Welcome Mr. Bojangles, great name, great tune.

Best of luck with your grade 5 Jazz exam, would that be with Trinity College? My teacher is pushing me, squeaking and squawking, towards my grade 6 Jazz exam. We've not discussed when I'm doing it, I'm thinking in about 5 years but I suspect she might have different ideas. Billie's Bounce is proving to be a bit awkward at the moment.

Best wishes,

Chris

I admire anyone that can knuckle down and do grades! I find the idea of music theory scary! I can't read music and although I've really tried, I don't think I ever will.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your future sax life!

Thanks guys for your prompt replies. Have started this year from square one, never played any instrument before or read music but always been interested in listening to most kinds of music. I think I'm picking up the reading and understanding of it all pretty well considering, but obviously have got a long way to go. Its good to read about so many like minded people. It 's the Trinity College I'm hoping to take my grades with.
