Our Mar-Schell's music Team

Dan Scaletta

Dan has worked at a few different music stores in Winnipeg over the last 35 years. In that time he has taught drums and sold music equipment ! Dan feels the most important and most rewarding part of his chosen career is all the great relationships he has developed with other musicians, business owners, co-workers and clients. “I came to Mar-Schell’s Music in 2008 and quickly grew to love this store, having all that great gear on the showroom floor is just the icing on the cake” . As the manager of Mar-Shell's, as well as an avid musician for 50 years, Dan has developed a vast knowledge of musical instruments of all kinds. If you have any questions, Dan would love to chat with you !
