"Nicholas has the ability to create caring and nurturing working relationships with young artists based on mutual respect. He inspires and absolutely understands the teacher/student code of conduct and the responsibility a lecturer carries in order to create a safe working environment. He is an exceptional vocalist in his own right, is highly regarded as a conductor, composer and accompanist and has the ability to ‘teach from the keyboard’ – a rare quality. His knowledge of vocal pedagogy is incomparable." - PHILIP QUAST
