The Center for Young Musicians is proud to announce that Jake Niehl has joined our team as Communications Manager! Jake came to us on a part-time basis a few months ago to work on graphic design and marketing, but recently was promoted to be the manager over all CYM communications. You have probably already noticed his amazing artwork on our website, our posters, and our social media. Here is a little background on Jake:
Jake hails from Irwin, PA. He attended Penn-Trafford High School and graduated from Robert Morris University in 2013 with a degree in Media Arts with a focus in Graphic Design. Mr. Niehl worked for three years as a camera operator/floor director for WPXI Channel 11 News, one year as the Social Media Manager/Graphic Designer for Premier Promotional Solutions, and most recently worked for My BFF Social before accepting his new position at CYM.
Jake says: “While I do not have a music degree, I’ve been involved in music since I was a child. In high school, I played the trumpet, trombone, and baritone. I was an assistant drum major of the marching band, and was in the musicals my junior and senior years (even learned how to tap dance!). I’m extremely excited to formally become a part of the CYM family and cannot wait to begin my journey here.”
