Oral History Information
Jack Schechinger enjoyed his career in the music products industry. When he sat down for his NAMM Oral History program in retirement, Jack recalled the many friends and companies he worked with and got to know over the years. Jack’s passion for music developed thanks to his mother being a piano player and his sisters playing the organ in church. Jack picked up the drums and has played them throughout his life. His parents encouraged him to play, and in fact his high school rock band practiced in the family garage. Jack even remembers his first kit, a Slingerland, which he purchased at Hospe’s Music Store in Omaha!
