About Me

I have 15 years of musical experience studying jazz and classical composition with Grammy nominated recording artists as well as a brief stint with the University of Miami Youth Guitar Orchestra. I am currently a working performer that plays around the South Florida Area in various musical projects (Nixa) and cover bands (Franklin's Wheel). In addition to my guitar and bass playing skills, I am an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL.

Currently, I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician within the South Florida area in various bands and other production projects as well as providing lessons to students throughout the South Florida area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Student's can expect a very laid back and relaxed disposition from my self as I try to focus on my student's specific goals and aspirations. The curriculum is dependent on the student's specific needs but we will always initially focus on technique, articulation, and basic music theory (depending on one's level) as to help bridge the gap between learning the technique of playing the instrument and knowing what to do with that technique. Other focal points of my lessons include: Different styles/genres of music (Rock, Jazz, Country), notational/site reading skills, and more. Once a base is set and these particular skills continued to be honed it sets the groundwork and base where they can improve upon their technique and performance skills at their own rate. Taking guitar lessons with me, we will try and cover all of these aspects of playing to ultimately to help you achieve the goal of being the guitar/bass player YOU want to be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in a separate room which has been converted into a music studio including 3 amps, several types of guitars, two basses and a computer work station. If you can not bring your own instrument you may use one of mine, but it is highly recommended that you do own your own for practice purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my own guitar to lessons I travel to, and students are required to have their own instrument as I will not provide one for out of studio lessons. Thank you for understanding.

*** Specialties ***
I listen to a wide range of music and feel anyone that wants to play music should try to as well, as to establish a wide palate of inspiration where they can draw upon it and apply it to their own work in progress. In addition to my guitar and bass playing, I'm an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL. Currently I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician playing guitar and bass within the South Florida area in various bands while keeping busy with other production projects and providing lessons to the south Florida area.

Subjects Taught

Classical Voice, Country Singing, Ear Training, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice, Vocal Training

About Me

My name is Nicole but you can call me Nikki! Here's a little about me and what I've accomplished.

My Background:
I have been singing since the age of four! I am a native of Miami Beach Florida. I started performing in church and school where my passion for performing were developed. Having come from such a background I was privileged with a well rounded musical tastes, from Gospel in church Classical in school, and Reggae, Pop, Rock, and R&B from her parents. In performing in contests and local shows I learned a lot about stage presence and can share that with my students as well. I earned my bachelor's in Studio Music and Jazz Voice at the University of Miami and Minored in Music Business. At UM I had the opportunity to study with critically acclaimed Jazz musicians and artists such as Kevin Mahogany, Kurt Elling and John Secada. Since earning my degree I've worked with the Florida Grand Opera in their production of Aida, also sang background vocals for Gloria Estefan and Michael Buble. I currently perform around South Florida at various hot spots with my self titled band! So those who teach can do too!

My main objective as a performer is to effectively and skillfully entertain a variety of audiences to the best of my ability using the knowledge that I have attained from my experiences as a student and as an entertainer, and in turn work for an established business in the music industry and become a successful artist.

My objective as an educator is to not only teach my students about music but allowing them to grow and flourish as performers and as musicians, with proper technique the skies the limit!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is pretty laid back and fun, it will take work and dedication on the part of my students to work on the new skills and techniques they will be learning under my direction. In the first 2 months we will focus on technique, meaning breathing exercises, vowel placements, warm ups, and execution of a song of the students choice, by the third month these exercises would have improved your vocals ability tremendously we can then work on stylizing for the particular genre your interested in singing in. Each student will have a personally tailored lesson plan to better help them in their goals to be a better singer and performer. I do prefer students in the age ranges 12 and up, only because the voice hasn't fully developed yet to do extensive vocalizing but with younger students we can focus on breathing, warming up properly and theory, which is so important at a young age and will better assist you especially when it comes to developing your ears. If you're wanting to learn to sing in different styles without losing your voice or hurting yourself I'm the teacher for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard in living Room: couches and chairs, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard should be provided by student, I will provide mic and amp

*** Specialties ***
Pop, Rock, R&B, Jazz Styles are my specialties.
