After earning his B.A. from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA with a focus on Music Composition, Nathan stayed to work as Staff Accompanist with Whitman College's Music Department. For the following eight years, he played for private voice and instrumental lessons, student recitals, as well as Opera Workshop productions and fully-staged productions presented by Whitman College's Harper Joy Theatre. In addition, during the last three of those eight years, Nathan began teaching voice as an Adjunct Voice Teacher which opened his eyes to the joys of teaching singing.
While living in Walla Walla, Nathan had the opportunity of varying musical experiences such as accompanying dance classes for Summer Dance Lab, serving as rehearsal and performance pianist as well as music director for several staged musical productions at Little Theater of Walla Walla, and staff accompanist for MidSummer Musical Retreat.
Finally, in 2013, Nathan made the decision to pursue a Master's in Music. His two-year tenure at Washington State University provided concentrated experience learning about and researching the elements of singing. Nathan's graduate studies culminated in a written project on teaching singing to children and adolescents. In addition, he served as Teacher's Assistant for the Opera Workshop program both years where he continued learning about the details of producing semi-staged opera scenes and fully-staged operettas and musicals.
Moving back to the Greater Seattle Area and based in Bellevue, Nathan is excited to teach voice, play piano, and collaborate with the music community.
