Hi! My name is Nicholas. I am a highly-trained, multi-instrumental musician. I graduated the New School of Jazz in 2012. I play classical, jazz and pretty much every genre. I make the lessons fun and engaging for all students. My yoga teaching style is very slow and personal, not a sweaty vinyasa style that most beginners are familiar with (think Yoga to the People). I aim to teach you skills that you can utilize daily at home, with our weekly lesson checking in and building on that. We will work with healing any specific concerns and building an internal physical and mental strength that will go on to serve your daily life. I have a shared s ... View Profile

My service stands out because I have successfully taught people who previously failed with other teachers. For example, my plumber came to fix a leak while I was finishing up a lesson. I asked him if he ever thought of playing guitar. He said he actually took guitar lessons from two teachers but he failed. He quit and he decided guitar wasn't a thing he could do. So I said take some lessons with me. I'll give you a free lesson right now. He took the lesson and he came back for many more and he got really good. He could play many complicated songs and solos too. So the teacher really does make a big difference. ... View Profile

I have been teaching for over 10 years. I teach privately full-time and run my own company. I personally hire other enthusiastic and experienced music teachers to work with me. I believe learning music should be fun. While it also takes hard work and dedication, a student must first enjoy music in order to continue and progress. My teachers and I incorporate well-known songs into lessons so that students can relate to what they are learning. We also use many of our own games and worksheets to keep students engaged at all times. We offer many different types of lessons including voice, piano, guitar, and songwriting.  ... View Profile

Even if you have never held a guitar before, I will have you jamming by the end of our first lesson. I don't use note names, but instead teach you to improvise in every key using memorable, movable patterns on the fretboard. I’ll show you how to find the key of any given song so that you can begin playing along with your favorites in your free time using the patterns I’ve shown you.
