Faculty: Nicholas Russell

Nicholas Russell,
Nicholas Russell is a guitarist, composer, music producer and stringed instrument maker, working professionally somewhere within the crossroads of these disciplines. Nick holds an Honours Degree in Music and comprehensively studied classical harmony privately. He has also studied the art of guitar-making with Master Luthier, Sergei De Jonge, having designed and constructed a concert classical guitar under his tutelage. His musical style and knowledge span genres, but his current exploration as a guitarist lies at the intersection of acoustic music, classic and contemporary jazz, and progressive rock. In recent years Nick has expanded his freelancing to include work as a composer (Dusk Dances Dance Festival, Arts Bournemouth University) and as a studio musician (Metalworks Studios, Escarpment Sound, Deschamps Studio). Numerous studio projects he has worked on have aired on national radio (CBC, Jazz FM, CFRU) and international television. A music educator for about ten years, he both taught at and oversaw the lesson program at Folkway Music in Waterloo, Ontario. He owns and operates Haliburton's premier private lesson studio, Haliburton Guitar Studio, which specializes in fretted stringed instruments. Godin Guitars officially endorses Nick.
