    Land O' Burns Contest 2007

    Great to see the NE bands doing well over the border - special well done to Easington for 4th place, a great result for them and from a drunken phone call at around midnight last night I gather that the celebrations were almost as good as their performance. Was a real shame Fishburn couldn't...

    Playing problems - please help!!!!

    It's definitely not the horn. I feel like my lips have been replaced with a beginner's, so I've been practising more but with no improvement. Any more advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated. As Superhorn says, with Judges starting off with horn, the last thing I want is these problems...

    Playing problems - please help!!!!

    Hi there. Over the last couple of weeks I seem to have suffered a setback with my playing and was wondering if anyone out there has suffered the same, or has any suggestions to remedy it. Over the last few months I've been doing the best playing of my life, and in my band's last contest (Land...

    Horn Music

    Hi all. Was just wondering if anyone knew where I could buy the music for the Finale from the Strauss Horn Concerto? Have had a quick look on t'internet but can't seem to find it. Does anyone know if there is a recording out there anywhere? I've also been looking for music for the Wilby/ Howarth...

    The 'Official' tMP North of England Regional Thread

    Thanks Sam I am still finding it difficult to accept missing out on a qualification place yet again (it still hasn't sunk in yet), especially as the band and Major McElligott were over the moon with the way we played, but it is heartening to read positive comments on the band's performance...

    BHk (UK) Ltd HORDEN BAND - Sept 2004 Students Welcome

    I don't think it was blown out of the water at all mate, you make a snide comment about my band/ ER apparently 'poaching' all the student players when nothing could be further from the truth. I merely pointed out that your old band has more students than us combined, thus proving your comment...

    BHk (UK) Ltd HORDEN BAND - Sept 2004 Students Welcome

    And who told you that exactly? I can think of at least 4 players off the top of my head from Durham Uni Band who play for Gateshead Brass! Only 3 play for Fishburn and 1 for Ever Ready, so Gateshead have more than us put together! :)

    Duets

    Just out of curiosity how did you change the ending??? Our baritone player dug it out last week, and it would be nice to have an alternative ending for those days when you just can't get a note above a G! :wink:

    Looking for a Tenor Horn Tutor

    If you can get to manchester easily enough then I would definitely consider contacting Lesley Howie. I travel down from Durham for lessons and she is a really great teacher! And a nice person too! Or contact any horn player with one of the top bands around there, would have thought they all give...

    Should definitely be worth a look. RVER program includes extracts from Festival Music, Paganini Variations, Year of the Dragon and others which I can't remember. Great selection of music. More importantly however, the uni band are kicking the concert off with a program including...

    Who make the better drivers...men or women?

    And I'm sure it had nothing to do with the bottle and half of wine you drank in Yates and the countless WKD's you had in Rixy's!!! :lol: Now now, just because I've been driving around with two bald tyres and dodgy brakes does not make me a bad driver!!! Minor problem with my skills! And if...

    hints and tips?

    Practise, practise and practise. I always had a poor upper register until I discovered the Vizzuti trumpet book, it has a really useful section on upper register and endurance. 10 minutes a day from that and you should see improvement in no time. I think the most important things to consider is...
