    (*Given the distinct lack of anything resembling personal hygiene, the total lack of handkerchiefs and teenagers' habit of sticking their fingers up their noses I am not surprised. I would never even consider giving a child permission to use the staff computer anyway.)

    Sir, my baby sister's got nits!

    Here's the music for Sunday's performance. The parts are in concert pitch.

    Tell them all to learn how to read properly.

    In my Brass Quintet, we have 2 cornets and a tenor horn as opposed to trumpets and french horn. The tenor horn player kept whinging about parts in F.

    I gave him two options.

    Either he transposes all the parts himself or he learns how to read in F.

    He learnt how to read in F very quickly.

    And Chris?

    Is this the way to Abi's pillow?

    Seriously, Bill, I'm not taking the p**s and I apologise for sounding like an arrogant t**t.

    I know exactly where you're coming from.

    A few years ago, I was helping out with a musical and all the parts were in concert pitch.
    The director was adamant that he wanted a full band playing so me and a friend had to sit down and hand write all the transpositions.

    Then said director turned round and started chopping and changing the parts which meant we had to sit down and write them again with the changes.

    Never again.

    Granted, it would be much easier now with access to Sibelius but I still would tell people to learn to read in C. It makes the life of the designated transposer much easier.
