    Do You Need To Be Grade 6 Or Above To Play In A Top Brass Band?

    I did ok with grade 4... I think most bands recruit by having players sit in for a blow, after all you are looking for someone to join a team. Less importantly I guess you need someone who will fit into the culture of the band.

    Area Pieces 2012

    The English Folk Song Suite is one of my all time favourites - great music in there. It is almost enough to make me want to come out of retirement and play in the 4th section next year!

    Most satisfying test piece you have played?

    I have to agree with Tallis Variations, and would also add in Between the Moon and Mexico by the same composer which I loved both rehearsing and playing out. Another piece that I enjoyed from start to finish was Passacaglia on a Theme of Brahms by Butterworth, which was a 1st section area...

The aforementioned Dr W did some work on the valves for me a few years back which made substantial improvements to the playing. I have not really played any of the other models and makes available, so can't comment...

    Rumour mill. Bob Childs & York rumblings.

    Not the kind of diet to recommend either... the guy has been dead for nearly three years! Seriously though, I for one am looking forward to hearing the oboe solo in the area test piece
