Cedar Falls December 2015 Musician of the Month: Nick Stow
By West Music Company

Nick Stow is a guitar student of Jeff Burak at West Music Cedar Falls. He has been studying acoustic and electric guitar with Jeff for a little over a year now.

Jeff nominated Nick because Nick has accomplished very advanced techniques and styles over the past year. He is presently playing very complicated compositions and doing a gret job!

Nick is currently attending Hawkeye Community College in pursuit of a degree in liberal arts.

His musical goals include either joining a band or maybe even start a blues band. His advice to other musicians is simply "practice harder!" When asked what he loves about playing music, Nick says "it is the freedom to express my feelings without using words."

Nick is involved in the First United Methodist Church band playing lead guitar, and he also enjoys watching BBC's Top Gear in his spare time.

Some of Nick's favorite music includes late 60s and 70s classic rock--Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, and ELP.
One suprising thing you would not expect to learn about Nick is that he orininally wanted to be a drummer!

Congratulations, Nick! Keep up the good work!
