About Nicklas

Since I was young my love of music and helping others understand it has been a passion for more than four decades. I have studied privately and school music programs, maintaining a high standard to learn more and play the orchestral instruments well.

My awards are numerous, including talent shows, school graduations, TV and radio shows, Monterey Jazz Fest scholarship, sound tracks for film, four Billboard songwriting awards, Youth Music Monterey tutor, 40 songs with BMI and many happy students who have become pros.

My work has always been as a musician/teacher/composer/transcriber and owned my own studio in 3 Monterey County locations. My history goes unblemished and reputation is well known for helping kids and adults for short to long term study. Most students are really playing in the first few weeks. Thanks, Nick

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I have forty songs of various difficulty registered with BMI and I started writing sheet music/songs at age 10. Numerous clients needing song completion/copyright/recording to my credit over 40 years. I have written 4 books on various subjects in music, and published.

I have 40 years' experience performing professionally on the flute and I have a degree by a Community College with a Lifetime Credential in music, on all levels. Dozens of past students reached their goals and/or won scholarships, etc.

Guitar

My guitar students have ranged from beginner to advanced and mostly have gone on to teach and perform professionally. I've studied most string instruments and their histories. Many students have learned to improvise and compose to a high standard and record with major artists.
