    Hi everyone

    I've just taken proper banding up again after returning to Huddersfield having been exiled in Manchester for 11 years.

    Much to say it's a bit of a shock to the system, I'm sure I actually used to be able to play! :) I'm on cornet now, but used to be a flugel player so it's also a case of getting used to producing a different sound (or unfortunately lack of at the moment).

    I stumbled across tMP on my web travels and thought you'd all probably be a good source of help while I'm trying to get back on track.

    Which leads me to my first question (I'm sure of many) - where is the best place to look on the site for practice advice and discussion, maybe some suggested practice schedules etc. I have a 13 month old so I'm hoping to try and fit in some practice 2 to 3 times a week as well as band twice a week but that could be being a bit optimistic.

    I had considered perhaps finding a teacher to try and help me on my way, anyone know who is good in the Huddersfield area? I've been away so long I'm a bit out of touch with things.

    Many thanks
    ttfn :)
