'ey up! I'm Pat from Columbus, OH USA...one of the few but growing number of tMPers from across the pond. I am currently a graduate student in the doctoral programme for science education at The Ohio State University. I had taught science the past 9 years. I started playing baritone & trombone when I was 16 (bass clef originally) and since then have played everything between BBb bass and tenor horn (inclusive) mostly in the USA. However, I did spend a year living and teaching by Watford, Herts where I was a member of the Welwyn Garden City Band and have depped in bands from 4th - champsionship section from all across Great Britain. In my spare time I am a recovering band tart and like to moan at Bunnies. I am also quite good at driving my wife, Diana, a fellow baritone player, quite mad!
