Teaching since:
January 2003

Hello! My name is Nick Mainella and I have been a professional music teacher since 2003! I'm available to teach lessons out of my home studio, your home or business, and online. I received my Bachelor's Degree in music performance from the University of New Hampshire and a Master's Degree in Jazz Performance from Western Michigan University.
Since then I have been teaching students privately, in public schools, and in music academies and loving every second of it! I also keep an active gigging schedule and am the founder and host of the 10 Minute Jazz Lesson Podcast!
There is nothing better to me than watching my students progress on their instruments each and every week. If you would like a passionate, enthusiastic, and FUN music teacher, I would love to speak to you further!
