Chicago area trumpeter and Maynard Ferguson Orchestra alum, Nick Drozdoff, has been a fixture in Chicago’s jobbing arena for many years since he left Maynard Ferguson’s band in 1981.

After many years running his own contracting business and completing his masters in classical trumpet, he began leading a double life in 1991 when he took on a “day gig” as a high school physics teacher. Drozdoff has a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, allowing him to easily slip into a high school physics class. Drozdoff taught physics and APC physics at Winnetka’s New Trier High School.

After leading a double career existence, garnering awards as a high school science teacher and developing endorsement deals as a jazz trumpeter at night, Drozdoff recently retired from his beloved day job to get back to his passion of music exclusively. Now he leads a double life by virtue of geography, with a home in Door County, Wisconsin and in the Northern Suburbs of Chicago. He regularly performs in both locations as he lives equal time in both places, depending on his performance and lecture/masterclass schedule.
