I would be lying if I said I was shocked. I had my run in with the Music Ed. Department at Oberlin a few different times. Ridiculous.


Mr. Butera told us that his board was all white and that he couldn’t diversify his board because they aren’t appointed but, rather, they are elected by the membership. Further, his membership isn’t diverse because, “Blacks and Latinos lack the keyboard skills needed for this field.” He also intimated that music theory is too difficult for them as an area of study. It seems that music education is on an order of magnitude of difficulty akin to medicine or law. Yet there are thousands and thousands of black and Latino doctors and lawyers.

Mr. Michael Butera, Executive Director and CEO of the National Association for Music Education.

Sending Peace + Love to everyone on this planet of ours. This song is so needed right now. Couldn't have done it without my music family and brothers Dookie Green, Jarrod Lawson and James Shelton.

I first met Mike Corrigan at the 2012 NAMM Show and he was not only super friendly and cool but he also made great beautiful horns. I also heard a lot about B.A.C. Horn Doctor from my trombone playing friends Saunders Sermons and Jeff Bradshaw and they had nothing but great things to say about Mike and the Company. I'm looking forward to trying out more of their horns and eventually getting one as well in the near future. See you all at the 2013 NAMM!!!!
