About Me

Greetings! My name is Derek and wear a few hats at Music and Arts! I am the District Retail Manager, School Services District Manager for Upstate NY as well as being the Educational Rep for the Liverpool School District. 

My main instrument is electric bass but I also play piano and guitar. I have played in many bands and styles including Jazz, Rock, Alternative, and played with schools for their musicals. I started playing electric bass in 1988 and had my first "gig" when I was 13 years old. Recently you could see me playing bass in musicals at East Syracuse, Westhill, Jamesville Dewitt, and Port Byron.

I have a B.A degree in Music Business from SUNY Oneonta  where I learned about the recording and retail business. I learned how to use recording software like Pro Tools, and Digital performer.
