I have been teaching beginning and intermediate piano students for over 20 years, and especially love teaching beginners. I have experience accompanying all my vocal students over the last 20 years as well as choirs I have directed in the past.
I love beginners of ALL ages and have a background in Special Education, so I welcome students of ALL abilities!

About Nicole M.

I love to teach! I have made it my goal for over 20 years to share my passion for music as well as my knowledge with my students. I teach many different genres of music and want my students to enjoy their music while they are learning and growing as musicians. I teach all levels of voice and beginning/intermediate piano.

I am also a licensed Paraprofessional and have 7 years of experience working with Individuals with Developmental Disabilities. My full-time work is in Vocational Education and counseling for young adults with developmental disabilities. I believe music (like everything else) should be accessible to ALL!
