    Does anyone remember where......

    Ok so this is really a wild stab in the dark but I am praying someone can help! Several years ago (maybe 5+) there was an article written about the state of brass banding and in particular reference to bands in Wales. There was a headline figure which I remember was quite shocking at the time...

    Brass Bands in the classroom

    yeah i'm going to show them extracts of the band playing rather than the whole film. I dont have time for them to watch the whole film anyway but it also gets around them being underage!

I love my Yamaha it...
