Nik has been teaching piano/music in Los Angeles for over ten years. With 25 years experience as a musician he enjoys passing on his knowledge of genres ranging from traditional Classical to Pop/Hip-Hop and R&B. He believes “whether a student is 5 or 95 they should all have a chance to enjoy the gift of becoming a musician”. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Music History from UCLA. Nik’s piano teaching style focuses on obtaining a high proficiency of fundamentals, learning to read music, basic music theory, ear training, and improvisation. He is also highly skilled in music composition/production and digital multitrack recording. He has produced songs for many local recording artists. When he’s not busy teaching and making music he enjoys relaxing trips to the beach, playing basketball, and working out at the gym.
