Nico Catenazzo is a pianist who is well versed in playing his instrument with other musicians and has a background in many styles of music. He started taking piano lessons at the age of seven which emphasized the classical style. During his learning process over the years he also had a liking
for Rock, but being that there were no learning opportunities for that he decided to take the task upon himself
while going to his lessons. While attending community college he took part in the school Jazz band and also formed a Rock group to play
in venues whenever given the chance to perform. During this time he also attended his private classical lessons at school.
Once he began attending University his mind was set on pursuing a career in Music Education but after a semester he realized
that he wanted to learn more about his instrument and decided to change his major to Jazz Performance.
During his time at the University he took part in many projects including wedding bands, a pop quintet, a Jazz trio, and still managed to maintain
his Rock group for over six years. After graduating he moved to Arizona to pursue new opportunities and is currently working on
his Master's in Education at the University of Arizona.
