This is how all high school Clarinet sections are.

Clarinet 1, 2, and 3 all play as separate sections. The Clarinet 1 section always has all of the try hards on that row. They can never really play together with each other because they are always trying to show that they can play their parts better than all of us sitting behind them. Whenever there is a really technical part (With lots of INK! LOL!) they are the ones who are NEVER afraid to try it, while playing confidently at full volume. Basically these are the only players you can hear out of the entire section for most of the piece. The Clarinet 2 and 3 sections are more unified than the first. We are the players that sit behind and we are the first to be ok with not knowing how to play our part and pulling our clarinets down and letting the firsts handle those difficult parts. The ONLY thing these two rows can do better than first is stay playing together. This is because before even discussing, it is understood that when it comes to the difficult parts we all collectively REST. while they continue. You can never hear us when we are playing by ourselves, and you won't ever hear us playing over the Clarinet 1 row like we are supposed to, because we are always unsure of how our parts are supposed to sound.

Take a Listen to a drumline cadence I wrote recently!

 I'm currently 15 and a Junior in highschool and I've decided to share a couple of my cadences, here's the one I wrote most recently. Please take a listen and give me some feedback. I'm considering buying Musescore Pro but even the year plan is expensive... Do you think it's worth it for me to buy it and upload more? https://musescore.com/user/28637296/scores/5878662

Thoughts on this show idea?

So I had this idea for a show called "A Part". The show is about being apart, separated, from something but still being a part of that. In its essence, the show is about stars and how they are so lonely as individuals in the universe but they are a part of the universe, something much greater than themselves. This show theme is giving me really Blue Knights vibes and I just wanted your thoughts on if this could make a show. If anybody is interested I started writing some pit and soloist stuff that fits the theme really well, and if you want to take a shot at this theme I could send those over to you! Thanks for your thoughts, any comments are appreciated.

Thoughts on show concept/Help writing it

Ok, so I had a great idea: In short, it's Minecraft. And before you disclose this as a joke, here's an unnecessarily detailed synopses: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1urSuPIWT1yy7EMyWyo81kFSazDWxkMVF2YMWjU9iJmk/edit?usp=sharing
I actually think this show idea has a lot of potential to be a fantastic show from a design standpoint, but the issue I'm having is that as a percussionist (with most experience on rudimental and battery percussion, much less with mallets) I can only write drumline music really well.
So give this a read if you want, let me know what you think and if you so decide, you can message me if you're interested in helping me design this show. Thanks!
