About Francisca
I am a very passionate and dedicated instructor. I love working with students at all levels from ages 9 and up, from beginners to experienced adults. It doesn't matter where you are in your musical development, I can help and encourage you to be your very best. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Sydney Australia with (High Class Honors) and Majored in Music Performance and Sub Majors in Composition and Theatre. I have had the opportunity to perform in the USA at various venues and overseas in Australia at the Sydney Opera House to name a few.

My teaching experience dates back to my University days. I was in my first year of my music degree when I applied for my first teaching position at a music school in Australia. I taught there throughout the Four years of my Bachelor's Degree and remained teaching
there after that. I also started teaching at another well respected music school and remained there until the end of 2010. During this time I was very fortunate to have a large database of students who were with me from the beginning of my teaching career up until I left both schools. The only reason I left was as I am also a performer; I was offered an opportunity to perform overseas and i took it. It was a very exciting part of my life as a performer and has helped me grow as an artist and teacher immensely.

In 2012, I relocated to Miami and have been teaching from my private home studio while I continue working on my music career. As a musician and educator, I am very passionate about my teaching and like to bring the best out in my students. Every lesson is tailored specifically to your individual learning needs. I will teach you a vocal technique based on the Seth Riggs Teaching method with my own methods implemented, performance skills, repertoire selection, and audition preparation amongst other skills. It doesn't matter what your desired goal is, I can help you achieve it. The most important part of it all is that you have fun!!

And for piano I like to teach through a series of books depending on your learning levels. We can start at book one, with scales from the book A Dozen a Day, or we can take the the more traditional route of scales, or learn popular songs. This decision can be made by you and I when we meet at our first lesson and discuss what your goals are as a musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson is tailored to your individual learning levels. I normally asses this in the first lesson. Lets start with the Singers.

Most singers are looking for help with contemporary popular music so using specific texts are void here. I will teach you a method of singing technique based on the Seth Riggs singing method, implemented with a technique called "Emotion Centered Singing" which will help you understand music beyond melody and composition but also through text and individual interpretation through story telling customed to your needs. I also teach Musical Theatre Singing, pop, rock, jazz, so if these are routes you would like to take, I can help you on your way there. I will help you choose repertoire for auditions, performances, we will work on performance and audition technique and many more fun things!!!

For the Pianists. This also depends on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to learn pop songs? arrangements? Or do you want to learn classical pieces? I ask you all these questions and more at our first lesson to make sure you and I are both happy with the direction we will take. I use either Scale Books or The Dozen a Day Series or the ABRSM Piano series, Alfred's Adult Piano book and many more. Once again the important factor here is Fun based learning!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a full size digital weighted piano for all Lessons, it has various different sounds and a great grand piano sound for piano students. Printer for any homework given, and stationery

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some books for learning and make copies accordingly. The student should have a working piano/keyboard in the home. If i request they purchase a book for their learning development, they are required to purchase it.

*** Specialties ***
For Singing- I teach a method called Speech Level Singing. Similar to the Seth Riggs Speech level singing as well as a technique called Emotion centered singing which deals with connecting with the song and feeling the connection through the core. This is useful for performance and interpretation. I specialize in teaching, Pop, RnB, Musical Theatre, Rock and Folk

For Piano, I use a variety a books. I particularly like the Alfred's series as well as the Bastien Series. I also like to encourage other learning materials for holidays which is lots of fun!! This depends on the students learning level. I asses learning levels in the first lesson and plan lessons accordingly after that in order to have the student progress each week. I teach classical piano and contemporary, pop

In my opinion, Allen is a great piano teacher for beginners and intermediate students. Having played in churches for more than 40 years, I yearn for a more challenging piano pedagogy, i.e. Hanon # 31- 60 and Jazz theory. Nonetheless, I strongly recommend Allen IF you have children or adults who are just learning the instrument. They will benefit from his congenial personality and laid back approach.

Allen was both knowledgeable and thorough, which I would expect from a teacher with a college degree in Music. Instead of taking up golf or tennis, I look forward to studying both piano and music theory with him. In fact, I requested that he would at least consider giving 45 minute lessons...smile.

I have a 9-year-old who loves the piano. I've tried a couple other teachers but no one compares to Allen when it comes to teaching my child. Allen was prompt on arrival, patient, and very professional. He understood my concerns and seemed genuinely interested in helping my child to reach the next goal. He was very knowledgeable with his piano skills and appeared to be dedicated to the profession. I'm just thrilled and I would highly recommend him!

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.

Ms Lorna is a great instructor and very professional. I intend to continue to develop my singing ability with her. There were times I thought I just couldn't do it, but she is so encouraging and also assured me I can do it. My confidence level has increased tremendously so has my ability to sing from my diaphragm, not my throat. I truly recommend this instructor.

About Marisa
I have been singing and playing the piano since I was a young child. I have participated in Broadway trainings in New York, have done classical voice and opera training, and for the last four years in college have studied jazz voice. I am an arranger and teacher of music theory. I have experience working with children in music and theater programs. I also have worked as a cantor at a church where the congregation is primarily comprised of senior citizens.

Prior to my graduation, I was in the top two vocal ensembles at California State University, Long Beach. For the past two summers I had the honor of performing internationally with the CSULB Chamber Choir. We were invited to sing at the 2016 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. This experience culminated in my choir winning the esteemed title of Choir of the World. In the summ
er of 2017, we returned to Europe and won the prestigious choral competition in Spittal, Austria. As a jazz voice student I was a member of Pacific Standard Time, a vocal jazz ensemble, that has won student music awards from Down Beat Magazine for the past seven years in a row. In January 2016, I had the opportunity to sing with Kurt Elling at the Jazz Education Network Conference.

I feel that my calling is to use my musical gifts to help others. I am patient and want to encourage my students to do their very best, setting and meeting their own personal goals.
