    I am presently looking for a band to conduct to start out gaining some conducting experience - any section/standard considered as long as it is in the West Yorkshire/Lancashire area! I have many years experience playing at Championship level and have played for or helped out all of the North's top bands. Please PM me to get in contact. Cheers!

    Sorry, can't help with your request, but best of luck finding a band. I first started conducting a 4th section band. It was very tiring, but ultimately rewarding. I think that if I had started with a better band, I may not have gained the same knowledge as I did. I think that all conductors should start with 4th section or youth bands, as there are valuable lessons to be learned about diplomacy and communication skills! In that respect, I think that anyone aspiring to be a football manager should also start at the grass roots, but that's another story.

    Hope all goes well for you.
