Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory
Although a relatively late bloomer, Nicholas’ passion in piano performance and music composition erupted shortly after introduction. After starting piano performance at age 12 and music composition at age 14, he shortly graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2012 with a Music Composition/Theory degree, and has composed nearly 2.5 hours of Symphonies, Concertos, Soundtracks, Jazz Combos, Woodwind Ensembles, Choral works, World musics, and other forms of Postmodernism.
Nicholas’ piano skills irrefutably accompany his compositional skills, as he has been teaching piano for 5 years and is able to play Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Beethoven’s Moonlight/Pathetique Sonatas, and other difficult repertoire including various Jazz/blues tunes. His music teachers in High School included Jeanette Tanski and Professor William Hill (current percussionist of the Denver Philharmonic), and his Vanderbilt professors comprised of Michael Rose, Stan Link, Michael Slayton, Jama Reagan, and Michael Kurek - all with various backgrounds from Princeton, Eastman, University of Michigan, and other pretentious Universities.
Coming form a musical family, I cannot remember when music was not a part of my life. Both my parents were musicans, my father an instrumentalist and arranger and my mother a fine pianist. From the age of seven they encouaged and assisted my music education any way they could. Music came first in our family. My school years were spent in band, marching band and jazz band. During my high school years I took over the local elementary band and taught begining band to the students after the band teacher had left before the school year finished.
To pay my way through college I taught piano, organ and band instruments in rural Colorado, even using a horse to get to my students when the roads were closed. During this time I was the house organist at the Alladin Theater in Denver and had the pleasure of playing for the primer of " The Duchess and Dirtwater Fox" starring George Segal and Goldie Hawn. I also played for many churches in the area assisting with choir and congregational music.
My teaching experience is broad with both private and public school classroom expiernces. I have taught privately for well over forty years in both a private and group settings. I also have a MSW ( Master Social Worker) degree from the University of Denver and for many years assisted Seniors with the challenges that they face.
Currently I am Minister of Music for First Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, Colorado ( a small mountian community west of Denver). I am orgainsit for the Scottish Rite Temple in Denver and perform private and public events throughtout the mountian and Denver area.

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.
