I have a piece with 4 percussionists, each playing a group of instruments. In some cases I have grouped instruments into kits (wood blocks for instance). I would like for the staff label to include “Percussion 4” above the wood block labels. Is this possible? Or do I need to make the woodblocks separate instruments (no kit).
Unfortunately you can’t at the moment use the player name as a staff label, which might be the natural way to handle this for a multi-instrument percussion part, but depending on how you have your kit set up, you may be able to get the name you want to appear by setting one or more appropriate group names on the Grid page of Edit Percussion Kit or with the Edit Names button on the five-line staff page of the same dialog.
