Chris Scialfa developed his great love and passion for music at a very young age. By the time he was five years old Chris was taking classical piano lessons, which thanks to his understanding teacher, occasionally included works by Chris’ hero, Elton John! He began writing original music when he was 18 and performing in a progressive rock band. While pursuing a successful career as a professional musician, Chris found a day job at Carl Fischer Music Publishing in New York City in 1997. A few years later, Sandy Feldstein joined the company as President and took Chris under his wing. He encouraged Chris to get involved with the industry and travel, which he did. Chris participated in several industry associations such as RPMDA while increasing his knowledge of the industry. In 2014, Chris joined D’Addario in sales of the woodwind division. He was perfectly suited for the company and in a short time, Chris was promoted to Director of Sales for North America.
