MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Nicholas Veinoglou

Nicholas Veinoglou is a swiss army knife guitarist – from rock and R&B to classical and jazz, he’s a jaw-dropping player who's as comfortable playing “in the pocket” as he is shredding solos. It’s no wonder he’s the go-to sideman for massive pop artists.

Based in Los Angeles, where he maintains a full schedule as a touring guitarist, songwriter, and music director, Nicholas regularly plays with top-tier artists like Jordan Fisher and Atlantic Records recording artist Bazzi.
