Writing Brass Solos for Drum Corps

Recommended Posts

How does one notate solos in a drum corps hornline score? Are they written on the same staff as the overall part (i.e. a solo played by a member of the trumpet 1 section would be on the trumpet 1 staff, marked "solo") or are they written separately?


Edit: Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I couldn't find an arranging/writing forum and this seemed like the closest thing to the right place.

It depends on the number of bars and if there are accompanying parts that are the same instrumentation.

For the most part: written separately, especially if it's a long solo and/or if you have the similar instruments playing in the background.
