At the start of 2019 he began his journey as a Early Childhood Music Teacher in the Early Learning School at Reddam House, Bondi. It was here that Nick discovered his love for sharing and teaching music to toddlers and preschoolers.

Through this First Notes Music was born, and Nick now shares his love with music to over 150 toddlers and preschoolers in Sydney, Australia each week. Nick's goal and philosophy is to help children build a positive relationship with music, and he is achieving that goal by having students wanting to learn a musical instrument or be involved in their school musical because of 'music with Teacher Nick'.

Each lesson is planned by Nick; both guided by the Early Learning Framework and his own experience, they're progressive and encompass fun and engaging ways to teach children music. He has a natural and authentic connection with the kids that enables him to encourage imagination and play while still learning. Lessons are interactive and will have you and your little one up and dancing or marching to the beat of their drum.

Nick Summerfield

Nick is a singer-songwriter and self taught pianist who grew up in Wollongong, south of Sydney. He moved to Sydney in 2013 after traveling to Los Angeles as a musician on a Talent Development Project to pursue a career as a writer & artist.

In that time Nick's music has been featured in film; placed in hit Australian TV show "Winners and Losers"; topped UK Dance & Club charts and been selected as a finalist for an Independent Music Award.

Nick began playing piano at 15, started singing and writing from 16. He studied music theory and had vocal training at the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music prior to moving to Sydney. He has trained vocally with Diana Rouvas and began study at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music before Covid 19.

Nick has taught piano to adults and children, but young toddlers was a welcomed and exciting change. Many kids have a natural liking to music and dance, and Nick has a passion to help them build their own love and relationship with music.
