Nick Palan

“Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” — Harvey Mackay

That pretty much describes what Nicolas Palan has done. His love for music, and the guitar, developed early in his life and continued to grow as he got older.

Even before he graduated from high school, he knew what he wanted to do—play the guitar professionally, and share his passion with others by becoming a teacher. He enrolled in the University of Denver’s prestigious Lamont School of Music where he earned a Bachelor of Music degree in 2002. He completed his Master’s Degree in Guitar Performance in 2005 at the University of Northern Colorado.

His training also includes certification in the Suzuki method for early childhood instruction, and he is a registered teacher of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. Nicolas believes that the best teachers are those who never stop learning, and he continues to pursue his studies in guitar and instruction in the Alexander Technique.

Besides his personal accomplishments and education, Nick’s strongest attribute as a teacher may well be his enduring patience. His easy-going style of teaching is much enjoyed and appreciated by his students,who
range in age from three to 72.
