Welcome to Music at West Middle School!! My name is Tom Nasiatka (pronounced 'Nah-Shot-Kah'), and this year I will teach 6th grade Music Production classes, 7th and 8th grade Drop A Beat classes, and some instrument lessons.
I am a proud New England native - born and raised in Massachusetts, and am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with Bachelor's Degrees in both Music Education and Saxophone Performance. I later returned to UMASS to pursue and complete my Master's Degree in Saxophone Performance. I spent 11 amazing years teaching kids at Brattleboro Area Middle School and High School in the incredible community of Brattleboro, Vermont before marrying my husband Dan, Professor of Music Education at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, and moving to Minnesota.
