Nusret Ozakinci - Orchestra

Hello My Name Is...

Nusret Ozakinci

I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey, and now reside in Gardner, KS. Music has always been an inseparable part of my life. I have only been encouraged to become a professional educator by my mentors due to my very warm, caring, and hardworking personality. I am a classically trained professional jazz double bassist, and I love performing!

Nevertheless, my true passion is education. Following my graduation from Washburn University with a Bachelor's in Music Education, I have been a substitute teacher for almost every school district around the KC area including Spring Hill for a couple of years. Currently, I'm working on my Master's degree in Music Education from Emporia State University.
I perform Jazz regularly in KC Metropolitan area. I also have performed with classical ensembles including Kansas City Civic Orchestra, Kinnor Philharmonic, Topeka Symphony, and St. Joseph Symphony. My private lesson studio still remains in Olathe accepting all levels of double and electric bass players.

I am a happily married and hard-working family guy who lives with his wonderful family, Payeton the wife, Hendrix the son, Wookie the dog, and Tipsy the cat.

I am very excited to begin another year at Spring Hill and looking forward to teaching and learning with the students through this magical musical experience!
