Nic Brown

Nic Brown is a music educator, guitarist, and singer. In the decade since he began his guitar studies, Nic has become well-acquainted with many of the styles practiced on the instrument, including classical, jazz, rock, pop, folk, and rhythm and blues. While in college, he studied classical guitar with Michael Newman and Joseph Blumetti, as well as jazz guitar with Larry Barbee. During this time, he also participated in numerous performances (both on guitar and in choral ensembles) and master classes in the Northeastern United States. As an educator, Nic believes in fostering artistic appreciation and musical independence by exposing students to a varied repertoire in all styles and encouraging critical thinking.
 
Nic holds a Bachelor of Music degree from The College of New Jersey and an Associate of Fine Arts degree from Raritan Valley Community College. A proponent of lifelong learning and continued education, he plans to eventually return to school to pursue graduate-level degrees in guitar performance and music theory pedagogy.
