I do a music camp in the summer in Guernsey (sister island), it's a great laugh and if anyone under 19 would like to come you're more than welcome, wind bands and orchestras only though! Pm me if u want details.

Hey Aidan - will you be seeing Nigel Weeks when you're in NZ...? He used to conduct Tredegar Band many years ago as well as the Gwent Youth Band. A well regarded and respected brass tutor he is, if you see him, say "Hi" from me yeah?

Good to see I'm not the only chemist on here.

Instead of thinking up something original to write, I thought it might be easier if I just posted my biog from the last concert I did.

"David Sait joined the University of Warwick in 1998, and graduated last summer with a Masters in Chemistry. Unable to stay away, he is now studying for his PhD in Controlled Polymer Synthesis.
Having played with a variety of ensembles whilst at Warwick, the Brass Band has become his major interest, leading to an unhealthy obsession with contesting (and hence, beer).
A previous President of the Brass Society, Dave has played cornet, flugel and percussion with the band, and now also plays regularly with City of Coventry Brass, as well as helping other local bands when the need arises.
Dave has had lessons in recent years with Bill Thompson and Simon Lenton, and cites his favourite composer as Philip Wilby"

So, that just about covers it!

In the light of the review of the Northern Regional Contest in this month's Brass Band World (p19) I'd like to update my 'what I do when not at band' list. According to their reviewer (who is a Shakespeare of BB journalists) I am both 'enigmatic' and a 'fashion guru'.

All who know me will doubtless agree.

Thats exactly what I was thinking during our chat before we went on stage. " I wish i had a good a dress sense as that" and "WOW what an enigma"

Well here's another student who does very little other than doss around / drink / sleep / eat junk food / spend money etc etc.!

I'm on my 2nd year of Physics with Acoustics at Salford Uni, and spend hours hanging around (and living with) the bandies on the music course. I play in the uni band at Salford too, and i'm told i'm an honorary music student (is that a compliment or an insult?!). Next year i'm hoping to take an industry year working in acoustics consultancy (well it sounds impressive!) :D

Gareth, honey, have you been on the sherry trifle again????

I think we should be worried about the guy from BBW - maybe he needs an eye test!!!

Who was the reporter David....Michael Foot?!?! (You need to be pushing 40 to get that)
Out of band activities? Working, sleeping or practising I guess.
I do occasionally fly-fish, walk the dogs and shoot furry animals, but mostly just the former.
