Nick H. Pittsburgh, PA

Subjects Taught

Celtic Flute, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory

About Me

I am a professional bagpipe performer and instructor based in the Pittsburgh area and the third ever graduate of the Bagpipe Music Performance degree at Carnegie-Mellon University. An experienced performer, I am well versed in both traditional and contemporary piping and, as a Professional grade bagpiper, I've been lucky to win many prizes in solo competition, in Scotland, Canada, France, and the USA. I also hold the Graduate Certificate from the Institute of Piping, the highest certification possible for bagpipe performance. In addition to highland piping, I am an active performer of border/smallpipes and whistles with various ensembles. Along with my performance degree I also was in the Music Education Certification program at Carnegie-Mellon. I currently teach several pipe bands of various grades in the Pittsburgh area as well as maintaining a private bagpipe lesson studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would love to teach you how to learn the bagpipes! I maintain a large private bagpipe lesson studio, with pipers ranging from practice chanter beginners to very advanced pipers, ages 8-73, so I am very confident with one-on-one bagpipe instruction across age and ability levels. Bagpipe lessons cover all aspects of music education (reading and notating music, theory, history) as well as bagpipe-related aspects (performance, technique, tuning, maintenance, repertoire). Additionally, I currently teach the MacDonald Pipe Band of Pittsburgh (now in its 45th year) and the Pittsburgh Firefighters Memorial Pipe Band. I have students across many grade-levels, and am pleased with the consistent success of both the soloists and the bagpipe bands which I instruct. I will tailor the bagpipe lessons to suit your specific goals, pushing you to higher musical expertise and enjoyment, as well as continuing the teaching tradition passed down to me. In addition to being a bagpipe teacher, I taught Elementary General Music and Middle School Concert Band in the public schools, as a Music Education student, so I have experience teaching more than just bagpipes, which I believe will enrich your studies with me. In addition to lessons on the highland bagpipe, I can also perform and teach the Scottish smallpipes, border pipes, and Irish whistle. Please contact me for my more-than-reasonable rates.

For those not located in Pittsburgh, or who travel frequently, a convenient solution is bagpipe lessons over Skype. Audio, video, and sheet music files are sent through email or Dropbox, and payment is through PayPal. I have had many students who have used this easy and flexible option for learning the bagpipes, sometimes combined with an in-person lesson once a month.

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Ear Training, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory

About Me

Learn from an Internationally recognized musician! In 2008 I set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for continuous guitar playing. I've performed at nearly every important music venue in Pittsburgh, notably: Heinz Hall, Heinz Field, the (old) Syria Mosque, The Electric Banana, Nick's Fat City, Graffiti, the Decade, the Hard Rock Café (Pittsburgh) and Stage AE.

Since starting classical piano at age 5, trumpet, french horn and bass have all been primary instruments for at least several years, but the guitar has remained since age 10. I have developed an extensive and well-rounded set of sensibilities from performing jazz, blues and rock bands, bell choirs, marching bands, orchestras and musicals.

Along with decades of experience in music performance, education, composition and production, I also has a profound interest in ear training and harmonic music theory. Dubbed 'human jukebox' and 'iPod,' i have the rare ability to instantly reproduce nearly any popular or known repertoire as a result of advanced work in ear training and music theory. I can help you reach your goals and teach you things which set you on a course of permanent improvement.

*** Lesson Details ***
There are many great study books in publication that we can use and that I can recommend. we will identify and work on specific aspects of musicianship that we decide.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room, recording devices, computer

*** Travel Equipment ***

About Me

I am currently a 3rd-year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Pittsburgh and I have a strong educational background in mathematics, general sciences, and all around academics. I have also been a musician for 12 years of my life. Drumset and percussion are my strongest areas in music but I am also adequately skilled at guitar and singing. I have experience performing with a wide array of diverse music groups such as the Pitt Drumline (Center Snare), Concert Band, Men's Glee Club, and many local musicians that are in need of a drumset player. I have a strong passion for teaching and would love nothing more than for my students to excel.

About Me

I have been classically trained in piano and have played for over 20 years. I also have classical and jazz training in guitar at Shenandoah University. Many years experience in the recording industry, producing, mixing and mastering countless records. I am Pro Tools Certified and even studied in France with world famous engineer, Jimmy Douglass. Above all else I love the music. You can still catch me playing along to Led Zeppelin records trying to learn every detail of the solos. My lessons have a heavy influence on theory. I want my students to understand WHY a certain lick works, or WHY this mixing technique is best. Hope to hear from you soon.

Cheers.
