Hello everyone! I play trombone in a marching band (though as we're getting older we're doing less marching and more standing still) which used to be a Boy's Brigade Band when our male members were little boys. However only 4 of us actually read music which makes arranging interesting and also means that the rest of the band play by numbers. We mainly play to raise money for local charities and have a few concerts each year but we don't play in any competitions. I also play piano and taught for 15 years but I actually feel more at home playing trombone now. This is an exciting site but I feel a little overawed as so many of you and your bands seem so accomplished.
