If I have purchased stock music from a publisher, such as Hal Leonard or Alfred, and I am writing my own drill, am I required to get synchronization permission or whatever Tresona does?

For writing drill? No. If you want to publish video you would need the synch rights. If you're just doing it at marching contest though you would not. (I do believe you would need permission to meet the standard to record your band at UIL)

You are allowed to make a single recording at UIL for educational purposes.
*You* are. Provided you do not sell or distribute it in any way.
Most regions stopped doing recordings at UIL because the person/company recording would be required to purchase those sync rights discussed.

Or they can do what our region did...pass the cost down to the bands. Doesn't matter if your show is 100% PD...no $75 paid to the video company, no recording.
