    Rise and Fall of Brass Bands

    Having been around banding for more years than I care to admit to, it amazes me at the naivety that still exists in brass bands. Most want success, whatever level that may be at. Some only feel successful if they're part of the top section ethos. This is where many bands fall down. If you're...

    Plenty of Horn Players ????

    I was wondering if there was an 'abundance' of horn players.....and why that was. If you look at the recruitment on either here or 4barsrest, it's not very often that bands advertise for horn players.......why is that???

    First Impressions

    Have you ever been told by someone that their first impression of you was totally different to the one they have of you once they got to know you? And I'm not just talking about the natural characteristics that you learn about someone with time. Is there an aura around people that they are...

    Positive 'Review'

    Most of us know what it is like to read through adjudicators remarks after a contest. There can be some positive comments made, but mostly, the little slips are pointed out to us. At a concert, we often get people coming to us to say how much they enjoyed the concert, and it is nice to hear...

    Online Services - Excellent or Worrying?

    Just applied for my tax disc renewal online. Absolutely brilliant. No more queueing in the Post Office, no more scrambling around trying to find out the Insurance Certificate and MOT. It took about 3 minutes. As long as you have the new MOT certificate then all you need is the renewal form...

    Playing in a 2nd Band

    I was just wondering what it was like for those of you who play in 2 bands. ie, you're registered band, and a band that does not contest. I love being a part of my band, obviously, but being as involved as I am, often adds pressure, lots of it! So you don't always get to 'enjoy' concerts...

    Improving Your Playing V Age

    Is there an age limit on improving your playing? It might sound a ridiculous question to some, but I've given this a lot of thought and I still haven't found the answer! I've seen (and known) a lot of players over the years who in their 20s and 30s were excellent players, then in their 40s...

    After spending over an hour trying to embrace 'new technology' it suddenly occured to me how much time we must spend searching the internet for things when one simple phone call would have dealt with my enquiry! :mad: After clicking on the links on a post about new music, I came across a...
