New LilyPond Templates (part 1)

Greetings, everyone!

It feels strange to (once again) not have put up a post before another month passed, but, alas, it has happened again. Let's remedy the situation!

I've decided to take it upon myself to create a small library of LilyPond 2.18.2 template files that are inspired by those found in the latest version of Sibelius (7.5). When all is said and done, I plan on replicating ALL of its templates in the following categories:
  1. No Category
  2. Solo Instruments
  3. Band
  4. Chamber Groups
  5. Choral and Song
  6. Handbells
  7. Jazz
  8. Latin
  9. Marching Band and Percussion
  10. Orchestral
  11. Orff Instruments
  12. Rock and Pop
So far, I've got #1 and 2 done, but hopefully will be able to pick up the pace and get the others cranked out. I've tried to follow Sibelius' designs as faithfully as possible in hopes that Sibelius users who are familiar with them will find the change over to LilyPond that much easier.
