After randomly reading some posts it seems a lot of people are worried about the numbers of people in brass bands declining. Also, that we need to attract more people to brass band (especially youngsters)... so i was thinking.... if we can think of what attracts us to brass banding then we can help get other people into it. So what does attract you to brass band????????? :sup Personally, i enjoy playing an instrument, and its also a good way to make new friends. I also enjoy having to play a 'challenging piece' which i need to practice so i can play it. p.s. is banding a word?
