Nioma is one of Southern Ontario's and Niagara's finest schools for music and arts. Located on the first floor on Wing # 4 in the St Ann's Roman Catholic Continuing Education and Niagara Center For The Arts Building which to many locals is remembered as the glory days of Niagara! NFCVI High School
The staff of teachers are educated , exciting , and very active in the local Niagara Community. They regularly participate in fund raisers , live performances , seminars and Music Industry related activities such as songwriting , recording and consulting. The founder of Nioma is local Niagara resident Rick Rose , who is a staff songwriter for Sony Music Publishing in Nashville , and has written songs for such artists as Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers , Lennex ( first band with Johnny Dee of Honeymoon Suite) , Perfect Affair (Produced by David Bowie and Bob Dylan's Guitarist Mick Ronson). Written the theme song for the Orion Film 'Rude Awaking' with Meatloaf principal songwriter Jim Steinman and Paul A. Rothchild (who has produced The Doors and Janis Joplin) Rick has also written songs with David Letterman's drummer Anton Fig , and Desmond Child who has written songs for Bonjovi , Aerosmith , Kiss & Ricky Martin.
Rick is very active with other world wide recording projects as much as the local Niagara scene. He resides in Niagara with his wife and 2 kids. Rick believes that having an understanding and confidence in music is a plus for many reasons. Even if it not taken to the level of a Recording Artist , students will develop more confidence with themselves , have fun with music or become a teacher or professor , etc. That is why Nioma encourages students to focus on themselves and their future!
