Hi! I'm Nick. It would be my pleasure to teach you or your loved one. I have a bachelor's degree in classical guitar performance. I have played piano for years now and am very well-versed in music theory. I am very eager to keep the love of music and the scholasticism behind learning good technique and creating an artist.

· Guitar · In home He was very good, a real teacher
· Acoustic Guitar · In home Nick is a very knowledgeable and engaging instructor. My daughter is a beginner guitar player with a lot of questions, and Nick communicates with her in a patient and effective way. He's been able to teach her a lot of content without overwhelming her. The progress that my daughter has made in just a few short months with Nick is beyond my expectations, he is an excellent teacher!
