About Me

I have been playing music for 19 years, beginning on piano at age 4. Since then, I have learned the saxophone, guitar, drums, and bass, as well as cultivated a deep understanding of music theory. In the past few years, bass/bass guitar has become my primary instrument. Learning and playing music has enriched my life greatly, and I believe that can be true for you as well.

I have been performing since a young age, and have participated in multiple performing groups over the years. Currently, I am the bassist for The Hot Club of Zion (jazz) and bassist/songwriter for the Merchant Royal (rock).

I am currently attending the University of Utah and I am in the process of completing a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Performance (Bass). This program has greatly expanded my knowledge of music theory, history, and composition. It has also provided me with the opportunity to work with some of the best musicians in Utah,

I am grateful for all of the joy and satisfaction that music has given me and enjoy helping others experience the same.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher, I place emphasis on helping a student determine what their personal goals are, and then tailor lesson plans to those interests. My personal experience has taught me that the best learning environment is one in which the student feels relaxed and involved. As such, I strive to maintain a comfortable, yet professional setting, and consistently communicate with the student about what they want to learn.

Because each student's goals and interests are different, I do not use a specific curriculum. However, I intend to teach all of my students introductory music theory, fundamentals of sound science, and basic songwriting techniques. After several lessons, students will have a better understanding of music-making itself, as well as a clearer idea of what their musical goals are, and how to achieve them.

I look forward to working with you and helping you realize your musical potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a bass guitar or guitar and amplifier. I will also bring lesson materials (i.e. books, sheet music, notation paper, writing utensils) as well as a metronome and recording/playback device.

For upright bass or piano lessons, student would need to have instrument of their own at their home.

*** Specialties ***
I have the most experience with the genres of rock, blues, and jazz, specifically on bass/bass guitar. I have extensive experience with gypsy/straight-ahead swing jazz, classic rock/rock and roll, and modern blues playing. I also have experience playing and, to a lesser extent, teaching country, pop, and gospel.

I am well versed in music theory, both classical and jazz, including scale and harmony theory, song forms, and performance practice.

I have played guitar as a secondary instrument for about 6 years. Though it is not my main instrument, I am very familiar with the fretboard (know every note, etc.), chords, scales, and performance practice. I would be able to teach acoustic and electric guitar. I am familiar with the genres of rock, blues, jazz, and pop.

I have played piano since a young age, and use it primarily as a composition instrument. I have played classical and romantic era music, as well as jazz standards.

My upright bass playing experience has almost exclusively been jazz-oriented. However, I have played blues, country, bluegrass and pop music on upright bass as well. I am confident in teaching those styles on the instrument.

Nicole E. Salt Lake City, UT

Subjects Taught

Flute, Music Theory

About Me

I am a graduate student at Brigham Young University School of Music and also hold a Bachelor's degree in Flute Performance. I have 11 years teaching experience with students of all ages, and 16 years of playing experience. My students regularly hold top positions in their school bands and orchestras.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe music lessons should be both exciting and educational. I have high expectations for my students, and we work together in lessons to help you become an excellent musician.

Lessons are structured around learning technical studies like scales and arpeggios, etudes or exercise books, and solos. I also believe in helping students develop sight reading skills, so lessons regularly end with a duet that the student sight reads as I play along.

In the end my goal is to train you to be a musician who no longer needs a teacher. I would love for my students to go on in the professional music industry, but recognize that many will just want to play in the community orchestra, or a college band, or in a church group. My goal is to give you the skills to be able to have a self perpetuating music experience when you are finished taken lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard Piano, Music Stand, Chair, and my large collection of flute music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my instrument but expect you to provide the music stand and anything else you might need.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical flute. I am comfortable teaching any music found in the classical flute repertoire along with technique, tone studies, and pertinent etudes.
