Nick's playing is sensitive, beautiful and profoundly pleasing as he connects with his audience through the piano. You will immediately feel comfortable, relaxed and in a "new zone" far away from the trials of the day.

A few of Nick's most recent performances include corporate events at "Lowes Miami Beach Hotel" and The Renaissance Crusieport Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, FL, a wedding ceremony and reception at "The Boatyard Restaurant, a wedding reception at "The Barnacle" in Miami, private parties at "The Parkland Golf & Country Club" in Parkland, FL, "The Pelican Bay Foundation Community Center" in Naples FL, and "L'Hermitage" in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Additionally Nick plays weekly at the "Cleveland Clinic" in Weston, FL.

Nick's clients have been very pleased with his playing and have mentioned the delight in having their guests compliment his playing. Nick plays a variety of music such as familiar jazz standards like "Misty", "Fly Me To The Moon"; show tunes like "One" and "I Dreamed A Dream"; hit songs from the movies like "Unchained Melody" from Ghost, "When I Fall in Love" from Sleepless in Seattle, and contemporary hit tunes like "All of Me" by John Legend, "Crazy For You" by Adele and "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. Check out Nick's complete song list.

Nick is currently writing and arranging music as he performs locally in the South Florida area. Nick offers a fresh approach to the songs he plays by improvising which brings a new, spontaneous and wonderfully personal dimension to the music. Nick's playing is sometimes jazzy as in "Georgia", at other times poignant as in the standard "Autumn Leaves" or tender as in "Unchained Melody" from the movie "Ghost". Take a moment to enjoy the sampler platter of Nick's style of playing and then book Nick for your next event.

Nick's background includes a Bachelor of Music degree from the Catholic University of America School of Music and private study of music composition in New York City with Pulitzer Prize nominee Frank Retzel, Ph. D. Nick was also the founding conductor of the Audubon Symphony Orchestra located in the Philadelphia, PA area. Nick taught piano for over 25 years and is President emeritus of the Minnesota River Valley Music Teachers Association. Nick also served as state and national liaison of the Minneapolis Music Teacher Forum.

Many of Nick's original compositions have been awarded performances through national and international competition and Nick has many original compositions and arrangements that are sold through Sheet Music Plus (based in California) and MusicaNEO (based in Switzerland) and J. W. Pepper and Son, Inc. (based in Philadelphia). Two of Nick's original compositions were selected for inclusion in the Archives and Manuscript Division of the New York City Public Library. Many of Nick's compositions and arrangements have received excellent reviews in the music trade journals.

Nick was a great addition to my daughters' Mitzvah. He created a wonderful ambience that really set the tone for our event. Nick is a fantastic piano player and I couldn't recommend him more.

Thank you Mindy for the great review. It was a pleasure to work with you and your husband. I could see that you put in a great deal of work and effort to make the party a success for your girls. It was clear that everyone was enjoying themselves. Thank you again for hiring me and I am glad your party was such a success.
