Nicholas C

Instruments:

Nicholas has been a musician in some form or another for as long as he can remember. His musical journey started when he was only six, with a delve into the realm of classical piano. While there he studied under world class child prodigy Josh Cullen. The composers that he studied include Bach, Beethoven, Barton, Hayden and many others. From there he progressed to playing jazz trumpet, studying the Jamey Aebersold method under Paul Finkbeiner, the lead trumpet player for the Paul Keller Ensemble Then at the age of 11, with the help of his grandfather he discovered the guitar. He learned quickly on his old SR guitar. He quickly discovered that he had a natural taste for blues phrasing, and his soloing abilities quickly blossomed. 2 years later, he had formed his first band, Spherical. It was through this band that he found the bass. His journey into the realm of bass, began out of necessity and progressed into love of the bottom end. Since then, he has been collecting basses, playing, living and breathing bass. He now realizes the importance of a funky beat, a subtle line and most important of all A TIGHT GROOVE!!!After a year in Chicago, where he was enrolled as a student in the Columbia College school of Music as a jazz studies student, he dropped out and returned to Detroit to pursue a career as a fulltime musician and teacher. His current musical endeavors include work with; Remedy and The Wall Clocks. During his time as a performer he has shared the stage with groups such as; Tesla, Candlebox, Bret Michaels, The Sick Puppies, 3 Doors Down and many others.

I like to cater specific methods to each student because they all have different learning styles. I have had students that learned faster by aurally, rather than visually. Sometimes I like to combine ear training with learning new pieces rather than strict sheet music reading. Some students enjoy reading music and find that it is easier for them. Piano Adventures by Faber and Faber are one of my favorite method book series to go to when teaching piano. I also enjoy method books by Denes Agay.

Being a teacher is by far one of the most rewarding choices that I have ever made. Seeing a students growth and development is absolutely astounding. I believe that each student is very individualized, and no student learns exactly the same as another. As a teacher, I believe that I need to constantly be adaptable and adjustable to each student's needs. I also want the student to enjoy the learning process; it is important that the student knows that he or she is making achievements and enjoys the rewards of his or her hard work.

I let the student decide what the lesson is to be like. There are a lot of things to cover, but I will adapt what I think is the best teaching style for the student based on things like what he or she wants to learn. If you are interested in electronic music production, I can even teach lessons in Ableton Live. I am very well versed in all aspects of pro audio and would love to share and teach my knowledge. I hope you choose me to be your teacher, because I am a fun, caring, and responsible teacher.

...was interesting about it was discovering that the blues still sounds like the blues even when the harmony is removed. The blues progression is so strong that all you need is the rhythm. Speaking of the blues not needing harmony, you should practice all of the above in twelve keys. The blues progression is arguably the most important progression in jazz and probably one of the most important progressions in all of music. If you listen for it, you’ll hear it present itself in a lot of popular music. During the Bebop Era in the 1940s, learning songs in twelve keys became an essential... Read More

Double the 440 vibrations per second from A 440 and you’ll get a higher A note of A880, which is an interval of an octave.     Intervals   Intervals are the differences between pitches. Understanding the relationships between pitches is the bedrock of music theory. Let’s get back to A440. When you play A440, the first secondary note you hear is A880, and the second note you hear is E660. E 660 is exactly halfway between A440 and A880.
