Welcome! Thank you for visiting my page! I'm Nicole, a professional opera singer and coach born in New York City. I've very recently returned to the area from Seattle, WA, and I am so excited to reach out to new and continuing students in NYC!!
I grew up in Hillsborough, New Jersey, and graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from the Ithaca College School of Music in upstate NY. I completed a professional certificate program, the Artist Diploma in Early Music (Baroque Opera and Chamber Music) at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.
I am an active performer AND a dedicated teacher, and LOVE to share my passions and knowledge with my students! I have years of individual one-on-one voice teaching experience with students of all ...
I teach all levels of piano. ear training, music theory, music performance. I teach old fashioned classical music, as well as playing by chords (usually preferred by adult beginners) but also will incorporate
playing by chords with classical training, because it enhances knowledge of music theory. I've developed my own task analysis for learning chord piano, which means I break it down into steps. I focus on keeping the student's enthusiasm and focus on assessing and providing a positive and successful outcome from the first lesson.
I have been teaching piano for almost 40 years. I have a NY state music teachers license, a masters in music therapy from NYU, and a bachelors in Music Education and AFFA certification.
I try to keep the student self-motivated by using music that the student likes, as well as covering the basics. I use props which can be internalized by the student and gradually removed. For example, using stick-on letter names for the notes for a beginner and then removing them one at a time when the student feels ready.
I am friendly and very easy going; I'm not a disciplinarian. If a student doesn't practice for some reason, we practice together at the next lesson. If a student doesn't want to practice at all, I can be very creative in motivating them. I don't believe in parents ...
Interpretation in any instrument is an important part of good music-making - I coach instrumentalists and singers of all levels on how to make the most of their performance!
Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!
Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.
Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes ...
Hello prospective student! =)
Here are the basics about my lessons:
Singing should always be a rewarding experience for the singer. The freer the voice is, the better the singing feels. But how do we find vocal freedom? Self-knowledge, technique, practice habits, and attitude, for starters...
Some of the areas of singing we'll work on are
- body awareness
We'll use exercises from my background in general music and studies of the "Italian School" of classical singing. We'll also draw from the Feldenkrais Method, yoga, acting and theater techniques, and what I've learned as a certified Music Together teacher.
Other topics we can cover are:
- basics of Italian, German and French language, and lyric diction for these languages and English
- concentration and overcoming nerves
- healthy lifestyle habits for performers
As a voice teacher, I draw on my experience as a professional opera singer and actor, my teaching background in various areas (music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my training in classical singing, musical theater, acting, and various methods of body work. I strive to create an environment of mutual respect that is fun and safe, where students can take risks, learn to challenge themselves productively, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body-awareness, relaxation, and nurturing of individuality are emphasized above all.
My teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, ...
Let's face it. When you are one of 200 singers that an audition panel is seeing, you must stand out. Every audience member (and the panel is your audience) wants to be MOVED in some way. In order to really move someone, you must have something to say as a performer. The only way you will have something to say is if you get to the heart of the character and the song.
If you are preparing to perform a role, learning and memorizing the words and music is not enough. You must do the research and understand completely the journey of the character. You need to know their history and create their future (if they have one). And you need to have all the questions answered before you get into rehearsal because the Director might not have time to work through the answers with you (or they might not know the answers themselves!).
