Nicholas has taught students from ages three to 50 and believes everyone has the ability to learn. As a paraprofessional they’ve worked with students throughout the autism spectrum and strive to ensure every student has the resources they need to reach their goals.
In lessons, Nicholas aims to emulate artist Robert Irwin’s teaching in “blending the hard question and the light touch”. This approach allows students to explore their instrument and experiment with ideas that keep lessons engaging and fun.

In their free time, they enjoy drinking coffee, reading books, and listening to Punch Brothers records.
