We will work on mic handling, cable wrapping, stage presence, how to work a crowd, and how to perform in different arenas. 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 K.

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. Since 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!

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.

I'm a hip hop artist and song writer who's looking to strengthen certain areas of my voice for cross genre purposes. Nicole immediately identified my weak areas and began to work on them. Beyond professional and extremely knowledgable. Very patient and passionate about the craft. I have no doubts that she will help me to achieve my goals as a vocalist. I immediately got homework emailed to me which I really appreciated! Awesome instructor.

Nicole is a great singer and musician! She has an amazing voice and really knows how to sing which truly stands out from the crowd. She is the best vocal coach that anyone can have. My daughter and son love her and completely enjoy every single class. Since they have been taking lessons with Nicole, both of them have increased their vocal range, developed confidence in performance, as well as learning a lot about theory. She has a vast knowledge about music and can really get the best out of the student. I definitely highly recommend her to anyone, from beginner to advanced, pursuing a career in the music field.
