I am currently a second year masters student at The University of Delaware in violin performance and am teaching in between Newark Delaware and North East Maryland- where my studio is located. Currently I am very flexible with schedules and have a teaching location in North East, MD, or I can drive to your location if you are closer to Newark.

I received my bachelor degree from Colorado State University with a concentration in violin performance and violin/viola pedagogy (the art of private teaching). What is unique to my training is my pedagogy degree, where professors analyzed my teaching to help me perfect it.

I am accepting students who are looking for a permanent teacher OR who are looking to advance during the summer for the next school year. I teach from age 7 to adult. I mainly teach classical violin, but if you express an interest in fiddling music we can certainly look at fiddle material though my main concentration is in classical music.

Looking forward to meeting you!

My granddaughter really enjoys taking lessons from Nicole. Nicole will walk Lauren through pieces with great patience to make sure she gets it right. Nicole is very good at explaining technique and rhythm. Nicole is also a very good motivator and encourages Lauren to do her best.

My first lesson was very nice experience. Nicole seemed just as excited to teach as I was to learn. The lesson was paced well and was enjoyable. I am looking forward to the next one.
