About Holly Sims

Hello! I'm a current music education student at Western Kentucky University studying double bass. I'm involved with marching band, pep band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, and symphonic orchestra. I'm involved in WKU's collegiate ASTA organization and also the vice president of WKU's NAfME collegiate organization. I have studied under Wes Jones, Patrick O'Rourke, and Rafael Velez.
