Cello, Violin, Viola

Nicholas is a professional cellist that has studied since the age of 9. He has now been teaching the cello, viola, and violin for the past seven years for students of all ages, beginner to pre-college level.

Throughout Nicholas’s career, he has been an active member of Honors Orchestras, Youth Symphonies, Chamber ensembles, Opera Symphonies, and his university’s symphony. His music consists of mostly a classical nature with some contemporary and popular music ensembles.

After High School, Nicholas applied to Florida State University, The University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and Georgia State University, and was offered scholarships to all three. He chose Georgia State University, where he was awarded the Gerschefski/Reader Cello Scholarship.

Nicholas trained for three years at Georgia State University under the renowned cellist Martha Gerschefski (former Vice-Principal of the NSO). He also trained under Christopher Rex, the current principal cellist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for two more years in College. Nicholas now holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance at Georgia State University.

In lessons, Nicholas emphasizes relaxation while playing, along with a full knowledge of how sounds are made and why what you do creates beautiful (or not so beautiful) sound. Through relaxation and understanding, he believes all students can develop at their full potential.
