Writing for Rack Percussion

• Apr 16, 2015 - 23:40

When I write for the marching band or WGI activity, i usually have "rack percussionists" who play a range of instruments from cowbell to triangle to snare drum. So far i haven't been able to figure out how i can put all these parts and sounds on the same line, because currently having a separate line for every instrument crowds my score and makes it hard for them to learn their parts. Does anyone have any suggestions?


Yes, create the staff as a "drum set" rather than any one particular drum, then customize it as necessary to include the specific notes you want (right click staff, "edit drumset"
