What's new?
A roundup of the latest changes on this site – newest at the top

• The school year ends, but not without a lovely noisy seven-trumpets-and-drums tune on the Odds & Ends page. Plus a note, on the same page, about what this website will do next.

• Also at Odds & Ends I've added a wonderful performance, by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, of George Gershwin's jazz classic Summertime.

• All ready to go at Odds & Ends is Dvořák's extremely famous and popular Largo from his New World Symphony. With high and low note versions in this special Canonbury Collectors' Edition.

An article about keeping safe when using this site – learn to look out for the ❗ which warns you when you are leaving it.

Our next article is about the sad and confusing fact that our cornet and tenor horn notes don't match the flute, violin or piano unless someone does a bit of fixing-upping … no, it's not that bad, we can cope!
