I’m working on a piece where the composer would like to beam quavers over two quavers.
I have acheived this for most instruments by forcing the duration of the intervening crothchet, changing this to 2 quavers, and then beaming the notes together.
This works beautifully on all the instruments in the band until I get to the percussion staves. In the example the lower three percussion parts are 1. A two line percussion stave with Snare Drum and Bass drum, 2. A single line percussion stave alternating between Hi-hat, Tambourine and Crash Cymbal, 3. Optional drum kit.
As you can see, it has worked with the concert band instruments, and the single line percussion stave, but not the drum kit or the 2 line percussion stave. In these cases I cannot force the duration of the crotchet in order to beam the quavers.
Is there a way I can do this?
