I was born in Luke AFB, Arizona and was raised moving around because my dad was in the air force. Both of my parents are musical; my dad plays guitar and my mom sings. Now, everyone in our family is musical; my sister plays guitar and sings, my brother plays drums and guitar, and I play piano, guitar, ukulele and sing. I started taking piano lessons when I was 9 years old, in Okinawa, Japan and I have been playing ever since. Once we moved back to states in high school, I decided to pick up the guitar. Since I was homeschooled I did not have the privilege of participating in the band and orchestra programs. I led our youth worship band along with my brother on drums and cousin on the bass guitar for 2 years. After I graduated I continued to be heavily involved in worship bands, playing special functions like women’s retreats and conferences. I also taught piano lessons to a couple of young students for about a year when I was a junior in High School.

Now, I lead worship along side my husband, Jose, at Revive Bible Church. We also have a side project called Hosanna! (hehe get it?)

I started working at Hillje Music Center in November of last year. I enjoy spreading the love of music to the people of San Antonio. I especially love when new students come in, excited to begin the adventure that learning an instrument is!

My name is José Carreón and I was born in Saltillo, Coahuila which is located in the mountains of Mexico ?

I began playing music at the old age of 15. I graduated from James Madison High School here in San Antonio, Texas in

2013 and I have been at Hillje Music Center for a year now.

I have performed with the following groups; We The Kings, Spoken, and some of the members of The Misfits.

I now lead worship with my wife, Hannah at Revive Bible Church.

Jeremiah 29:11­13

I also like long walks on the beach and all that jazz… Except for jazz… I hate jazz…

Devin joined the Hillje team in 2015 already a true veteran of the music industry.

The Ohio native earned his Bachelors of Arts in Music Education from Ohio University in 1983. He began his music industry experience in retail in Columbus Ohio at Coyle Music as their expert in a new technology of the time called MIDI.  The success of his presentations in many schools and colleges across Ohio led to his position as Educational Representative where he grew great business relationships with his customers for 13 years.

In 1995, Devin became the youngest professional ever recruited to fill the coveted position of a Selmer District Manager.  He thrived in this respected position through all the acquisitions and changes which were to follow for his 13 year tenure.  Conn- Selmer recognized Devin on numerous occasions as a successful sales leader and professional.

After leaving Conn-Selmer in 2008, Devin worked as a factory representative for even more lines we are pleased to offer here at Hillje Music.  This expertise in a wide sampling of manufacturer’s designs and features allows him to increase our product knowledge and better serve our valued customers.  In 2011, Devin became National Sales Manager for the Texas-based Antigua Winds Company. He moved his family to our great State and lives still in Bulverde in the Texas hill country north of San Antonio.

Devin joins the Hillje team as Sales Manager where he is able to direct our growing staff of employees with his extensive industry knowledge.  He is excited to be back to his roots in retail where his professional, ethical and successful experiences will be put to good use to benefit the valued customers of Hillje Music.

Hello! My name’s Oziel, but for those that know me, I go by Ozzy. I’ve had a passion for music since before I could talk, when I would babble the lyrics to the tejano and cumbia music my mom played in our home. At age 7, I learned my first notes on recorder, and since then, I’ve participated in Orff Ensemble, Choir, and school band (cornet, euphonium and tuba).

I am originally from Brownsville and was heavily involved in the local music scene there, covering guitar, bass, drums and vocals in various bands and also working as a promoter for showcases featuring local and touring bands alike. You can hear some of my work, from home demos to studio recordings at https://soundcloud.com/oziel­alvarez

I moved to San Antonio in the Fall of 2011 to study Public Relations at UTSA, and I’ve been working on solo material since the move. My latest project, Road Trip to Canada, toured Texas in 2012, and I’ve been playing at small shows and open mics sporadically since then. I also collect instruments everywhere I go, and I’m building a home studio in my spare time.

I started at Hillje Music Center in August of 2015 and became store manager at the Bandera location in January of 2016. Currently, I’m shifting my focus towards using my knowledge and skills to help other people discover the joy of making music and hopefully experience the benefits that music has provided me my entire life. It is my goal to grow with this company as a creator of music, both personally and by extension in helping others to create it. Come see me at our Bandera location and let me help you get the tools you need to make music today!

I was born in Riverdale, Georgia on August 20th, 1995. However, have spent most of my life in Boerne, Texas where I currently reside. I began playing clarinet when I was 11 years old, and have been playing ever since. I started playing guitar when I was 18 years old.

Music is important to me because it has taught me many important life skills. Specifically, being in band and choir for 6 years each taught me how to work effectively with others, and to work hard even when it’s easier to give up. Not to mention, I have met some of the most talented mentors and made countless friends due to the music organizations was involved in.

I have been with Hillje Music for almost 2 years, and have loved getting to work with all of you! I play clarinet in the Boerne Concert Band. I also play guitar and sing in the praise band at St. John Lutheran Church in Boerne.
