I’m a very well-rounded musician! I have a degree from DU in jazz studies and classical percussion. I was one of the first women to play drum set for a world class drum corps (DCI) and a world class percussion ensemble (WGI). In the past, I’ve performed at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Indianapolis Colts Stadium, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Denver City Hall, and Carnegie Hall.

You’ll currently find me drumming with the DENVER BRONCOS at Empower field!

Anyways, enough about me! Look, here’s my outlook/philosophy on teaching: my legacy won't be the videos I've made or the shows I've played on—life isn’t all about me. I hope my legacy will be seen through the lives of students that I helped touch. If you’re looking for someone who truly cares about your well being, you’ve come to the right place.

I can’t wait to meet you!

    Nikki is a very patient and skilled individual who will work tirelessly to help drummers and percussionists achieve their goals. She knows her stuff and will take her students playing to the next level. I highly recommend studying with Nikki.

    “Niki is a very patient and understanding, and is one of the best instructors I’ve had. She’s been able to show me how to play different genres of music on the set, and how they correlate with the music I’m playing. She’s also coached me in my drumline, showing me and explaining things you can’t learn from any textbook, which is pretty difficult to do with percussion.”

    Frequently asked questions

    Every individual is different and that's awesome! I make goals with my students to better themselves as a person and as a musician. Any skill level or age is welcome!

    -Some students prepare for college or honor band auditions and need instriction in order to reach that next level.

    -Some students need some guidance as they explore expressing themselves through music.

    -Some students play for purely fun and bring in their own tunes in; they just want to learn how to jam!

    You're unique. Let's find out what you're looking for!
