Nick PastranoGuitar Teacher, Bass Guitar Teacher
Nick is not only a new dad but is the lead guitarist for the band Solomon, touring both nationally and internationally while maintaining a full roster of students at School of Rock. One lesson with him reveals a vibrant musician with a whole lot of talent. His love for music soared when he started middle school and had the opportunity to play guitar. He had watched his father play guitar as a child and knew there was no turning back once he had one in his hands. Nick continued to play guitar throughout his high school years, joining bands and honing his skills. When the opportunity to form Solomon arose, he allowed music to become more than just a hobby. With Solomon, Nick recorded a full-length album entitled "Conqueror" out of Illinois. He counts landing international shows and creating a following for Solomon as one of his biggest musical achievements and something he only dreamed would happen when he was a beginning guitarist.
Nick loves working at School of Rock because he is allowed to teach kids more than how to play an instrument. He is teaching them to be successful inside and outside of the school.
