Education & Outreach
Nicholas is passionate about inspiring the next generation and over the past decade has developed a series of exciting and inspiring workshops that he regularly delivers to schools and educational institutions across the country.
He has developed his dynamic series of workshops around varying themes including inspiration, imagination and inclusion.
Nicholas’ ability to relate to children of all ages along with his youth, spirit and humour make for an engaging and enjoyable session that leaves the class inspired, challenged and ready to look at things in a completely different way. He shares experiences of his own struggle and successes whilst telling anecdotes of people and places he has been involved with along the way.
“Nicholas came to the Royal Albert Hall and hosted a fantastic workshop as part of our education and outreach programme. His personal story was extremely engaging and had an inspirational impact on the students who went back to their schools enthusedand eager to work on their musical skills. Nicholas was a knowledgable and impressive speaker whose energy and piano playing lit up the room.”
Lucy Noble, Artistic and Commercial Director at Royal Albert Hall
“An absolute natural with the children- a real talent!”
Bev Steensma, Deputy Head, Ipswich School
“Nicholas was a huge hit in all of the nine schools that he delivered workshops to for the Cheltenham Music Festival Education Programme. Inspirational, engaging, enlightening, informative, frank; he held everyone’s attention completely. In the words of one pupil, ‘He was amazing, epic, awesome’; while this testimony from a Deputy Head sums up why Nicholas made such an impact in every school: ‘We have just changed our school motto ‘Believe Achieve,’ and Nicholas was a living example for everyone.’ I would not hesitate to work with Nicholas again.”
