I'm Nico Padden, a voice, piano, and guitar instructor located in Floral Park, New York.  I teach private music lessons to students of all ages and can help you become the performer you'd like to be! I coach for NYSSMA, college auditions, musical theatre auditions, and offer recording services as part of your lessons.  

I also perform in Nico's Little Music Makers, a fun, interactive musical extravaganza that can be tailored for preschool classes, summer camp shows, and birthday parties for your little rockers. I also make music for grownups, too--if you're looking for that visit www.nicopadden.com. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, I welcome your questions!
