I don't know if this has already been a topic, being only a Newbie, but I was once told by someone, whilst discussing various subjects to do with brass bands, that I should not give my opinion, because I am only twenty years old and therefore have not experienced enough to know what I'm talking about. In my defence, I said that although I was aware I had a lot to learn, I had been brought up in the brass band world literally since birth and had been playing for many years. And I felt that this experience had qualified me to give my opinion. Do others feel that young peoples opinions aren't valid? (Just curious) :?
