Nikko graduated from Capilano University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies and has been building a reputation as a dedicated player with a thirst for exploring the nuances of all musical genres. This musical fluidity has allowed them to play in many different scenarios ranging from extensive international touring schedules with Juno-winning band Unleash The Archers to playing the Vancouver Jazz Festival five times with different local projects. Working as a session musician has led Nikko to being hired for recordings in state of the art studios such as Jacob Hansen Studios in Denmark and Dark Horse Recording in Nashville.
Nikko’s teaching places an emphasis on building a strong technical foundation while maintaining a warm and gentle environment. Lessons are curated to the individual needs of every student and are designed to spark joy and creativity.
