Nick Gasser

Former guitar student Nick Gasser's original production "In The Clouds".

Nick Gasser is a freelance guitarist who composes a unique blend of progressive rock, metal, and blues with pop-sensibilities, with soaring melodies, crushing riffs, catchy grooves, colorful harmonies, and blazing solos to tell memorable musical stories.


Nick has studied with Tom over the past several years before taking off on his own.


I am so proud of Nick's progress! He has always been a shredder and we spent most of our time together on technique, theory and songwriting.
