Staves question

• Dec 3, 2021 - 06:37

So, I see a lot of different things with staves and conductor's scores.

So essentially my question is, say I have two trumpet parts (Bb Trumpet 1 and Bb Trumpet 2), and I see different ways to do this. So usually I just have two separate instruments for 1 and 2, but I often see people use one instrument with two staffs or using voicing.

For me in particular I have a trumpet part which originally had two separate instruments as I always do.
However I want to make it easier for the conductor to read both parts (it's a concert band piece by the way), so I just combined both parts and just used voicing. Is this the right way to do it? Or should I use the staff method instead?


The right way is whatever your conductor says is OK but it is fairly common to put two (or more) monophonic instruments (trumpet, trombone, tuba etc,) on one stave in the Conductor's score.
