Nicholas Michalopoulos was trained at Peabody and Paris Conservatories. He has been teaching classical and jazz piano as well as composition for almost six years. He teaches piano using a technique that not only allows students to quickly gain a comfort level with the instrument, but permits them to start playing pieces soon after they begin study. His course of unique training also provides harmonic and theoretical understanding of music that increases a student's ability to perform and interpret music. Mr. Michalopoulos’ current student body is diversified among students studying classical piano and those who are studying jazz and composition. He believes in tailoring the course of study around the student's interests and modifies his approach accordingly.
