I am selling my Stomvi Elite Eb/D trumpet.
The trumpet was bought from new by myself from Phill Parkers but has not been used very much due to the repertoire of the orchestra I used to play in.
I have since moved away and have no need for it, so I would rather it went to a good home than...
I think that the grading system is a good idea especially at an earlier age. It motivates people to do well. As people get older their goals change and so there may not be as much need for them to take grades as that is not what they are interested in, it doesn't mean that these same...
I moved to Coventry at the back end of last year and I was hoping to be able to join a nearby band (within 30-40 miles) on either front or back row.

Is there any benefit of doing a performance diploma first? Would that excuse me from the practical element of the teaching exam ?
I have both a Dennis Wick practice mute and a silent brass system for my trumpet. I found the SB kit very useful when I was staying in hotels but didnt really use it again until now as I have just moved house and dont want to annoy the neighbours just yet!
The Dennis Wick mute does have the...
I know exactly what you mean. A colleague of mine bought a graphics card the same time as me so we could share the P&P costs. They said they had the item in stock and we waited for over 2 months for our cards. Without any decent explanations! We were just told that we would receive them in the...
