I am currently working on a project that sounds more like a soundtrack than a classical piece, and I have no experience with percussion instruments. Does anyone know of a good resource to familiarize myself with the different percussion instruments and their uses in an orchestra, especially as it related to soundtrack music? I know what I want the percussion in the score to sound like but I do not know the best instruments to use to make those sounds.
Any help is appreciated!
In the space of 2 quarter notes am attempting to write a 7 note tuplet for a snare part that matches up with a quarter note triplet on a bass part. It's a little off. The Ctrl 3 and Ctrl 7 functions work but the results don't match. I can play it but the music doesn't match up. Any help is appreciated.
Hello, I create a music sheet of Bohemian Rhapsody for a percussion ensemble, can you say what do you thing of this piece.
It is only the First version and I want it to be better.
Hey guys, I'm back after a bit of a hiatus for summer school and work but i can't decide on the song i want to arr. next. i have a few that I have been wanting to do but i can't seem to stay focused on just one of them. so if you all could give me some feed back on which you would like to hear that would be greatly appreciated. Take a look at my Previous arrangements and see what you would like to hear next.

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 :)
Please share what you think of this original piece! Criticism appreciated, but also just looking for general thoughts and opinions.
I have some ideas of an opener for a WGI kind of show and am in need of some help. Feel free to mess with the score any way you'd like, just send me the results and credit me somehow. The score is in my sheet music: Untitled WGI Show
So next year will be my senior year of high school and I'd like to compile the big pit moments from each of the past three shows that I have performed into a sort of lot piece. I have been trying to figure out a good way to do it, but I've been unsuccessful so far. If anybody would be interested in helping me out, please let me know. I really want to surprise my section with something like this.
About a year ago I was playing percussion in my school's production of My Fair Lady. I don't remember which song this was in, but at one point the percussion score-- and I believe it was only the percussion score-- had the marking "fake time". I have not seen this marking anywhere else, and no one, not even google, seems to know what it means (When I asked my director what it meant, he said "you're a percussionist, it's what you've been doing this whole time. Music directors are mean...) To me, it seems like it would be synonymous with "free time", but that seems like an odd thing to have in one part of a theatrical score. Has anyone on here seen this marking before? If so, how was it interpreted? If not, how would you interpret it?
Man, I have got to be the worst admin in the world, going AWOL for months and months. Probably should put a few other admins on this page in the case of my absence.
But man, never thought this group would have more than 50 people in it. Next thing I know, there's over 100 people, then 200, and I'm like, wow.
But enough of that, I wanted to ask you all a question. I see quite a few Copy/Paste arrangements on this site, and I've always made it a point that whenever I make some kind of arrangement, I add my own little thing to it, a signature if you will. And it got me wondering if anyone else does that kind of thing.
Personally I love adding in chimes, bells, vibes, and any other metals I can add to make things spark a bit more. I also like to increase the speed of playing of several things I write, but I'll also slow things down quite a bit as well.
Is there any kind of style you all use? Or do you aim to keep things as close to the original as you can get?
Hello, everyone. I am very new to groups, and I was just wondering how you add songs in the list?
For example, I have a song in here that I think is pretty cool, but I don't know how to add it.
Any answer is appreciated, thanks! :D
I've made a couple templates for marching band over at https://musescore.org/en/node/111531. I was looking for your ideas on them. Specifically:
1. How did your maching band handle percussion parts? Were they written with the wind parts, or were the parts that came with the arrangement usually re-written to suit your specific ensemble?
2. For the "WGI" scores (which could also double as the percussion parts for a marching band that writes them separately), do you agree with my selection of instrumentation? It's clearly nuts to try to believe that there's any "standard" pit, but do I have good starting points for both?
I know this looks a lot like a Pokémon Ranger quest, but I assure those of you who know what I'm talking about, it's not. I just need help on making a score for something (you'll never know until it's done). How the heck does one get the metal wind chimes to work in Musescore (P.S. I love how on their own website, it shows up as an incorrect word). It sounds a lot easier than it is, so please help me. I don't know if nobody truly knows how to do it, or if I am just completely clueless.
I was wondering if anyone had messed around the Master Effects settings, and the Zita1 effect, to see if they could get their instruments to sound a little more realistic? I mean the MIDI's aren't bad, but it'd be nice to get as close to a realistic sound as possible! Or has anyone just messed with the default settings and found that they like a certain setup?
