2012 - BGSU Full Tuition Scholarship

Overview:
Music has always been my full-time profession. At the age of 13 I started playing bass in local bands professionally. After high school, I embarked on a collegiate musical journey, which led me to stays at Columbia College in Chicago, Bowling Green State University (where I received a full tuition scholarship) and Wayne State University. During that time, I have always kept up a busy lesson studio and performance schedule. During the last 8 years I have performed over 150 times per year, all over the country.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching when I was 16 years old at a studio in Dearborn Heights. I have since worked at several studios around the metro-Detroit area and since 2012 have been teaching out of my home and online. Since the inception of my teaching career I have worked to enhance my techniques and conveyance of information through various collegiate and workshop experiences. One common thread holds true; I am aiming to instill in all my students, the same passion that I bring to every musical endeavor I embark on.
METHODS USED
I believe that in order to effectively teach, one must also do. My extensive performance background allows me to read a student to see what their goals might be and custom fit a curriculum around them. Sometimes a method book is the right way to go. Books such as the Alfred series and Hal Leonard often offer easily attainable goals for younger students. However, it is always important to listen to one's students to find out what music makes them passionate and make sure to weave that into the practice of good technique, and theory.
LESSON STYLE
Just as every player has their own musical personality and voice, so too does every lesson that Nicholas gives. In a supportive, patient environment, every lesson is custom tailored to the student. Being musical is inherent to being human, so when a students’ musical abilities fail to progress, it is the teaching method that has failed, not the student. While my educational background allows me to offer my students a high level of instruction in instrumental technique, my first priority with every student is to foster their love and understanding of music through playing their instrument.

Nicholas is very punctual, great at communicating, and my son (receiving lessons) thinks he is one of the most awesome people he has ever met! Nicholas is patient, encouraging, and keeps the lessons fun.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.

Ok
