I have a couple of students that are prepared to do timpani parts...including knowing what drums are needed for what notes, and tuning them with a tuner. |
In SR, when I know that there is a timpani part, I assign that part first so I don't inadvertently assign those kids to another part. I ask the head judge (the one who was going to talk with the kids during my 3 minutes) when they could start tuning, and they usually say "right away". Kid grabs the tuner and tunes them up. By the time I come back from score study, timpani are good to go.
