Niko hits the road

Wow! It’s been more than a year since I’ve been in school, which took me by surprise. I’ve been teaching, teching, and touring more than I ever was able during class, which has been equal parts fulfilling and eye-opening. However, I crave the structure, camaraderie, and growth that the academic environment engenders, so I’m very happy to be joining the masters program at the University of Missouri this autumn. Plus, as an assistant at the New Music Institute, I’ll have opportunities to continue to grow as a teacher and audio engineer. Sweet!

Like I said, I’ve been playing a lot, so in the meantime, I’m doing my best to bring my tunes to you (classical compositions, rock tunes, and even tuba quartet polka arrangements). I’m so so so SO lucky to be able to travel with the inCREDIBLE musicians that I do, so it’s hard to leave Grand Rapids, which has been so lovely to me.

Come say hello! Let us serenade you!
