This is Nick’s second year with United Percussion as a part of our marimba line. His marching career began back in 2011 with North Penn High School’s indoor percussion ensemble. Since then, Nick has also marched with the Reading Buccaneers, Field of View Indoor Percussion Ensemble, and taught various groups in the area. He looks forward to teaching at Fusion Drum and Bugle Corps this summer. In addition to his involvement with the marching arts, Nick studies Music History and Clarinet at West Chester University, plays recorder in a medieval and renaissance ensemble at WCU, and works at Wawa. Nick brings an incredibly high level of musicianship to United Percussion with a side of sass and a constant drive to improve.
Here’s what Nick has to say about joining United:
I chose to march with United Percussion because it was one of few world class groups in the mid-Atlantic area, but more than that because many of my friends, colleagues, and role models had been involved in the organization. United is a place where I could hone my craft of mallet playing and pageantry performance with people that have become my closest friends. United has given me the world-class instruction and tools I needed to fuel my love for the art form that is marching percussion, and to share it with the young minds I teach. It's for these reasons that I returned this year and plan on marching my age-out season next year here.
