I'm arranging for Steel Band, however I don't want to arrange using the Steelpans on Musescore ( doesn't sound authentic) I prefer using Pianos. However when I select Piano, I'm having trouble removing the Bass row for the Soprano, Alto and Tenor voices and the Treble row for the Bass voice. Please Assist.


If I understand your question, you could try creating a new score using any of the templates that have several instruments such as Chamber Music. Then you can edit the clef from the pallets.

and the instruments to achieve your goal.

Generally it's better to add the right instrument then adjust the sound if necessary - there are other settings that won't be right if you literally use pianos (like the ranges, the tags used for MusicXML export, etc). So, add the steel pan instrument then just set the sound to the Muse Sounds piano if that's what you prefer.Or, perhaps better, find a soundfont or VST instrument that has a steel pan sound you like better than the one in MS Basic.
