comment Macbook pro to piano with MIDI problem
This is almost certainly not a problem with your Mac. You've left out some important information, which is how you are connecting the YDP-161 to your Mac. The YDP-161 doesn't have a USB port and the Mac doesn't have a MIDI input, so you must be using some kind of interface between the two. This is the first thing you need to troubleshoot, and so far it is unclear what you are using.

Is that a typo where it says "2nd fret of the H string"?

comment Marimba Bars on a Vibraphone Frame
Marimba OR vibes, BOTH are expensive and it's not very common for a student to have a set at home unless they're VERY serious -- and usually have some parental support. +1 for going to school to practice -- I know of a guy who made an arrangement with the band teacher after he graduated to come in in the mornings and practice the school marimba for auditions. This is by far the most common way to practice at the high school level (and your band teacher will love you). Just organize your day so you can be at school when it's time to practice.

comment How do you write an instrumental part for a choir?
I would probably group flutes with violin since those are the quietest instruments. Baritone horn and trumpet are the loudest as your brass, and cello can be grouped since it plays in a similar range as baritone (but I'm not sure about this at the primary school level). Xylophones could be grouped with the treble instruments with soft mallets, or might be a separate group with the percussion. You didn't say who was playing piano, but I don't know what I would do if it wasn't the complete background part.

Exactly! Thanks for pointing out the typo -- and another one. My fingers wanted to count by twos!
