Born in 1957, Nick Minnion grew up to a soundtrack of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Nick was first given a guitar at the age of eight, but he wasn’t a natural. Today, he says that he’s so patient with his pupils because he knows how difficult learning guitar can be.
Although he learned the trumpet in high school (to meet girls in the local orchestra), Nick was dropped not long after because there were too many trumpet players – presumably other boys who had the same idea! However, his passion for music didn’t fade, and over the years Nick has gained a strong working knowledge of the principles of music.
He listens to anything from Beethoven to Nirvana – and everything in between! His broad musical tastes mean he has mastered the guitar in a variety of styles and genres.
