    'ey up!

    I'm Pat from Columbus, OH 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!

    Hope the trip back to the US was as incident free as possible, Pat. I was kinda hoping for a last "hi" at a random contest somewhere before you went back...ah well.

    Y'all be sure to look us up the next time you come over the big pond. :biggrin:

    This just'll notice that my username has been changed to reflect the fact that I am now playing Eb bass in the Brass Band of Columbus!! :D

    That year of bass playing in the UK paid off!! ;)
