Last Saturday afternoon 18 people met together to have a go at playing the plastic Pbones (the first ever plastic Pbones trumpet in the world).
Steve and Chris came to lead the session showed us how to assemble the Pbones and who to hold them. The ages varied from 7 through to 80, and what fun they had, trying to blow and make a noise.
Some were really loud, and some were very quiet, it all depended how you pursed your lips on the mouthpiece and how much puff you had!! We learnt to find D, E, moving the sliding mechanism up and down to create different sounds and learnt some simple tunes. Everyone had a great time and Paul and Chris were very patient.
A well-earned rest at time with a drink before the second part started. Off we went again Chris introducing another note F and played another tune.
By the end of the session everyone was tired but they all had a great time having ago. Thank you to Steve and Chris for leading the group and teaching us how to play and we hope they will come again and do another session for us.
