My degree and experience in the studio has equipped me with a chameleon like vocal ability to mimic an array of vocal styles and genres and I can train you to do the same!

About Nicole
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. S
ince 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.

Nicole Kidd is the Best Vocal Coach for anyone at any level pursuing a singer career.
It is a true privilege taking lessons with Nikki. She is an amazing vocalist who has a unique voice. Also, she is a very sweet and positive person that has been capable to bring the best out of my kids Giulianna and Nickolas who love taking classes with her.
Over the past three years she has increased their vocal quality as well as their confidence on stage.

I highly recommend Nicole Kidd as a vocal coach.

Operatic Singing includes Classical Voice Training, Acting, and Language Coaching.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care and consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles, that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner. It is essential that your teacher understand how to care for these delicate components of the human voice.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. There are two main components that help magnify the sound. The pharynx, also known as the throat, and the soft ...

I had my first lesson with rachelle and being really nervous in the begining she totally hit a home run. 1 lesson and never had any music training in my life she explained everything and as the lesson went on I gained more and more confidence she is so knowlegable and really knows how to convey it in simple terms that I could understand. I am so confident in her ability that I will reach my goal. Its real exsiting. Oh yea by the way I just turned 65. Great person and excellent teacher.

Cara was professional and kind. She is clearly at the top of her game. My girls learned so mucn from her during their in home lessons. They are still singing together and using some of the techniques from her. We appreciated her expertise and heart to teach!

A few months ago after researching a number of vocal instructors in the area and speaking with a few friends, I decided to give Cara a try based on her teaching approach, and resume. Since I had virtually no vocal experience (other than some off-key excursions in the car) I was surprised that I could actually sing the correct notes during my first lesson with her.
Cara's positive, but meticulous approach has helped me improve my vocal ability farther than I ever imagined over the last 6 months. She is fun to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

Amber is a magnificent teacher. She has tons of experience, and can identify problems and resolve concerns instantaneously. She is not forceful and will gladly work in accordance with the preferred pace of the student. Overall she is incredibly knowledgable and if you work with her and adhere to her notes and suggestions you will notice immediate qualitative improvement.

If you have always wanted to sing but don't know how to start or if you want to get better, I will be there to help and challenge you following your goals and music affinities. I teach voice for the last three years and I am an active performing singer. I have my Masters of Music in Voice Performance and have sung and performed in USA and Europe. I will tailor the lesson to your objectives and preferences, and I can also help you with audition preparation.

About Elodie
I am a singer mostly trained in opera but I am able to teach all types of music. My major concern is to give you the tools to sing healthy without tensions nor harm to your voice. I help to expand your range and volume (or projection of the voice).

A typical lesson consist on warm-up exercises for which you learn many tips and ideas on how to use your voice. It develops technique and broadens your self-consciousness of your voice ability. If needed, I do some ear-training exercises. And for more than the half of the lesson, we sing through repertoire we have chosen together. I ask my students what they want to sing, I suggest a piece and we decide together. Once a month, I ask a pianist to come and accompany my students.

And at the end of the year, I organise a studio recital where the students get acquainted to sing in front of a
small audience.

When I started singing in HS I was a shy kid with a loud voice and a lot of technical issues. It was my good fortune to work with a great choir director whose support paved the way to both a BA and a MM in music as well as a career that has allowed me to sing on the stages of San Francisco Opera, Opera San Jose and Opera San Luis Obispo among dozens of others. Learning to sing did more than provide a way to make a living, it created in my a confidence and set of problem solving skills that changed my life forever. I would love to share some of that good fortune, and those skills, with you!

About Jason
Hello, and thank you for having a look at my teaching profile. In addition to my active schedule as a mainstage performer (that bio is pasted a the bottom of this page) I also do a great deal of work in the schools as a Teaching Artist with both San Francisco Opera and Lamplighter's Opera Theatre. Teaching has always been a joy for me, both the academic study in my undergraduate and graduate studies and the practical lessons learned in two decades of singing professionally. Whither you are looking to feel more confident in a chorus, nail your next audition or just to enjoy the visceral thrill of making music with your voice I believe I have the tools to help you succeed. There tends to be a great deal of fun and laughter along the way as well...I am serious about the work (and will expect you to be as well) but science has shown time and
again that play is the most efficient way to learn. In addition to the mechanics of singing we can develop character, do in depth text study and practice success audition techniques.

Because I am still an active performer my schedule is some what flexible, if you are interested in a lesson slot not currently marked as available, please let me know...I am certain something can be worked out.

About Natalie N.

Experienced performer of more than 10 years and extensive experience with voice therapy as a speech language pathologist. I have a unique understanding of the artistry and physiology of the voice. All ages and levels welcome. Lessons with me will not only cover singing with good support and artistry but also cover the fundamentals of music.

About Natalie
I am a professional singer and speech language pathologist. I have spent many years studying the physiology and anatomy of the voice. I have a Bachelor of Music from Wichita State University and a Master of Science from Rockhurst University.

I have been performing for more than 10 years in various genres, including opera, musical theater, jazz, gospel and popular styles. I have extensive experience with music theory and character analysis. I studied classical vocal performance for 15+ years and am still learning more, as the voice is ever changing. Students that study with me will not only receive instruction for healthy singing and performance but also personalized technique. I strongly believe that every voice is unique and that 'one size fits all' vocal training is not effective.

I have taught private voice and piano lesson
s, as well as theater classes for many years. I have experience teaching ages 3-75, in all levels. I also have extensive experience working with students with special needs, modifying curriculum and utilizing various teaching styles to accommodate specific needs.
