I love seeing people opening up their creative energy and their voices! Our voice can actually tell much more about us than we could think. And knowing how to use that voice is pure magic that I'm happy to share with those who are ready!

    Nika is a great vocal teacher! She helped me start from scratch, unleash my potential and, most importantly, love my voice! It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or an already advanced student, Nika will find an approach to everyone. If you have problems with intonation or want to work on your vocal range - she will see what's exactly needed and will help you craft your vocal skills in vocals and increase self-confidence!

    I took my first steps in singing with Nika and I’m so grateful for the lessons with her, because with her own beautiful voice being an example she inspired me so much and she gave me an opportunity to continue getting better at singing with her lessons! And now while I already sing with my band in front of big audience in big venues I continue to do the vocal warmups, exercises and technics that she taught me back in the day, because they are still so good! Nika is very inspiring, extremely talented and energetic, so I highly recommend to learn to sing with her.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I'd like to see what your goal is, how fast you want to get there and where you are at the moment.

Then, we'll elaborate a plan how to get there and will start working on it - yes, it's that simple!

You will be able to hear the difference - I have my recording studio at home so if you're coming to my place, we'll be recording, regularly. 

If you are looking to perform and improve your level of performance - then we will be working on that as well, first on technique, then add stage presence and control.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Singing in an internationally touring choir - 6 years

Musical school (singing+piano) - 5 years

Frontwoman in a live band - since 2005

Studio recording artist (lead vocals, backing vocals, vocal production) - since 2006

Teaching vocals - since 2013


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

If you have a specific time-limited goal and are planning to take more than 1 class a week we can elaborate a special deal - do not hesitate to contact me!


How did you get started teaching?

I had people lining up and begging me for a class. I couldn't resist and decided to help!


What types of students have you worked with?

All types. From other singers in bands and celebrities to people who were not even sure if they could sing in tune. They could after 2 classes - we just needed to train their ears a bit. There's no people who can't sing unless you were born mute.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a person who inspires you and who does not let you feel bored - we're not in school anymore and you should be always wanting to get better! This is why you are paying for it!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your goal? Why do you need it?

If you don't know then who knows?
