"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. After a year in Chicago, where he was enrolled as a student in the Columbia College school of Music as a jazz studies student, he dropped out and has relocated to Toledo to finish his degree at BGSU, on a full ride scholarship as well as pursue a career as a fulltime musician and teacher. In addition to teaching his current musical endeavors include work with bands such as The Wall Clocks, Cetan Clawson, The David Gerald Band and many others. Recently Interviewed On; WDET (101.9FM), WNMC (Northern Michigan Radio), WYCE (Grand Rapids), WSUE (Sault St. Marie) and many others.
