Hi there, I'm pretty new to brass bands and new to the mouthpiece. I jointed Tullis Russell Mills Band last October and have loved every minute of it. Everyone was really welcoming, it was just like a social club with a little bit of hard work :wink: The problems that i have are things such as being confident in my playing and understanding the brass band sound. I am 16 and played the trumpet in windbands at school and across Fife but now am having to adjust the 2nd cornet place at Tullis. I must say, joining Tullis has improved my playing so much over the last few months and hopefully my standard will be much better as time goes on. does anyone have any advice on how to boost my confidence within the brass band situation and sound and make me a much better player? :?
