Teaching since:

Just moved from California where I accompanied various high school choirs in the Sacramento area. I've directed elementary choirs and an adult choir which I have founded myself. In addition, I served as the Music Director for Stand Out Talent at Tower Theater in Roseville, CA where I music directed Footloose, The Addams Family, Mary Poppins, Jekyll and Hyde, RENT (in which I was nominated for a Sacramento Elly Award for best music direction in Sacramento), 13! The Musical (also nominated for a Sacramento Elly Award), piano conducted The Who's Tommy at Folsom Lake College, and Assistant Music Directed The Glorious Ones with Webster Conservatory. Just recently, I sang behind Barry Manilow in his 2015 Farewell Tour Choir and accompanied Broadway and Hollywood star Adam Pascal's vocal workshop at the Tower Theater in Roseville. Currently, I serve on the faculty at COCA in University City.

Musical Theater · In studio

Nicolas coached me on some audition repertoire that helped me get the role that I wanted! He adapts so well to what my needs are and is extremely knowledgeable in musical theater repertoire.

Classical Voice · In studio

I've had a great experience studying with Nic. He's not only an amazing voice teacher, but he's so fun to be around. I've formed a great bond with Nic, and I've grown substantially as a voice student. Thanks, Nic, for all you've done!

Piano · In studio

I've spent the past year with Nic studying piano, and I've not only grown in my piano skills, but I've also grown as a musician. Nic has helped me through his extensive knowledge of piano pedagogy, through a classical and contemporary set of music, and his overall upbeat and positive attitude. I would reccomend Nic to anyone who is looking for an outstanding piano teacher; whether they want to take lessons for fun or pursue a career, Nic will help you become the best musician you can be.
