About this pro

Played guitar as a little kid. Took a lesson when I was six. They said don’t bring him back. Took anotherlesson in high school but the guy was boring. By High School I was playing every day and pretty much everyday since.

After a couple years of college I joined a Rock Musical in which I was an actor and played guitar and sang and wrote songs. We played in Houston, Atlanta, and off Broadway at the New York Shakespeare Festival Theater. We also toured Europe. Paris London Munich Berlin Dubrovnik, Amsterdam The Hague, and many more… 

After touring with the play I became music major at St. Thomas University in Houston, TX.

I started teaching and playing out professionally and found that it was teaching that taught me the most and was the most fun!

I taught in Austin Texas at “Austin City Music” for Ten years and moved to Houston and taught at “Rockin’ Robin” for about another ten years.

I also teach piano and will teach voice and songwriting if you are already a student.

All of it.

    Nick is a solid musician. His musical skills are matched by his strength as a motivating teacher. Very professional. Best Ever!! by dsstanley at Citysearch Wow! What a positive guy! I've played guitar for over 30 years and have had some teachers who seem more interested in tearing my playing down rather than encouraging me. Nick is approachable and makes learning a lot of fun. He takes subjects that seem difficult and makes them understandable. Thanks Nick!! The Best! by spanktheplank at Citysearch I have been taking lessons from Nick for ten years, and he is hands down the best guitar teacher that I have had the privilege to study with. His lessons are always fun and lively, and I always learn a great deal about the guitar, music theory, and technique in the process. If you are just starting out, Nick will have you playing your favorite songs before you know it. If you are a more seasoned player, Nick will help you refine your playing and reach new levels of music making. A+ Always worth the lesson by edwardito at Citysearch If you ever have been stuck...Nick is the guy to get you over the hump. I always look forward to my lesson! Pros: patient, knowledgeable, great lesson plan Cons: none Nick's a great teacher by reprobatemind at Citysearch Nick has a understanding of the fretboard that will allow you to play any type of music anywhere on the guitar. Amazing! He's extremely knowledgeable yet downtoearth and friendly. If you are serious about learning to play guitar and not just learning to play some songs (although I'm sure he could teach you that as well) you owe it to yourself to call Nick for lessons.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

 First of all we are trying to have fun with the guitar. My first job lesson wise just to find out where you are and where you want to be and then design a program to get that done.

There are things that are true every time and there are things that you are just supposed to know. That's a good place to start.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was a music major in college and I have played and taught guitar all my life.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

 I teach one hour lessons as I don't think 30 minute lessons are effective. 4 one hour lessons is priced at $. I referred to This as a month, at the end of the fourth lesson we sign you up for four more. 


How did you get started teaching?

Teaching is fun. I took lessons for years and then just started teaching it was a natural step.

What types of students have you worked with?

 I have taught hundreds of students over the years so I guess I pretty much all types. That's one of the things that makes this job fun 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

 I played my original songs at a coffeehouse and all my friends showed up and we had a blast. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

 Come see me. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

If the student knew what questions to ask did he wouldn't need a teacher. I know what questions to ask and I will ask you when you get here.
