    This past Spring, I attended my first British brass band workshop, sponsored annually by The Canadian Band Association (Ontario). (luckily, I play Treble Clef). While there, I noticed all of the instrumentation but didn't really understand their function - until now.
    I always learn something as I read your Forum. Thanks!

  3. I had just posted a link to a PDF version of that article in a baritone mouthpiece thread yesterday! Great minds think alike I suppose!

    jkircoff - I can credit you for the inspiration. I didn't know about the article until your post, so I approached the Dublin band and Mr. Jameson right away for permissions to turn it into a web page article. It's a perfect fit for the Articles section and is quite (painlessly) educational.

    I am pleased and honored that I was able to contribute to your outstanding article section in an indirect way Dave!

  6. Great article. Though I have been playing in British brass bands since the summer of 2008, I first heard/saw this essential information presented by Helen Harrelson at the first NABBSS in 2014 (?). In fact, Grant Jameson was at that session as an attendee and part of the RWCMD brass band featured at the Halifax Tattoo. It is wonderful that as a result of attending the IBBSS since that first summer of 2008, I have had the opportunity to study under, perform with, listen to, and share beers at the pub with just about every musician on Grant's list. VERY good advice/explanations from Grant.
