He majored in Music Education at the University of South Alabama playing flute. After college Harper ran a now defunct Record Store for 13 years and had an on again off again run at public radio station WHIL. Along the way he picked up the bass and guitar and has been playing professionally since 1997 with as many bands as will let him. In 2003 he began teaching music to 1st and 2nd graders through the Mobile Symphony's "Preludes" program which he still does happily today when he's not on the road playing gigs. His Symphony duties have expanded recently to include Webmaster, Box Office assistant, and Symphony photographer, more on that can be found on the other side of our website.
