Welcome aboard!

We are Isabella and John, a couple of band instrument enthusiasts since our youth.

Saxophone players performing

Currently, as parents of two kids initiating their music careers, we are rediscovering everything related to instruments and music in general.

Join us in this quest while we uncover all questions and curiosities about bands and instruments, with informative articles we will be frequently posting on the blog.

We count on the collaboration of experienced players among the different band instruments, whether by writing or reviewing articles.
