Who is Mr. Hammerman?
Mr. Hammerman joined the NHS music community in 2010 playing in numerous musical pits, directing the Northern Lights Show Choir Combo, and conducting at pep band events. Now entering his 4th year as Director of Bands, and thanks to the musical and educational guidance received from Mr. Bob Baldwin, Mr. Felix James, and Dr. Jerry Young, Mr. Hammerman continues to push all band students towards individual and group excellence in music whether through wind and jazz ensembles, marching band, musical pits, or any other performance medium. Outside of the education community, Mr. Hammerman enjoys watching movies new and old, listening to Motown and Old-School Rap, finding new "hole-in-the-wall" restaurants, and performing as the Bass Player Extraordinaire with a few local cover bands.
