I deal with students of all ages and skill levels, and varying interests. I like to tailor the experience for the student, and while I am well-versed in music theory and technique, my approach is a largely practical one - I want my students making music as soon as possible!
My name is Nick, and I am a guitarist and composer, originally hailing from Australia! I have lived in New York for three years now, and am excited to continue my passion for music and educating! Though I love to perform and compose, I have also spent eight years teaching and tutoring within music; with a focus on guitar (beginner to advanced, any level!), music theory and composition. I am fond of many different types of music - I grew up with classic rock and pop music but jazz and improvised music is my primary love and focus.
I am acutely aware of the importance educators had on my development as a musician and artist, without which I wouldn't be where I am today. Therefore I feel it is a responsibility, and a great one at that, to continue in this tradition. The arts are often sadly neglected in mainstream education - a true disservice to our development as individuals and members of the greater society in my opinion. I hope to be a proponent of change in this way.
I completed a Bachelor of Music (Performance) in 2016 at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, in my hometown of Adelaide, South Australia. In 2019, I graduated from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music's Masters of Music (Jazz Arts) program. I have taught in many institutions, both in New York and my native Australia. I have had experience in music centers, elementary and high schools, and colleges - providing me with a broad grasp of successful approaches in teaching students of widely varying age groups, levels and passions.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. I would love to discuss with you further, on how I can best help you achieve whatever musical goal you might have!
