Our Music Publishing departement is specialized in the publication of popular music for: Show & Marching Bands (drumfanfares), Marching Percussion Ensembles (drumbands), Marching Mallet Ensembles (malletbands), Concert Bands (harmonie/fanfare) and Concert Percussion Ensembles
The most of our publications are provided with a printed score. This score includes a cd-rom with all single parts (in the most common transpositions) in .pdf format and a recording of the publication in .mp3 format. In this way you only have to print the parts and transpostions you need for your ensemble and there are always sufficient reserve parts present. Besides the above publications we can also help you with music for Big Bands and Jazz Ensembles.
Currently we are developping a new basic percussion method. At this moment the following boos are available in this series. Mallet Basics, Snare Drum Basics Method, Recital Pieces for Snare Drum, Mallet Basics,Recital Pieces for Mallets and Recital Pieces for Multi Toms.
If you are interested in having your own educational material, compositions or arrangements published by Show & Marching Music, you are invited to submit your material (preferably accompanied by sound fragments) for assessment.
Adapt Music? No Problem!
Arrangements or compositions can be adjusted as much as possible to the specific situation of your group. This applies to all of our music. For example, a trumpet part can be changed into a flute part, or a trombone part altered to make it suitable for a baritone, a two-tonal bass drum part made out of a four-tonal bass drum part, or a trio part out of a quint part. Please inquire about options available. With our own publications most transpositions and different kind of percussion parts are supplied.
Show & Marching Music can provide Custom-Made Arrangements for every kind of band or ensemble. Our professional arrangers can adjust music specifica lly to your group, level and the wishes of your band or ensemble.
In addition to writing music, you can now also have our partner Artdevelopment.nl create your Show Design or choreography. From a street show to the concept for a full field show; anything is possible!
It is possible to transcribe music you have written (by hand) into professional scores and/or individual parts. We use the leading music processing software Finale for this purpose. The scores or parts can be delivered in any desired format.
The music processing department also provides our Transposing Service, where each score, part or piece can be transposed in any way you desire.
