Nick is a very experienced teacher, and has provided me with a lot of valuable advice in my future career. Within shot period of time,, I am able too learn the process of writing my own songs and be able to produce them. I am very grateful to him for his patience and expertise. I flew in from Hong Kong in order to take lessons from him over the last month. I'm very much looking forward to taking more lessons from him in December of this year.
He is a funny guy and provide a relaxing and enjoyable class and i can get new knowledge on music. I expect the next class.
