My name is Arturo Gonzales, but my friends and family call me Artie. I was born in San Benito, Texas and raised by my grandparents in Mercedes, Texas. I left my hometown for Texas A&M University-Kingsville (Texas A&I) in 1998 and ended up in San Antonio in 2009. I am an avid saxophonist and woodwind specialist and enjoy performing music from jazz to classical and almost everything in between.
I began playing saxophone in 1991 as part of the school band program. Great teachers taught me to read music very well, and their guidance helped me receive multiple All-District and All-Region Band honors, as well as a number of medals from Regional and State Solos & Ensembles Contests. In my senior year, I was Drum Major of the Mercedes High School Mighty Tiger Band.
I became a fully versatile woodwind player in college performing in multiple ensembles on almost every common woodwind instrument. I marched 5 years in the TAMUK Javelina Marching Band, The Pride of South Texas. I was a Collegiate Performer at TMEA in both Symphonic Band and Jazz Band, and attended the CBDNA Regional Conference with the TAMUK Symphonic Band.
In 2004, I was part of a DownBeat Award winning Jazz Band from Texas A&M University-Kingsville. This award became the spring board for their Bachelor’s of Music in Performance with an emphasis on Jazz Studies program. I was an inaugural member of the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra, and played as a pit musician for several musicals, my favorites of which are “Into The Woods” and “Kiss Me Kate”.
I moved to San Antonio to pursue better opportunities, and I currently perform with the Heart of Texas Concert Band. I am an officer in the band and the principal saxophonist. I also perform in the group on oboe, English horn, and bassoon. I have extensive experience in the restaurant business, but found my niche here at Hillje Music Centers. I am grateful for the opportunity to utilize my knowledge and people skills to help customers.

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.
