    right, as the title suggests really. im moving to huddersfield for uni, so will be located in huddersfield during term time..

    ideally, id prefer champs or first section, but am willing to consider other sections too. ill make it clear here, i am NOT a drum kit player, although i can bash a few simple things out on it. i prefer to play timpani, but can also play tuned instruments, and all the random bits and bobs.

    i will need lifts to rehearsals as i can't take a car with me (parents wont let me)

    ok, a little bit about me if you like.. im 18, going to huddersfield uni to study music, currently play with Freckleton (NW Champs section), and in the last 12 months have been a member of the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain, and also of the European Youth Brass Band.

    i have also been a member of the National Childrens Brass Band of Great Britain in its inaugural year, St Helens Youth Brass Band (where i occupied the Principal Percussionist spot for several years), The Haydock Band (where i had the achievement of playing in RAH at the Championship section finals).

    now ive bigged myself up abit, please let me know if you have a vacancy!

    wow! i wasn't expecting such a quick reply! cheers wilky!

    i move into halls on the 16th, so from then i will get in touch with bands, and i think the fairest way to decide between all replies i get is to do a rehearsal at each, and then make a decision :)

    Hey sarah, you should check out Wakefield Met, they're a great bunch just looking for percussion to fill in their line-up. They are all really tall though.

    As Helen said, we are looking for another percussionist. We are playing in the National Finals in Harrogate in a couple of weeks time but after that we are doing Pontins, we are also promoted to the 1st section as of January and will be going on tour to Germany in August.

    If you want anymore details just pm me!!

    ok, just a quick update to those i haven't been in touch with yet... i have to apologise some more... i will not be able to attend any rehearsals in the next 2 weeks, due to an injury to my left bicep. however after then (or probably nearing the end of the 2 weeks) expect me to be in touch!!!

    i promise i will get round to everyone!!!

    Huddersfield brass' percs only come part time and so I'm sure you'd be welcome to come down, can never have enough percys :D (thats like perkys, not percy the name lol)

    I might have missed this info but are you a kittist, tunedist, or a bothist ;)

    hope your arm recovers asap!

    btw, we are playing a piece for next years area which definately requires 3 percs apparently, so there should be plenty to do if you fancy coming down some time

    if you want more info feel free to contact me on here!
