Mr RB wasn't allowed to learn an instrument at school because he got which was the high note and which was the low note wrong. He could tell which was which, but didn't know which term applied to which.

We have a tenor horn :-) I got a rental instrument rather than spending hundreds of quid on something I might not get on with, but I can get some notes out of it which is a start. Initially it felt blocked and I could only get a note by pressing a valve half down, but I twiddled the valve and it resolved the problem, so I guess all the bits where the tubes get changed by the valves had got out of whack. I have found some YouTubes. Mr RB sounds better than I do, but I think that's because I need to relax my embouchure more (probably too tight due to oboeing). It can't be heard outside the house, so my worries about annoying the neighbours are hopefully unfounded.

Yes, you'll need to relax the lips a bit. Try buzzing with just the mouthpiece to start off with, just to get the right feeling before putting it on the horn.

T's teacher uses the Standard of Excellence books, and I think there are accompaniment tracks on YouTube.

Got something to say?
