BM Rutgers University, MM Shenandoah University
Voice, Piano

Gifted with a resonant voice” (DCtheaterscene.com) Nicholas completed his Bachelors of Music at Rutgers University and his Masters of Music at Shenandoah University. He was selected to appear as part of Lorin Maazel’s Castelton festival for four seasons and has performed with many companies including the InSeries and Young Vic. He has been teaching in his private studio for over a decade and performs all over the country. Nick believes in a comprehensive approach to music that involves understanding the instrument, the composer, and the artist performing the piece. Along with teaching piano and voice, Nick is also a skilled choir conductor and acting coach.

Nick writes:

Hello wonderful people! I’m Nick and I love music. I also love lots of other things though. I love football (go Giants), I’m in several fantasy footballs leagues too! I also have a favorite “esports” team (TSM) Which is amazingly nerdy I know.

As a kid, I did a little bit of everything. Every sport I had time for, every club I could get in, and of course, the arts. They all slowly fell away until I was left with just the things I was most passionate about. Which were music and theater. I lept at any chance to get on stage and loved every minute of it.

Music has taken me some wonderful places and given me the opportunity to do some amazing things. I’ve gotten to sing at multiple Nationals games. I’ve been to the countries of Italy and Oman and all over the country because of music. I have been teaching for over ten years. I have also directed my own children’s choir for the last three, and have been working on several online children’s musicals during the pandemic. I can’t wait to meet you and explore some wonderful music together!
