  Welcome to my homepage. My name is Alan Wolfe. I am  a native Miamian. I am the music teacher, Band Director and Ham (amateur) Radio Club sponsor at Royal Palm Elementary School, Miami, Florida U.S.A. I am a former police officer (see photo below), as well as WEBMASTER for the school web site and the MIAMI'S TOP BRASS QUINTET site. My primary responsibility is the teaching of the basic skills needed to play musical instruments and to sing musically.

 Amateur Radio Club  members communicate with people around the world via Amateur Radio.  We operate on 10-40 meters. Our club meets each Friday at 1500UTC. This time varies due to school construction. The students are also studying the necessary material needed to pass the Tech Plus Amateur Radio exam. Take a look at the link (above) to our school Amateur Radio Club page. I have been a licensed (Advanced Class) ham radio operator for over 30 years. I enjoy operating phone (voice) as well as CW (morse code) and Packet (digital radio).

I am the principal trumpet player in the Greater Miami Symphonic Band and in Miami's Top Brass Quintet. MTB recently made our first digital recording. We were pleased with the results. The members of our group are Marjorie Hahn, French Hornist and Business Manager, Steve Gardner, Trombone, George Walters, Trumpet, David Collings, Tuba, and Alan Wolfe, Trumpet

During the summer of 1997 I toured Eastern and Central Europe, performing in ancient cathedrals, palaces and concert halls (SEE NEW IMAGES BELOW). Among my favorite cities were Budapest and Prague. The antiquity of the structures in Europe was awesome. Traveling via train in Europe was a new and exciting experience.

From 1991-1996 I  served as host/producer of a locally syndicated television series named "Snapshot". In 1993 I M.C.'d the "Junior Orange Bowl Parade" Telecast, aired on many TV stations via the SUNSHINE NETWORK.

It is frequently very hot and humid in Miami, Florida. Our summer usually begins in late April and extends well into October. The temperature here often rises to more than 95°F during the summer months. Miami-Dade County is the home of more fatal lightning strikes than any other place on the planet.
