Nick taught me at a level when I studied at New College Nottingham. He's a vibrant and exceptional teacher, with incredible knowledge in his field of music. I learned a lot from Nick and have gone on to achieve a university degree in Musical theatre.
If it wasn't for Nick I wouldn't have passed my HND in Music Performance, he is an excellent tutor and through his guidance, council and support I gained a greater understanding of the Aural element of my course. I struggled beyond my first instrument of drums when it came to composition but Nick was always patient and kind, explained everything to me in great detail in a manner I could understand which boosted my confidence and led me to pass my modules. I Couldn't recommend him more.
In my opinion. Nick Redfern is one of the most well-mannered, patient and passionate teachers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. In the two years i spent at NCN Clarendon, He was the only teacher that showed that he genuinely cared about his students, and not just the work that they produce. He is not only a great teacher, but a fantastic person with superior kindness and intellect.
