    So new to the cornet it hasn`t been delivered yet :biggrin: , A bit about myself, i live in Argyll, Scotland and have decided to try and follow in my grandfathers footsteps and learn to play the cornet (he was in the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra) at the rip old age of 43 :eek: , its going to have to be self taught as there are no instructors in the area so any advice on the best books/dvds etc would be appreciated !, No doubt i will be asking all the usual daft questions but i will search the forums first ;)

    Ah your not that far away then as I can see Kilkenzie from my house!! Do I know you then?! :oops:

    Not strickly true thats theres not any instructors in the area! We have band tues and thurs nights in the Community Centre in Campbeltown, with the beginners also on a Thurs night. Steve Stewart (Soprano from Kirkintilloch Band) travels down and teaches in the schools Mon-Wed, and stays here 2 nights, so Im sure he mite be up for giving lessons the nights he's here! Our conductor could also be availale for lessons at odd times when he's down too!

    So come along and see whats doing!

    Oh and we've a few spare instruments in the cupboard too....!!!
