Nikki has been interested in music since she was quite little. When she got old enough to join the school band, she jumped in 100%. Her first instrument was a hand me down flute from her mother, Julia, which she learned quickly, with the help from a talented daughter of a family friend. When it was time to join the High School Marching band, she was encouraged to take up the tenor saxophone. She has since continued playing the flute, as well as alto, soprano, tenor, and baritone sax, along with many percussion instruments. Anything involving music or performance will be guaranteed to grab her attention, be it concert band, pep band, jazz band, marching band, or musical theater. Her room at home looks like she's in an unofficial contest with her dad to see who can accumulate the most musical instruments!
After graduation, Nikki will be attending Indiana University in the fall, where she hopes to stay involved with music through the I.U. Marching Hundred.
