Making music fun in east anglia



8th July, 2011 - July Newsletter

Summer Break

The band will be taking a break over the summer holidays. Final practice will be on the 29th of July with band starting again on the 2nd of September (just before the schools start back).

During this time, please ensure you keep your instrument in good working order. Give it a good clean (bath it in warm soapy water), and ensure the valves and slides are lubricated. It may also be wise to look at replacing springs and pads where appropriate. Speak to a bandleader if you are unsure what you should be doing.
