Student Reviews

Edison , NJ

"Mr.Nick has been teaching me for quite some time. He teaches songs in different languages which include English, German, Italian, and French. He helps me pronounce the words from other languages very fluently. He says lots of great compliments about me during my class time. While teaching international songs, he translates the meanings for the words. I am really enjoying his class. I would recommend Mr.Nick to all my friends."

Middlesex, NJ

Nick is a wonderful vocal teacher with a pleasant disposition. He has been providing me with voice lessons for more than a year. I have much improved with his help. Having someone who can bring their own vast vocal experience and musical knowledge is a huge bonus. Encouraging and very patient!"

Lebanon, NJ

"Throughout the last year I have seen a huge improvement in my singing and music theory skills. At the beginning of my lessons I was not able to site read or do tonal memory, now I can do both successfully! Also I have worked my way up to sing arias! He is a wonderful teacher! "
