This march is inspired by the clinic Xander van der Ploeg gave at the Dordtse Drumclinic Day about Basel and Swiss drumming. He told about the Basel feel and pulse that almost every Basel march has. Inspired by the power and the pulse they use in Basel drumming, and some typical Swiss grundlagen I composed this march.

Concert(???) band work in progress (idk if this should be classified as concert band or not help).

Wow! This is pretty different from the usual stuff I post on here, isn't it? I mean, for starters, it's a work in progress, which I never usually post, and sweet Gsus, look at the instrument count!

I have never worked on any really big ensemble pieces like this before, so please be kind! As this is a work in progress and I'm pretty much ad-libbing things, I hoped that publishing what I have so far would be a good way to ask for advice from band peeps and other composers to see what they think of it so far. I'm also hoping it'll prove to be motivation to keep me writing this (since I accidentally forgot it existed for like a semester...whoops).

The current plan: Next comes a more minor-y section that I have vague ideas for, and I'm not too sure what will come after that, but I do have the ending of the piece fairly fleshed-out. Any other ideas would be much welcomed, though! (Name ideas would also be much welcomed.)

Note: As this is a WIP project, I'm not really worrying about formatting right now, so there are pretty much no rehearsal markings and stuff. Also, there are some empty staves (i.e. oboe and unpitched percussion rip). I will add all of that stuff in later. I'm also not worrying about going soundfonting at this point, but here's slightly better audio if you really want it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1soQrVrkQSbFqVy3yY6V1q_U1o5U0-jlP/view?usp=sharing

This is just a work in progress at the moment, so please do not perform this song. Do not take, share, or post this audio or sheet music anywhere else.

Enjoy! :)

Here's Jim playing the solo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88fngyWgQBQ

I wrote this with some place holder brass parts, change whatever you want, and add some pit or brass or something. I'm super open to suggestions on what to change.

[This cadence has Virtual Drumline audio available]

An energetic cadence that will surely arouse the crowd. Quite an easy cadence for any dedicated high school drumline. Meant for parades but may also be a stand tune.

This cadence starts off with a groovy bass line beat. It then transitions into a loud hip-hop--like jam. Then it showcases the sub-sections each with their own cool little things. It ends as the drumline finishes off in unison.

Recommended Instrumentation:
4 Marching Snare Drums
2 5-Drum Marching Tenors
4 Tonal Marching Bass Drums
2 Sets of Cymbals

This cadence was composed completely on MuseScore with the Virtual Drumline Sound Library (YouTube Playback) and MuseScore Drumline extension (MuseScore Website Playback)
