Just a week to go before I move down to London for uni. I'll be living in central London and was wondering if there are any brass bands around there that would welcome a cornet player along for a blow every now and then?

There are quite a few band 's in and around London, and most of them would welcome cornet players.

Fulham are 4th section at present and have a very good MD. I have assisted them in many gigs as my brother plays there on Eb Bass

I play at Becontree Brass Band and we also have vacancies for all cornets.

Watford Band require solo cornet players. We're about 30 minutes on the train from central London, or 45 minutes by car. We rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8pm.

You can find more details on our website, http://watfordband.org.uk/

Don't worry Kari, I'll be back for a blow tomorrow, just can't get rid of me sorry! I also don't have lectures on Mondays so if you need me for weekend concerts its not a problem! (the train fare only costs 26!)
