Educational/Technical Sales and Support
Sean Sibley was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, graduated Greenfield High School in 1999, and attended UMASS Amherst. While in college, Sean marched in the drum line in the UMASS Minuteman Marching Band. One day during his freshman year, the band was marching on the side of a hill. Since he had a bass drum on, he failed to see a drainage grate dead ahead of him. As a result, he (and the bass drum) fell down the hill! Neither his ankle, nor the drum, has been the same since! Despite this embarrassing accident, Sean graduated from UMASS Amherst in 2003 and went on to marry his high school sweetheart in 2004. They settled down together, and currently live in Greenfield with their two children and their cat.
Sean began working for a full service music company, Gribbon’s Music, in 1995, at the age of fifteen. Upon graduation from college, Sean moved up in the same company, becoming an Educational Representative until the store closed in 2007. At this time he began working as the Affiliates Account Manager for a Boston based music store. In 2011, Sean Sibley began working at Gerry’s Music. Here, he fills many important roles. He supports our educational representatives, is a retails sales associate, is our social media support, orchestrates our eBay sales, and is integral in our percussion repairs. Sean’s favorite part of his job is watching a student find their instrument. He loves helping musicians find the instrument that allows them to express themselves musically. Sean’s favorite department in our store is definitely our percussion department. He says, “Our percussion department is very extensive. We carry everything from cymbal stand parts to professional drum sets. As a percussionist, it is great to be surrounded by your craft and its many tools!” Throughout Sean’s career, he has had to adapt to many circumstances. When he makes the decision to answer the phone or greet a customer who comes into the store, Sean does his personal best to ensure that the customer has a great experience.
