Nicolas Smith is a lifelong musician who has been involved with music for many years. He began playing piano by ear at age three, but it was in intermediate school where he would learn to be musically literate through the trumpet. Nicolas soon became wholeheartedly invested in the field of music, composing his first piece in middle school with guidance from his band director. During his junior and senior years of high school he was permitted (and encouraged) to arrange stand tunes for the school marching band. He also became the pianist for his high school’s Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Chamber Choir, and Theatre. 

Nicolas is currently a Music Education major in his senior year at the University of North Texas in Denton (expected graduation spring 2020). He serves as the pianist for the UNT Wind Ensemble, under the Baton of Dr. Nicholas E. Williams. He has studied piano under Dr. Eldred Marshall IV, Lizhen Wu, and Nadia Soree, trumpet under Dr. Jacklyn Lankford and Dr. Spencer Wallin, and World Percussion with Mark Ford.  Nicolas has played with the University of North Texas Mean Green marching band, the UNT concert band, the 8:00 and 2:00 steel drum bands, and the Sinfonia Jazz Orchestra. He is an active member of UNT’s Gamma Theta chapter of Phi Mu Alpha music fraternity. Nicolas has a stellar academic history and has secured a place on the Dean’s or President’s list all but one semester. 

Nicolas has a great passion for teaching.  His past experience includes two years as a Youth Summer Program Instructor/Counselor with the Oakgardens Church’s Summer Youth Program. Nicolas himself wrote and implemented the music curriculum, which was specifically geared toward introducing inner city youth to an eclectic exposure to music and music theory. He also participates in "Start Up The Band,” a partnership between UNT's Music Education Department and Denton ISD. The program pairs middle school students with advanced music majors for tutoring. Nicolas also volunteers his time with the music students at Calhoun Middle School in Denton, TX.
