Thanks so much, Kat! Cole responds so well to your gentle guidance, and he's motivated via your choice of slowly more challenging pieces. No complaints at all!

Nicole P. Malden, MA

I teach violists from beginner to college level performers.

About Nicole

I have a passion for music and people. Those two things together make lessons a fantastic outlet for both me and the student. I cater to each student's specific needs based on personality, age, ability, and mood. I have been teaching for over 10 years, and have completed both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Violin Performance from St. Olaf College and The Boston Conservatory. I am an active performer in the Boston area, and am always looking for new and interesting projects. I am a strong promoter of music being written by living composers, which is where a lot of my performing happens. A typical lesson starts with some fundamental work, whether it's open strings, scales or whatever. There is always a way to warm up - playing violin is an athletic skill, in my opinion. After that,

A wonderful and passionate teacher and mentor

Nicole is far more than a teacher, she is a role-model, a caring person, and a very well-trained musician. I've tried finding other places or teachers that I felt were at least adequate, but had no luck. After 4 years of private lessons, I have, without a doubt, improved far so much. She knows how to push a student to their full potential, even if they don't see it themselves.

If you're looking for someone who will be supportive and understanding but also productive, Nicole is your person. Her optimistic method of teaching really does impact and motivate you to practice, which is something that is sometimes hard for me to find.
