Custom Music

Our specialty at GPG Music is to provide unique, original compositions written specifically for marching band and indoor competition. This allows us to tailor every nuance of the production from start to finish without sacrificing sections of pre-existing music due to timing or instrumentation restrictions. It also allows you to dictate specific criteria for styles, ranges, and difficulty levels to achieve a perfect fit for your program.

Each year, GPG Music accepts a limited number of commissions for band, indoor percussion, indoor winds, and winter guard. If you are interested in having a show written specifically for your ensemble, please contact us to secure your slot on our schedule for the upcoming season.

 

In order to achieve a fully integrated musical and visual design, GPG Music offers drill design services to complement any pre-written or originally-composed show. GPG designers know our music better than anybody else and we have package pricing available, making GPG Music your one-stop shop. Please call for a customized quote.
