About Nick F. Download Resume

I have been immersed in music for the past 7 years, playing in such venues as the 9:30 Club, Velvet Lounge, Bourbon Street Live, and Jaxx Nightclub. I am currently studying with professional Jazz guitarist Ken Navarro to continue building my skills and knowledge.

I specialize in teaching bass, guitar, piano, and voice, with a love for Jazz, Funk, Pop, Rock, and Classical among other genres. Playing music is all about connecting with your musical voice and I encourage students to discover what inspires them personally. Finding and developing this inspiration is tremendously fun and rewarding, and leads to both musical and personal growth. Creating music brings me to life, and there is nothing I want more than to share this passion with others.

Why I Work Well with Kids

Kids can have fun doing just about anything, and to me, there’s nothing more fun than music! I have worked with kids of many ages and enjoy their enthusiasm, energy, and free-spirited creativity. I have great patience and love encouraging kids to make connections and learn something new.
