Reply To: marching percussion writing
Percussion writing is great but my advice would be always think for the music first. It’s easy to write a fancy percussion that you know into a song but is it musically sound? I start out with learning to match rhythms to the rest of the band. I also think it’s important to have an overall concept of what a marching percussion section is doing on the field. Is it a marching drumset or is a marching concert percussion battery section? Important steps to get started with.
