About Me

Im a guitarist originally from Richmond Virginia who has lived and played guitar in Tampa, Miami and Sarasota Fl, and now I teach guitar techniques to musicians in Nashville, Tennessee. And have a teaching studio on N. Market St. in Chattanooga!
As a young guitarist (8 yrs to 12) I was learning Beatle songs, but soon heard Johnny Winter, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and was taken by storm, I wanted to play like those guys! So I did. But no longer than i seemed to plateau, along came Yngwie Malmsteen, Eddie VanHalen, Paul Gilbert and the whole technical approach to guitar became my infatuation, I wanted to play like those guys now! Here I am over 45 years of guitar techniques later teaching other young guitarist how to become GUITAR GODS.

Student Reviews




Nasville, TN

Nic is undeniably one of the most impressive guitar players I've seen in Nashville. I would highly recommend him to anyone! JB




Nashville, TN

Nic is showing me how to play blues and rock. He can play any song on the radio. Im learning how to sing harmonies and playing leads. Nic has a great band and I got to come over and see them practice. It was awsome too.




Nashville, TN

Nic has been teaching my 14 year old son Paul for 12 wks now and I've seen a dramatic improvement in his playing. I really appreciate the one on one attention he gives Paul. I can see how my son admires Nic and he is anxious every week to show off what he can do from the week prior. My son's overall focus has gone from video games to singing and performing for anyone who'll listen. I would recommend him to any parent who has a child interested in guitar. Dana Peacotte




Nashville, TN

I had been playing guitar for 6 years before I decided to try guitar lesson because I was in a plateau with my playing. Nic showed me some simple fretboard concepts that totally expanded my way of visualizing things and my soloing skills have skyrocketed! I am so stoked and how nimble I have become and this new approach has helped my overall knowlege of the pentatonic phrases for blues. Im have much more fun playing now and my friends admire my playing finally.




Nashville, TN

Nic is an awesome player! His guitar playing is awesome to watch. I have learned some really cool things. I can play a few songs and am learning how to do fingerpicking styles now.
