Nicole C.

Clearwater, FL

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole c
ontinued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State School Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€™s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Clearwater, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original rock band. In this band, Nicole writes songs, sings, plays piano, and drums (not all at the same time). Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, Full drum kit, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 61 key Casio Keyboard for household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an Epiphone Electric Guitar with 30w amplifier. Can also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

My daughter is 13 and recently started taking Ukulele lessons with Nicole. She just LOVES her. Nicole has a terrific connection with kids and is very patient, but at the same time is able to keep pushing them ahead and doesn't allow them to stagnate. We couldn't be more pleased with the training and guidance that she has provided. Also, she has been very flexible with us when we have had to change practice times due to hectic schedules and she has NEVER been late.

Cheryl is remarkable. She engaged with my 6 year old nephew immediately. She made it fun for him and he had a great timeand, all the while he was learning much more than I expected for a first lesson. Cheryl has a lovely way of building trust. She is a skilled and talented musician and teacher.
I highly recommend Cheryl.

Nathan M.

Largo, FL

About Nathan

Music is my passion. I began taking piano lessons at the age of 8 (I'm 24) and continued through college to obtain a Music Studies degree at the University of South Florida. I learned music theory, took advanced piano lessons, and learned a bit of jazz as well. I played in a local band in Tampa for about 2.5 years. I also have experience in percussion, having been in marching band in high school. I have taught percussion sections at 2 different high schools, and I am currently co-teaching the percussion section at Indian Rocks Christian School in Largo, FL. I like to compose my own style of mu
sic as well, mixing classical and jazz. I'm also a big movie soundtrack fan! I am comfortable teaching just about anything related to music or piano that my student would like to learn, from reading notes and rhythms on sheet music to the proper technique of playing piano or certain percussion instruments, etc. I have a very relaxed, laid-back personality, but my passion for music is ever-growing.
