Looking To Write Battery Parts For Practice

Hey everyone and anyone!
I'm looking to write some battery parts for practice.
Whether it be for a Marching Show or Indoor Show, I want to get better as a composer.
I can send you the end result of what I wrote if you want, but this is more of a personal thing.
Anything you send me will be kept personal and will not be reuploaded or shown to anyone else.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day/night! ☺

I found the secret to sounding good in jazz solos (on vibes) (in minor keys)

So, let's take the minor scale (D, in this example)
D E F G A B♭ C D
Now, let's remove the second and sixth degrees.
D F G A C D
Why have we done this? Well, now that those two notes are gone, we have removed all nasty-sounding intervals from the scale. Every note is at least a whole step apart, and there is no tritone! Yay! You now have a completely safe and boring solo!

What's that? You don't want to sound safe, boring, or (to be honest) good? 

Well, look no further than the Double Harmonic Major Scale!
It's... interesting. Just look.
D E♭ F♯ G A B♭ C♯ D

It's honestly a mess, and don't even try to build a chord progression with it. *shudders* I've tried.

New Group

 If anyone is interested, I recently created a new group called  Percussion Solo and Duet Repertoire. I want the group to store as much  percussion repertoire as possible that only requires on or two players  to perform. This can also includes pieces that feature a percussion  soloist (Ex: Bob Becker's Bye Bye Medley and Emmanuel Sejourne's Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra). Here's the link if anyone is  interested in joining:

Need some feedback!

Hey, everyone!

I am working on an arrangement of "Highlights from 'The Wizard of Oz'" for my percussion ensemble. It is linked in the sheet music section of the group.

Feel free to leave any feedback so I can improve my piece.

Have a great day!

Percussion Advice

Hi all!

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!

Tuplets.

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.

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 :)
