I am currently a lead guitar and piano player for a collective artist band that plays for events, camps, and churches across the country. I am also completing online courses through Michigan State University to receive my certificate in Music Theory and Guitar Scales/Chord Progressions to teach to the best of my ability.
I don't teach how to read sheet music (this isn't to be confused with chord charts and guitar tabs, I often use them to teach). What I do know how to do is hear a song, and by listening to it know exactly what to do in order to find out how to play it without the help of technology. Learning to play by ear isn't as hard as it may sound! When you learn how to read music, you cannot play anything unless you have sheet music in front of you. I firmly believe the true joy in becoming a musician happens when you really begin to understand the instrument, and can express yourself through it. My life has been changed by music in the best way, and I find it incredible that I get the opportunity to help you learn what has made me who I am!
My interest in music styles is endless. Whether its jazz, blues, rock, country, etc., I respect all genres! And whichever genre you would be interested in learning, whether its one or all, I look forward to meeting you and growing alongside you!
Nick is an amazing instructor, he does step my step instructions while learning so that you can be assured that you are picking up on the material and playing all the right notes! His lessons are always fun and they perfect for the newcomer!
Nick was so friendly and so patient with me! I am just a beginner and it was very reassuring to know he would take the time to work with me. He was very knowledgable and gave me a bunch of great tips to begin my journey as a guitarist! I will definitely be coming back to Nick to learn more and see what more he has to offer!+ Read More
Nick is a truly fantastic teacher. It’s hard to find a teacher with both skill and patience but he has both in abundance! His teaching style allows me to learn quickly and thoroughly despite my overall lack of knowledge in guitar. I always look forward to my next lesson because I’m excited to learn the different techniques and skills Nick has amassed in his musical career. He has helped me set a goal to work towards and I love to see my progress on a weekly basis. I truly can’t say enough good about Nick. I urge you to sign up for some lessons and see what you can learn for yourself!+ Read More
Great instructor! I went into it knowing nothing about guitar but he explained everything very clearly to me and stayed at my pace. He also never made me feel uncomfortable with asking questions. Highly recommended!
Nick is great! He’s super passionate about music and it shows through his teaching. He makes learning guitar easy to understand. Would highly recommend him for lessons!
Had a blast learning from Nick and have learned a lot of useful stuff! Would definitely recommend!
