    try looking for a good trumpet or euphonium tutor in your area if you cant find a T-Horn one..
    Same advice whatever the instrument.. only real difference is that they wouldnt know much reportoire

    Yeh, Libraries are always a good bet. If not find a local band, there's bound to be some teacher's in them.

    Try www.music-exchange.co.uk

    They have a list of teachers on there by area.

    Can't see a brass teacher in Oxford, but you can search other local areas on there.

    Another tip, try phoning the pianists....see who they know... sometimes due to exam silibus a brass teracher will call upon an accomplished pianist - usually a friend - and maybe even a teacher friend!

    ... or even look in your local Music shop.... there's usually a notice board when business cards or leaflets are displayed. Maybe the shop owner will also know of specific tutors in your area.

    Another good source of information is a school Music teacher. They will be being asked all the time by their pupils of where to find tutors etc...

    Just a few thoughts.... :)

    Hi there Liv; it's some time now since we were both playing at Wantage - must be 6 or 7 years? It's a pretty sparse area for good teachers round here, true enough; in fact, I can't think of any specialist Horns at all. One name that comes highly recommended by others - although I've not met him - is Bob Cutting, who's a Trumpeter. Eileen Sykes at Wantage will have his contact details; I think he lives in Abingdon. Oh, perhaps there is a Tenor Horn specialist - Fiona Parker is certainly a good French Horn player and teacher, and I think also does Eb Tenor. Worth a try maybe - if you're interested, I can get her number. I used to get Euph lessons from John Winterflood in Swindon; we always got along okay. His number is 01793 421511, iirc.

    Bandless? Kidlington is a nice friendly group - albeit with two very sound Horn players already... I think we've just taken delivery of a 2nd Horn as well... Oh well.

    Hi Dave

    Yes bandless at the mo sick an tired of the ways things were at city!!!!!! Now i'm nursing full time i also find it difficult to commit to a band fully but enjoy helping bands out.............less demanding!!

    I know fiona.....no disrespect to her but i really need an experienced brass band player to take me that bit further i think...............to be honest i don't think john winterflood would be that good for me either but i'll look into the other contact..thanks for the ideas.

    will see u about i'm sure..............just not at the areas i doubt??

    Next contest up we're doing 'The New Jerusalem' at Leamington. I think City are going too; not sure if that's a positive or a negative inducement though... Shall certainly be at the Areas - something decent in the Bass Trombone part at last!
