Nicholas Orifici

VIOLIN, VIOLA, GUITAR, MANDOLIN Nicholas instructs violin, viola, guitar and mandolin as well as general music and music theory. He studied at Julliard and Mannes and has been teaching since 2004. Nicholas enjoys working with all ages and skill levels. He has performed professionally with symphonic orchestras such as The Lancaster Symphony, New York Pops and doctors Orchestra and has recorded strings for various professional projects including Little Maestros, The Dig and other musical projects.

Nick not only increases student’s skill levels but is wonderful in helping to boost their self- esteem and level of comfort in both playing and performing. He works with some of our youngest students as well as adults. Nick’s students make significant progress in their studies and enjoy playing solo and sometimes alongside Nick in our end of semester recitals. 

A caretaker of one of Nick’s students comments “Nick has been so supportive…giving attention that has boosted her confidence. Her orchestra teacher said she has improved a great deal.  Thank you for making this happen.”
