Brancato is a champion of creative and conceptual performance. She participated in the Guggenheim’s marathon performance of Satie’s Vexations along with Christian Wolff, Philip Corner, David Del Tredici, and Joshua Rifkin, all four of whom performed in John Cage’s 1963 legendary premiere of the work. This unique 19-hour concert was featured in The New York Times and Art News. On the international network Rai Italia, Brancato gave an intimate televised concert and interview for the series “L’altra I
With her passion for programming both traditional and avant-garde music in thought-provoking ways, Brancato receives great acclaim from audiences: “I am still reeling from Nicole’s recital,” said a Metropolitan Opera Guild board member, “The way she played … will stay with me forever.” In addition to her solo career, she is a key member of two unconventional chamber ensembles: Audible Abstraction - a bold new music trio - and 2Squared - a dynamic piano duo. In all of her endeavors, Brancato creates a connective, intellectual, and provocative experience for her audiences.
Brancato won multiple competitions during her career, most recently winning the Hunter Symphony’s Aria and Concerto competition with Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G. She holds an M.A. in piano performance from Hunter College in New York City and a B.M. in piano performance from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. She graduated summa cum laude from both institutions and was awarded the Benno Lee Prize at Hunter for an outstanding Master’s Recital. She is a member of the American College of Musicians’ Piano Guild and has studied with the likes of Geoffrey Burleson and William Wolfram. She has over 10 years of teaching experience, specializing in piano, composing and arranging, and music theory.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their technique and music making abilities. Every student requires different needs, and it is my job to develop a custom tailored approach to ensure the needs are met; My teaching methods are derived from my own experience as a performer, and from my t
I teach music students of all different ages and experience levels. My goal for new or beginning students is to apply solid foundational techniques and foster a disciplined daily practice routine to ensure their progress on the horn accelerates. In order to become a great horn player for many years and maintain a beautiful sound, it is essential to have a strong solid foundation and daily routine. Together, we will find a suitable warm up method, as well as daily exercises and etudes in order to develop a strong embouchure, unlock their own individual sound, and play as relaxed as possible.
A huge part of my teaching is dedicated to helping my students sound develop and to "sing" on the horn. This singing approach enables students perform with freedom, confidence, and the utmost expression, while also enhancing their own unique and beautiful special sounds. For the intermediate level or already experienced students, I work with them on more advanced etudes and technical exercises, building and refinement of the solo repertoire, as well as school/orchestra audition preparation, and any other specific needs or goals the student is interested in or requests.
While my personal passion and musical endeavor is the French Horn, I am open to assisting other musicians and instrumentalists interested in developing their musical skills.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
