Nathan Hervey (b. Texas) is an American composer and educator.

Mr. Hervey grew up in Arlington, Texas. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree from UT Arlington and his Master of Music in trombone performance from University of North Texas. He currently serves as band director at Arlington High School and also teaches beginners at Bailey Junior High in Arlington.

Mr. Hervey currently [2021] serves a band director at Arlington (Tx.) High School. In that role he conducts the jazz ensembles as well as the concert band and assists with the marching band. Other duties include teaching beginner musicians at Bailey Junior High.

Composition has long been one of Mr. Hervey’s passions, and it has grown out of a desire to provide beautiful music for young musicians. His earliest compositions were quartets and piano pieces. He has also done a lot of transcriptions/arrangements for jazz bands that he has conducted over the years. Throughout his teaching career, he began getting ideas for music that he could write for his own ensembles. It started with arranging chorales, warm-ups, etc., and then moved into original music for them to perform. As time went on, his strong desire to write for young ensembles simply grew and students also encouraged me to keep writing.
