About Nicholas K.
I've been playing guitar and bass for over 25 years and teaching for around 15 years, as well as recording and producing music for many years also.
After completing the M(Sc.) Sound Design course at the University of Edinburgh, I've also worked producing sound and music for films, games, animations, products and installations.
I’ve taught an extremely diverse range of students various styles of guitar, bass and music production, ranging in age from 7 to 70+.
I previously taught a component of the M(Sc.) Sound Design course at the University of Edinburgh that focussed on designing sound for games and other interactive environments/platforms.
I also offer music technology support services locally. I have helped clients get to grips with a range of gear including software, interfaces, P.A., synthesizers, speakers and mixers.
I'm familiar with a wide variety of audio-related software packages, including Ableton Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, Reason and MAX/MSP. I have some proficiency doing audio-related programming for the iOS platform.

I offer a flexible approach that acknowledges that every student has unique abilities, experience and requirements. Many students benefit from and enjoy not only learning songs and passing exams, but also learning about composing and producing their own music, improvising on the instrument, how it relates to other instruments in an ensemble or band and it’s broader context in the world.
I'm punctual, professional and patient.
I try to help the student achieve the maximum benefit from their lesson time, as well as helping them to plan a solid schedule of practise between lessons.
I have an up-to-date PVG (protection of vulnerable groups) scheme certificate from Disclosure Scotland, a copy of which I am happy to provide on request.
