I am a multi-instrumentalist from Queens, NYC, and I am currently the cellist/guitarist for the first national tour of the hit broadway show "Waitress". I trained as a classical cellist at the Aaron Copland School of Music, and I am a lifelong guitarist. Before starting my broadway career, I worked as a freelance cellist, playing with numerous orchestras around NYC, in addition to teaching many students in the Queens/Nassau County area. I also performed in a 30 city national tour the with the Post-Rock band "You Bred Raptors?", taking over for their original cellist. As a guitarist, I was sitting in with a professional band by the time I was just 14, and would later to go to play many clubs around NYC, such as the Bitter End and Bowery Electric, with my own projects.
While I am out on the road, I am available for skype lessons on either of these two instruments. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
I am currently traveling around the country on the first national tour of the hit broadway show "Waitress", written by Sara Bareilles.
Project I helped found in the Winter of 2014. The program raises money for the Opportunity Music Project, which is an NYC non-profit organization that provides free music lessons to disadvantaged children.
I worked as a coach and counselor for young classical musicians as they learned new repertoire and advanced their skills.
I taught various instruments at a successful music school in Queens, NYC. I prepared students for two recitals each year, and taught a mixture of rock/pop and classical music.
My son came home from his first violin lesson with a huge smile-very excitedly showed me what he learned
Nick was a great choice!
He is very patient with my son. He is very professional. Definitely recommend!
