Nick Bottini has been teaching my son saxophone for the last 2 years. He is an excellent teacher, patient encouraging and very enthusiastic. I would not hesitate to recommend his saxophone lessons ,I am delighted with the progress my son has made under his guidance.

Nick is a unique teacher in that as you learn the technical elements of your instrument, he actively challenges you to view it in different ways and to take the technical elements you learn in a class and put them into practice, whether that be through improving your improvisation and solo techniques, to knowing when not to overplay and respect what the music needs rather than letting your ego get in the way.

Nick has this amazing ability to stay positive no matter what the circumstance. When leading group sessions he is inclusive, encouraging everyone in the room to just have a go and setting the right tone for some fantastic music making. He will always point out what you did well and will give you very constructive feedback on how to improve in a whole range of areas. On a one to one basis, he applies a level of consistency in teaching that allows you to make good progress, yet always has something new that will make you leave the lesson feeling inspired. He takes a very modern and positive approach to life and teaching that leaves you looking forward to your next session with him.

Nick has developed a very thorough teaching method which encourages students to internalise their music and to then play what they feel. Highly recommended.

I got so much out of the sessions with Nick, more than I expected. He is a revolutionary with an incredibly clear and powerful insight into how we function as human beings. I’m a much happier and sanguine musician for it.

Nick opens up realms of possibilities, whilst our immediate reaction is to see the world as we always do. Totally positive experience speaking with him, and learning more about the inside out philosophy of being. ​

I had a coaching session with Nick while dealing with something that seemed stressful, but after just that one session I saw something new that changed my whole experience of what was going on.

Nick is a warm, engaging coach. A deep listener who, who points you towards your own thinking. Connection and space for your own fresh thinking is easy with Nick.

Nick is one of those musicians, teachers and writers able to communicate not only by wise words and guidances, but also by setting an example and demonstrating how to apply what they say. His coaching is something you need if you are a performer and you have doubts about any “what, how, when and if”. His help is instant.

Nick is really present and had an ability to see me and hold a space for me to see myself. Together we could then explore possible solutions and ways of action. Gently and effortlessly and with a sprinkle of laughter. So, if you get a chance to spend some time with Nick, I would recommend you take it.

Coach Nick is a bit unusual as when I had the coaching from him I felt that I was deeply connected as he listens from a place where there is no judgement. You feel that you are creating something new. I personally felt Peace and in that stillness you get to witness some new insights and you can take a decision yourself and he just ensures that he give a nudge at the right place and direction. It was a great experience and I would recommend it for everyone.

During only one session with Nick I have resolved what has been getting in my way massively for years. Since I spoke to Nick I’m not judging myself so much, it’s easier for me to let go of whatever happens, learn from it and go forward. I’m experiencing more peace of mind than I can remember for a long time.

However much I “know” and understand about how our minds and our realities acutally work – I still come across “blind spots” – and that’s where coaching is so much fun – helping to experience more clarity more easily. So thanks Nick – I knew something was happening during the coaching – even though I wasn’t sure what it was in the moment - I just knew I was experiencing some great feelings. Afterwards I found it so much easier to get on with writing and creating in so many ways – when previously I seemed to have been struggling. I have no idea what changed or how – but I don’t need to – I love the way this works!

Nick listened to me download the twists and turns of my thinking and I pretty much said “pick the bones out of that!”. Instead of trying to do that, or get me to focus on one goal for the session he listened and listened. He gently commented on there being a lot of thought around this and asked where I thought it came from. Sounds like a simple question but it reached through the noise of my mind and I could feel the tension melt away. I felt safe, connected, understood and able to open up to my own insights in ways I couldn’t do on my own.

Nick is an experienced coach with a natural and relaxed approach. I found my session with Nick very calming, but also very useful by helping me see things more clearly. I came away feeling reassured and relieved, with some clear actions to take. I’d highly recommend Nick.

Nick is one of those guys who really listens. In conversations he makes you feel like you’re talking to an old friend. His dedication and presence is first rate. He gives you the feeling like anything is possible.
