Flaming students.....


Hey folks.

I know my band has got a bit of a reputation for being full of students, but i was wondering how many there are in other bands?!

In Sellers we have 8 brass music students (sop,3+4th men, 1st+2nd horn, 2nd bari, top trom + bass trom) plus another 2 percussion (music?) students. All at Huds except top trom who's at rncm and bass trom is from salford.

I thought it might be a chortlingly good topic!

p.s. We don't talk to the 2nd horn, cos he does music tech and is clever.

If i went to the university brass band it would be entirely students but i dont so it isnt (well it is just that im not there)


Hey Deave, at Fishburn we have 3 students. Me on 2nd cornet whos finishing my Chinese and Japanese degree, solo horn whos doing biochemistry and one of our percussion players is doing modern languages. All of us are at Durham.

We have four students plus two youngsters of school age. One plays cornet, one plays percussion and two trombones - one of which is fairly addicted to this website! :lol:

I think I'm the only one! Tho maybe one of the percussionists is a student too? I dunno, he keeps himself to himself... unusual for a percussionist I know!


1 at Huds
1 at Chets
Pannell is at UMIST but its his last job on sun so that dont count.
We also have gary and Nick who used to be at Huds but have now taken up session playing (play then have a session afterwards at the Wooldale).
Come to think of it, i'm the only person at my band at uni. Hoppiebari (The Hepworthshire Poacher) must be losing his touch with the students at Huddersfield Uni! Thats flaming old age for you!

We have a fair few people who've been through the various music colleges. Currently though we have (I think) two at Salford, one at the RNCM (two more going there in September) and little old me at Manchester Uni doing some kindof weird none music thing! :?
