Mallet Writer

I’m writing a ballad and although for a high school marching band and although it is not completely finished, the show theme is Bruno Mars, so the songs they play are based off of that. Anywho,I’m looking for mallet writers for this ballad (1 Marimba,1 Xylo., 1 Vibe, 1 Bell, and 1 piano/Keyboard. Also if any bass parts could be written out, we might have a player so that would also be greatly appreciated! Feel free to message me if you’re interested and much love to everyone :)

Song suggestions for a drum corps show

Hey! So I'm starting work on a project called "Wake Up" and I'm looking for ideas of some possible songs to put in it. They can either be from this website or big professional works.

The show theme is more on the depressing/somber side with a twist at the very end. (Not spoiling anything yet) But help would be appreciated with the musical selections and also a percussion writer would be awesome!

Thanks!

Help Appreciated

I'm not too great at spicing up Low Brass or bass parts. Nor am I too great at writing battery parts. Bear with me on this piece since I haven't figured out on an opener and if you'd like to help me write it that would be awesome! Either way help is much appreciated so if you'd like to collaborate on my piece Life To Undead (which needs a better title too) I'd love the help!

Help

I have been in my school band for 2 years. I went from elementary to middle school. We started in 6th grade and are now in 7th and I am a tenor sax. I currently gave problems with coming from over the break to some of the lower notes like F, F#, E, D, et cetera. If anyone has suggestions, please post some.
