As you may have guessed from the blog name I’m a band geek.  I received my bachelors degree in music education from Otterbein University (it was college while I was there).  Since then I’ve been playing in a number of community bands in the Columbus area and even in New Orleans.

I own an Allora model 181 which was purchased approximately 6 years ago. It’s served me well these past 6 years.  Someday I’m sure I’ll move on to something bigger and better but till then I have to say that this horn does a pretty nice job.
