About Nicole

I have been studying violin for 17 years and have performed all kinds of music from classical to rock. As of Spring 2016 I completed two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Music and Psychology and two Graduate Certificate in the Suzuki Technique and the Alexander Technique. During my education I was fortunate enough to study violin with Jerilyn Jorgensen and Brad Watson. As well as, perform in the Lamont Symphony Orchestra. I was also able to study violin, music performance, and composition with Carlo Feige, Roberto Andreoni, and Simone Fontenelli in Milan, Italy for 4 months during my junior year. D
uring my undergraduate degree i chose to accompany my music with a psychology degree, focusing on cognition as well as social and child psychology.

Given the extensive nature of my musical training and my great passion for music, specifically the violin, I can offer a student an engaging and instructive experience, that will allow them to reach any goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take an all inclusive approach to teaching violin, that encourages students to proactively participate in the learning process. My lessons are geared around encouraging a student's creativity and musicality while at the same time providing them with the tools to work through each piece and each technical aspect of playing the violin.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons take place in the living room. There is seating for parents and plenty of parking.

Thank you Nicole, My daughter is a first time user with only a few minor instructions from a public school teacher, whom taught her wrong. Your advice and ability to work with her, even in her frustrated moments was wonderful. I am looking forward to next week

***Lessons begin the week of August 29th, 2016***

I teach piano lessons, from beginners to intermediate students. I typically book 30 minute time slots, although longer ones are available if requested. I have about 20 years of piano experience and I have either performed recitals or played accompaniment quite often throughout that time. I have taught lessons off and on throughout my time as a school teacher.

I love teaching, and I love music! If you want to improve your educational performance, you've come to the right place!

Bethany had her 7 month baby next to her and the baby got fussy and it was distracting. She said that her husband was usually home by that time but he wasn't there today. I won't be happy if this happens again. I would even be willing to come later to avoid this perhaps 5:00:-6:00 pm ?
The lesson was only 40 minutes instead of the hour but hopefully because it was the first lesson.

Bethany started teaching our seven year old daughter piano lessons in our home several months ago. She is an excellent piano teacher! Bethany always comes to our house on time and she is very organized and well prepared when it comes to the lesson plan/homework materials. Most important, our daughter has learned a lot over the last several months and she really enjoys her 30 minute lesson(s) with Bethany. I would highly recommend Bethany for a teacher!

Gregory is a wonderful instructor, kind yet direct in his instruction, so very knowledgable about singing it's truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Whether one is a serious student with a career future in mind, or someone who wants to sing better, Gregory will treat that student with equal respect. It's easy to see he loves singing and helping others achieve their personal goals. Highly recommended!
