    Conductors can't read dynamics

    I dont actually think you cornet players know how to be quiet! :lol: Kinda annoying when I'm standing at the front of the band trying to tell them stuff and people are chattering amongst themselves (I really couldn't give a toss if its about the piece of music they are playing and giving each...

    Conductors can't read dynamics

    Hi James! No - Cage 4'33 is NOT silence. The reason he did it was to prove that you can never have complete silence. He went into a soundproof room to do an experiment on silence, and he found that he still heard noises (his heartbeat, breathing etc) So he composed a piece of music which is...

    Tuition Fees

I left uni 2 years ago in about £10k worth of debt, I had to take out loans to live off cos the Government believe that a student can live off a measly grant of £200 per term. PMSL. That covers not even one months rent (living in Edinburgh is a tad expensive). I was...
