Piano | Duluth, Grayson

Nik received a Bachelors in piano performance from Florida State University, a Masters in piano performance from the University of Georgia, and a Masters in music theory at Indiana.University. Now he is currently preparing to defend his thesis at IU for a Doctorate in music theory. While working on his PhD, Nik had the opportunity to teach many undergraduate music theory courses. He also taught sight-singing, ear training, and keyboard skills. Initially self-taught, Nik strives to create an enjoyable learning environment where students can self-discover and cultivate independent thinking skills. In addition to fostering technical ability and listening skills, Nik promotes the development of musical understanding: knowledge of the rules, grammars, and conventions that underlie the music. Recognizing the individuality of each learner, he also adopts a flexible approach, tailoring the lessons to meet the needs, goals, and learning style of each student. Whether you want to become a concert pianist or simply want to play for your own enjoyment, Nik can help guide you down the right path.

“Music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
- Billy Joel
