Hey all. Just wondering if any one has any suggestions on a type of drill writing software that is out there. Can't afford anyone to write it for me, and I REALLY hate writing drill. Would like to have the computer do most of the work for me. Any suggestions?

My band uses Pyware. It is rather expensive but the students are able to view their own drill. All that you have to do is download the viewer then make your data available to the students so that they can view it. Pyware would like you to use thier site for this ability but you don't have to do it.

The software is good but it will not write the drill for you. You still have to come up with the ideas. You will also find that writing the drill using the software will be harder than writing it by hand the first couple of times you do it. Once you figure it out though it will make life a lot nicer. The best reason to use software though is rewrites. Doing a rewrite on the computer is much easier than doing by hand.

Good luck!
