Private Music lessons IN

Voice, Piano, Violin, Viola, Songwriting

I am a certified instructor in the body-based Somatic Voicework, the LoVetri Method. I have had extensive training in classical music and contemporary styles such as pop, rock, R&B, soul, musical theater and jazz and blues.

I work with children and adults of all ages and levels. In addition to focusing on technique, I work with students on improving their stage performance and original artistry. I provide many performance opportunities each semester including my biannual studio student showcases. 

Private lessons CAn be located in the convenience of your home

I recommend at least an hour weekly for adults/older children or for the more advanced and serious younger students. 75, 90 minute and 2 hour sessions are also available. 

Lessons are offered in the following locations:

  • Home studio in the heart of Los Angeles

  • In-Home lessons

  • Skype/Facetime

Nicole has been so helpful in developing my vocal skills. She is a pleasure to work with and is very relatable and excellent at explaining vocal concepts. Would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to work on their skills!

Nicole has been an amazing instructor so far. She tries her best to really help her students achieve their goal. I’ve only been studying with her for a couple months now and she’s the best. I recently went to an audition for this music program, and she 100% prepared me for it.
