How to create drum notation in one minute


I’ve already linked to Katie Wardrobe’s excellent new blog, Music Tech Tips, but I couldn’t resist linking to Katie’s latest video, which is tantalisingly called The 1 minute drum part. Writing drum parts in notation software is normally pretty involved, and Katie shows you how to create a simple drum part in a matter of seconds.

You may also be interested in the more in-depth video tutorial I put together about writing for unpitched percussion in Sibelius a while back.

    How can one create conga notation like this?

    How are the “+” and “s” above added? Also how does Sibelius know to play another sound?
