My name is Nicholas and I am a drummer. I have been playing for over 20 years, my teachers include Ron Fox, John Bailey and esteemed Jazz drummer Amante Caruana.
I play jazz, rock, jam band music and classical percussion. I play regularly with several groups throughout Long Island and have opened for several well known bands including the Gin Blossoms.
Music has been an anchor in my life. I have struggled with academics but music gave me a focus, a purpose, it gave me a sense of confidence. That is what I want to be able to share with my students, the things that music gave to me, enjoyment, achievement, purpose, confidence, focus, and discipline.
I am well versed in many genres of music and am skilled at written charts and improvisation.

I have been playing the drums for over 20 years. I studied as a child with Jazz drummer Amante Caruana, Ron Fox and John Bailey.
I have played for jazz bands and marching bands but also have experience performing in the percussion section of bands and wind ensembles.
I currently play with several active groups and have opened for numerous famous bands including the Gin Blossoms.
I love working with children and adults. I have always struggled with academics and music was a way to focus myself and built my confidence. I want to be able to provide that same kind of enjoyment, achievement and confidence with all of my students of any age.
