    It's been a while!

    Hi fellow tMPers, Not sure if this is the right place to write this but I'm quite excited to say that for the first time in about 7 years or so, I'll be back in Yorkshire over the areas period and so I'll be looking forward to seeing St George's Hall once more like old times :D It's also a...

    Which Trumpet?

    Hi tMpers, I'm looking to get a trumpet (yes, shock horror - how dare I mention the T word in a brass band forum ;) ). I'd like an 'all rounder'. I.e. something wholesome that will feature well in jazz and orchestra (the O word!). Can someone recommend a decent brand? At this point, I'm mainly...

    Does poaching exist?

    Yes, although I wouldn't call this poaching, it is a similar issue. Perhaps in this case, the band would be considered guilty of 'using and abusing' a player. I've known that to happen to band friends of mine and its not nice.

    Does poaching exist?

    Poaching is a dirty word in banding, but does it actually exist? Being approached by another band and being asked to play for them is deemed as ‘poaching’, however inevitably it is down to the decision of the player in question. I believe the mantra “you can’t poach a happy player” is a good...

    Soloist Prizes

    I won one, but didn't get the choice whether I kept it or not!! That said, if I did I would have put it behind the bar for the band because that way everybody wins :biggrin: You could always do the 'split it half and half' if it's a cash prize.:rolleyes:

    The flugel is not a real instrument

    oo yes please! Are you today's server? My music degree has given me so much musically, intellectually. Opportunities to go overseas, awards, transferrable skills, so much, listing it all is a mammoth task and I am sure other musos will agree. I am all the richer for it. :biggrin:

    The flugel is not a real instrument

    ouch!! FEW exceptions? I'm afraid I have to disagree. Perhaps your experiences have been different. Speaking personally, flugel has been my main instrument on which (without blowing my own trumpet, da dum Cha!) I have technique, endurance (and although it could be improved, range). Flugel was...

    The flugel is not a real instrument

    Hi all The above statement (title of thread) is NOT a representation of my views just to clarify! My friend works for a music company over here in New Zealand and they come out with the most ridiculous statements and requests from their workers, the above being one of them! Another quote...

    Foods that are less than the sum of their parts

    Kiwi fruit chocolate....<shudders> Whittakers (a confectionery company here in NZ) makes this. Pieces of real kiwi fruit are put in milk chocolate, just like your fruit and nut e.g. One of their best apparently. But I would like to say.... ...the two should NEVER meet.....!!!! UGH!!!:eek:

    Playing things through

    Playing things through

    Oh dear!! I've had similar experiences where upon rehearsing a piece, there are set places a conductor will ALWAYS stop regardless. One particular thing I've noticed is the conductor rehearses the bit he wants quite a lot of times, then starts the whole band, the rehearsed section gets played...

    Playing things through

    I've been to a few band rehearsals in my time and one of the main things that really makes me enjoy a rehearsal is when a conductor allows the band to play the music through from top to bottom, as well as efficiently rehearsing the music. On the opposite side of that, I find it quite...

    I want to play...

    I might not make the contest to play (unless you're REALLY desperate, seeing as I'm available from about 13th May!) but I'd certainly like to come for a blow at Skelmanthorpe too if I can!!

    Brighouse to recruit women

    Normally I would be 'yeah, let the women in, great idea'. But in this case I find myself having an abnormal stance on the subject. It is the last band to let women in. If it was the ONLY top section band in the country and no women were allowed, I would think it unfair. But it's not like there...

    Landscape Architect?

    I'm pretty sure it's what I'd like to do as a career so I'm trying to get as much info on it as possible - find out what it's like, the type of person who does it etc. It'll be a big step as I'll need to retrain and I want to find out (as far as is possible) whether it's going to be the right...
