Ian Nau


Ian started playing music since age 4. After brief attempts at piano and viola, he fell in love with percussion. Since that early start, he went through concert and marching bands in school, marched two years with the Oregon Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps, acquired a Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from Southern Oregon University, and helped teach marching bands in the Portland, Oregon area; some went on to become state champions in their division and Bands of America Regional Finalists. While doing all this, his professional performance career took him to play in every style of venue possible, from large concert halls filled with people to corners of empty bars. From all these experiences, he teaches the lessons he  learned and continues to learn.
