Snow at Windmill Farm

Snowfall and its effects...

Windmill Farm House

The view from the office window

Up here on our North Yorkshire hilltop, we're rather exposed to the weather and heavy snowfall means we're not always able to get to the office. We will always try to get here, even if we have to dig our way in and then dig ourselves out again to get home. If you call during office hours and get the answering machine, or email and don't hear from us as quickly as you would normally, it will probably be because of the weather.

Please be assured, though, that we will make every effort to keep June Emerson Wind Music running as smoothly as possible. Thank you for your patience and continued support!

Sax Day at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester - A Successful Day

We have returned from the 10th annual RNCM Sax Day. It was a well-attended day with sax players of all ages and standards taking part in the workshops, masterclasses, talks, recitals and concerts. We took along all our saxophone music – 44 boxes of it! – much to the delight of our customers who got a rare chance to spend time browsing through it all, discovering all sorts of new and interesting titles.

JEWM trade stand - 6 tables worth of sheet music

For us it was an exhausting day, as always, but we thoroughly enjoy going every year and this event was no exception. It was lovely to see some familiar faces and also to meet customers we’ve known for years by name, but have never met in person! The excitement and enthusiasm of all the sax players was infectious, and credit must go to Rob Buckland and Andy Scott who organise it and make it such a success every year.

We’re looking forward to the next one in 2011…!
