Synchronize YouTube Videos with Scores

Not sure how many of you know about the MuseScore feature where you can synchronize a YouTube video with a score, but thought it could be pretty cool to sync up some videos.

Here is an example of a synchronized score: https://musescore.com/robin_m_butler/drum-corp

This could take the concept of Vic Firth's "Learn the Music" to the next level. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCq9eCicq8HmD80vSyIbp8w

Percussion rewrite on my piece.

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!

Does anyone have a ballad suggestion?

SO

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

Repertoire:
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.

Fun challenge: Compose a theme for a thing I'm doing

My friend and I have a Youtube channel and at 100 subs we promised we would start work on a long term project which is a film we call Karate Steve II: The Duke of Overkill. Our channel is comedy so that is what our movie will be. We have a synopsis done and the first couple minutes worth of script. I think it would be fun to have an original theme over some royalty free music off the internet. 

Here's the basic idea for the film: 
Karate Steve has forgotten who he is due to the script for Karate Steve I being misplaced and his mission is to locate the script before the evil Duke of Overkill finds it. He works with Director Mister President of the S.E.A.E.Y.E.A.Y (pronounced C.I.A) to find it.

The idea for the music would be a 70s disco spy thriller. We need a theme that would be able to be placed throughout the film as a motif of the character and his fight against the sinister organization F.A.R.T (the Foundation Association of Redundant Troublemakers.)

If this sounds stupid that's because it is. Were aiming to film and edit this summer and the film should be posted by the end of August or early September.

Here's the link to the video we introduced the character in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6MoR7UwQLU
Skip to 1:00 into the video to see the fake trailer we made for the movie before we knew we were gonna make the movie.
