I have 5 percussion instruments assigned to percussion 1. At the very beginning of the score I want it to say “percussion 1.” Then when the first instrument plays, I’ll label it “tambourine.” Currently the first instrument that plays in perc 1 (Tambourine) is how the staff is named. That is ok for later in the score, but at the very beginning of the score I want it to say “percussion 1.” (Same for perc 2, perc 3, etc.) How to do this?
And, I’d love it if at the very beginning of the score it would automatically list all the instruments for that percussion player like this:
That would be very useful for all players who double instruments, so the staff labels at the beginning of the score would look like this:
