (french horn, euphonium, etc)
Does the piece have to be an arrangement? Or can it be original?
Thank you!

Matching Wind Arrangers with Percussion Arrangers

It seems one of the most common themes in this thread are wind arrangers looking to collab with percussion arrangers. Let's get you hooked up!

Anyone looking to collaborate with other users to write battery or front ensemble parts, I suggest that you join the official Marching Percussion group and post a request in this discussion there - https://musescore.com/groups/4833679/discuss/4845310

MuseScore + Drum Corps

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to post a quick note and to say hello. I have recently joined the MuseScore team and you will certainly see me around jumping into discussions here and there and answering any questions you guys might have.

I wanted to make a specific point of dropping in this group and getting to know you guys and seeing how I might be able to support and see if we can spread the word to other drum corps fans and make this group the top resource out there for all things drum corps.

I've been a drum corps fan since I was a kid. I went to my first show when I was 12 and was instantly hooked. I was lucky enough to go on to march, even though my main instrument is bassoon. I first auditioned for SCV on bari, but didn't make the line. I kept at it, auditioned again and again until I finally made Blue Devils hornline and then later spent a couple years as drum major for the corps. After aging out, I went on to work with Crossmen and Cadets, and remain a fan until this day.

I am excited about being a part of the MuseScore community and look forward to becoming more actively involved (especially in the drum corps and marching music communities!!). I would love to hear your thoughts or ideas on how MuseScore could become the ideal resource for drum corps fans and the top community for marching music.

DCI Show Collab?

I would love some assistance on ideas, theme, and overall just making an amazing unique show.

Ive already contacted other users to make shows, but I decided to see if any one is up to the task!

Some selections of songs I had in mind(Of course not all of them):
Ride the Lightning - Metallica
Rooster - Alice in Chains
Hey Jude - The Beatles (Trumpet screaming ideas?)
Mama, I'm comin' home - Ozzy
Paper Cut - Alex Shapiro
The Cave You Fear - Michael Markowski
Ride - Sam R. Hazo
Mars - Gustav Holst (SCV 12)
Piano Concerto Mvt. 4 - John Corigliano (Pr 06 and SCV 2015 Closer)
Medea - Bartok (Star of Indiana 93 or Crown 16)
Canyon - Phillip Glass (SCV 1999 and Warm Up)
One - Metallica
Dreams 3 (Visions) - Bertrand Moren (Crown 2012 Closer)

I still have no theme set in stone yet. I'm also not that great at writing battery.

I'm good with Pit percussion, Brass, and Electronic sounds.

If you have any interest of joining the band wagon, and/or shooting some of you ideas, send me a message, I usually always respond asap!

Thanks!

DCI percussion transcribers wanted (Drumline and Pit)

I need somebody to help transcribe the Drumline and Pit for my transcription of the Cavaliers' 2014 show Immortal. The entire brass score is finished, I just need people willing to transcribe in the percussion parts

I have most of the rack part and I have all the percussion in the Dance Macabre section done

The score- https://musescore.com/user/357766/scores/4100606

There are GoPro cams online of the run-throughs of Snare, Tenor, Bass 3, Bass 5 and 2 Marimbas on YouTube, but i don't know how to put heard drum rhythms onto paper so to speak.

If anybody wants to help, leave a comment of any sections/instruments you'd be willing to do
