Nicholas Deek grew up in a very musical family.  His mother, herself an excellent pianist, gave Nicholas his first piano lessons, and at nineteen he performed his first public solo concert in front of 200 people. In 2013, Nicholas obtained his A.R.C.T diploma in Piano Performance with the Royal Conservatory of Toronto.  He holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from the University of Ottawa, where he studied piano with Dr. Stéphane Lemelin and Andrew Tunis. His other piano teachers include Judy Ginsburg, Sandra Webster, Fred Lacroix, and David Jalbert.  

Nicholas has participated in the Canada Music Competition, and Kiwanis Music Festival.  He has performed in classical & contemporary chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, as well as accompanied singers and instrumentalists. With a passion for chamber music, Nicholas has been a guest artist in the Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival in St. John's, Newfoundland. He has participated in chamber masterclasses with members of the Gryphon Trio & Afiara String Quartet, as well as solo masterclasses with Jamie Parker and Jean-Paul Sévilla.  In 2013, he performed in a solo benefit concert for Just Equipping, an organization that provides relief to refugees in Rwanda.

As a performer, Nicholas connects with audiences in delivering elegant and passionate performances in a wide range of styles and genres. He has been the featured soloist at various events including weddings, funerals, cocktail hours, fundraisers, Christmas parties, and church services.  He has performed at Embassies, the Governor General's Residence, and at various clubs and organizations. Nicholas is part of a great Classical trio (violin and cello), and offers performances with singers.

Nicholas comes equipped with a portable electric piano inlcuding an amp, if needed.

With a set list of over 400 songs, Nicholas can play standards from Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, and the Beatles. Adding live music will enhance and enliven your party or cocktail hour.

I hired Nicholas to play background music at a Mother's Day brunch for 20 people in my home. Nicholas is first and foremost extremely talented. Importantly though he fit in perfectly, engaging with my guests, responding to requests and overall creating just the mood I wanted. At the end of the event he played a showpiece Mozart that everyone appreciated. Throughout the event I had many comments about how much his play added to the ambience of the event. Well done Nicholas.
