About Nick

My tutoring experience started in a very unconventional way. From 2005-2009 I played Semi-Professional Hockey as goalie. During that time, I made myself available to anyone who wanted to improve their skills at that position.
When I transitioned to Music, I had no concept of Music Theory or Music Production. I had to get extra help all the time and I was always intimidated by the concepts that were being discussed. When I started understanding what was being taught to me, as I did with hockey, I always made myself available to anyone who needed help. I've always loved sharing my knowledge and experience with anyone.

I have a Bachelors of Music in Commercial and Media Composition from Cal State Northridge. I write and produce my music out of my Thousand Oaks studio. For Music Production, I'm well acquainted to a variety of Digital Audio Workstations, Audio plug-ins, Audio Processing, Software instruments, simple and complex session management, MIDI Programing, programing MIDI Controllers, and more.
For Music Theory, I have a great knowledge of basic and advanced Music Theory such as music notation, Tonal Harmony, Chromatic Harmony, and Counterpoint.

I love contributing to the vast community of aspiring musicians through sharing my knowledge and experience with those who are in need of help. The fields Music Theory and Music Production are very intimidating subjects, and I feel I have a great ability to help people break down and understand these concepts. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
