Nicholas Osborn creates music to bring people closer together in a persistently divisive world. Nicholas’s music combines elements of classical, jazz, and video game genres, among others, to create unique sound worlds. While he primarily focuses on art music composition, Nicholas has also scored a short student film, made in collaboration with filmmakers and dancers, and is always looking for opportunities to collaborate with artists of different disciplines.
Nicholas’ works have been performed for various student recitals throughout Michigan and Ohio, at an events center in West Virginia, and during the 2018 Squirrel Island Chapel Summer Concert Series in Maine.
Nicholas is a member of the Millennium Composer’s Initiative, the Society of Composers, Inc., and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
Nicholas has studied with Mikel Kuehn and Marilyn Shrude (Bowling Green State University) and David Gillingham and Jay Batzner (Central Michigan University). He has also participated in Masterclasses and or had single lessons with David Maslanka (three-time National Endowment for the Arts recipient) and Elaine Lillios (Bowling Green State University).
