Biography

Currently based in Birmingham, UK, Nick is a first class graduate of the Birmingham Conservatoire and has played at a variety of venues across the city including: the Town Hall, the Adrian Boult Hall, Symphony Hall and has been heard live on BBC 2 and BBC Radio 3. He currently performs with his own quartet featuring pianist Charlie Bates, bassist Aram Bahmaie and drummer Charlie Johnson. Nick is also a sideman in the Alex Stride Quintet, the Dave Tibbitts Sextet and can be seen gigging regularly with the multi award winning Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra (MYJO).

Nick has a wealth of experience working in education. Being an educator on Cheltenham Festival's 'Musicate' program and a Learning Trainee at the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG), Nick has and continues to receive advanced training from leaders in the field of music education, amplifying his accomplished approach to teaching. His portfolio of students are forever being inspired and encouraged to achieve their goals whether they be in music or life.

Highlights of Nicks career so far include performing with the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra live on BBC2 from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre as part of Shakespeare Live, celebrating 400 years since the death of the great play-write. Doubling as a clarinetist, Nick was a featured soloist on their performance alongside the Birmingham Royal Ballet of Duke Ellington’s, Black and Tan Fantasy.

When learning an instrument, I believe there is a need to integrate determination with enjoyment so the student can develop a sense of self-discipline, encouraging regular and healthy practice as well as exposing students to the absolute enjoyment and pleasure music brings. Throughout my own education, I've been delighted to share my journey with teachers who have inspired me but I've also found myself with teachers who have been unimaginative and unstimulating, therefore developing a complex understanding of what encourages students and what hinders them. Being a young adult who is active in the music scene across the UK, interested in all types of music, there is nothing more that I love more than seeing the progression of one of my own students, becoming more comfortable and natural on their instrument.
