Wisconsin cultured in 1983, I was born to a family of teachers and artists. In 1989, I started the Suzuki piano method, which I continued until 2001. As well, I sang high tenor in a barbershop choir, played organ and piano at my Catholic church and was interested in stage acting and musical theatre. But In 1996, my obsession with woodwinds was sparked by discovering my dad's alto saxophone. In 2001, I graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy in jazz saxophone and piano performance. I then went on to graduate Western Michigan University(BM,‘05) and the New England Conservatory(MM,‘08) for degrees in Jazz Studies.
I currently live in Astoria, NY (Queens), and have a conveniently located studio space available for lessons. I've been active as a performing and recording musician in NYC since 2008, and am enjoying learning more and more about music production. Instrumentally, I enjoy performing and recording on a plethora of instruments: saxophones, clarinets, flutes, piano and keyboards, and vocals. I am a member of several active bands in the jazz and indi-rock scenes: Dapp Theory, Zodiac Ensemble, and my own band, Education Reform.
I've performed at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in NYC, the Toronto Jazz Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Oslo Jazz Festival, Chelsea Music Festival ('12), and the Beantown, San Francisco and Halifax Jazz Festivals. I've performed at the Chopin Festival in Luxembourg and and the Festival de la Medina in Tunisia. In my spare time, I like to learn new recipes and practice yoga.

Hi my name is Nicole; I have over twenty years of teaching experience. (I began teaching beginner students while I was in high school) and I myself began classical piano training at the age of 8 and continued through college. I also studied music theory, ear training and sight reading.
As a student, I participated in yearly NYSSMA competitions, performed in recitals and National Music Guild competitions as well. I always knew what I wanted to major in when I went to college. I followed my passion and decided to follow my first love which was music. I wound up being the recipient of the first Ralph V. Ritchie Music Memorial Scholarship at Nassau Community College (which needless to say was a huge honor). I studied under Rose Tanner, performing many piano solo recitals as well as singing madrigals in a quartet. I really loved what I was doing. I went on as a performance major at West Chester University in P.A. for three semesters and it was there that I realized that I really wanted to teach piano. I've always been extremely creative and patient, so I thought teaching piano would be a perfect fit for me and it turned out that I was right! I also have had many other jobs working with children, such as being a camp counselor and a nanny for several different families. I also really wanted to write and perform my own music in my own band as well. So I left West Chester and began several of my own original musical projects and solo performance acts. I've played the piano/keyboard, wrote music/lyrics, sang lead and backup vocals or did a combination of the above.
During this time I worked closely with other advanced teachers and musicians to gain other methods, styles and techniques of music.
I'm patient, creative, positive and fun to work with and I really enjoy teaching. I love working with kids and I'm passionate about passing my love of music along to my students. I also love to explore improvisation with students and song writing if the student and parents(s) are interested. I myself am constantly growing and learning, but as I look at it- we all are (and should be). If you feel your child and I would be a good fit, please feel free to call me. I'm always open for questions and conversation. :~)

Welcome to my profile! Thanks so much for taking a moment to look at it. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in Salem, Oregon with a very musical family. I began playing piano at age 6, viola at age 10, voice lessons came at age 14, and finally, I began taking organ lessons when I was 16. In high school, I accompanied the jazz choir, played in the orchestra and the symphony, and accompanied a children's choir, as well as taught lessons. It was a busy four years! I went to St. Olaf College as an organ performance major, but I couldn't resist the singing bug, and quickly switched to vocal performance. While I was there I took pedagogy classes, which taught me how to be a great teacher! I still look at my notebooks from those classes. I also sang in several operas, traveled to Italy to sing, and met some of the most influential people in my life. I moved to NYC in 2009 to pursue a Master's Degree at Manhattan School of Music. I got to work with some awesome musicians and do a lot of singing! One of the most fun things I did was perform in the Educational Outreach Opera as Fifi the Poodle. I also got to work with American Opera Projects to workshop a new opera. Through these two years and afterwards, I taught at a couple of different small music schools in the area. Currently, I am the singer at two churches in Harlem and I work with local opera companies. Though my life is very music-focused, I enjoy other things as well! Being from Oregon, I really love the outdoors, especially crabbing and hiking. I enjoy reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends and family, and I really love my little dachshund, Olive! I also have a nephew and a niece that I love to play with when I visit Oregon!

I'm a highly versatile, enthusiastic and encouraging teacher with over 15 years of professional experience. My educational background is from the Levine School of Music in Washington, DC and the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
I was a professionally trained concert pianist as a child and grew up playing music my whole life, so I know first hand how much time, effort, and dedication goes into perfecting your craft. This also means I know how to make working hard a fun and rewarding experience (so it doesn't seem like hard work at all!) -- which is the most important thing that students feel so they can clearly see and experience their achievements.
I have taught students of all ages, genres of music, and levels privately, in schools, conservatories, and in group settings.
Having had writing contracts with major record companies, I am also well versed in songwriting/performance coaching and lessons for professional musicians.
Music should be a fun and interactive experience that yields rewards every time you have a lesson -- I strive to make this a consistent reality for my students!
