    Gap in Range

    A friend had this on their Prestige cornet (early model not the newer one) on 'top' Bb. The only way you could play it was on open. A few players tried and had the same problem on that instrument (even tried with different mouthpieces v same mouthpiece). They eventually took it to a shop and...

    Paddy's London & Southern Counties Area - 2013

    I think a huge congratulations to the organising team should be mentioned. Everything just seemed to flow this year with little delay. Not sure about the new layout of the venue, the venue staff didn't seem to know what to do. Trying to get out of the 4th section results ready to play in the...

    Errata Saddleworth Festival Overture

    There were a couple of cornet parts that had a quaver rest missing somewhere in a 12/8 section. Off the top of my head I can't remember where.

    Errata Saddleworth Festival Overture

    We had an old set lent to us before our purchased set arrived. In the old set it was crotchet = 84-88. In the new set it is quaver = 84-88 which I am informed by the publisher is the correct marking.

    Scaba autumn contest at Folkstone October 2009

    I agree, a really good day out. It was Boxted first contest for a number of years and despite being 8th we can't wait to go again. Everyone was helpful and friendly, and the written and verbal comments were very clear and encouraging for the third section. I also played in the second section...

    Michael Jackson

    Discussing this in class this morning and one of the kids turned around and said something which has struck a chord (pardon the pun). "Sir. He might have been a pop-god and that, but at the end of the day he should died in prison where he belonged for what he did to them kids. If I do that in...

    How to conduct (for an absolute beginner)

    Having just completed a part-time course with Ray Farr in conducting, I can well recommend a course, be it a day or two or longer. The pieces we were studying and conducting were challenging and having the opportunity to talk with the composers was a useful part of the course. Ray was very...
