    Hi all-
    After many years of doing sod all music wise- it is time to get back.
    I am an Eb tuba player- previously at Purcell School and now finding the time to get back into playing. Experience mainly orchestral but have a fair bit of experience with brass group playing. Have even been known to dig the old trombone out on occasion!

    I am a prison officer, and am now findong the urge to start playing again. Havent had much spare time these last few years!

    My aim is to get into Brass band playing and have put an expression of interest into Egham Band as they are short of an Eb. Ideal.

    So hopefully, my sister is bringing up my old Besson so i can blow the spiders out of it and start to annoy the neighbours (might have to invest in the old silent brass thing?!?).

    I live in the Sunbury (m3) area so if anyone needs a tuba player- let me know.
