Review for

It is my pleasure to write a review about Nick’s talent as a drum teacher as well as a professional musician. Nick has had an indelible impact on my son and family. My son was showing some talent on his drum line in high school and seemed to be outgrowing his teacher. We asked our high school band leader who the best was and he immediately pointed to Nick. At my son’s first lesson Nick told him that he is good but he is going to have to relearn the basics of drum line percussion. This launched my son into a wonderful ride. He became the section of his high school drum line and then was recruited to play for the University of Washington band. Our decision to go with Nick influenced not only my son as a musician but his college selection.

As a drummer myself, I am aware that Nick is highly regarded in the music community. He is playing for a first class band that seems to be taking off and he has a huge range of genres.
