Nicholas K.

Irwin, PA

About Nicholas

I am 28 years old, and was born and raised in North Huntingdon Pennsylvania. I knew at a very young age that I wanted to pursue a career in the arts. I believe that music specifically unlocks self-expression, intelligence, and creativity, and I cannot imagine a life without it. Teaching music, acting, and singing is something that brings me great joy, I am passionately committed to my students and love the challenges and rewards that teaching has to offer!

Training and Experience:

I am a classical trained singer and musical theater actor. I studied vocal performance at Slippery Rock Univ
ersity with Dr. Colleen Gray. While I was at Slippery Rock I had the opportunity to perform in a variety of plays, musicals and operas. My favorite roles include Seymour Krelbourn in Little Shop of Horrors, Cliff Bradshaw in Cabaret, and Jacques in Shakespeare's As you like it. I also had significant roles in Slippery Rock's main stage operas including King Melchior in Amahl and the night Visitors and Dr. Falked in Die Fledermaus. When I was a junior, I had the opportunity to perform in my first professional opera, Bellini's i capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) with the Pittsburgh Opera Chorus at the Benedum Center. After college I performed at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as a singer in their Italian shows as well as their Christmas Show.

I have performed in operas, plays and musicals regionally around the country including Florida, New Hampshire, Connecticut and New York City. My most recent project was workshopping a new musical called Front Page Girl, a musical based on life of Nellie Bly, who was a pioneer for women in the world of journalism. The musical was composed by David Friedman with a book written by Peter Kellogg. David Friedman is known for his work on the Today Show, his work with Disney's Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, and composing the Broadway musical 'Scandal' with Kathy Lee Gifford in 2012. Peter Kellogg is a two time Tony Award Nominee for his work in the musical adaptation of Anna Karenina. The opportunity to work with these two talented men was an experience I will never forget. I also had the pleasure of being nominated and winning a 2013 Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for my portrayal of Joseph Pulitzer in Front Page Girl.

I taught private voice in college and at The Centerstage Academy of Performing Arts when I lived in Williamsburg. I recently moved back to Pittsburgh after living in New York City for just under two years. and I am ready to get back into private teaching! I specialize in teaching classical voice, musical theater, audition preparation, monologue preparation, and performance preparation. I have taught students both individually and in a group setting. The ages of my students have ranged anywhere from third grade to men and women into their sixties. As someone who has been in the business for a little over five years now, I am confident that I have the tools to teach and prepare any student who has the passion, commitment and work ethic that it takes to succeed.

Bruce M.

Johnstown, PA

About Bruce

I have been playing the guitar seriously for approximately 32 years. I taught myself to play while enlisted in the US Navy. Using books and playing by ear were my methods of learning. I began writing songs shortly after learning to play, this was quite a satisfying outlet for all sorts of emotions! As a civilian I have been in various bands from Blues to Classic Rock to Heavy Metal. All were learning experiences, plus a lot of fun! I also play bass guitar and can provide lessons on that if you are interested.
I am a paraplegic and cannot come to your location so if you are intere
sted I am located in Richland behind Walmart. I have been instructing people for a number of years but not as a formal teacher. I would like to take time now to teach what I have learned over the years to whoever is interested in learning this marvelous instrument that brings me so much pleasure! Thank you for considering me for your learning experience!

I worked with Mr. Pickering for three years when he was my high school choir director and it was a great experience for me. He inspired me to work my hardest and always push myself to be better than I was the day before. Now I am studying to be a music teacher myself; I hope to inspire my students to be their best just like he did.

Dale J.

New Kensington, PA

About Dale

I've taught public school elementary band for 30 years, have been a church organist for 70 years, and taught piano and organ for 57 years. I enjoy teaching music and working with students and believe that learning to read music will enable the student to play with other musicians and enjoy music as much as I have. I try to put myself in the student's place to think as he/she does and help them understand music and perform it.
