United is again excited to announce another addition to our staff. Nick Graziano will be a part of our 2019 Staff as a Front Ensemble Technician.

Nick Graziano is a proud alum of United Percussion and has been teaching and arranging for front ensembles of all levels since 2013. Originally from Lansdale, Pennsylvania, Nick got his start competing in North Penn High School's Marching Knights and indoor percussion ensemble. His performance experience since then includes two summers with the Reading Buccaneers, a season with Field of View Indoor Percussion, and three seasons with United Percussion.

As an educator, Nick has had the pleasure of working with numerous organizations including North Penn High School, Spring-Ford High School, Cab Calloway School of the Arts, Boyertown Senior High School, and Fusion Core Drum and Bugle Corps. Currently, he works for Marple-Newtown High School as Assistant Percussion Director/Front Ensemble Coordinator. Nick received a bachelors in Music History from West Chester University of Pennsylvania last fall and will be pursuing graduate studies in Music Business next fall.

Nick was an outstanding member of United Percussion while he was able to be, and we see a very smooth transition for him onto our teaching staff. His experience teaching and working with students scholastically, along with his unique set of collegiate disciplines will help bring a perspective to our membership that will be seen and appreciated in accordance with our philosophies as we move forward.
