Nick Sbu Engel - The Perfoming Artist/Musian

Nick "Sbu" Engel is a versatile multi-instrumentalist who exercises his creative gift both in performing and in teaching others to unlock their latent creativity. As a pianist and Sax player he is both a sought-after solo performer and provider of unforgettable background music with the Wedding Ambiance brand. As a teacher at CreateMusic Academy, Nick thrives on developing the hidden talent of students of all ages and abilities and exploring their God-given creativity in music. 

Nick comes from a musical family in Durban and started piano lessons at the age of 7, followed by guitar from age 10. In his growing passion for music he picked up glockenspiel, recorder, bass guitar and drums along the way too, joining the church youth band at the age of 14. Continuing with classical piano in high school, he went on to study music at Natal University and completed his Music Honours degree in Jazz Performance (piano) in 1995. Having begun teaching music straight out of school, during his year at bible college, he officially opened Nick's Music School in 1997 and laid the foundation for what was to become CreateMusic Academy around 2005. Nick is a founder member of the band 4th Dimension (Ngwenye Yesine), with whom he plays Afro jazz, fusion, swing, R&B, pop-rock, soul and latin-american. Since his student years he has played in a wide variety of settings on piano and sax from hotels and restaurants to shebeens and bars, and from weddings and special events to regular Sunday services at church. Where he goes, his guitar invariably goes too. 
Today Nick divides his time between his musical career, church related work and ministering to the residents of Chesterville , often through music. His album Piano to Soothe the Soul brings both impulses together in a collection that transports the listener as much as it serves a very practical purpose for upliftment of the community.
