A little about myself:

Mr. Nathan, a native of Norfolk, Nebraska, is a graduate of Wayne State College and recently completed a Master’s of Music Education (M.M.E.) from the American Band College with Central Washington University.
While attending the American Band College, he’s had the opportunity to learn and perform with some of the biggest names in music education and artistry; Doc Severinsen, Larry Livingston, Col. Arnald Gabriel, and Joe Alessi, among many others. While at Yutan, the High School Band was honored to perform at the Nebraska State Bandmasters Association’s 2017 Convention. He was also honored as 2017 Teacher of the Year by the District 9 VFW.
Mr. Nathan resides in Beaver City, Nebraska with his wife, Kaitlin; 3 year old son, Keegan; and dog, Cecelia. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling, and attending professional concerts as well as occasionally riding motocross with his Dad who still competes.
