Hi I am curious as to what the standard of player is within each of the sections. I know that ABRSM grades are not popular around here but for instance What grade equivalent (Grade 1 - 8 or one of the Diplomas) would you expect one of the "corner" players to be within each section (Principal Cornet, Solo Tenor, 1st Euphonium, 1st Trombone) I assume the standards may be slightly lower for back row cornets and lower seats - but I do know there are different skillsets for different positions so I may be completely wrong there. This is partly out of general curiosity as I see lots of adverts out there but no reference to standard. Also as my name suggests I do have a young brass playing child, so may be useful for future reference for him Thank is advance for any replies and discussions I did search for this but the only thread I found was many years old and didn't really answer my question. In that thread the OP asked if had to be Grade 5 or above to play in a top band - as Youth Bands tend to ask for minimum Grade 4 I know the answer to this is yes, way above grade 5 "standard".
