Lesson Details

Acoustic Guitar

Levels Taught:

After a combined 4 years of musical experience, my goal is simple: to genuinely teach you everything I know! I value every minute spent with every student. I believe guitar lessons shouldn't only be fun, but have the potential to be LIFE changing. Taking lessons with me will not only leave you a better guitar player, but my goal is to help my students fall in love with guitar the way I have! From playing simple chords to impressive riffs, I look forward to nothing else than helping you grow as a guitarist! I promise you won't be disappointed, and I'm excited to get started!

Teaching since:
May 2018

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 was everything i hoped for in a piano teacher. he makes the process so easy, plus he identifies what you need and goes straight to the point.

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!

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!

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!
