About Me


My name is Nick and I am a Senior Sales Representative at Music & Arts. I love music, and I especially love band. I play tuba mainly (ask me about it if you want a long talk!), but I play saxophone, trombone, and every other instrument in a concert band as well. I am studying to become an instrument repair technician which I am really excited for. I'm hoping to study tuba performance at Western this coming year. I look forward to meeting you in the store!
