Nikos offers private lessons in piano, improvisation, and composition to students of all ages and skill levels in person in Portland, OR and online via Zoom/Skype. He also teaches the Taubman Approach to piano, a comprehensive study of alignment and movement at the instrument that helps prevent and overcome injury and technical limitations. 


Nikos is enrolled in the Golandsky Institute's Professional Training Program. To learn more about the Taubman Approach you can visit the Golandsky Institute's website here.

Nikos came to the Taubman Approach in 2009 when he was a jazz piano performance major at USC's Thornton School of Music and developed a debilitating injury in both his arms that prevented him from playing without intense pain. After trying multiple therapies and medical procedures short of surgery, Nikos found the Taubman Approach and his study with Master Teacher, Robert Durso, cured him of his pain and allowed him to continue to develop his career as a pianist and composer.
