Drew Neneman, an Omaha native, and member of the SNJ Studio of Music since 2009, keeps an active private studio of over 40 students serving young adults from 14 districts in 2 states. An avid performer of classical and vernacular music, he keeps a full performance schedule as liturgist, pianist, soloist and songwriter.
Drew received his Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance and his Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Students of his have received scholarships and honors to attend such prestigious musical institutions as Oklahoma City University, Florida State University, St. Olaf College, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Minnesota, Kansas University, Luther College, Texas Christian University, Farleigh Dickinson University, Viterbo University, Millikin University and the Interlochen Center for the Arts.
While attending UNL, with guidance from Dr. Peter Eklund, Drew received a UCARE grant to complete an undergraduate research survey on vernacular music in secondary education. The survey focused on musical theatre and show choir, taking him around the Midwest as a collaborator, clinician and student among such great Music Educators as Jim Kimmel of Belmont University and Doran Johnson of Westside High School in Omaha, NE.
Seeking to promote excellence in singing and ingenuity of expression, Drew routinely works as a consultant, clinician and judge with choirs from Texas to South Dakota.
