Hello, the kids have finally moved out, I have time to spare, I don't like watching tv and I need a new hobby. A while back I was at a music festival and got chatting to a couple of guys who were playing in a brass band. They invited me to go along to a practice session and try a brass instrument. Fast forward a few months and I'm involved with a learner band. Struggling to keep up with the talented kids and baffled by all those dots on the page; but loving every minute of it!
