    Good plan. I did that when I was 14 and doing my work experience - my euph teacher wangled me a week at Kneller Hall. I didn't fancy it as a career before, and I REALLY didn't fancy it as a career afterwards, but the experience was well worth doing for the insight into how it works.

    Go along Benjamin, you'll enjoy it. They're a good band and the pricipal cornet plays top man for the British Army Brass Band, so might be worth having a chat with him.

    I tried to get a week at Knellar Hall but the woman at my school was an utter jobsworth and said I couldn't go.

    I prefer the RAF

    Really? Where are you going and what are you hoping to do afterwards?
