Oral History Information
Jessica Palmer, as a passionate music maker throughout school and a music education major in college, was impressed by West Music's approach towards supporting band directors. As a young girl, Jessica loved watching her aunt play the trumpet, which inspired her to pick up the instrument in school. Always singing with her family and in choirs, she developed an understanding and appreciation for music teachers and band directors. Working at West Music she can support those who guide and influence young students just as she once was. Jessica participated in the 2023 Women of NAMM (WoN) leadership summit. This yearly event helps participants develop leadership skills and expand their network of contacts and resources, to strengthen their current positions and future contributions in our industry.
