    Oldham (Lees) Band in concert with David Thornton and Richard Marshall - 17 April

    Haha!! I was warned I would "lose it a little" when I have the baby - Im not sure what my present dizzyness is down to now (Im not sure being pregnant is 100% to blame either - I don't think I have ever been "all there"!)

    Oldham (Lees) Band in concert with David Thornton and Richard Marshall - 17 April

    Certainly - I am not sure these are ALL the pieces the band played, my memory isn't what it used to be ;) David Thornton played Variations on Rule Britannia and Nessun Dorma and Richard Marshall played The Nightingale and the cornet solo Muschla (apologies – I have probably spelt that wrong!)...

    Oldham (Lees) Band in concert with David Thornton and Richard Marshall - 17 April

    Hopefully it will encourage people to come!! £8 is a bargain to see both Richard Marshall and David Thornton perform - and of course the money is going to the running costs and prize fund for Whit Friday, which I am sure many tMP-ers will be eager to try and win! :clap: (I understand...

    Oldham (Lees) Band in concert with David Thornton and Richard Marshall - 17 April

    I have been advised tickets are £8 on the door and they are also available at local shops in the Lees and Springhead area if you would like to buy in advance. I hope this helps :)

    Tameside 2010

    Steve, I suggest you read the Brass at the Guild 2010 thread for a full explanation of this, rather than another thread get side tracked with the reasons for one band not doing what everyone else expects them to do. It just not worth another wasted thread over it...in the nicest possible...

    Brass At The Guild 2010.. who's going?

    The three players I saw who were upset had all won 5 consecutive area contests by the age of 17 - is that something you can boast Billy? I don't think you are even sure of what your case is. Well said Keith. Billy obviously has no real point he is trying to make - merely putting down the...

    "Cheating" at contests

    If an MD takes a movement faster or slower as they think it makes it feel better, they don’t always get pulled up for not being the exact tempo marked on the score although technically its wrong – it’s how it sounds/feels and as long as it fits musically then there usually isn’t a problem and...

    Regionals 2010 : First Section Test Piece - Moorside Suite

    Like some people above have said - its not just the notes on the page (or for bass trombone, lack of) but also the MUSIC - something I think people seem to forget. Music isn't just the notes, it is the pictures it conjours in your head, the emotion the music makes you feel. There might be...

    Brass At The Guild 2010.. who's going?

    I wasn't aware you could appeal - or surely if this was the case as you suggest, it would have been overturned, as you stated, if you win a few times you get promoted - like at the national contests? I dont understand these rules at all - how can you find out which bands have appealed to stay...

    Playing advice/help

    I hope you get this sorted - try not to get yourself too stressed about it as you'll only make yourself worse with worry :) as with the majority of comments here say, you need to see a teacher who can be there to see you play or you are stabbing in the dark. It may turn out to be a 'mental'...
