    I was having a conversation today about starting my PGCE and it was brought to my attention that loads of bandsmen are teachers. I already know some people on here are teachers and I wondered how many of us there actually are? or how many you have in your band.

    I am studying, and one of my seniors wants to be a teacher. But my old band, we were all teachers, or education students.

    In my Band... there's one retired school teacher who now teaches brass and one secondary teacher (I think he's still teaching). But that's quite a high percentage because there only about 10 or 11 adults in the band!
