Score with only grand piano adding percussion to same measure

• May 30, 2020 - 19:19

Hi, I'm kinda a novice. I've been taking my books and creating them in MuseScore so that I can use my iPad when visiting family for the holidays. I have one score that has percussion in a couple of measures (see attachment) in the score.

The only instrument that I have is the grand piano. When I add an instrument I found under percussion it adds additional staff to the score. I've even tried playing around with the choosing of the staff line when adding the instrument.

Is there a way to be able to add an instrument to a certain measure? I've looked in the pallets but I can't find percussion-like notes like when I actually add a percussion instrument.

Is there a way to add an instrument to the same grand staff treble clef lines?

The only way I've been able to find a solution is to create an SVG in Adobe Illustrator of the note(s) and add them that way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Oh, that's awesome! Thank you, I spent the last 15 minutes reproducing what you did. I learned something new. I didn't see the "Change Instrument" button under "Staff/Part Properties"-->"Part Properties"
Thank you for taking the time to do that! That really helped and taught me something new! :)
