    Euph and Horn in need of a home

    Hi there, me (euph) and my partner (horn) are looking for a new band. I'm previously solo euph of Hade Edge and Lindley, and have helped out top section bands (Marsden, Sellers, YBS, Imps to name a few ...) on many an occasion. I'm also a graduate of Hudds Uni, and hence the uni Brass Band...

    March Book

    Hi, for as long as I can remember, I've never been that great stylistically at playing marches. And I came to the rather unsuprising conclusion that this is because I don't practice them. So I'm looking at purchasing some music to remedy this. Trouble is, where from? I'm pretty good at hymn...

    Tenor Horn SOS

    Hi there guys. My girlfriend recently had an "accident" with her horn, and it is in for repair for at least a couple of weeks. The problem is, she has her final recital in a month and needs to practice. We're currently not attached to any bands and previous bands we have rang round haven't...

    Tongueing Difficulties

    Hi there folks. I'm suffering a little bit as of late with my tongueing. When I take a breath, quite often I tighten up unintentionally and I find it very difficult to release my tongue and the air, and when I do it's often very erratic, unpleasant, and late. It doesn't always affect me...

    A March Overture - Stuart Johnson

    Hi, I'm currently running through A March Overture by Stuart Johnson at band, however, it appears we are short of a score despite having a full compliment of parts. Does anyone know who I should be looking to contact in order to try and replace this errant score? Or does anyone know how to...

    Euphonium/Baritone, West Yorkshire, Championship

    As my band (Hade Edge, Yorkshire 1st Section) are currently on holiday I'm looking to keep my lip in and keep up my playing. I'll be looking mostly to help out for bands requiring deps for rehearsals (something I seem to do more and more nowadays!) but I'm also prepared to do concerts if...

    Shenandoah arrangement sought

    Hey, I'm looking for an arrangement of the song "Shenandoah" for Brass Band that I can use with my band. However, I am looking for a specific arrangement that I played with my old youth band before I moved to Huddersfield. Problem is, I haven't got a clue who arranged it! So, to see if anyone...

    HADE EDGE BAND - TV show starting tonight!

    Hey, for anyone who remembers, the TV show about the Hade Edge Band starts tonight! Yorkshire top-section bands I'm sure will remember the cameras staring at them during the areas! It is being aired on ITV Yorkshire at 7:30pm for FIVE-WEEKS. I've seen it all, and it's good! Worth a watch...

    An unusual problem

    I'm currently recovering from what was a particularly nasty cold, and now I have what can only be described as a sore tongue. While being fairly irritating on its own, I'm still able to play my euph, but heavy tonguing, and in particular, double-tonguing is causing me severe discomfort...

    Opinions so far

    Well, I've seen 1st and 2nd sections play so far - and the results have almost stunned me! Both winning bands deserved their victory, but personally I felt both Holme Silver in 1st section and in particular Hebdon Bridge in the 2nd section were under-placed. What are your thoughts so far?

    Recording search

    Considering this isn't directly band related I thought I'd post it here. In December I played in a concert with my uni Wind Orchestra and we played a piece called Aurora by Thomas Doss to finish. Brilliant piece IMO. Anyway, I've been searching the net for a recording of it without success...

    Area Opinions

    Was just wondering what everyones opinion was on the area test pieces as a whole? Not as how hard they are, or whether they're appropriate for the various sections, but what you think of them as pieces of music. I ask mainly because there are examples in the past of test pieces which have...

    Euphonium mouthpiece question(s)

    I have a few questions to ask regarding my euphonium mouthpiece. Currently I use a Bach 6.5AL ... about 18 months ago I got it because it was a good size and I could get one with a smaller shank for my trombone. However, recently I have been looking around with a view to buying a new...

    Sold/Expired Euphonium for Sale (Shropshire Area)

    Since I moved to university shortly after getting my Sovereign Euphonium, my parents have been left with the task of selling my old instrument. Suffice to say they need a little help. The instrument is a 4-valved, non-compensating Besson 700 which served me through my grades 6 and 8 (both...
