This weekend I will be interviewed by BBC telly (for Inside Out) as to why there are falling numbers of kids taking up Trombone specifically and Brass instruments generally. This is a great opportunity to get the message across - as I see it the main questions include; 1/ Are falling numbers of players the case throughout the UK? 2/ If this is not the case everywhere, why are some areas producing more players than others? 3/ What are the causes of the falling numbers? 4/ How can we reverse this trend? Please feel free to express yourself fully, if you would rather not do it publicly you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org BTW, any trombonists at the British Trombone Society day at Oundle School this Sunday, feel free to say "hi".
