Septem Juncta In Uno – Seven Joined As One
The band was formed in 1981 and is made up of former musicians from the seven regiments of Her Majesty’s Household Division Bands namely:- The Life Guards, Blues and Royals (now the Household Cavalry Band), Grenadiers, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards Bands. The present Household Division Musicians Association Band follows a long tradition of music making by musicians from these famous regiments.
Most of the members are still playing in leading London Orchestras, London Theatres, or teaching in music colleges and schools throughout the country.
The Band performs at numerous public and private engagements, most notably The Chelsea Flower Show, Eastbourne Bandstand, and at The Royal Hospital Chelsea. The Band rehearses at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, with which it is proud to be associated.
The band rehearses once a month on a Sunday morning from 10.30am – 12.30pm at The Band Room at The Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Director of Music: David Vaninetti-Smart FLCM
David began his musical career at the age of 13 as a trombonist for Barnstaple Town Military Band and Bideford Town Brass Band. In 1987, he joined the Army and was posted to the Band of the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment. During his two years at the Royal Military School of Music, David took a change of course, studying flute and classical piano under Graham Mayger and Veronica Clayton respectively. It was while he was at Kneller Hall that David discovered his passion for writing band arrangements.
After postings to Northern Ireland and Cyprus in the early nineties, David successfully passed an audition for the Life Guards Band of the Household Cavalry. During a series of summer concerts for the Household Cavalry band, David was persuaded by the Director of Music to take yet another musical change: he became the principal oboist of the Band, a position that he held until he left the army in 1998. During his military service he has performed all around the world, playing for all the members of the Royal Family, The Lord Mayor of London, as well as countless Ambassadors and diplomats.
X/Y Recording Made Simple
The Zoom H1 Digital Field Recorder’s built-in X/Y microphone provides two matched unidirectional microphones set at a 90 degree angle relative to one another, optimum for most stereo recording applications. For X/Y or other types of recording, you can connect a pair of external microphones or line level signal to the H1’s Mic/Line Input mini phone jack.
The Ins and Outs
The H1 Mic/Line Input is a stereo ⅛” mini phone jack that can accept two mic- and/or line-level signals. Condenser microphones requiring Plug-In Power (2.5 volts) can be connected to this jack. The H1 Line/Headphones Output is a stereo ⅛” phone jack with a dedicated volume control. Headphones can be connected here for private monitoring. There’s also a built-in speaker on the back panel for fast monophonic monitoring of the recorded signal without the need to make any connections. The H1’s USB port provides a digital output of the stereo mix and allows data to be sent to and from your computer. From there, it can be imported into editing software such as the supplied WaveLab LE. It also allows the H1 to be used as a 2-in/2-out audio interface and USB microphone, as well as a microSD card reader.
Auto Level and Low Cut Filter
Overload and distortion are prevented with the H1’s Auto Level function that sets input gain automatically (input level can be set manually, too). The H1 also provides a built-in low cut filter for the elimination of pops, wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low frequency rumble.
WAV and MP3 Support
The Zoom H1 records audio in both WAV and MP3 formats. The WAV files recorded by the H1 can be either 16- or 24-bit, with sampling rates of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz, and are automatically time-stamped, making them Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant – ideal for journalists and other professional media.
Battery Life and Recording
The H1 Digital Field Recorder requires just a single AA battery – offering up to 10 hours of operation, even during continuous recording. You can also power the H1 from any standard wall socket using the optional AD-17 AC adapter. The H1 records directly to microSD and microSDHC cards, up to 32 gigabytes.
High Quality Video Audio
The compact, lightweight H1 is perfect for use on a video or DSLR camera. The remarkable depth and clarity of sound achieved by the stereo X/Y mic design brings additional realism and depth to HD video. By combining the H1 with a DSLR video camera, you can create a professional video system with high-quality sound.
Included Accessory Pack
Additionally, the Zoom H1 comes with a useful bunch of accessories that allows you to get the most out of the Zoom H1 recorder. Included is a windscreen that minimises wind noise in demanding weather conditions, helping to retain the audio quality from the H1. The adjustable desktop tripod stabilises your recorder when on the move, or at home, and minimises handle noise to ensure clean recordings. The soft case ensures protection for your H1 during transport and storage. The accessory pack also includes an AC adapter, USB cable, and mic stand clip adapter, allowing you to charge the recorder, and seamlessly transfer files onto a computer or storage device.

At the beginning of 2016, I had an idea that I wanted to do something digitally/online that would help fellow musicians and be something that I could give back to the industry. My legacy if you like.
Now, I had no idea what it would be or how to do it so I set about learning the tech, digital marketing and website building. This was quite daunting for this fifty-something dinosaur but I quickly discovered that this modern sorcery was actually pretty easy. (Big thanks to DBL and SFM )
Hence, Freedom for Musicians was born. To be honest, the early manifestation of FFM was quite embarrassing in hindsight with no real identity and clumsy tech. However, I persevered and we now have a thriving online music magazine, independent record label and growing community of nearly 5000 musicians worldwide. FFM has Ambassadors representing Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Canada, India, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Italy, USA, UK, Jersey CI and Indonesia. My initial concept has come a long way in a very short amount of time and I am immensely proud of our achievements so far,
Our focus now is to serve our members through publishing their music, videos and blogs. We advertise their products and services and release their music digitally in all stores world wide.
Please take a few moments to check out Freedom for Musicians as it now exists:

Learn from the best.
Everyone starts playing trumpet at different ages, but we all start as beginners. From the first cracked note to all three movements of the Haydn Trumpet Concerto, teachers from all around the world skillfully nurture their students’ talent on the trumpet.
TRUMPET PLACE is a website dedicated to bring trumpet students and teachers together in a collaborative space. It seems that many trumpet players in school don’t take lessons, simply because they can’t find a teacher!
If you’re a trumpet player, TRUMPET PLACE is the new online trumpet hub for students, teachers, and performing players throughout the United States. The mission of this website is to provide an affordable listing tool for teachers, so that they can keep doing what they do best: teaching the next generation of trumpet players how to fanfare, flutter, and feel that jazzy rhythm.
One of the most difficult parts of being a trumpet teacher is finding private students. It seems that less and less musicians go into private teaching because not enough students want to take private lessons. The truth is, they don’t know where to find us!
Whether you choose to teach virtually or in person, TRUMPET PLACE provides the platform for students to find you where you are. Help parents learn about your location, your schooling, credentials, and any other information to help them make a decision.
You’ll even get your own fancy webpage, right here at TrumpetPlace.com!
“JillaBeatz aka DJ Jilla-J (A.J.) developed a passion for music at an early age. He started out with a radio/dual cassette player and was sampling & looping in the ’90’s. That evolved into writing rhymes and from ’95 thru ’98 he has numerous recordings on tapes & cds. Got heavily into production, recording, mixing and editing…… all I ask of you is to take a moment of your time and just listen to his latest project”
“Though there is too much poverty, too many wars, too much hatred and divisiveness in the world, we believe that with love, understanding, kindness, compassion, warmth, respect and humaneness, this beautiful world of ours could be a much better place for every woman, man, child and all of the animals, creatures and nature that live on our planet.”

East Sussex County Council are proposing to cut the instrumental service.
East Sussex Music provides music tuition for over 7000 children in 92% of East Sussex schools.
More than 3000 children have tuition from the instrumental service. Their inspirational teachers enable children from low income backgrounds, from rural areas, in challenging circumstances or with special educational needs or disability to learn. Their progress and achievement in learning an instrument and participating with others also helps them develop life skills to enable them grow their aspirations in all walks of life .
Thousands of lives have been inspired and transformed by this service. Don’t let our children pay for East Sussex County Council’s financial choices brought about by government cuts to public services.
What can you do?
