Nick has been performing and recording music for 15 years. Over that time he’s developed a passion for teaching others. Whether new to the craft or a seasoned player Nick’s objective is simple: to make the complex simple to understand so anyone can learn. He seeks to demystify the sometimes confusing subject of music theory and application as well as tailor his lessons to meet the individual needs of each student from learning a simple song to becoming a professional touring musician. With a background in music production, touring, and writing, Nick is equipped to help you meet your goals.
Debbie Karst has played the piano for 44 years and taught for 32 years. She has learned a classical and chord approach and loves improvisation. She currently plays for her local church and for special occasions including weddings.
Mike Ingalls has always been a man of music. He was introduced to music at a young age and while in high school played in All-State Orchestras in two states. After an abortive start in Physics, Mike went to Baldwin Wallace College and finished a Bachelor of Music degree with a major in cello while also developing an appetite for improvisatory and alternative playing that continues to this day.
After a twenty-year career in business, Ingalls went back to his first love, making and teaching music. He teaches cello and violin and spends much time in schools, teaching and conducting special seminars. He has been Principal Cello with the Welsh Hills Symphony, the Land of Legend Philharmonic, and the Southeast Ohio Symphony. He has played bluegrass tunes on Prairie Home Companion..
