Nick is a dedicated music teacher specializing in voice and is very excited to be completing his first year as a Music Together teacher.
He's ecstatic about the opportunity to help keep music alive and thriving in families' homes.
A Bay Area native, he discovered his profound passion for singing when he joined the high school choir during his freshman year. Nick began teaching and developing his own private voice and piano studio in his early twenties, and he's reminded on a daily basis how important music is in peoples' lives.
For Nick, singing and making music is a key element to feeling happy and fulfilled. He can't imagine life without music, like imagining life without breathing air or drinking water. Through teaching, he has discovered this is the case for many people, and nothing brings him more joy than helping people nurture and hone their skills in such a vital aspect of the human experience.
Nick received his Bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on Vocal Performance from CSU East Bay in Hayward. During his schooling, he performed in numerous musicals and operas and put on multiple solo recitals. Upon graduating, he focused mainly on developing his private voice and piano studio. He works as vocal coach for both Campolindo and Miramonte High Schools in Moraga and Orinda, CA, respectively, and is also one of the private voice teachers for the Young Women's Choral Projects in San Francisco.
Nick heard about Music Together through a colleague and was quickly drawn to the idea of keeping music alive in the community through creating music with families. He wholeheartedly believes that Music Together can have a remarkable impact not only on families but on the community as a whole. Nick is a registered Music Together teacher.
