Meet Our Director

Nick Staff

Career Objective
      "My goals for being a music educator are centered on making a positive impact in my students' lives by giving them the necessary tools and knowledge to become a better musician and ultimately a better person."


My love for music all began at an early age. As I got older, that passion continued to grow and I realized the real impact that a teacher can have on a student's life.

Originally a native of Milledgeville, GA, I studied under directors and teachers who reaffirmed my decision to pursue a career in music education. They challenged me every day to become a better musician and a better person at the same time.

I am a graduate of Jacksonville State University where I had the pleasure of performing and traveling with the world-renowned Marching Southerners, JSU Jazz Bands, Chamber Winds, HARDCORPS: The JSU Pep Band, and numerous other ensembles in which I was lucky enough to be surrounded some of the best professors and students in the field of music.

In my spare time (whatever that is!), I enjoy porch sitting, a nice cup of coffee, college football Saturdays, and performing as a freelance musician.
