This message goes out to any bands situated in York... I've given up on the cornet, it didn't agree with me. I asked it to sing, and instead, it burped! So, I have a new plan. I know how to play the drums. Fair enough, not in a brass band sense, more of a rocky sense, but I know my way around a drum kit (just). So here is my proposal, I go to university in York (St John campus on Lord Mayors Walk) and I was wondering if there were any bands situated in York itself, and if they fancied teaching me to read kit music and basically show me the ropes. I'm back home for summer, so I might go down to Bradwell and see what i can learn there, but theres no gurantee that there will be someone to help, So, if theres any bands in York (i'm guessing junior bands) who want to help me learn to play drums to a brass band (instead of guitars ) next september, then please let me know. You could reply to the thread, but no guarantee i'll get it anytime soon, so it's best to mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org any help full stop would be appreciated Thanks guys!
