Hi all. I am Phil aged 29 and live near Wisbech which is near Peterborough, UK. I used to try to play the trumpet when in school and got to grade 3 however quickly gave up playing. I have decided I wish to start learning again and have booked some lessons with a teacher locally. I would like to play with a brass band in the long run. We have one local to where I am, a small non competition town band. I still have a Yamaha trumpet and have tried to play a little. Am feeling a bit deflated due to sounding so bad and not being able to read music as well as I could. I try to remember it has been 15 years and I never was that advanced in the first place. My wife also used to play the Eb tuba and wishes to play again. She stopped playing more recently than me and played to a higher standard so she is joining the local band in the next few weeks. Anyway, will no doubt appreciate plenty of help from the community here. I will be in the market for a Cornet when I get to a better standard.
