    As Sarahs teacher, I can safely say her playing is always improving and she IS a good percussionist... She's getting ready for her grade 8 at the moment and I'm confident she will do a great job of it when entered in for it next year...
    Enough of the "I'm not a very good percussionist" already... Ok!?

    Just keep up the practise Sarah; you're doing fine :)

    PERUVIAN nose flute? You're having a laugh! LITHUANIAN nose flute is the nostrilised musical instrument by which all others should be judged! 'Mucus music' par excellence!

    :)

    I strongly disagree! The HAWAIIAN nose flute is the standard all the top beaks go by! True sinus-soidal waves can be heard from the forests ... Dickens has referred to Ebersneezer Scrooge practicising one in his quieter moments away from his money counting! ;)

    True, true.... even Luciano Pava'snotti' was known to partake occasionally..... as was 'Bogey' Carmichael! :)

    heheheh! :p I wonder if Howard Smell has done any arrangements? Didn't Bach write some Snifonias for the thing? And don't forget Ray Steadman-Allen's The Beakons! :rolleyes:

    p.s., doesn't it give a different perspective to Horn Soloists?

    Rumour has it that Hank(ie) Marvin and the Shadows had their most famous hit title come to them via an unfortunate sneeze (aaaaaAAAAA-Pache! :))

    I think we need to get back on-topic here, please!

    what about Glen Miller's version of Chattanooga Ah-Choo Ah-Choo? Also must mention Al Jarreau's Bogie Down, The Dazz Band's Let It All Blow etc. :cool:

    [Back on Topic]

    The school systems are heavily based on results these days and Associated Board exams are part and parcel of that process. Good preparation for standard grades and A-levels. I sat Grade 8 on piano (distinction and a horrible memory of double chromatic thirds in contrary motion) but never sat any for brass. Did brass as first subject at college though.

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em:

    I've split this into a different thread, and would suggest the old spiritual: "Nobody nose de trouble I see" ;)

    What about the Tom Jones Classic:

    "It's Snot - Unusual"

    p.s. Dinie - I think Peter's uncharacteristic outburst came BEFORE he split this into a new thread topic - confused me at first too :shock:

    Or even better - the Muppets singing

    "It's Snot, easy, being Green"

    No worries - I meant to edit it once I'd done the split, but I forgot, and these things take so much longer now I'm on dial-up again :-(

    As one of my comments seems to have sparked this I ought to contribute. How about

    The sound of Sinus?

    A Chill in Paris

    and

    I'd like to teach the world to sneeze?

    Just a thought - watch out for the Lithuanian ones. The constant drizzle tends to fill up the nosepiece very quickly and it's usually advisable to keep your own nosepiece unless you particularly dislike somebody :)

    Nostril number ones (Start worrying if your nostrils do number twos....)

    Mmmm, but surely the first post in this thread was on topic with the GRADED thread itself?

    ;-)
