About this pro

Hello, I started playing guitar in my teenage years and opened up my own business at the age of 18. Immediately fell in love with buisness,guitar, and music. After a few years of learning from the great guitarists such as, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B. King, and the great jazz master Pat Matheny, I quickly realized I wanted to show my friends and family. My friends couldn’t believe it, and from then on, I knew I had a business in helping people improve their skill sets.

It is my honor and privileage to teach the beautiful art of guitar. Guitar has taught me dedication and hard work, but most of all it has showed me that when you play an instrument it's a way to connect to beyond words. A place where you can express how you feel, and a place in your mind where you grow and love.

    My daughter and her friend dix weekly guitar lessons with Nicky until he moved out of the area. He was on time, very patient with the girls, and helped them to understand the very basics of guitar as each of them never played before. He came to our home and did back to back sessions with both girls and even allowed them to do it together when they were mastering their songs. The girls loved him and were very sad when he moved away.

    Nicky was my daughter’s first guitar instructor. He was amazing with her...very patient, fun, and knowledgeable. And he’s an amazing musician! Highly recommended!

    He was smart, and very nice. Nicky taught me how to play chords and showed me how to be patient.
