During his musical career Nicholas has played almost every style of music; from folk to experimental from jazz to rock. One thread holds true through all music, it has to groove.
Just as every player has their own musical personality and voice, so too does every lesson that Nicholas gives. In a supportive, patient environment, every lesson is custom tailored to the student.
Being musical is inherent to being human, so when a students’ musical abilities fail to progress, it is the teaching method that has failed, not the student. While my educational background allows me to offer my students a high level of instruction in instrumental technique, my first priority with every student is to foster their love and understanding of music through playing their instrument.
During the course of a lesson he will cover a broad range of topics starting from the basics, and moving into ear training, sight-reading, theoretical knowledge and most important for any player, groove.

My 8 year old plays piano. My 10 year old plays trumpet. Neither knew anything about music when they started. Mr. Nick, as my children calls him, is wonderful with them both. They both have progressed faster than I ever thought. His teaching methods are awesome.

I am beginner at playing the piano, and Nic is an awesome teacher because he's patient and any improvement - no matter how big or how small - Nic recognizes and compliments the achievement. He really breaks things down so it's not overwhelming for a beginner, and he allows me to learn at my own pace but he does challenge me to learn. I've learned to know which keys are which, how to place my fingers on the keys and how to relax and play with both hands. I highly recommend Nic as a piano teacher.
Nic can relate to the child's ability level and instructs them as such. He is very reasonably priced; flexible which is immensely helpful if I have to change a lesson; and comes to the house - another bonus.
I recommend him.
