Teaching since:

I am much more than just another teacher with a degree. There is so much to be learned from someone who is actually playing your instrument for a living. I have played in many arenas as well as playing on the Castle in Disney World. I know what it takes to become the best you can be at your instrument. I look forward to getting started with you soon!

Trumpet · In studio

I have been taking trumpet lessons from Nick for about 3 years and have always looked forward to lessons. He has a very good ear for detail and knows what to do to help students improve their playing skills. His teaching style is direct and to the point, he knows exactly what material each student needs to practice on their own. I can confirm that lessons from Nick have helped me prepare for college music as well. Numerous professors I have played for have commented on my expansive repertoire and advanced technical skills. Nick Haynes is a well qualified instructor for intermediate players and those looking to continue through college.

Nick is extremely patient and positive with our son. He pushes him to do his best and works with him on the areas he is weak at until he gets them.
