"Nick's transcriptions of my playing were extremely accurate. He is efficient and easy to communicate with. He listens and notates with the useful perspective of someone who is a great multi-instrumentalist and composer himself. Highly recommended!"
- Adam Tanner, multi- instrumentalist, ETSU faculty, author of Shuffle of the Pick
Nick is now my music teacher. What I have is a professional structured process for developing my skill and technique level. Nick see’s what I’m doing and helps me with technique that I know is going to pay off ‘big time’ in the future. This is something that I now realize I could never achieve just by watching video lessons. The Skype lessons are just great!"
- Mike Clarke, guitarist
"Nick DiSebastian is a transcription genius! I am so impressed with his skill. I had two songs that I really wanted to be able to play on the mandolin that were quite technical. Nick was able to reproduce both tunes for me with unbelievable accuracy in clear copies with both notation and TAB. I know of no other resource for mandolin notation of this quality. Learning these tunes, played the way the pros play them, including the embellishments, is a wonderful educational experience. So thankful for Nick!"
- Laurie Bethke, mandolinist
"About 2 years ago I ordered my first transcription from Nick. I was in eager anticipation to receive the first transcription of one my guitar heroes and how our collaboration would work. Since then I'm a regular customer. Nick’s transcriptions are excellent and match the recordings exactly. The fact that you can ask him any question about the transcriptions and you have the option of video lessons as an additional service makes his service unique and outstanding. Beside that he is an overall nice guy and great to work with (I had the chance to meet him while he was touring through Germany). I couldn't be happier and I highly recommend his service."

"Over the last year I have ordered several transcriptions from Nick and I couldn't be happier with them. Nick is a great guy to work with and his transcriptions match the recordings note for note! I have ordered many bluegrass tabs from Nick. I have spent many months practicing some of the tabs and have learned more from these transcriptions than from all the books I have purchased. I always found it boring to practice scales out of books, but I never get bored practicing these inventive tunes. My crosspicking, timing, and fluidity have greatly improved over the past year by working through these transcriptions and there is a lot to learn from analyzing the styles of my heros. I highly recommend emailing Nick if there is any song you have always wanted to learn but could not find a good tab!"
- Brian Coufal, guitarist
"I am currently taking guitar lessons from Nick, and I've used is transcription services as well. His transcriptions are amazingly accurate, and his prices are more than fair. But in my opinion, Nick's prowess as a teacher, is nothing short of remarkable! Nick has been given "The Gift" of Music, and he has also been "gifted" in sharing his Music with others in a manner that makes his students eager for more instruction. Nick is kind and patient (God knows that he needs patience with me!), but he also emphasizes the need for discipline and practice. If you're looking for an outstanding Master Teacher, then Nick is your guy!"
