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.

BEST TEACHER EVER! So far i've had two classes and I regret nothing! Nicole is so knowledgeable,patient,fun, and encouraging. I knew from reading all of the wonderful reviews that I would be in good hands but actually experiencing it just validated that to the next level. Give Nicole a chance and you will be happy you did. The passion is there and she is very accommodating to many styles of music. Thanks Nicole!

Laura is exactly the kind of teacher I was looking for. She customizes our lessons to my goals and current abilities. She has an amazing ability to make one feel good about progress at the same time she pushes you toward higher levels of performance. I thoroughly enjoy the lessons and practice I have. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to explore piano or who wants to become a serious performer.

I took piano twice as a youth, and never really got it. I am doing it again at age 60, and am absolutely loving the approach that Laura uses. I find myself totally excited about the process and enthused that I will actually get it this time. I cannot recommend Laura highly enough.

I have done voice lessons twice before, first in Seattle, and second in Phoenix. Laura is BY FAR the best voice instructor of the three. I feel that I am finally "getting my voice". She is incredibly helpful in coaching me to get the proper tone, and to really learn the art of singing.

Nikki L., Sarasota, Florida

Fulfilling a lifelong dream, I started taking piano lessons a year ago with Nikki L. I started from scratch not knowing anything and here I am, a year later, still at it! Because of her teaching skills and ability to measure my progress and competence, I am well into Book 2 of "Adult Piano Adventures." Her firm, but encouraging approach during each lesson has been a positive step for me by offering both praise and criticism when due. More importantly, she keeps me focused in such a way that I actually like to practice! Also, her clear instruction and guidance regarding music theory adds a new dimension to this hobby and offers meaningful insight into the learning process. I strongly recommend Nikki L.for piano instruction for any age group and for any level!

I have seen Ms. Betty's students perform every year. Her students are well
prepared and the presentation is always enjoyable. She picks appropriate repertoire in voice and piano.
Brenda Louise H. Sarasota, FL

About Brenda Louise

Consider the advantages of studying music privately! Here in my Sarasota home, the atmosphere is quieter than having a lesson in a public music business establishment. In a private atmosphere, you, the student and I, your teacher are better able to concentrate and hear one another. A current member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association,) I hold a B. S. in Music from Adelphi University located in Garden City, NY. I've been teaching piano and voice since 2002 to students 5 years old and older. Student recitals are held twice yearly at my home. Students learn music appreciation, music history, genres, artists, and composers from materials here in my music library. Voice students will rehearse periodically with a professional accompanist and perform with a professional ...
