New episode of Beyond the Stage, the Podcast that explores non-performing careers in music!


Episode 3 – Manufacturer Representative with Wes Kreitz (Part 1)

In the interest of brevity the title of this episode calls Wes Kreitz a “Manufacturer Representative” but he does so much more.  Wes is the District Manager for the Western US for Yamaha, but more than that he is a School Services Representative.  If you are a school of any kind in the western US and want Yamaha instruments, Wes is your guy.


In this episode we talk about how Wes started making music growing up in rural Pennsylvania.  He discusses why he loves working for Yamaha and how that gives him the opportunity to help people to love music.  He also goes into how his early plans to become a farmer led him to teaching music and eventually Yamaha.
