I do sometimes think the formation slightly strange, as the quieter instruments are so close to the back. so often on band recordings or concerts, i struggle to hear the horns come through, so i know its not just me as a player that the conductor struggles to hear! so why are they so far into...
gettin worried- i heard that no band had received the music yet after all the mistakes were getting sorted, but looking at some of this a lot of you have been practicing already!! apols if already said in the thread (i havent read it all at all), but surely some of us are going to be going with...
can someone help me please.
i cant access hotmail or msn or anything like that. is there something wrong with it at the mo or is it my old old old old computer??
everytime i type it, a page comes up to say it doesnt exist, and offers to search for it, which if i then click the link it still...
what do you do?
Given that traditionally brass bands were linked to mines and so a lot of people in bands were miners, i was wondering how things looked now.
Ive never done a poll on here before, and wouldnt necessarily know how to do it/add headings, but i just thought it would be kinda...
i dont know what grade it is, but i would suggest Rondo from Mozarts horn concerto. great piece, and its not too too hard. especially as so much is repeated you only really need to learn half the piece! and im pretty certain it doesnt get above a top G.
yep, id agree too. need some time off! ive often been amazed at how much better my tone is after a while off than if id been playing loads.
also, i remember when i was younger, my teacher would sometimes compliment me and say he could tell id been practicing. not that i practiced that much...
duh, i was just trying to work out what your playing V age was!!
interesting thread tho!
i know time obvisouly is a major issue, for practice and stuff like that. but doesnt the lip just change with age so that when ppl get older they wont be as good/cant get as high etc?
my teacher was great!
i remember him once telling me at school that he knew i could and would be the best horn player in the county. i thought that was such an encouraging and "wow" thing for him to say that it really motivated me!!
but what if you're a band who do do quite a lot of concerts, and have a wide repertoire of stuff which you can play well. ie you wouldnt perform any better if the programme was publicised before the concert?
If talking just about getting commitment better, i think a lot depends on the man in the middle. no one wants to go somewhere where they are going to get shouted at, and be shown no respect. they would be prepared to do that for the sake of the many other benefits of enjoying their hobby, but...
Kalms or Quiet Life (herbal remedies) are specially designed for periods of stress or anxiety! theyre great (tho they do take a few days to get going i find) especially helpful if you find you are not sleepin well at night.
