I first heard Nick play about 4 years ago and a friend of mine took lessons from him. When I decided to start lessons, I naturally decided to go to him. As I went to his place, I thought, "Oh wow! I forget to ask my friend whether he's a good teacher!" I need not have worried. He's superb. He focuses on musicality: listening, hearing, enjoying; and then pulls out the technical things you could improve at and delves deep. I leave every lesson feeling great, and (proof of the pudding) people I jam with comment on how much my playing has improved. I'm an "advanced intermediate" player, but Nick also teaches kids, beginners, etc. In the age of coronavirus, our lessons are on Skype, and they are great, too. He comes out of jazz and plays trad as well as modern, but he also has an Americana band, and he knows classical, and the student before me is learning Hendrix-style rock. So no matter what direction you want to go, Nick is your man!
Cris
I’ve been trying to teach myself guitar from online videos and just started taking lessons with Nick. It’s making a huge difference. He’s worked on my posture, left and right hand positions, started me on basic ear training, sight reading and understanding of rhythm. He’s given me exercises to help with chord changes I’ve been struggling with. Nick’s a great musician who loves to play but also loves to teach, so a beginner with no music training can gain from his knowledge. He’s a kind, patient teacher and an enjoyable person to spend time with. My guitar playing sounds better already.
Bob Tilton
This was my first lesson with Nick. He is a very nice guy. He created a calm, relaxed atmosphere in his studio, and he was clear when he gave me particular instructions. His knowledge of music theory in general, and of the five-string banjo in particular, was quite impressive. I would recommend him highly to both a beginner and to anyone (like myself) who is in need of a refresher course. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson.

Vince T.

Bass guitar is the foundation of many modern musical ensembles. From jazz to rock, it's proven popular and reliable. There is always need for a decent bassist.

Vince began playing bass as a teenager. He first learned by ear; transcribing a lot of classic rock (Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, etc...). Although Vince primarily studied trumpet in college, he continued playing bass with off campus bands. Vince applied what he was learning in music school to his bass playing. He is now a fully literate bassist.

Vince is the bassist and musical director for Phloyd: A Pink Floyd Tribute band based in Philadelphia. He's recorded bass on a few of his solo albums including Syzygy and Sound Plan. He played bass with the John Byrne Band and still subs occasionally when the current bassist is unavailable. For three semesters, Vince taught bass at Rock to the Future, an after school music program in Philadelphia. There he taught all the bass students focusing on technique, reading,

About Vince

My lessons are built-up from a person's natural voice. It is genuine and has much more character than trying to unnaturally mold someone's voice. I teach various techniques with accompanying exercises for both group and solo vocal performances.

I enjoy building confidence in singers across multiple levels of experience, with the final goal of making them proud of their own voice and style.

Nico was recommended to me two months ago and I am very glad I reached out. I already feel more confident knowing what to listen out for when singing. He also taught me a couple songs on ukulele so I can accompany myself. Cool teacher & fun jam sessions!
