My Templates for Pyware that I share with my videos, as well as a FREE Workflow PDF.  This is my workflow from beginning to end.  It is a workflow I have honed after 17 years of designing drill at almost all levels. It is for those who are experienced with Pyware, or have gone through my tutorial series.  It will walk you through all the steps from contracts, planning, writing and formatting, and exporting your work.  All for FREE

 

COLLABORATE

My name is Joe Huls, and I am a former band director, now full time visual designer living in the UK.  I have been writing and arranging since 2003 and have had the opportunity to write for bands at almost every level.  From locally competitive bands all the way up to Big Ten Universities, and color guards and indoor drumlines of all levels from the local circuits all the way up to WGI finalist color guards.

I would love to help you plan and execute your next production, whether it be pre-arranged or custom.  Or maybe you would like help with Pyware, take a look at my tutorial series or free workflow PDF, or submit a drill file below that is giving you trouble.

Please feel free to email me if you would like to work together on any type of marching arts project.  Whether it be drill design, music arranging, or show consultation.
