Back on the Bandwagon

First rehearsal back this term with the Training Band (part of Charnwood concert bands). That one is not too demanding on my playing but it is convenient, because Jane also attends with her clarinet, it helps the group and those learning with it out and it gives me a chance to practise reading simple parts written at pitch. I’ve got to get that skill down so I don’t flounder when something is called in other contexts which I’ve not had a chance to transpose.

I almost set off for a rehearsal last Sunday evening with the Charnwood Symphonic Wind Orchestra but, fortunately, realised in time that this group doesn’t resume until next Sunday. Most of the parts (emphasis on most) still don’t stretch my overall playing ability too much but the sight reading there is definitely on a steep learning curve.
