Creative Guitar and Composition
Biography : Nick is a fourth generation musician, having the collective experience of the big band, bebop and fusion eras in his blood. Growing up in an off-the-grid home in the densely forested areas of Haliburton Ontario, he found he had time to scrutinize the subtleties of stringed instruments and percussion. Playing in a variety of bands in his youth, the pursuit of higher learning led him to university where his studies focused on jazz guitar and music technology. After graduating with a BA Hons., Nick augmented his education by taking private ear-training and classical harmony lessons amidst periods of world travel. Residing in Guelph, Nick is an active composer, studio musician, educator and performing artist which has led him to work with dance troupes, video game companies, stage productions, film and tv, as well as numerous bands. Recently, Nick has been working from his home writing music on a freelance basis, doing external studio work and playing in various ensembles. He also teaches guitar and manages the lesson program at Folkway Music in Guelph and has a jazz/classical radio show on Cfru 93.3 called Crossover.

Been visiting a few studios over the last few months, but now getting some lesson resources online for guitar students. Also, filming some more guitar videos for Folkway Music this week – I am working on some short pieces to play on specific instruments.
