    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Waving your arms in front of a band - it can really make or break!

    I'm busy busy preparing for an amateur theatre production of Brassed Off. (It starts on Friday) I'm acting and playing which is great fun. (For those of you who know me, you'll guess which part I'm playing!) Now, we've got non-musical people standing in front of the band and waving their...

    The little things in life

    I just had a few moments and got to thinking about little things for which I'm very grateful. (I'm probably stating the obvious but I thought I'd say it anyway!) Books - books are brilliant. They're portable, don't use power and they're always ready when you are to provide nice quiet...

    The UK - a tolerant and mutually respectful country?

    I have been reading about possible suggestions for the UK to ban the wearing of Burkhas in public. However the latest article on the bbc website quotes the immigration minister Damien Green who says it's 'unbritish' to consider such a move. He also states that the UK is a 'tolerant and mutually...

    Another political thread....

    I happened to read an article on the proposals of what Gordon Brown would do if he stayed in power. What he said was actually a decent proposal and something we would like to see happen. But politicians only say these things to get into power. I'm talking in a general sense and not focussing...

    I seem to have developed a high pitched ringing in my right ear. I noticed it a few days ago and its still going. At band recently I have been wincing when the band, particularly the cornets, plays high and loud. I'm really worried that it'll be permanent and also, if it has been caused by...

    Hi all I'm looking for ideas for a duet for cornet pitch with euphonium pitch (flugels,baritone eg) which are alone or with piano accomp. Ideally it should be fairly hard - championship standard. We played Carnival Duet last year if anyone knows that as a point of reference as to what we're...
