• tMP Functionality - we're working on it.

    We are going to continue to configure the latest software over the next few weeks but we felt it was looking ok enough for us to be able to relaunch tMP as it stands now. There are a list of items I need to continue to work on and set up, but if you do have any ideas or suggestions as to what else we could do, please shout and let me know.

    The front page of tMP is now an inbuilt vBulletin CMS type of function which I have yet to configure in the way it will be finally, so my apologies if this changes. We are going to continue to work on this over time.

    The menu system currently only has two items... so if you're in the forum and you want to get back to the very front - click the little 'house' looking icon at the very top-left just above the yellow notice.

    Thanks to everyone for your understanding, and patience whilst we continue to recover. Shout in the 'How-to' section if there's anything you want to ask.

    Hello I have been following this forum for a while and feel compelled to ask a few questions. There has been a lot of talk about attracting young people to the movement, a bit of a debate about contests vs concerts and yet as far as I can see there is no mention at all of the fact that women...

    Thread Starter: BrianT

    I've been playing Arban's No.10 study for years - but just the other day I realised I've not been playing what's written. The arrowed note ought to be an F# but until I spotted my error I've always played an F natural. F# does sound a bit spicier than F natural, but that's probably because I'm so...

    Moving up the sections with one band

    Thread Starter: Bbmad

    Has anyone here as a player or MD ever moved up the sections, from say 4th to 1st or even Champ Section with the same band? If so: How long did it take? How many original players from the 4th section made it? How was it financed/was it sustainable? Was the sense of achievement greater than...

    Green Christmas Praise Books

    Thread Starter: metalminions

    Does anyone know of anywhere/anyone that may be looking to sell a copy of the sop part for the green Christmas carols books? I know they've been discontinued, but it's very frustrating not having a copy as i'm constantly carrying around two cornets! If anyone could give me a lead I'd be eternally...

    So we have to discount more listings, as we start to see more and more conductors with only initials this far back. But here's what we have:

    Melodically, it's got to be an F natural. Earlier in the bar it's part of that semitone-below-Eb-maj-arpeggio figure, but it doesn't have that function
