    About Nicholas Galfond

    Nico received his first guitar at the age of eight and has been playing

    music ever since. When he was ten he started drum lessons and found

    it to be an excellent outlet for his creativity and energy. Throughout

    middle school and high school in South Florida, Nico played in concert

    bands, jazz bands, rock bands, marching bands, percussion ensembles,

    and many other groups in addition to taking lessons on various

    instruments, including guitar, bass, and drums.

    Before graduating from high school he was awarded the John Phillip

    Sousa Award, a Pathfinder Scholarship, and a Young Artist Award (which

    included a concerto performance with the Treasure Coast Symphony

    Orchestra) and then continued his education at the University of Florida.

    There, Nico received the Friends of Music Scholarship for four years

    before graduating with honors, earning a degree in Music Performance

    and continuing to play in various ensembles including the UF Wind

    Symphony and Sunshine Steelers Steeldrum Band. After relocating to

    Orlando, Nico has continued to perform with various groups and

    maintains a full teaching schedule with students of all ages on guitar,

    drums, ukulele, bass, and percussion.
